Round 2

Following our negative result last week, we've transferred a large chuck of change over to SCI for round 2.  We didn't want to waste anytime trying again.  Getting the ball rolling again really helped us have something to look forward to, rather than dwelling on the failed attempt.

This time around, they are going to take 4 of the frozen 2 day old embryos and let them try to develop into 5 day embryos.  If any develop that far, they will use a laser to assist in hatching to improve our chances.  SCI says that they have a 60% success rate with this process, so fingers crossed.

Since only some of embryos survive the thaw and even fewer develop to blastocyst, we're likely looking at having one good embryo.  As long as we don't have zero, we're happy.  If anyone has experience with this, we're curious to know how many you thawed vs. how many made it to blastocyst.

We are scheduled to transfer again near the end of next month.  In the meantime, we just wait!

  1. Hey Glad to hear you are trying again so soon, thats exactly what we did! We had a negative first and then did exactly the same process that you are going through with our son Beau. We had 4 embryo's left which were defrosted, then left to get to blastocyst stage and laser assisted hatching too....we ended up transferring 2 good quality embryos and one ok one....so 3 in total, we don't know which one took but it worked!! Looking forward to hearing good news soon as we are just 5 weeks and 4 days so will be in Delhi at the same time! Good luck!!!

  2. I really hope this time works out for you guys. We also just sent a chunk of change over for our try number 2. Here's hoping we meet in 9 months in Delhi and that our kids have a play-date in the nursery.

  7. We got our beloved daughter during our first attempt and then froze the rest.

    7 months ago we decided to go for a sibling for Alwina and luckily we are now 31 weeks with twins. For this attempt we transferred 4 frozen embryos and there were three of them that survived. We had to do a reduction in week 10-11. The embryos transferred wasn´t that good quality but three out of four made it!!!

    So

    There is a lot of luck and of course need of good, experienced doctors to be successful.

    Good luck - hope to hear some good news in a couple of weeks.
