May 31 - CD17 - ER - 8 eggs retrieved from right side
June 1 - day 1 embryo report - all 8 eggs were mature. 6 already showing signs of fertilization
June 2 - day 2 embryo report - 6 fertilized are all now 4-6 cells which is what they like to see for day 2. The other 2 did not fertilize.
June 3 - day 3 embryo report - They expect 8-10 cells by day 3. We have 1 @ 10 cell, 1 @ 9 cell and 4 @ 8 cell. She said that was very good news.
June 5 - Day 5 - transferred one 2cc blast and two compacting morulas
June 6 - day 6 - none made it to freeze so this is officially our last shot at this
June 9 - 4dp5dt - HPT was BFN
June 10 - 5dp5dt - HPT was BFN
June 11 - 6dp5dt - FRER HPT was BFN - starting to lose hope
June 12 - 7dp5dt - FRER HPT had the faintest second line (maybe I am imagining it?) possible BFP?
June 13 - 8dp5dt - Digital HPT on FMU was BFN. AF arrived with a vengeance this morning. It's not official until after tomorrow's beta but I am pretty sure we are done
June 14 - Beta #1
This was our last OHIP funded cycle and we can't afford to try again. I really wish IF treatment wasn't so damn expensive so that everyone who deserves a family could have a chance at one! Heartbroken.
