IVF#1 D28: #microblogging Monday

What I just googled:

“odds of pregnancy with single embryo transfer of PGS normal embryo”

“one PGS normal embryo”

Yep. Normal.

I was totally caught off guard with the results call which made me break my cardinal rule and cry at work.

I had gotten a call from an unknown number on my work line and ignored it. They are usually recruiters and I am not interested in changing positions at this time. After a meeting I saw I had a missed call and voicemail on my personal phone. I figured it was the same person, since the number wasn’t in my phone as a saved number (I don’t know what number my nurse called from- her office usually comes up with her name). I was walking to a (big, important) meeting with a co-worker (who is also a friend, thank goodness) and listened to the message.

I should have excused myself when I heard her voice, but they told us 10 business days to results and today is only the 5th business day. I figured it was a check in call. But no. “I just wanted to call and let you know your embryo is normal”. I didn’t listen to the rest of the message (I have now, nothing important followed that). I started shaking. I stumbled out something to my co-worker about how that wasn’t a call I was expecting and that I wouldn’t have listened to it just then. I ended up putting my things down in the meeting and crying in the bathroom for a minute or two before the meeting started. Then I called hub and told him the news.

At this point, we are hoping for a successful transfer ending in a happy, healthy baby. If that is the case, it will likely be my last.



  1. Yay for one healthy embie!! I'm hoping this embie is your next baby. *hugs*

  2. Yes! Congratulations on the good news.

  3. I'm so thrilled for you. I have faith that this is the one.
