FET #4 - Transfer

Today at lunchtime, we transferred one of our frosties.
I wish I was more excited about today - I certainly was this morning! Excited and nervous and full of anticipation.
You see, our embryos started thawing on day 1, back on Friday of last week. Despite asking for updates, we heard nothing back about their progress - except that today's transfer was still on. We were really hopeful to have one good blastocyst to transfer today, since they always said that no news is good news.
I was upset the minute we finally walked into the transfer room. The embryo on screen was NOT a blastocyst, and today is day 5. My heart immediately sank. If that was the best one out of the three, we didn't have a lot to work with. Sure enough, the scientist told us that two hadn't made it, and that we were transferring an early blastocyst today.
I'm no embryologist, but I don't believe that's an early blastocyst. To me, it's a morula, or even an 8-cell embryo, meaning it's 1-2 days behind in growth. They transferred it anyway, but I think it was a pity transfer... I don't see how an embryo this far behind could catch up.
But... for now, it's done. We're pregnant, until proven otherwise! ;) And hey, at least we got to transfer something, right? Still, I was really hoping for a St. Patrick's day lucky miracle. I hope this little leprechaun sticks around; we'd really love to meet it.

I wish it were all easier. Here's to hoping! Maybe some positive thoughts and energy will do some good. Thinking of you!

Hoping for the best for you guys. Fingers crossed!

Sorry your embryo wasn't what you were hoping for, but if it's still growing and expanding it's still viable. I hope it decides to get cozy. Why did they freeze everything on day 1?

Personally, I just think it needed a uterus for catching up. : ) Wishing you the best and speedy, busy 2ww.

I hope this is it, and that that early blastocyst gets cozy and keeps developing!

What a lovely photo of you both. Wishing you all the best to you and your embie, hopefully he or she will continue to grow as he or she snuggles in. Lots of love xx

Keeping hope. Others have gotten pregnant on just a day three transfer so there is always a possibility!
