Thanks @Heyside. I agree, it must be spring!
StillHopeful - Thats great news hun those symptoms are what you want to see continuing too x
Keiko - So frustrating especially when people just putting it all down to our bodies just being different/awkward, I seem to get that response a lot to.
And you both had sticky embryo names. I better start thinking of some for next time
Day 3 report and I'm a little disappointed/nervous. I don't know why as they're still the best results I've had. They like them to be between 6-8 cells on day 3. I have 3 that are 8 cell but grade 3 so average quality. I have another 4 that are lagging a little at 5 cell, again grade 3. And the last one which is strangely still going but a whole day behind at 4 cell, and not looking great at grade 2. On the positive all 8 are still going. This is the most I've ever had still going at day 3. I just wanted more to be better quality I suppose. Will just have to wait and see what happens in the next day or two and transfer is scheduled for 9am on Saturday. I think I'm in need of some reassurance ladies 😔
That's great they are still going though @Ree888 come on lil embies! I don't know exactly how relevant quality is at times. If a poorer quality embryo had no chance of taking then they wouldn't transfer it. My clinic don't use grading. My transfer earlier in the year was a very neat looking Blastocyst. I was told it was perfect quality and they were really happy about it. Fast forward 4 weeks and it was a blighted ovum. Don't lose faith in the lil guys xoxo
Oh Ree, sending you big hugs lovely. Got my fingers crossed one of your little embies is pacing themselves for the long haul. Xx
@Ree888 Ooooh I know that emby anxiety too well. But you are still very much in the game, I reckon. I have read story after story of less than perfect looking embies that resulted in perfect bubs, and perfect looking embies that didn’t take. Yours are still growing and developing (and having some 8 cells awesome!), so there’s still plenty of hope for you yet! Will you get another report tomorrow? Or just go in on Sat and see what you have to work with then?
@Keiko2012 I just caught up on those donor responses and I can now understand why it is such a hard choice! ‘Genetically gifted’ – seriously?! I hope an awesome one comes up for you soon. How often do you get to see new profiles? Ugh – I hate having a body that doesn’t play by the rules too. Not cool!!
@beej79 Ouch, I can imagine that would have been a very hard appointment to get through. Hearing the words would certainly be a blow, even when you are preparing yourself for it. I feel like that conversation is coming up for us too, and it’s not a nice feeling. How are you feeling today?
@StillHopeful – Yay for darkening lines and symptoms! Can’t wait to hear your bt results
How are you feeling @MamaMell? Hope you’re not too sore after EPU.
