Embryo update! — The Bump
Infertility

Embryo update!

I just called the lab and was told my little one is doing fine!!!  Squeeeeeeee!!!

They told me it was already past morula, starting to enter blast stage and looking great!

Today is day 4 after ER and it's the first time I'll be doing a 5dt. In the past I mostly had good looking embies on day 3 but I only got once a bfp and that ended in m/c. I was afraid that they didn't develop past day 3 due to our MFI. But this time my little embie made it to at least day 4. I'm so happy right now!!!

Me 32 / DH 36
TTC since 08/2010
Me: Lap in 2007 due to pelvic pain: Dx mild endo
Lap in 2011: ovarian cyst and endo removal
2 Clomid cycles: good response but both BFN
borderline high anti-cardiolipin IgM Abs - now on baby aspirin
DH: S/A low all three - unexplained

IVF/ICSI #1: 06/2012 11R/11M/9F 2dt of one 4-cell embie - BFP,
beta hell, U/S hell, m/c and D&C in 08/2012
FET #1: 10/2012 3dt of one 10-cell embie - BFN
FET #2: 11/2012 2dt of one 2-cell embie - BFN
FET #3: 01/2013 3dt of one 6-cell embie - BFN
IVF/ICSI #2: 02/2013 14R/13M/7F 5dt of one blast 2/16 - BFP, beta hell, ectopic
