This is my first post. Feeling really nervous for tomorrow's day 5 transfer. I have read a lot about gradings and such like but all I know is that the embryologist said they were doing well on day three and they wanted to develop them to day 5. Really hoping to get a couple to freeze but no idea of their quality, will they tell me tomorrow??

Hi KC26, my 5 day transfer is tomorrow too! May the embryos be in our favours. My clinic said exactly the same. I’m told that more information will follow tomorrow. I’m in at 8:30am...what time are you in? I will be thinking of you x
Hello ladies best of luck to you both. A "comfortably" full bladder is recommended but difficult to achieve. It is the most uncomfortable part of the procedure. Try to appreciate how fascinating it all is. You should get to see your wee embryo. I am a scientist and therefore enjoyed how futuristic it was. Amazing. Then back to the couch with your feet up.xx
I was told to drink two pints of water an hour before the transfer. I’ve heard of people who have gone out for lunch or a little shopping trip after but from what my two friends who’ve had successful IVfs have suggested it’s best to go home and relax at last for day one. I’m feeling really nervous now! Xx
I believe as long as you don’t empty your bladder within the hour before you should be ok. My OH takes all advice very literal, & drank loads of water before transfer, & was busting for a pee by the time they called us in. 😂 It worked out ok, but if there was any delay she probably would have had to pee & would have been completely empty!
Just drink a pint of water gradually in the hour leading up (DP took a bottle of water with her to drink in the car & when we were waiting).
Good luck! The fact that they have waited till day 5 is a good sign, as they clearly thought the embryos were developing well enough to make it to this stage. 🤞🏼🍀
Hope it has gone well today x
Hi hun, one made it out of six of mine. So they’ve transferred it. I test on the 13th? When is your OTD? Baby dust and a massive prayer for the little embryos to stick! We got to see the cathetar go in and saw the embryo flash across and into the womb!
All the best to you too x
