The embryologist just called to let me know how our 15 embryos did…
Of the 15, six are predicted normal – four are blastocysts and two are morulas. That’s good right?
Furthermore, the embryologist said he spoke with the doctor this morning and because of my age (31) I can transfer two or even three. Three? WTF? In all that I’ve been told, they at most will do two for someone under 35. Why suddenly three? He was yapping about how that would increase the odds for multiples, etc. You think?
He also said that they will watch their development and, hopefully, we will have several strong ones to freeze.
On the flip side, seven were definitely affected and two were inconclusive, one of which had only my chromosomes. And can I tell you how pleased this made me? It just really validated the reason we chose to do PGD and IVF in the first place. Of the 13 ones they could really test, 54 percent had OI, 46 percent didn’t. We don’t want to pass along this disease and it seems we have a significant chance to do so conceiving naturally.
So now I’m excited, anxious and nervous. The big T-day. In a little more than 2 1/2 hours. Eeeeeek.
