Our transfer was this morning, and it went fairly well. My first question for the embryologist was "how're the little ones doing" and she told me that they had both divided. One was 6-cell, one was 8-cell. Both had some fragmentation (over 10%), so they were graded as 16/20. because of the fragmentation, we were told that they would not survive freezing well, so we decided to transfer both back.

So, as of about 10 am this morning, I'm PUPO. For those of you not up on the lingo, that's Pregnant Until Proven Otherwise. My beta (blood test) is May 31 - 17dp3dt. I know, you're like "wtf". 17dp3dt is pretty easy to explain. it's 17 Days Past 3 Day Transfer. from what I've read, most clinics don't wait that long, but i guess ours does. oh well.

here's a neat chart from, showing due dates (Jan 31 - wooo!), trimester dates, etc. sorry if it's a bit hard to read. It's based on our retrieval date, which for all intents & purposes was ovulation, and counted as 2weeks (even though it'd been 3 wks since CD1).


  1. So happy for you, Chelle! Enjoy being PUPO and take care of yourself, and those little embies. Nestle in, little guys, it's going to be a fun ride!

  2. Oh man... I'm crossing everything I can right now.

    And that would so totally rock if they were born right between our Bdays! :)

    Sending good vibes your way, lots and lots of good vibes and baby dust. :)

  3. I just mentioned to A to "think sticky vibes", and Evan took up a chant of "Stick. Stick! Stick." You have all of our support, obviously! :D

  4. Wow! what a journey. Hope all things do what they are supposed to do!

  5. 17 days. 17 days until I get to do a huge happy dance for you. Take care of yourself!
