Thanks all for the welcome and congrats Aneczka on your positive results! How exciting for you For those who asked - my BT is booked for the 18th of July but no way can I hold out to then - wouldn't my period arrive before then? I usually only have a 11-12 day LP... and the BT is booked 16 days after EPU... but maybe that will be different with the artificial cycle.

I just checked the dates they gave me at EPU, my BT isn't until 24th!!! That's a whole 2 weeks after transfer! That two week wait is gonna suck lol!
I'm really nervous about today's phone call from the clinic, I have a horrible feeling we've lost more of them. I'm starting to worry whether we'll even have one left for transfer.
Is there usually a big drop off between day 1 & 3? We had 6 successfully fertilised on day 1, should I preparing myself for only one or two left?

Try not to stress cue I'm also on my first cycle and only had 2 eggs collected. Both fertilized and on day 3 we had the choice on which one to put in. You've got plenty so I'm sure you will get some positive news today. I think that its more common that they don't make it to day 5 after fertilization rather than day 3.
I had one transferred on Friday and I am waiting on a call today to see if the embie that wasn't transferred made it to day 5 and is good enough to freeze. It was a little slower to grow so I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't make it.

Hi Sharlee, yep, transfer on Wednesday I hope.
I just spoke to the lab and am a bit deflated after hearing that 7/14 embryos (by day 3) are now low grade. They'll let them keep growing to day 5 but it is unlikely they'll improve. The remaining 7 are average quality (6 x 8 cell grade 3, 1 x 6 cell grade 3). Now to decide how many to freeze, how many to leave to day 5 (out of the 7 average ones).
What grade embryo gave you ladies a successful pregnancy? Nervous x

Thanks everyone. We're doing a day 5 transfer so I know we'll lose a couple along the way. I guess we only really need 1. I have no idea what grade they are, they didn't say when I spoke to the clinic on Saturday. I'll ask when they call today.
Milly - I can't give any advice about freezing because it's all new to me!

I just got my call and my other embie that wasn't transferred got to 8 cells and then didn't make it any further. Hopefully the one we transferred fared better. It was 7 cells on day 3 but compacting nicely...

First injection this morning DH did a great job doing it! A bit sore but I am sure it was just the shock been the first 1!
