5 day transfer!

Transfer was this morning. We transferred a blastocyst (Tiny) and an early blastocyst (Teeny). I was very happy to see the photo of them:


The embryologist was kind of a downer. I sort of wanted to punch her. She didn't compliment Teeny and Tiny nearly enough (I mean look at those faces!). Then she was not encouraging at all about our remaining embryos: 8 left, 2 have arrested, the other 6 are at morula stage, she basically can't give us any guarantees we'll have anything to freeze. Which, whatever, but be nicer.

I'm too tired to write more about the transfer. My brain isn't really working. I still have pain throughout my abdomen that feels like this:

need to take a massive poop +
menstrual cramps +
I did 3,000 sit ups yesterday. (clearly did not)

and all I want to do is sleep for the next two days, which I will probably do, with a short lucid period to watch the Emmy's (Go Modern Family!)

10 days until beta.

Those are some pretty adorable faces! Rest up - those 10 days will be over before you know it. :)

Oh, they are beautiful! I think that they both have your eyes :)

And I also felt like I had to take a massive poop. Probably TMI, but the only thing that helped me were the Dulcolax suppositories. Maybe worth a try if your RE is okay with it?

Your embryos are gorgeous!!! So excited for you! Hope you feel better soon, and I'm so glad you are planning on getting as much rest as possible!!!

Welcome home, Tiny and Teeny!

Tons of people get pregnant off 6-day blasts, so I don't know why your embryologist was so negative. I mean, of course there are no guarantees--this is IVF, there *never* are guarantees--but with only 2 of 10 embryos arresting by day 5 and the others obviously still growing, I wouldn't count them out just yet!
