Hi ladies -
I am currently in my second round with IVF. My first attempt in January was positive, but I ended up pregnant with twins - both ectopic. I lost the left tube, but feel now that I'm OK with having one less tube to worry about this round. Here's my question for today. We had our egg retrieval yesterday and retrieved 12. 11 were mature, but only 4 fertilized! I did a day 5 transfer last time with the 2 and froze 1, but started with 6 fertilized on day 1. I know that I shouldn't harp on the fact that there were "just" 4. Any 4 of those could end up being our child - this is where I'm TRYING to keep my head. BUT I'm just wondering what experience you all have with how many embryos typically make it out to day 3 and day 5. I'm worried, naturally. Any help you can give is appreciated.
