Dear
doctor-

I had the retrieval on Saturday. They were able to retrieve 15 eggs. Yesterday (sunday) they called to tell us that 13 were mature & 10 were fertilized.We are scheduled for tomorrow (Tuesday) for a day 3 transfer. We have been pushing for a day 5 blast, because of all the reading I have been doing. They said it is up to the lab and they would call me tomorrow if I shouldn't come in tomorrow and go in thursday.

The docs weren't sure if we needed ICSI (my DH has 4xs the amount of sperm but his morphology was low). Should I call them today to ask?

Should I call today to see how many are progressing?
Are there any specific questions I need to ask???
I am so new to all this...

Properly done assesment of morphology correlates well with the ability of sperm to fertilize eggs. If morphology is really poor, I would recommend ICSI, but that is a decision which should be made before retrieval. As far as growing embryos to blastocysts, apparently most labs cannot reliably do that.
Good luck.
