Congrats Shimmer!

I got my first numbers back at 244. Did my test today and they even ran it as STAT so my clinic would get the results within 2 hours. I am in Houston and the clinic is in Dallas. I sent an email letting my nurse know what was going on and that if she didn't see the fax to please call (we had to call Thursday). I got an email at 2:30 saying she didn't see them and she would look for them tomorrow. I even stopped by and confirmed they were faxed. The lab tech said I had nothing to worry about and the numbers look great (bless her heart for sharing that much).

Am I wrong to be annoyed? When you spend thousands of dollars and you are waiting for a result that only they can provide AND it's the weekend, you would think they would make the call. I'm staying calm because the goal is to get this little bean here safely. I just needed to know if I am overreacting or wrong for feeling this way.

Neha, they have many parameters to measure quality of embryos. Grade one is supposed to be highest, grade 2 embryo means the embryo quality is slightly below grade 1. Mine were grade 2 at 3-day stage, but then caught up and become grade 1 by the time they reached day 5 stage. The quality differs due to egg quality, sperm quality and lab conditions.. hope this helps.. frankly all this is courtesy google.. you can ask your doc if there is something u can do ( I am not sure)..
Kawan, congrats! 244 sounds good! It is frustrating when doctors and clinics take things lightly cause we are just another ‘case’ for them.. but you rightly said, staying calm is key cause it’s not going to change your situation in anyway.. pls take care .. and wish you all the best!

Hi. Mind if I join? I've started the meds for FET last Monday and I am a complete ivf noob. I had baseline cd3 scan at Endo thickness was 6.94. started estradiol, zpack and Prednisone. Am going back on Monday to see if lining looks good and for some acupuncture. Nervous as heck. Using donor eggs and donor sperm as I'm 45 and didn't want to chance it with my eggs and my DH has mfi.

Gem ...thanks for the information....i went through google but thing is i couldnt get any information on how to make it to grade 1. My husband's sperm quality is really bad and we cant do anything. I asked doctor on what i can do to improve quality and she has no answer.

Baby dust guys!

There are vitamins they can take but honestly they don't work that well. My DH has morphology issues and took some for about 4 to 5 months and it didn't improve anything. The only solution would be ICSI so that they choose the good sperm for fertilizing

Neha, my hubby was prescribed with folic acid and COQ3/10 and his sperm count as well as motility improved dramatically in 2 months (between IUI with 1.5 million count to IVF with 60 million count)! I thought Doctors sometimes prescribe vitamins like COQ3/10 for women too .. maybe consult another doctor in the meanwhile?
AFM: Got my scan done. One strong heartbeat, triplet has vanished and twin not developed yet (only yolk sac, no fetal pole), so likely to be a singleton.. am happy that I didn’t need to take any decision about reduction.. but a bid sad about the twin .. hope this singleton grows well.. :)
all the best ladies!

Gem - you're 100% correct. I got the call and the second number was 569. We're excited that things are progressing well so far. I'm sorry about the triplet and twin. Praying for a healthy singleton! A friend had this happen to her and now she's just trying to find the energy to keep up with her 4-year-old!

SEL - How exciting! When is your FET date or do you have one yet? Baby dust to you!

Neha - I agree with Gem, you may want to consult another doctor to see if you can get a more positive opinion.
