Update and embryo grade
Wed, 12-09-2009 - 1:17pm

(cross-post) Okay, the good news is my lining is now measuring a "perfect" 9.4 mm -- yippie! -- so the transfer is all set for 12/14.

The not-so-good news is two-fold. First, after telling me the two remaining embies were frozen in separate straws, they're now telling me that nope, they were frozen together after all.

Nice lining improvement! That must have been a relief to hear!
You're right- you had one healthy baby from this batch, so maybe the 'OK' one will work out...you never know until you try!
