The Current Break Down

It could be better, but it could me much worse at this point:

  • 13 eggs retrieved
  • 7 mature :(
  • 4 fertilized
  • 3 of them are grade 1 (my clinic's version of super duper great) as of day 3
  • 1 is grade 1.5 (it's like an A- rather than an A+, not too shabby)
  • Day 5 transfer scheduled on Thursday
  • Putting back two
  • And PRAYING that I'll have something to freeze!
  • Stay strong embies!
I hate how this is a numbers game. I've never been good at Math!

I think it sounds pretty good. Grade 1 embies are fantastic.

Fingers crossed for you!

Shelby - the numbers may look disappointing to you, but I think they look pretty good. From 4 fertilized embryos to have all 4 be good grade day 3 embryos, and growing well towards day 5 is amazing. (Remember my stats? 31 eggs, 14 fertilized, 12 on day 3, 2 on day 5, 6 on day 6, and 4 after PGD).

Your grade 1 embryos sound fantastic! Good luck for your transfer - I hope all goes well!

Sounds good to me. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Cassandra said...

Hooray for super duper great!

Seems like you are better off with 3 grade 1 embryos than 20 lower-grade embryos. Quality, not quantity.

Good luck!!

hooray for those grade 1 embies, that's excellent news. I hate how its a numbers game too... but I'm gonna say something that's often said to me - all it takes is one - and I hope it happens for you!!

Hope you also have a frostie or two to freeze!
