ET today

Morning everyone...

I have ET at 11am today... I am abit of a nervous wreck. They decided to push the embies that has survived to day 5..... but I had read they dont check on them on day 4.

I'm now anxiously staring at the phone thinking they will ring and say there is nothing to transfer.......

I hadn't anticipated the anxiety I would feel. I am so attached to those embies already! And i really am a pessimist is another thing I have learned through this process!

Thinking of everyone else anxiously waiting today either for news or tests. Hope you all get the news you are hoping for xxxxxx

Hi Rainbow86. From what i can gather if there are two good embryos day 3 they grow them another 2 days so they can pick the very best one to transfer, so sounds positive. Its natural to feel nervous. I'm not too far behind you in this process. I was thinking this morning will i give our little egg (assuming we get that far) a name! Thinking of you today and wishing you and your embies well :) xx

They normally have to be pretty confident going from day 3 to 5 to take them to day 5, so try not to worry too much. I found the phone calls the most stressful!!

Good luck..x

Try not to worry too much had my transfer yesterday and it was fine. I think I was just most relieved to have it over.

And we spoke about cats the whole time with the nurse!! 🐱

Good luck with it will keep my fingers crossed xx

Back in "my days" they told me it was rare that development that went swimmingly until day 3 would stall thereafter. They wait if they're confident you have enough quality embryos, so they can select the very strongest to put back. Good luck!

I was in your exact position this time last week as had my ET at 11am last Sat! I kept staring at my phone incase it rang and at one point it did (but wasn't the clinic phew!) we only had 2 x embryos that fertilised and desperately wanted to have them both transferred but when we got to the clinic they told us only one had made it to 5 day blastocyst and the other one was only early blastyo so they wanted to give it another 24 hours and would then freeze it if it was good enough. We had the one good one transferred but the following day they called to say the other one hadn't made it....how many did they say had fertilised initially? Good luck today keeping everything crossed for you xx

I felt the same the only way to look at it is if they don't survive till day 5 there's a good chance they weren't strong enough hun.good luck xx

Good luck Rainbow86. I have my transfer at 11am too. I only found out at 8.45 that it would be 11! So quite short notice. This is our second go. Watching a comedy film / laughing can help afterwards apparently. Xx

Aww hope it went well cycle buddy! Can't believe were in the 2ww! X

I know, it seems to have come round quickly. This cycle seems to have flown by. My test date is 4th Sept. My clinic says to only test on day 16 which seems like ages away! Xx

Ah really! We have been told to test on the 1st. It's funny how it differs isn't it. Do you think you will be able to hold out till OTD? X

Reply

I don't know. I think I will hold out as scared of seeing a negative test. I will test on day 14 though rather than waiting until day 16. Do you think you will test early?xx

Reply

I'm the same. I'm abit scared of the result so will probably hold out. But I guess it's early days and I may change my mind! Good luck and message anytime if you are going mad! XX
