Numbers Game

Deep breath.

Just got the call.

Day Five Transfer - Friday at 3 PM.

Of the 12 embryos:

1 arrested
2 poor quality
4 others 4- 9 cell of moderate quality
5 8 cell embryos of excellent quality

I was actually a little disappointed about only having five excellents, but the coordinator said that I can count 9/12 as being "potentially" transferrable. She said that some of the 4 can be of excellent quality by Friday.

Five is enough, but I am worried about more of them arresting.

Fingers crossed and lots of prayers that we still have five by Friday.

Thank you so much for sharing your story with me.

I'll be praying for you and your embryos, that more turn to "excellent" and that no others arrest. I really hope your transfer goes well on Friday!

5, 8 cell embryos of excellent quality is a really good result. Not to mention you still have another 4 that may improve.
One step at a time. Be proud of what you have achieved so far. Worrying about what might happen down the road will not change the outcome.
One step at a time.
