It Only Takes One

I just returned from my egg retrieval surgery and I'm afraid the news is not great. We only got one egg (which, of course, is better than no eggs).

I'm pretty woozy from the meds, so I'm going to take a nap now. I'll check back later and start catching up on my comments. Thank you to everyone for all the well wishes! Talk to you soon . . .

I'm with the others (and your title) - one may be disappointing, but that's all that is required! I understand your statistics for a successful IVF don't favour two embryos versus one. No, really!

You're wrong, no cheerleader here!

Just felt a little diddy was in order. :)

MamaSoon said...

Well you already know that millions and millions of ladies get pregnant across the world through sex but maybe you forgot that they ALL have just one egg each month. I've seen it again and again on my forum. One egg ---> One beautiful baby.

But enough with the happy talk. I know how much it sucks to hear that. My last cycle was supposed to net 10 eggs. Instead, only one was mature. Never understood why it happened but it did. It was a really crappy one too. Not like a good one egg.

I hope your fertilization report is good today! I'll be watching for it.
Awwww crap. I had one egg last cycle too. But a goo

Heather said...

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!

SAHW said...

You said it - it only takes one, and I really hope this will be the one that works for you!

Juicy said...

hmm. Maybe this is the one egg that is the total bad-ass of 'em all and it'll just do its job better than any other darn egg out there?

Good luck, I hope you get fantastic news about it soon.

Nit said...

You are right it only takes one :)

Hope you are resting up!!!
