A little blue - October 17th, 2011
I'm a little blue today (as are my embies that remain). All 8 were going strong as of Saturday, so we had high expectations for how many would be able to be frozen. Of the 7 that we did not transfer, only 3 made it to freezing. We lost the grade 3, which we expected, but then also 2 of the grade 2s and one of the grade 1s. It is the loss of the grade 1 that hits me especially hard, because if one of the perfect embryos wasn't strong enough to make it to be frozen, how likely is it that the single one that is inside me will make it to become a baby? I am seriously doubting my decision to put back only 1 embryo, and maybe I'd even go so far as to say I am regretting it. I'm trying to stay hopeful, but I am a worrier by nature, and am very worried right now. I had my blood drawn to check my progesterone level today, so I should know what that comes back at tomorrow morning. Hopefully it is nice and high.
