just got the call..only 4 maybe 5 have fertilised so we are a bit disappointed with that. Oh well this whole process is full of ups and downs isnt it. So the 5th one they are still watching as it showed signs of it but they cant say for sure at this point, so hopefully it will pull through. Our donor was a little disappointed too but I explained this is the uncertainty that is IVF so now we just have to hope they do their thing and make lovely blasts. uurgghh.

I can understand your disappointment @tuxcat when you were hoping all 10 might fertilise. Kudos for propping up your egg donor emotionally. You're a star. C'mon fifth little embryo. 4 or 5 is still great hun. I guess it's about adjusting your expectations now. Getting into the 5 precious little embryos headspace. Snap, crackle, pop little ones! Do you now have the nervous wait until day 3?
On the intralipid / egg thing - I was reading something yesterday on Dr Bravemans site about how the future of intralipids could include using Fish Oil as its less inflammatory (Omega 3s vs Omega 6 oils)...i don't like the idea of filling myself with the soybean/egg mix personally but am going give it another go next round. I wonder if ultra high dose fish oil could help (omega 3)? Anyway, hugs
