The Doctor and I were quite excited about a success story today!
One of a patient who started a natural cycle with us had one mature egg last week. After the ICSI, it fertilized and when it reached to the 8-cell stage, the PGD test was performed. It was on a Sunday, and I worked alone in the lab; I biopsied one blastomere and sent it out for a 24 chromosome genetic testing. I worked very carefully, and put all my hopes on "this" one embryo.
I couldn't wait to see the results due to a single embryo with a 50 and 50 percent chance! Luckly, it was a healthy embryo AND it continue to reach to a very very good blastocyst stage!
Gorgeous! the embryo looked pretty! and it has already been tested! And as of today, the pregnancy test result was in!
Congradulations!! she got pregnant! how lucky is she and how excited I am for her. No one knows that more than a hundred procedures had to be done since the moment I "recieved" this egg until the moment of transfering it back into the Mom's womb. I don't just do one rountine procedure but all the possible procedures I could have done. I do not allow any missing details or allowed any careless errors to happened because I know how precious this "one and only" is to her parents.
I have passed this difficult task and I am prepared and looking forward to meet with any challenges I might encounter in the future! I am very proud of Our lab, Our Doctor, and Myself!
