Sadly, the answer is almost certain to be no. Some stats:
- 50% of embryos derived from CGH normal eggs will not survive to day 5.
- 10% of CGH normal eggs are not, in fact, actually normal
- The inconclusive egg has a 50/50 shot at being normal.
- There is a chance that the sperm selected were not genetically normal.
- There is a 1-2% chance for triplets when you transfer 3 day 3 embryos.
- 25% of day 3 embryos make it to live baby.
But who knows? God is in control and He's bigger than numbers ... if you have a doubt, check out what my AMH was in March and then see how much it grew by October!
Last night when Berilac announced his arrival home he shouted: "daddy's home!" It was so cute! We both were in awe last night just thinking about the fact that we have 3 little babies up in Sacramento. Their gender, hair color, predispositions ... all already determined. Our little ones are waiting for us!
We talked a bit about how many we're planning to transfer and from what I understand we will have very little time to make the decision. They will tell us how many we have and at what growth stage they are at ... and we are conducting the transfer within 15 mins of learning this information ... at least, I think that's true??
I just hope that Berilac doesn't cave when the monkey shop RE suggests we only transfer 1 embryo ... yeah, those babies are best off in my womb ... so hand them over!
7:00AM: McDonald's breakfast (some ladies swear by this practice - greasy foods help the embryos stick!)
8:00AM: Arrive at clinic for transfer prep
8:30AM: pre-transfer Acupuncture
9:30AM: post-transfer Acupuncture
10:00AM: hang out, lying flat for a bit.
Then we head to our nearby hotel for 48 hours of bedrest, complemented with fresh pineapple ... if you don't know about this, don't ask and if you do ... I've been waiting for months to chow down on some pineapple - so although I know it's a bunch of baby dust heresay (although there *is* a bit of truth to it) ... I want my pineapple!
In the afternoon sometime, I'll let you know how our very first transfer went. Here's hoping those little babies will get all tucked away for a long 10 month nap.
