Fertilisation and Blastocyst

The day after Egg Collection I had my feet up and was awaiting the phonecall from the clinic to see how many had fertilised.
23!
They had to do ICSI instead of IVF because it turns out the expensive sperm I bought online weren’t very good swimmers! Typical! So that’s another £1100 spent, but worth it to ensure something happened and we didn’t get a phone call this morning to say that none fertilised and all the eggs are now wasted!
Then I had to wait to see how many made it to day 5 and blastocyst stage.
16!
I now have 16 embryos in the freezer awaiting my Frozen Embryo Transfer.
