Crazier Than Britney

I just heard from the lab with the latest update on my embryos.

We have:
one with 14 cells (this one is looking like the transfer front runner at the moment)
two with 12 cells
one with 8 cells
one with 5 cells (it had 5 cells yesterday also...boo hoo)

Additionally, they froze three more:
one with 14 cells
two with 9 cells

I asked why they didn't freeze one of the 12 cell embryos and leave out the 14 cell embryo. The lab technician said that the 14 cell embryo that they froze wasn't "as nice" as the 12 cell embryo. I guess I'll take her word for it. She said that all the embryos look really good (even that slow little 5 cell guy), with nice even cells and no fragmentation. She implied we should count ourselves lucky; which I most certainly do. Indeed.

Transfer was reconfirmed for Friday at 9:45am. I will not hear from the lab tomorrow, which is probably a good thing. I spend most of the day working myself into an anxious lather waiting for these embryo updates. I swear this process makes me feel crazier than Britney.

Tomorrow, I must finish the laundry and go on a gathering mission to round up all my post-transfer requirements, as I plan to lay as flat as possible, for as long as possible. I'm thinking movies, trashy magazines, books, etc. Maybe I'll even pull out the old knitting needles...

I think I'm starting to get excited.

Ooooh, that is so exciting!! Grow embryos grow! I wonder how many cells they will have by the time they are implanted tomorrow? Are you still going with 1 embryo only? Best of luck with the transfer!

Yes, I think my doctor will only let me transfer one. Apparently, they have never transferred two blasts to someone my age (31 today!). If she let's me have my way, we'll transfer two but I don't think that's gonna happen.

Hmmmm... I am 32 and just getting started with IUI. However, if it doesn't work in 1-3 tries, we're going to go to IVF. I will be 33 in early 2008, so I wonder what my clinic would do.

The stats for my RE say that the "average number of embryos transferred" for the under 35 age group is 2.0. 66.7% of these cycles result in pregnancies, and 62.7% result in live birth. 57.4% of the pregnancies result in multiple births. I would definitely rather have 1 baby (at a time) than 2, but I'd much rather have 2 than NONE, ya know?? In your case, your embryos sound so healthy that they probably really think that just 1 will work. (Fingers crossed for you)!
