ET of the Lone Ranger is complete
Sun, 09-20-2009 - 2:00pm

Hi Everyone,

Thanks so much for all of the messages on the other thread. Means a lot!

We just got home from ET. It went as well as we could have hoped. Yesterday our one little guy was a 4 cell, grade 1 and today he was an 8 cell, grade 1, which the doc said is the best it can be. He gave us a 15% chance of this working. I've been in this exact situation before for c#3- only 1 embie we had and it was also an 8c1.

So now, i'm in the 2ww and beta is 10/2. Fingers crossed for a complete miracle!

Kate --
A grade A 8-cell is good. I wish I would have had one of those with any of my transfers. I know it is hard to keeping hoping but we know that miracles do happen and ladies have gotten sticky pregnancies off of worse embies. P&PT that this one will be the one for you.
