We put back 3 embryos. Doc said they are all very good (6 cell, 8 cell, and 10 cell) and they still think we have a great chance of implantation of 2 or less. There is less than a 5% chance for triplets but we said we didn't care. We took their suggestion. They are very positive about the embryos. The remaining eggs are still being watched so we won't know how many are freezing for a few days. So, now we wait. I'm watching a few movies and taking it easy this afternoon. Very excited and feeling very good about this cycle.

I'm feeling pretty good, but the heartburn is getting old.

I sure hope you are right....I would LOVE a BFP! I am taking it easy today and DH is awesome helping me. My beta is 12/16. I am feeling really good about this cycle....I agree with you that one two or three would be fine....we will be blessed either way.

p.s. how are you feeling these days?

Hey Carolyn- congrats! YOu must be so happy to have this cycle (well, for the most part, anyway) under your belt! 3 embies sounds great- I've transfered as many as 4 before!
How many guys do you have left that are still growing? did they decide to do a 3dt b/c the 3 guys you transferred were clearly the best, or what?
Can't wait to hear your results in 2 weeks!!
