IVF #1 S/A

I literally just got the call from my clinic about my hubby's sperm numbers from his sample given before my retrieval, so here goes.

Before washing:
Concentration: 85 million (normal = more than 20 million; best = more than 90 million)
Motility: 51% (normal = more than 50%; best = more than 60%)
Morphology: 29% abnormal (normal = less than 70% abnormal)
Forward Progression: 3 (It's a scale from 1 to 4 with 4 being the best and 2.5 being average)

After washing:
Concentration: 17.6 million
Motility: 95%
Morphology: 9% abnormal
Forward Progression: 4 (That's amazing!)

It's not as amazing as some of his others, but the fact that it's IVF and not IUI makes me happy--you really only need one per egg and they're put together in a very small space. So I'd say 15 million sperm to fertilize 8 eggs is pretty good odds. LOL

When do you get your fert report? Good luck with everything. When is ET?

I'll be getting the report later today (I can't wait!!!!!) and then ET will either be tomorrow (Friday) or Sunday. I personally am hoping for Sunday because day 5 transfers tend to be more successful and it also means I don't have to miss work and be loopy/drugged out on a Friday night. lol
