The Odds

We were really pleased to arrive at ORM this morning and find out that we not only had embryos to choose from, but that we had SIX! Ok, so the last one was a grade 4 and lagging behind a little, BUT STILL...
Today's embryo tally:
3 8 celled grade 2 embryos
1 6 celled grade 2
1 6 celled grade 3
1 4 celled grade 4

Of course you're wondering how many we transferred. Details, details!
We put back the 3 8 celled grade 2 embryos. Per Dr. Williams suggestion. He said he was on the fence between 2 and 3, but since we had had a failed cycle before, he'd lean towards 3. So there you go.
Then he added that there was a 1 in 6 chance of triplets. Hmmm... Complication....

We'll just hope for one nice sticky bean and see what happens. Oh! When the RE was putting the embryos in, one of the little buggers didn't want to come out of the catheter, so then he had to do the whole process again. Mildly annoying, but when I'm in stirrups, I'm not exactly going anywhere, so who am I to complain?

Coming up: progesterone bloodwork on 7/25 and then the much anticipated BETAs on 8/1 and 8/3.

Yay, little embryos!!! Those sound GREAT! What a change from last time!

1 in 6 chance of triplets, though? Holy crap, that's a lot higher than I thought it would be. But let's just hope for at least one, I guess.

Oh, I'm SOOOOOO hopeful for you!
