mantra

I said at the beginning of this cycle that I really wanted to be positive. I really want to believe that this can and will work. I've struggled with that (reasonably, I think) when things haven't gone as planned, but I'm a work in progress myself so I think it's ok for me to struggle.

Before I went in for retrieval, I said over and over to myself for days, "healthy sperm, healthy eggs, healthy embryos, healthy babies."

Over and over.

Fertilization Report:

Of the 9 eggs retrieved, 9 were mature.

We did half ICSI, half unassisted fertilization.

Of the 5 that we ICSI'd... 4 fertilized.

Of the 4 we let go naturally... 4 fertilized!

We have 8 embryos!

healthy sperm, healthy eggs, healthy embryos, healthy babies...

What you put out there, you get back. Keep up with the positivity.
