Day 3 Update (What happened to day 1 and 2??)

Sorry I left you all hanging.  It’s been a crazy week at school and I just haven’t had time.  We had back to school night one night and I’ve been running around all week.

So we had 10 retrieved.  On Wednesday I got a call from my nurse that only 6 of the 10 were mature.  I was really disappointed because I thought with my E2 as high as it was at least 8 would be mature.  But it wasn’t the case.  HOWEVER, of the 6 FOUR of them fertilized!  This is better then my last 2 IVF cycles!  It’s the best I’ve done in 2 years.   This is big (and hopefully good) news.

Yesterday I got my day 2 update and we really had to talk about things.   I had 2 4-cell embryos of very good quality.  I also had 2 3-cell embryos of fair quality.  Not too bad.  We discussed PGD, freezeing, etc.   I’ve decided that if all 4 make it to day 5 blasts we’ll send them out for PGD.  If only 3 make it we’ll transfer 2 and freeze 1.   If 2 make it we’ll transfer those and if 1 makes it we will transfer it.  I feel like we’ll have the best chance with day 5 blasts.

I’m freaking out a little bit because I hate to wait until Sunday to see how they are doing.  It’s scary wiaitng.   If they don’t call me Sunday morning I have to be there at 9 for a 9:30 transfer..   That means between 1-3 made it.   If I get a call Sunday morning it means 1 of 2 things.   Either all 4 made it and we’re doing PGD with a freeze.   Then we’ll do FET next month.   The other option is that none of the embryos made it to blast and I have nothing to transfer.  I have to say, I’m hoping for no call.  That way I know at least SOMETHING made it.  Sunday is going to be a BAD day for me.

I got another update today.  As of noon all 4 are still kicking.  I realize that most embryos are lost between day 3 and day 5 so I have a long way to go. But my update was good.  They like to see between 6-8 cells on day 3.   I have 2 8-cell very good quality embryos, 1 8-cell fair quality, and 1 9-cell fair quality so I’m feeling pretty good about that.  I’m hoping for 2 to make it to Sunday but I’ll even take one!

So please keep me and the embryos in your thoughts.   I’m hoping we get something good out of this cycle!
