"Ham"bryos are in the oven

Well the transfer went really well. We started off our day very early at the acupuncturist. I laid there envisioning my uterus getting ready for the 'planting' of our embryos and praying that we had healthy ones to transfer. We had been told to arrive at twenty after eight with a full bladder. But when we got there the clinic wasn't even open yet! Then I started to worry that the reason was because all of our embryos had died over night and they had cancelled but forgot to tell us. (irrational I know) But shortly after we saw the front desk girl pull widely into the parking lot, clearly late. My bladder has yet to forgive her.

We had the on-call RE who was wonderful and who was the same RE who did our retrieval. I think he performs the best retrievals at the practice because I felt so good afterwards unlike last time. Anyway, the RE came in with the report on our embryos to discuss what we would be transferring. We were shocked to hear the best report we have ever had!

10 cell - grade 1, 0% fragmentation
8 cell - grade 1, 0% fragmentation
8 cell - grade 1, 0% fragmentation

We've had maybe one 8 cell grade 1 but the rest have been of lower quality. So even though we've had more embryos the quality just was not as good. We ended up deciding to transfer all three and our RE highly recommended it since we've had previous failed cycles. Afterwards we headed back to the acupuncturist to 'cover' up our embryos. So now I'm back home on bed rest. We're praying that at least one makes it's home for the next few months.

*EXCELLENT* news!! I'm so happy to read such a great report! Keep thinking being positive like you are- try your best to not let those awful IF doubts and fears creep in. And try not to symptom-analyze. You'll feel better during the 2ww. But we all know how pretty much impossible that is, so if you do ever get down, come back and read this post to remind you of how well God is taking care of this cycle! Take it super easy the next few weeks. I really, REALLY hope this is it! I'm so excited for you, what a happy report today!

I am so glad to hear that your final report on your embryos was such a good one. I am sure that hearing that the quality was so much better was a huge relief to you both.
I hope that you have some really good news in a couple of weeks!

Go, hambryos, go! Three was our magic number (from four fertilized, as well), so I hope it brings you the same magic!!

Praying that at least ONE of the little guys takes... now rest up, make sure the DH pampers you like CRAZY these next two weeks, and eat lots of fresh pineapple -- i hear it helps with implantation. :)

So happy for your good results!
