5 of us are home March 11, 2008

Posted by The Mom in IVF.

At 3pm Dr Statistics transferred 2 blasts into my triple lining uterus. There are 2 embryos in the lab that might become something worthy of freezing tomorrow & they will ring me if they do the freeze.

I had a very interesting conversation with the embryologist today. I asked her to compare the stats for the day 3 with those for day 5 and she told me that the 2 nicest looking embryos on day were a 9 & an 8 cell. The 9 cell didn’t progress past 9 cells & the 8 cell didn’t make it past day 4. This completely validated my decision to do a blast cycle. None of the frozen embryos made it past day 3. This validated the decision to do another fresh cycle rather than a frozen one. All of this has given M great peace about the decision, especially the day 3/5 comparison.

Beta is on Good Friday.

Yay for you, the blasts, and the wise decision! May Good Friday bring good news, indeed.

Amazing news. Delighted to here there are two in there and I hope they snuggle themselves in there nicely. I really F-ing hope this is a success story waiting to happen.

I found your blog through a forum we both use. I have been following your story and I am so thrilled to hear that today went so well. Congrats on the vindicated decision to go to blast btw! Will be keeping my fingers crossed for Good Friday (and the following 8 months hopefully! πŸ™‚ )
