    And I know I was wondering, so if anyone else was...

    3-DAY TRANSFER:

    1dpt ..embryo is growing and developing
    2dpt... Embryo is now a blastocyst
    3dpt....Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day
    4dpt.. Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining
    5dpt.. Implantation begins,as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining
    6dpt.. Implantation process continues and morula buries deeper in the lining
    7dpt.. Morula is completely inmplanted in the lining and has placenta cells &
    fetal cells
    8dpt...Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood
    9dpt...More HCG is produced as fetus develops
    10dpt...More HCG is produced as fetus develops
    11dpt...HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on
    HPT

    5-DAY TRANSFER:

    -1dpt ..embryo is growing and developing
    0dpt... Embryo is now a blastocyst
    1dpt....Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day
    2dpt.. Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining
    3dpt.. Implantation begins,as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining
    4dpt.. Implantation process continues and morula buries deeper in the lining
    5dpt.. Morula is completely inmplanted in the lining and has placenta cells &
    fetal cells
    6dpt...Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood
    7dpt...More HCG is produced as fetus develops
    8dpt...More HCG is produced as fetus develops
    9dpt...HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on

    I have a question for you ladies..its a little dumb but here goes anyway
    When the embryos are transferred are they still able to divide (ie 1 baby into identical twins) or are they already past that stage??

    Congrats on the transfer! Get lots of rest! Hope the 2WW passes quickly.

    That's a very good question. My answer would be to say yes, but I'm not 100% sure...

    We transferred 3, but luckily I'm only PG with one.. Triplets would be really high risk, and I'd rather have one healthy one or twins max. I'm a lot older than you and it was my 5th attempt at IVF, so my chances of success were much lower, which is why they transferred 3 (the maximum by law here).

    If you haven't already, you could read the "IVF Success Stories" link under STC, which has interesting info.. There used to be many more, but they were purged and I think are now in the Clomid link (although someone else would need to confirm that.)

    Ah Congrats again. Yeah I was bummed when he said one or two. But I did two. I'd love twins. Anything at this point! Oh wow. 5 cycles. I barely made it through one. Ha ha. I keep feeling twinges buy I'm sure it's all in my head. Did you test early?! And I read the success stories. Wish there were more to read! Thanks again!!

    -Sorry, I don't know how to quote things. Anyway, yes, the embryos are usually past the point of dividing at this point. However if they do divide then it would be a concern as they would be mono-amniotic/mono-chorionic or "MoMo" twins and be very high risk. Twins that are separate sacs and placentas are much safer. My RE said that if one of the embryos divided he would suggest "selective reduction".

    Just hit quote at bottom of post. And I'm going to call my doc about that. He just today said it's okay and that there is a 1 percent chance of twins from the embryo which is why he couldn't transfer 3. Because 2 could be 0-2 or 3 or 4 if any divided

    I was at the dr's office and the nurse was talking about a lady that had happened to. One of the transferred embryos had split to identical. SO yes, it can happen, but I imagine rare.


    Maria, the twinges are real you are not imagining. As the embryo(s) implant you can feel twinges (or even some cramping). I just felt little twinges and pulling. So it is a good thing!

    Temping is futile now. The hormones from IVF drugs change everything. You just need to wait it out and relax as much as possible. and

    Been here since 4. Ovaries enlarged and fluid in pelvis. White blood count is high and the blood test for blood clot is abnormal. Thinking could be clot in lung or so. Since to check is a catscanit was ny choice. I chose to not do it because it'd kill babies this early. Gah!! So after morphine and percocet I'll be going home in an hour or so!

    Too early for implantation following a 3-day transfer. Normally happens on betwween days 7-10 from fertilization, but you are going to feel twinges on & off. I always felt them starting a day or two following transfer, but on my last transfer I felt them significantly on the day of implantation. Good luck dear!!

    OHSS is no fun. Hopefully it's a mild case and they can get you taken care of soon. When will they retest your white blood count? Hope it gets better as you rest at home.

    Please KUP. Most women who experienced OHSS end up getting an early beta if they go into the hospital and most of them have found out early that they were in deed prego. With you being so young and having very good quality 3-day embryo's, I wouldn't be surprised if you get a positive a couple of days early on a HPT if you don't have beta tested prior due to OHSS symptoms. I would wait until at least 8dp3dt if you test at home because your chances are stronger you might pick up a faint line that early, but if you can wait until 9dp3dt that is even better. Good luck!!

    I know its easier said than done but try not to stress..that just makes things worse! I am thinking very good thoughts for you!
    Let us know how the u/s goes.

    AFM: we have decided not to do and IVF in January for a couple of reasons: A) we want to make sure it doesn't use our whole savings and B) my boss scheduled a team building activity a week into the cycle so We have opted for February..

    Thanks!! I am excited, a little upset. We were going to freeze but decided it wasnt worth it with just one plus it was a 7 cell with 20% fragmentation. SO I was super upset when they told me that one made it to day 7 and looked amazing and started hatching. Really upsetting but hopefully I woiuldnt have needed it with the better two being transfered. Still a lot of pain!
