goodbye day 3, hello day 5 (updated)

just as we were about to leave the house this morning we got the call. we have been moved to a day 5 transfer. oh la la. this cycle is all over the place. on one hand i’m disappointed, i was so ready for today, on the other hand i’m excited because that means our little friends at the lab are growing swimmingly. geez louise.

the nurse explained that as of today we have:

3 – 8 cell
1 – 6 cell
2 – 5 cell
1 – 4 cell

so i guess given those growth rates they couldn’t quite decide which one(s) would be the best to transfer, hence waiting a few days to see what happens.

just another lesson of patience i guess. now where did i put my pajamas…

Update: While we’re talking transfer, i’m torn between transferring 1 or 2. I suppose our decision will depend on how they look on wednesday morning and the embryologist’s recommendation, but what about you? how did you decide how many to put back?

    thanks for commenting on my blog. i was moved from a 3 to a 5 too and i understand this does make it easier for them to pick the strongest. we transferred two on day five and one of them is now my 15 month old sweet little girl. wishing the best for you!!
