A glimmer of hope

While I was posting about the blog award the clinic called.
The embryologist (Ivy) said it was good news that we have two compacted morulas which is the stage they should be today. The other 3 have not arrested but are quite slow, as if they were a day behind at 10, 7 and 7 cells. I am booked in for transfer at 12.30 which is early than I ever been in for transfer. Of course I have a scan tomorrow morning at 9.10 and Ivy said if they are delaying me to make sure I mention I have this early transfer. She also said that she hopes everything will progress as she expects but that she will give me a call by 10.30 if she feels the blasts do not develop or don't look so good. I'd say I'll ask tomorrow when I'm in.

So I'm breathing a little. After this post I'll be spending sometime meditating and getting ready for tomorrow, I have not been that good in fairness, meaning that I just couldn't even think about the possible transfer.

I also asked Ivy about the SA as I had forgotten when she called on Thursday. She said the sample had 11 million/mL for a total of 70 millions (which is a bit better than before) and a progressive motility of 37% which is much better than before (it was 15%) and normal morphology so Mike was very happy and proud that the vitamins and mineral he has been taking for months now do show some results!

I mentioned to Ivy about the two ectopics and again the possibility of using a minimum amount of medium for the transfer, she was so sympathetic and sorry for me, she said she'll leave a note just in case.

The plan tomorrow is to go in for the scan, go to work and the pretend to be a bit sick and go home for a few days...
(by the way, today the New Toy gave up completely...new BSOD and I was not able to restart the machine ever since...writing from the old one which I decided to reformat completely on friday night...ahhhhgggg thank God for external hard drives where I saved all my latest folders as of this saturday!)

  2. Two compacted morulas, woo-hoo!!! Fabulous news. And that's great about the SA. So glad, also, that they'll be mindful of using the minimum amount of medium. I am sending you all my love and positive thinking, and will especially be doing so tomorrow.

  12. So glad to hear two are performing like stars. Best of luck tomorrow!
    The other woman who had retrieval and transfer the same days as me at my clinic only had 2 morulas to transfer on day 5. She just delivered twin daughters at 35w6d. And only one of my two great looking blasts implanted. So you're ahead of where she was at that stage! Hope to hear wonderful news from you in another couple weeks...

    Love,
    Maddy

  14. Two morulas is great! Hopefully the other three decide to catch up. Its like how you use one Border Collie dog to train another. The other three will watch the first two to figure out what they need to do. ;)

    You will be in my thoughts and prayers tomorrow. I can't wait to read the good news.

    *big hugs*

  16. Hi hon,
    I am rooting and cheering so hard for you! Here's hoping that those two embies are the ticket for you guys and that we get to be cycle AND pregnancy buddies! xo

  17. That is excellent news Frannie! I'm so pleased that your embies are going strong (and lets not discount the slower ones either, my little Limpy was a good one at day 5 last time round).

    Thinking of and praying for you.
