    Day 5 Today - So anxious!

    I started the IVF process in early September with the hopes of having a girl after 2 boys. I知 34 years old. I had egg retrieval on Thursday of last week, 27 follicles retrieved, 25 mature, 22 fertilized and as of today we have 9 embryos that made it to blastocyst. They said the embryologist expects us to have more embryos by tomorrow. I feel like I was sad to hear only 9 made it out of 22, I know that is likely normal but I知 so worried out of the 9, how many will test genetically normal and then out of those how many will me girls. I am just a ball of anxious nerves and we haven稚 told any friends or family what we are doing so I feel like I have no one to talk to besides my husband.

    Sorry to vent just needed to get it out! Any advice on 9 embryos is that good, bad?? Not sure what to feel today.

    9 embryos is great! That's nine possible chances at a healthy girl. I totally understand the anxiety of this whole process. I just got my genetic report last week for my embryos and I was crazy nervous waiting for it. You have a good chance of having some normal embies and some XX! Fingers crossed for you!!

    Yay! That's great you got more embryos! The wait is the worst. I highly recommend finding some kind of activity you enjoy to distract yourself.
    FX for some !
