Expected Cell division by day 4

Asunflower - April 12

I had retrieval on Sunday and expected to transfer on Friday. I am hoping that I have blasts to transfer. I had 28 eggs retrieved, 23 were mature, 21 fertlized and as of yesterady 19 were only at a 2 cell division. What should be the expected cell divison bu tomorrow, the day prior to transfer? What do you think my odds are to have blasts to transfer?
This is 2nd attempt. First attempt, had 19 eggs retrieved, 11 mature and 6 fertilized day 1, then following day 5 more matured on day 2 and were fertilized. Did day 3 transfer of 1 5 cell and 2 4 cell embryos but had 2 that made it to balstocyst to freeze.

I cannot tell you prognosis for blastocyst formation in the lab you are using. That is very laboratory dependent. On day 3, we usally see embryos with greater than 4 cells. Usually we have some at 8 cells. Obviously there are those that are not more than 2 cells.
Good luck.
