6, 5, 4 — YES! WE! CAN!

This morning's transfer went beautifully! Minor snafu, they couldn't thaw the embryos until I signed the consent forms. Obviously, if I weren't an out of town patient, this would have been done prior to today. If they had let me know, I could have gone there yesterday and signed them. So, although I got there at 8am, I didn't have the transfer until nearly noon.

The embryos thawed perfectly. They thawed 3 and they all survived the thaw. (My biggest worry.) These are day 2 embryos, and we had a 6 cell, a 5 cell, and a 4 cell. Tiny bit of fragmentation on the 4 cell. None on the others. They also did assisted hatching on them.

I feel very hopeful! My boobs hurt already. ;-)

Thank you all for your support.

More later!

Here from L&F. Just wanted to let you know I was thinking of you! (((HUGS)))

I've had a failed IVF and I've been told I have to use donor eggs. Your story is inspiring to me. Thanks!
