Pregnant Until Proven Otherwise

The transfer went great yesterday. We put two blasts back. My clinic grades blasts on a scale from A-D; A is the worst quality and D is the best. My RE said 'D' and 'C' graded embryos have the same pregnancy rates. We had one Grade C and one Grade A. He also said it is possible for the grade A to turn into a better quality blast in a few hours, so not to count it out of the equation. I go back for the pregnancy test on July 1st, but I will most likely start testing a few days before then. Here are my little embies which I am refering to as Thing 1 and Thing 2:
Thing 1: Grade C Blast
Blast 1

Thing 2: Grade A Blast
Blast 2

Our other two embryos stopped growing at 4 and 6 cells so we don't have anything to freeze, but we are ok with that since we have the two best at home with me.

In other news: I can't wait until Monday when I get to finally clue Garry in on our mini-vaca to Atlantic City. We so need this time alone together away from worrying about work and cycling and family. I can't wait, and he will be so excited when he finds out where we are going.


  1. Wishing you nothing but positive vibes Chrissy! Here's hoping that this is IT for you :) Crossing all than I can for you!

  2. Yay for being PUPO!!! Praying for your little embies to stick and grow!

  3. Yay for PUPO!

    I found your blog through a forum. I hope things work out well this cycle. I'm on Day 9 of stimming in my first IVF cycle.
