I'm weirdly calm about today's transfer. Actually, aside from some low-grade anxiety yesterday about how the embryos were doing, I have kind of enjoyed this process the last few days. Because there is nothing I can do at this point, and so stressing out is only going to make things worse. Mostly I am just focusing on creating a warm, comfy nest for the embryo to snug into.

So here's the deets:
As of this morning there were 2 blastocysts grade 4bb and 3 others that were also that same grade, but didn't quite look as good. So we went with our gut and transfered the best looking one. We definitely have one on ice, and the three others were going to be looked at again late today to make a decision on whether they are good enough to also freeze.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little bit worried this morning when they told us that the embryos weren't super high quality, but like I said, there's nothing I can do at this point, and so today I've been lying around all day thinking about how I am going to keep busy during the next 9 days.


  1. Congrats on your ET!! The fact that they were blasts at all is a great sign and grade 4bb is still very good. And it's great to be calm, at this point you've done all your work and it's up to your blast to do it's thing, though being relaxed will definitely provide it a good environment. Many P&PTs that this cycle brings you a sticky BFP!

  2. Congrats on the tranfer! I hope the next 9 days fly by for you, and I'll be praying that Christmas brings you a very special present :).

  3. Yay! So glad that things went well. Rest, take it easy, and enjoy being PUPO!


  4. Wonderful news on your transfer. Stay off your feet and enjoy being lazy for a few days. I wish you the best of luck! xxoo
