Day 3 Embryo Update

OK, so it was a little weird when the doctor called us at 8:30 this morning and we were lounging in bed watching a 90210 rerun on SoapNet. But he had good news, so I got over it.

All 7 of our embies are still cooking! We've got 4 8-cell Grade 1 embryos (our clinic grades on a 1 to 5 scale, with 1 being the best), 1 6-cell Grade 1, 1 5-cell Grade 2, and 1 4-cell Grade 2. We're headed for a Day 5 transfer on Tuesday, and hopefully (please please please!) will have a couple to freeze.

After we got the news, the Mr. and I went for a long walk around the reservoir and tried to figure out whether we want to put back 1 or 2 on Tuesday. I think it's probably going to have to be a game-time decision.

Crazy days.....but we both feel incredibly blessed.

This is so fantastic! I really hope you get some frozen embies out of this. I'll be waiting to see what you decide about the transfer. Good luck!

Those are great embryos! I'm only going for eSET myself, but considering all options is certainly wise.

Good luck!
