Today was my 5dt. The quality of the embryos were only fair. We decided in transferring 3. I never thought I'd put in 3 and I was surprised that our doctor recommended 2-3. (He initially told us that he would never do more than 2 for us. But with our embryo quality, he changed his mind I guess.) This is our last shot and there will probably be no frosties based on embryo quality. Trying to stay positive, but it's hard when our first IVF failed after a perfect embryo was transferred!
