We arrived to the clinic, with a mighty full bladder and were faced with good news, after good news.

All 12 embryos were still around, 7 had made it to blastocyst, and a few others were still doing well. We were told that the odds on more than half making it to blast was rare. Hard to remember all the great compliments we got on the embryos, but lets just say the embryologist was impressed with our over achievers. She compared our last set of three dayers to when these guys were three dayers and said it was like "night and day." We had THREE perfect 4AA blasts, and four 4AB's. Today she froze a 4AA, and the four 4AB's. The other five will be watched until tomorrow and if they make it to blast, will be frozen as well.

We went in fully intending to transfer 3 blasts, but the RE was highly against it. She told me over and over that these embryos were different and she didn't want to chance a high risk trip pregnancy. She said with my age and the quality of these embies, that she would normally only transfer one, but allowed us to transfer the two. So, we took her and the embryologists advice and transferred TWO 4AA PERFECT blasts. Now we wait, and hope, and pray. Obviously I am ecstatic at how different this turned out and how many blasts we were able to freeze. We have been blessed, now we wait, pray, and hope.
