The dog ate my homework

I wrote out a lengthy blog post via the blogger app yesterday and randomly, it didn't save. I was miffed to say the least.

So - in a nutshell -

Today I am 2dp5dt. Which means the novelty of egg transfer has worn off and I'm now just fretting.

We retrieved 7 eggs last Wednesday (not great, considering my AMH) and donated 4 and kept 3. All of our 3 fertilised and were grade 1 embies by Friday. By early Saturday they were still grade 1 (7, 8 and 9 cell) so they suggested we go to blast on Monday. By early Monday we had an early blast and one good morula and one not so-speedy morula. The suggestion was we go back in the afternoon to see if the first two had made it to full blast stage or go ahead and put them in that morning - which is what we did.

Yesterday I felt tons of twinges in my ovaries and sides but realise that its most probably the pessaries - blah.

Here are our puppies:


  1. Yay! Glad everything went so well and you are now in the wait :). Good luck!! Keep busy!! I have my fingers crossed for you. And I think it's awesome you donated eggs. I wish I produced good enough eggs to be able to do something like this. If I was 5 years younger and had a reproductive system that actually did what it's suppose to I think I would. Maybe in my next life :)

    1. Thanks Meela! If it doesn't work I'm donating again. I'm also asking for a higher dose of menopur....

      Hope you're doing ok xxx

  2. Glad it all went well! Now the waiting game which we all know is the killer part. I hope you rest and relax and try not to think to much about all your symptoms. Wishing you both a fast two week wait!
    Lots of love!

    1. 3dp5dt and already obsessing ekk!

      Not long till your appointment :-)

  3. now see, despite your bloody elitist jargon, i DID work out that you have wee puppies inside you and for once, that's a good thing, YAY! how long am i crossing my fingers for?

  4. Till next Wednesday! I think I was so excitable when I saw you Friday as I'd just found out they were grade 1 - that's the best!
