Biopsy & Freeze, Day 6

We have one more frozen embryo! Our fourth embryo turned into a great blastocyst today, so they added another to our three. We will have results from our biopsies in the next couple weeks. They will call us once they get emailed results from the testing center.

Here is the “play-by-play” from Trigger Day to Day 6:

Trigger Day: 32 follicles larger than 9mm

Egg Retrieval: 17 eggs retrieved, 14 are mature

Day 1: 13 fertilized

Day 3: 8 looked good, 1 didn’t cleave

Day 5: 3 good blasts, 3 early blasts, 1 compacted morula

Day 6: 1 good blast (plus 3 frozen blasts from day 5)

And I thought my medicine cabinet was full before…

Here it is! The complete list of medication and other stuff coming from the pharmacy bringing this bill to $5753.07 with insurance covering a whopping $9.38 – oh yeah, and they covered the BC pills, too.
