YAAAAA!! Just got the call from the embryologist and she said that 10 of the 12 fertilized! I told her we had 14 yesterday so shouldn't it be that 10 of the 14 fertilized? She said they didn't even try with the other 2 bc they weren't mature enough attempt. All I prayed for was double digits with the fert report and I got it!! I really didn't expect these results bc nurses were estimating I'd be lucky to get 6-7 eggs at retrieval! Then to get 14 retrieved and 10 fertilized is way beyond my expectations!!

They will know the strength and grades tomorrow after watching them in the incubator. Depending on their grades, we'll either transfer them on Saturday(Day 3) or on Monday (Day 5). We did "Day 3 Transfer" last time so I'm expecting the same this time around.

Nurse was very excited and happy for us saying this is a great # to work with going into the transfer! The best place for the embies in in the uterus so if I have 5 or more meeting certain criteria in the incubator, then they will transfer them on Day 5 confident that they'll survive until then. There are pros and cons to day 3 and day 5 transfers (no such thing as a day 4 transfer), but a decision not left up to us, but up to the embryologist! Thank goodness for that!

I'll post more when I hear when the transfer will be, but I'm just excited that 10 fertilized! I really can't believe it! I feel so hopeful that this'll work this time!! Thanks for caring and being excited with us!!

Just found your blog on cyclesista's. Congratulations on your 10 embryos. Isn't it a wonderful feeling? I had my ER on Tuesday so we're on the same schedule. Take care and good luck for either Saturday or Monday. I'll be checking in.
