Our little seven turned into little ELEVEN! Yeah, somehow four of the 9 that didn't show any signs of fertilization actually fertilized. This was such a good phone call. Holy crap, what a good phone call!
It got better. My doctor uses a 1-3 rating scale at this point (don't know if all labs do that...) with 1 being 0-10% fragmentation, 2 a little more than that, 3 not so good. Well, we have 9 embryo's scoring a 1!!!! We have two embryo's that are 2's. No 3's.
I can't believe it, this is amazing. I definitely wasn't expecting an increase in embryo number, let alone such a good report of quality.
So, of course, the embryologist had to throw us a curve ball to make us start thinking rather than just celebrating (ok, no we're still celebrating). She said that due to my age (27) and my embryo quality at this point (which could obviously change by day 5), she would recommend we go forward with a single embryo transfer right now.
Dr. Z mentioned this before. He's a firm believer. I'm totally torn. His office shows only about a 5% decrease in success rate with a single embryo transfer as opposed to transferring two. But it obviously decreases the chance of twins, and Dr. Z likes that a lot.
I want to hear your opinions. What have you read? What have you heard? B is concerned about the risks of a twin pregnancy. I'm concerned about a 5% decrease in success rates. I'm not too sure about the risks associated with multiples. Thoughts? Anyone?
And yay again! :)
