We got our 5 day results today and I’m cautiously optimistic for now! We had about half of the embryos that didn’t make it. The embryologist said that they “arrested” on day 3 but they had prepared us for a likely total pre-freeze loss of about 50% on the day of retrieval. Our office only calls on day 1 and then 5 and 6.
We have 2 blasts at this point. Both graded 5BB. Not excellent but definitely doable!
Even with the preparation, it was a bit of a blow to see the numbers crumble, but I was so relieved to hear there were any viable at all! Now we just have to wait for the final count and then a couple of weeks for the genetic testing results. So much waiting and counting!!!
5 are still cooking. I should probably have waited to post all of the numbers, but I needed to tell SOMEONE! I’m working away from home this week with long work hours and have no one here that knows. So, I’ll probably be posting again tomorrow. ☺️
Meanwhile, I’m starting to think about how many I should transfer. 38 years old with failed IUI history, but this is my first IVF. ....looks like more googling
