FOUR – we have four eggs! I am so relieved. Four is my lucky number.
Also had a chat to Greg (the embryologist) before they knocked me out and he has said I can have photos of my embies this time. He also said they have finally received the IMSI machine so will be doing IMSI for this cycle.
The IMSI basically helps them identify the very best sperm because it is a significantly higher powered microscope. And I have just read that with sperm issues it can double the chance of success from straight ICSI!
The “Gorgeous Lab Technician” who Chris has written about also just popped her head in to say that we have around 2 million sperm! That is double from our last cycle so plenty for them to choose the VERY best from.
So the fear has subsided and is replaced once again with so much hope and positivity.
Now come on eggies and spermies fertilise and bring us our baby!
