I am a mom to amazing twin girls, a wife, and I work full time. I battled infertility for 2 years and over the course of treatments, a twin pregnancy, and raising twins I managed to gain about 80 lbs. I’ve lost about 50 lbs so far and would like to lose another 50 in my quest to become a hot mama.

We have petri dish babies!

Of the 34 eggs retrieved, 28 had ICSI, and 17 fertilized!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can't wait to get my next report on my petri dish babies tomorrow!!!!


  1. Thanks Lucy! Now I am just going to cross my fingers that they all turn into blasts!

    Looks like it was about the same fertilization rate as yours....about 60% of the ones that were mature. I'll take it!

  2. Wow, I don't know that much about it, but that sounds like alot! (Even if 60% mature!) Will be praying for continued success!

  3. Sorry Rachel,

    I've been in and out of the doctors office for OHSS. Not fun. We are apparently still going through with transfer tomorrow morning! I think the game plan changed though and we will only be transferring 1 embryo since my E2 is so high.

    I'm sure I'll blog about it from bed tomorrow morning!!! Sorry for slacking!

  4. I was also checking up on you! I'm hoping all went well today!

  5. Thanks A!! I updated my blog with the nitty gritty of the transfer.
