Day 5 Embryo Report

It's funny, this whole waiting for an update thing.

After yesterday's report, I felt so much more relaxed! That lasted all evening, and right up until this morning. Then, starting at 7:30 a.m., all I could think about were my embryos. And how noon could not get here fast enough. At 11:45 a.m., I started getting a bit panicky.

I called at noon, on the dot. No answer. Argh!

I called back at 12:04 p.m. An embryologist picked up. Phew.

So, without further adieu, here is my...

Day 5 Embryo Report:
3 embryos are cavitating
2 embryos are morulas
1 embryo is compacting

And 4 embryos (5-cell, 4-cell, and two 2-cells) were thrown out due to no growth.

Basically, I have 6 embryos that are just knocking on the blastocyst door. The compacting one is practically there already.

I'm hoping that as today progresses, some of those 6 will go ahead and "go blast" for me. I'm hopeful that I may have a couple snowbabies when I call for tomorrow's update.

The embryologist mentioned that all 6 are within normal range for Day 5.

I am just elated! I think this is great news, and I can now allow myself to relax. For 16 hours.

Come 6:00 a.m. tomorrow, the panic will once again set in, and I will be a wreck until I hear from the embryologist.
