day 5 transfer



I am taking my blood test on Thursday. I am scared but I am certain that my outcome will be great.  I have had so many ups and downs in this journey and I am anxiously waiting to be a mother.

I can't believe we have gotten this far with all of the trials and tribulations we have encountered. My husband being diagnosed with prostate cancer.  Our first fertility clinic destroying my husband’s frozen sperm the month he was to have his prostate removed.  The loosing of his second set of frozen sperm from a cryo bank.

I thought it could only get worse after 4 attempts to get fresh sperm from my husband and purchasing 2 back up donor vials. On our last attempt the day of my egg retrieval we were able to get fresh ones and my doctor was able to retrieve 19 eggs from me, and my husband’s fresh fertilized them all.

I thought our luck had changed until my doctor on day 3 told me that only 14 were growing successfully and he wanted to wait until day 5.  On day 5 he told me only “one” looked good for transfer.  I was disappointed but I am a believer.

My transfer was good. Now me and “Connie”, short for conception, my single egg and I are waiting anxiously for our doctor to tell us that we will be stuck together for another 9 months. I pray for strength and strength for all of you. Good luck to all of you and to all the little “Connies” out there.
