I have my appointment time for transfer. 1:30pm on Tuesday which is day 5.
So today is day 3 and I got an embryo update. And I'm gobsmacked. All 10 are still going strong, 8 or 9 cells each and looking exactly how you want them to look on day 3. All rated as "good" quality.
Gotta say, I wasn't expecting that. I was expecting maybe about half of them to be looking good and half to be looking a little questionable. We can't expect them all to make it to blasts, but looking at them, he can't pick out any that he would predict to be the losers.
Before we learned how many eggs were retrieved, I somehow had my mind set on and hoping for a total of 8 transferable embryos. 2 for this attempt and 6 to put on ice. As soon as I learned that we had less eggs than last time, I started hoping for 4, maybe 5. But wow, we might actually get the 8!!! How awesome would that be?
I'm bouncing off the walls, and then feeling a bit nauseous from the various chemicals in my body. Getting my hopes up WAYYYYYY too high right now!
