A few days late but I'm trying to capture the moments...
My ET was on Tuesday, Dec 13th. Anxiety ruled the morning since we hadn't had any updates on our 7 embies since Friday. I was trying so hard to go with the rule, that no news is good news! But had a hard time convincing my mind to shut down.
When the RE came in to discuss "the plan", he gave us the long-awaited update. 4 embies didn't make it to day 5. :( The 3 growing were: 2 blasts - rated as "great" and "good" and 1 morula (a day behind in development). I didn't ask for more specifics because I was thrilled that we had made it this far. My hopes and prayers had been for at least 1 blast to transfer and not only did we have 1 but TWO BLASTS!!!!! He asked us how many we'd like to transfer. We asked his thoughts. He explained that while the morula is a day behind, he's seen morulas become healthy babies. And he went on to say while there would be a slight chance (<5%) of triplets, he thought we would "cross that bridge" if we came to it. He recommended to transfer all 3. We wholeheartedly agreed and transferred the 3 little ones!
My beta is next Thursday, Dec 22nd. Lots of time to dream, hope and pray! Snuggle in tight embabies!
