Can anyone tell me for a day 3 transfer what would be the best cell count. I had 2 embies that were 8 cell grade A and 2 that were 7b's. Is 8A the best they could be at day 3?
Last month was my first IVF and I had one 8B and the rest 6 A's. I am hoping that the 8A's will make the difference.
I hate the dreaded 2WW, it makes my mind go all sorts of ways! Thanks in advance for your input. :-\

Hi coll1964

I don't know for sure but I think with a 3-day transfer, 8 cells is pretty darn good. Of course it isn't a guarantee. I had 2 embryos transfered back, one a 3-cell, one a 4-cell and both D quality (the worst) and I becamse pg and had a healthy baby 7 years ago. I am sure that the more cells, the better it's developing which can mean the healthier it is. It is too bad our tummies aren't a crystal window in which to watch and find out what's happening. The 2ww will be over eventually and you will have your answer. Good luck

Were your embies fresh or frozen?

Hi Coll,
Good luck with your 2ww. I will throw lots of baby dust your way for a ++++++ at the end of your long wait! Keep us posted.

Thanks Meridith & Wantsbaby, the embies were fresh. I had my b/w today for progesterone level and Friday will be preg. test. I am feeling like I am getting my period though but am hopeful for once the signs are wrong >:(
The most frustrating thing is if the eggs are good quality and I had my uterus checked last Oct. for endometriosis (sp?) etc, why am I not getting pregnant??
My DH is thinking that if this one does not work that we should push for a day 5 transfer see if the embies are going to blast. What do you all think? Thanks again.

I think a 5 day transfer would be great, then you know they can implant. Good luck and I pray and hope that you are pg and that this long journey is over. Take care and keep in touch
