Sigh...only 6 fertilized. Not the stellar report I was hoping for. On one hand I am grateful we had 17 eggs to start with, cuz it is scary to think of how few embryos we might have gotten had we started with less eggs. But I also very much dislike such a low fertilization percentage.
So is is my eggs? His sperm? Is there something else going on that we don't know about? Or is this just the way it goes?
I don't know what to feel right now. I know we only need 1 good one. Maybe I am overreacting. But 6 seems like such a fragile number. Especially given we don't know anything yet about quality.
It is times like these I realize I don't know enough about IVF to know when to worry and when not to worry.
Oh, this roller coaster is hard sometimes. Okay- All the time.
UPDATED: My nurse didn't tell me and I didn't think to ask how many of the 17 were mature. When I talked with her next, I asked and she said 13 were mature- I can live with that. So, for some reason 1/2 of the mature didn't want to fertilize even with icsi.
