Day 3 Embryo Report....

The ARTS department called and we have 4 "good" embryos and 5 "excellent" embryos.
Yes, 4+5 does equal 9. We have 9 embryos, not 8 as we previously thought. It turns out that one of our little ones cleaved late....whatever that means.

Now we just wait until Saturday for the big transfer!

We had that happen too.... They told us 7 of 13 fertilized, but on transfer day told us we had a late fertilizer. Nice to get some good news like that!!!

Stay strong and rest up!

Yeah, I definitely didn't want OHSS!!! And I doubt it'd have made that big of a difference in the mature egg department. They just get SO overworked there I'm wondering if there was a slight oversight.

Yes, I've done all my PIO's. I did ask my husband to do the 1st one, but he made SO many faces and seemed so unhappy, plus I really think not KNOWING when the needle will go in is harder for me. :) So I released him.

Not sure I would have done this except for IUI #3 he wasn't in town for the trigger so I HAD to do it myself. After you've done one IM yourself, the scare factor is gone. :)

You do what YOU need to w/ POAS. Everyone is different! Plus, I've seen more than a few ladies get - on a HPT on beta day only to get a good number back. So there are reasons both ways!

GOOD LUCK TOMORROW!!!

Not too much info to share about the PIO. I may do a whole post about it. I was scared thinking it'd be a BIG DEAL and it has only been ONE time (hit siatic nerve 2nd time -ow, too laxadasical!)

So, basically I inject it the top right quadrant of my butt. I'll turn around (standing) and face a mirror. I may "draw" a + on my butt with my fingernail (turns the skin reddish for long enough), dividing it into quadrants. Then I'll pick a place in there that doesn't have a bruise or nodule from a prev PIO shot. I keep the skin pinched tight, slowly insert the needle (only hurts a second going in) and then withdraw to make sure no blood. Then I plunge in slowly, maybe takes 10-15 sec for 1 cc. Now that I'm home, I use a microwave hot-bag & keep on for 5-10 minutes. It HAS helped w/ soreness.

You totally can do it, but you gotta find what you're most comfy with. I assume tonight was your 1st - how did it go? Girl, can't wait for a good report tomorrow!!!!!!!!!1
