What you’re seeing in this picture are our 3 embryos. We lost one from Day 2 to Day 3 and this is the picture of the embryos from the morning of the transfer.
We transferred all 3: 1 8 cell, grade B and 2 6 cells, grade C. Apparently all that grade stuff doesn’t mean that you can’t or won’t get pregnant, just that the grade As are more likely to continue to develop.
Of course, I’m already completely enamored of all 3 and want them all to keep growing and to stay. I go for my Beta on Aug 31 and until then, I’m going to stay focused on all 3 of them growing and growing and growing.
I’m still taking the Progesterone in Oil (1 cc every night), Doxycycline, and Medrol. Only 3 more days of the Medrol and Doxy, then it will just be the PIO, I think.
I did acupuncture before and after the transfer. The transfer went fine, except that I was supposed to go at 10 AM and went at 11: 15 or so instead. I had drank 30 ounces of water and a tea that morning, so I was in excruciating pain from having to pee. I had to use a bedpan at one point (gross). That is one part of the IVF process they should think a little more carefully about, I think…
