Transfer Update

Transfer went like a breeze. The best part is they give you more drugs to relax you AND no bursting bladder so I just fell asleep after ET!!

We transferred 4 8 cells (1 Grade 1 and 3 Grade 2). (The most 8 celled embies we have ever had was on our BFP cycle and then it was only one)

We froze THIRTEEN embies ranging from 8 to 5 cells (remember the rescue ICSI ones which will be a day behind). We have NEVER EVER frozen ANYTHING before in all previous 6 IVF cycles. I am amazed and of course very very happy.

We did have to do laser assisted hatching but Ive had to do that for ALL 6 cycles, including both DE cycles so I really dont know if that matters or what. I asked the doctor and he said the reason why lasers were invented were to do assisted hatching (jokingly of course). My previous doctor always made out that was a real issue. I dont know and I dont care, all I know is that we have 4 really good embies on board and Im still feeling upbeat about the whole cycle.

Had a burger and chips for lunch and had a rest, now we wait. Test day is 12 days from now, 18th May.

    Your babies are so cute 😉

    I think you should make this your profile picture on facebook, you know how everyone always has their kids on their facebook profile…

    It will have everyone guessing, that’s for sure! And how do they count 8 cells in there, looks pretty confusing to me!

    Good luck my friend, good good luck!

      Mash – remember you are only seeing it in 2D, you have to count the “top” and bottom” cells too.

    Your embies look great! Well done – especially with the ones that are frozen to! Maybe they will make a sibling? All the best for your 2ww, I see you test the day before my first scan. It will make it easy to remember for me. I’m still praying for your little miracle!
