My CCRM IVF Journey

Our successful journey through IVF #2 at one of the world's top fertility clinics

We’ve Done All We Can

Posted by auntiem10 on January 13, 2011

Here they are … our transferred embryos!

The embryo on the bottom right is Embryo #15, our best blast and a 5AA (which was hatching). We saved our second-best embryo (a 6AA) for a future transfer and instead transferred Embryo #21, a 5BA. The 5AA re-expanded 95% after thawing, which is really good. The 5BA only moderately expanded at about 75%. The 5BA is a Day 6 blast, so that may have something to do with the slow expansion. Dr. Surrey said they both looked beautiful and he is optimistic. The embryologist said she sees twins result from embryos like ours, so we are happy that the professionals were happy with our blasts. As long as one sticks, we will be overjoyed.

Now I’m in bed for the next few days. I have more pictures, but this internet connection is slooooow, so I will post them from home this weekend. I’ll also write about transfer day later. (It’s hard to type while lying down!)

Thank you all SO much for thinking of us today!!! I will respond to your e-mails when I’m upright again! : )

    Those embies look gorgeous – congratulations!
    I’m sorry the connection in the hotel is slow – I wonder what’s going on? I never had that problem there, and I am an internet junkie.

    This is a really late response, but I’ve been thinking about you ever since 2pm on Thursday! I was sitting in a meeting glanced at the clock and thought, “AuntieEm’s” probably driving over right about now.

    I know the double transfer is scary, but it’s just one more layer of “do whatever it takes” that you’ve added, and that’s a good thing!!!

    Hoping the best for you, and that bedrest is treating you well. We’ll have to talk soon, missed meeting you!
