embryo's as of yesterday, day 2! I am in total disbelief! They haven't checked on them today yet, but as of yesterday we have 13 EMBRYO'S!!!! Not just 13, but 13 embryo's that are looking pretty good! According to the embryologist, a embryo that has four cells on day two is really good, we have some that are SIX CELLS! Dr. R is pushing me to a day 5 transfer so they can transfer blasts (I know that is good even though I'm still learning all the embryo lingo)!!! Here's what I found...
Day 0 Egg retrieval
Sperm collection and preparation
Day 1 Check eggs for fertilization (the presence of two pronuclei or PN's)
Day 2 Embryos at the 4-cell or more stage of development
Day 3 Embryos at the 8-cell or more stage of development
Day 4 Embryos at the compacted morula (16-32 cell) stage
Day 5 Embryos at the blastocyst stage of development
The embryologist is really blown away by how good they are doing. I asked, "aren't embryo's usually not that good with rescue ICSI?" She replied, "yes, we really can't explain how this is happening!" I said "my prayers are working!" and she responded, "well keep doing what your doing!"
I am praying... for a miracle this Christmas!
