SIx still growing, four at four cells, one three-celled, one two-celled but all rated 'good'. Dr Shoes cheerfully transferred the three best four celled-embryos, after we'd had the requisite "triplets are very very bad and you and they are very likely to die" conversation with an embryologist, and signed a form acknowledging we've had that conversation.
Now I know I sound flippant, and I don't really mean to. I think the US practice of regularly transferring two or even three embryos even in young women, particularly those with previous successful pregnancies, is mad. I do understand why it happens given the cost of cycles and the clinics' need to keep their stats up, but it does lead to a higher proportion of bad things than is necessary or ever desirable. So I support the HFEA's push to get clinics to consider single embryo transfer, bearing in mind that success rates for single embryo transfers combined with a subsequent FET are the same as those for double embryo transfers, but with a lower incidence of twins and triplets. But people, I am 41, I have got pregnant twice from IVF/FET and both times miscarried early with a singleton. I'm vanishingly unlikely to get pregnant with twins, let alone with triplets. And my chances of getting pregnant with a singleton is pretty damn low. So let's not panic just yet.
You can bring this conversation up to torment me with if anything untoward on the conception front does happen, ok?
I feel about as optimistic as I can be given how good these embryos look compared to the last cycle, but then what a 2-day embryo looks like isn't a great indicator of whether or not you'll have a successful pregnancy, hence the guardedness of my optimism. But still, not bad for an old lady.
