    I had 10 mature eggs. 6 Fertilised. 3 made it to blast.

    Out of the two transfers with these blasts I got a BFP both times.

    First fresh transfer BFP then m/c

    Next frozen cycle two transfered bfp with singleton (Im now 19+ weeks pregnant)

    So if you look at the stats for me of the number that fertilised 50% made it to blast.

    Personally I would rather take embryos to blast.

    Big hugs the embryo growth stage I found to be very traumatic. I did find the two week wait a little easier. Then was surprised to find that the wait to the 7wk viability scan to be the worst for me of all.

    The Wifey

    The other thing I feel helped me get a bfp after transfer was

    * bed rest for 48 hours after transfer
    * asprin daily (see your doc)
    * valium on day of transfer (see your doc)\
    * having my progesteron checked throughout 1st trimester and increasing support if needed.

    Best of luck!

    Thanks everyone for your responses I am still nervously waiting for the next report on our embies in 48hrs but I feel like we're still in the game

    The embies were made using ICSI, because we used Microsorted sperm (a laser separates xx from xy's) so there is a 90% chance that each of our 4 embies is a girl..

    The PGD (pre-genetic-diagnosis) does take place at day 3 and the results are available from day 5. This guarantees which gender the embies are and can also check for chromosomal problems..

    Thanks for the tips Mrs Mermaid. I have been advised by my Dr to stay off my feet for 3 days post transfer, and I have valium (and acupunture) arranged for the ET. I am also on progesterone suppositories already in preparation.

    But they didnt advise me to start taking asprin. I have heard of other women being advised to take this.. when did you start with the asprin? Would it be too late to start now?

    Thanks again for all the replies

    Hi Ladies,
    Mrs Mermaid- Just curious about bed rest after ET. I walked up to the shop with DH after ET on wednesday morning (07/10). Though I was reluctant to go for a walk but DH said I need to move around, it's good for me. When I read about bed rest 48 hours after ET...I feel so stupid...I should've listen to myself instead of DH. Today is 5 days before my AF due (16/10) and I feel cramping and aching since yesterday. It's the same symptom every month just a week before my AF due.
    I'm trying not to stress myself but I feel really bad.

    Mrs H - Lots of woman get a BFP with no bedrest. It was something I felt was right for me. It is such an emotional time that I really wanted to nurture myself.

    Wifey I think I started taking asprin a few days before ET. I really cant remember now, Sorry.
