The embryologist called and he and Dr. Schoolcraft have decided that we will do a transfer today!
On day 3 they like to see embryos that are 8 celled and are graded highly. Here is their grading policy:
Grade 4 means even cell division with no fragmentation
Grade 3 means even cell division with small fragmentation
Grade 2 means uneven cell division with moderate fragmentation
Grade 1 means uneven cell division with excessive fragmentation
We will be transferring 3 embryos today:
8 cell, grade 4
8 cell, grade 3
6 cell, grade 3+
We had hoped for a day 5 transfer, but we are praying that at least one (if not all three) babies will be healthy and stick around.
Please pray for us today, for an uneventful transfer and for the blessing of children.
