We transferred 2 8 cell blasts and we have 4 left over that were not quite blasts yet. I will find out tomorrow how many will make it to be a frostie. I am really hoping that this cycle works well for us. I need to buy some pineapple.
I totally forgot to ask what grade the blasts were today. So I will ask the nurse tomorrow when I call to check on my other embryos.
My clinic wants me to be on bedrest until Thurs afternoon. I am taking tomorrow off and then on Wed, I thought I would go out w/ my assistant and perform some client re evals without lifting or touching the children but just doing the computer work w/ of course my pillow under my computer. What do yall think??? The studies do not show that it is necessary for bedrest but I want to comply w/ their rules to the best of my abilities.
I can always tell my assistant that Wed will be a no go and then resume light duty on Thurs.
Thanks to everyone for all of their support and hopeful posts that this cycle will work for my family.
Resting on sofa and being pampered by DH who is getting us take out!!!
I did not rest at all after transfer and it worked for me. My clinic does not recommend bed rest. I think light work without lifting anything on Wednesday would be just fine and would have been perfectly fine according to my RE. But you should do what you feel comfortable with and that which will leave you without any regrets. So if it makes you feel better to work and keep busy then do it. But if you have doubts about it then stay home and rest.
Congratulations, and how excited you must be. Please take it easy, and we'll look forward to reading your updates over the holidays.
I just completed my transfer yesterday. This is the 1st time DH and I have made it to D5, so we're feeling more upbeat than with any other previous cycles. However, my numbers are not as high as your (11 eggs retrieved, 9 mature, 6 fertilized, and 3 made it to Day 5 with 1 supposedly "textbook perfect" blast transferred yesterday) so I am praying for at least 1 frostie to give us a little more breathing room. I keep starring at the picture they gave us and wondering if this could be my babygirl (or boy). However, I'm trying to take everything in stride cause there are many days/weeks/months ahead to go...
p.s. How did you decide to transfer 2 (as opposed to 1) blast? DH and I definitely don't want multiples so only transfered one blast, especially after the embryologist said there was one textbook perfect blast and he recommended that we only transfer that one since he was "pretty confident" that we would get pregnant. Of course, this is our first DE cycle at SG, so we don't know if they say that a lot or not.
So it was a no brainer to transfer 2. The nurse said we have a 25% chance of both sticking and and 70% chance of a pregnancy. I am hoping for a positive HPT and I will take whatever implanted 1 or 2.
After 35 months of TTC this child, I just wanted to give myself a good chance. We have 2 frosties in case this cycle does not work out. However, we are broke after this cycle and would have to save for a few months to do the FET so I am hoping that we don't have to.
I am glad that you got a great looking embryo to transfer and I hope you get 1 or 2 frosties.
We are now in this together. I felt some light cramping last night so hoping that it was implantation cramping. When are you gonna start to POAS??? When is your beta?? My beta is on the 26th but I am hoping to push for the 23rd if I get an early BFP.
