Day 6 Embryo Report

I called the clinic at 11:00 a.m. on the dot this morning. The embryologist who answered informed me that she did not have my updated chart yet.

"Hopefully this means they are busy with cryopreservation."

Yes, hopefully!

She told me to call back at 2. Longest three hours ever!

I called back at 1:57 p.m. No answer.


I tried several more times over the next 20 minutes, and finally the embryologist answered.

Day 6 Embryo Report:
  • 2 embryos made it to expanded blastocyst this morning, and were frozen. The embryologist said that these two pretty much skipped over blastocyst phase and headed straight into expanded blastocyst. One is graded B and the other B/C.
  • Of the 4 remaining, 3 are cavitating and one is compacting. The compacting embryo and one of the cavitating embryos did not show any growth from yesterday. However, two of the cavitating embryos did in fact show some growth. They will culture these until tomorrow morning, and hope to get another blast or two.
Overall I feel really pleased with this report! I HAVE TWO SNOWBABIES!!

Would I have liked to have more blastocysts by today? Well, sure. But I'm so thankful to have two, and there is always that chance I could get another one by tomorrow.

Thank you so much for your support! It is so appreciated.


  1. Yay for two snowbabies!! Now let's get those babies transferred next month! Hope that you get a couple more blasts tomorrow!! Congrats on a great report!:)

  2. Congratulations! I'm so excited for you! Will they be able to do the transfer next month, or do they have to monitor your uterine wall thickness? Have they talked to you about the possibilityy of using Viagra suppositories? They are awful but they work! I'm convicned all my rounds of clomid are what ruined my lining thickness and the V-supps trumped that!

  3. So happy you have two snowbabies and maybe more!!
