The five Amigos!

The clinic just called and we have 5 frozen blastocysts! Wohooo!!! 3 of them were frozen yesterday on day 5 and 2 more today on day 6! All of them are "beautiful expanded blasts" as my lovely embryologist said after having wished me happy birthday... Only 2 had arrested on day 3 but the other 4 didn't look high grade enough for freezing (my clinic has very strict criteria for what can be frozen, they like to have their FET stats almost as good as the fresh).

So that's it for now, we'll be looking at single transfers in the summer of next year (we have the California holiday planned for June next year and then I have a conference near Boston early July), I really hope there will be a brother or sister for Oliver among my little penguins.

  6. Fran, congratulations!!! This is wonderful news. Five is a lovely, healthy number and they sound like beautiful blasts. Everything crossed for Oliver's younger sib.

  8. Yay for frozen blasts. And...I may have missed something...but why did you choose to do the retrieval now but not implant until next year? Aren't your chances better with a fresh cycle? Just curious.

  9. Oh, Fran, I am so sorry that I have missed your recent posts. Things have been a bit upside down here for me lately. But I hope you know that my heart is full of joy for you and the fantastic news of your 5 little penguins! It couldn't be better, really. After everything it took you to have Oliver, you really deserved this wonderful outcome. Many hugs to you, my friend (and I'm looking forward to our visit next summer!)
