I tossed and turned a few times over the night with nerves. I woke around 5:30 and showered and got ready. I donned my lucky shirt. This is the same shirt I wore for all of my other embryo transfers. Today's made #4!!!
So we left for Cleveland around 7:30 and arrived at 9:00am. As soon as we got there I popped a 5mg Valium (another tip I did with my successful cycle). They checked us in and got us into a room by 9:10am upon which I started drinking my 20oz orange gatorade. The doctor came in to go over our embryos. Of the original 6.... we were transferring 2 (a 7 cell and a 9 cell), they already froze 2 (a 9 cell and a 12 cell), and 2 didn't make it. Of the extra 3, 1 is a 3 cell, 1 is a 4 cell, and the other didn't make it. They said they'll most likely freeze those 2 tomorrow as well. So fingers crossed we will have 4 frosties from this cycle. I am a little unfamiliar with them being frozen on day 3. I thought they only froze on day 5. I will have to google the crap out of this later. I should have asked him for the report he was reading my embryo stats off of. It was super detailed and the embryos were graded on there.
Here are Mike and I just before the transfer:
So here are the embryos we transferred today (top is a 9 cell, bottom is an 7 cell):
Since they didn't give us grades of the embryos, here is a grading chart I found online:
