Day 5 report

Well, this morning started off by my sitting by the phone and waiting... and waiting... and WAITING. I gave up around 2pm and called them. A guy named Terry talked to me and said that ONE embryo was biopsied and vitrified (frozen) today.

The 'others' weren't to the blastocyst stage yet, and they would be checked again tomorrow. I'm suppposed to get a call tomorrow also. Now, he didn't say that any (of the 11) had died... just that they weren't blasts yet. I should have asked for more details, but heck, I didn't.

I'm not sure what to think at this point. I guess it's good that they aren't dead (yet), but iffy that only 1 could be frozen today. And then there's the whole CGH testing, it's completely possible that that 1 embryo could be genetically abnormal.

More tomorrow... hopefully.

Oh my, the waiting!

I don't think that's necessarily bad that they weren't all completely ready yet on day 5. My three were "early blasts" on day 5 and the two we didn't transfer had to wait until day 6 to be frozen. And morulas on day 5 is common and doesn't mean a problem.

Oh, I hope today brings more good news. One blast yesterday is definitely good news!

Wow. Things look really good. You seem to have done so great this cycle. I hope you had good news today.
