Question about embryo quality

Day three there was an 8 cell and a 6 cell that looked "really good" (no grade given) so we transferred those two. Our re to...

I agree you should try and relax when you can. But dont be too hard on yourself, we are all stressed and worried. I dont think it'll hurt your chances!!

We did iui's with donor sperm, so that has been one of the great things about moving on to ivf, now we can use dh's sperm. So dh will have tese the day before er. The ivf is defenitly not free. We get $5,000 off the cost of ivf, which is awesome, but once you add the tese & icsi its still sooo expen...

I have not seen that before, but I learn something new on here everytime I visit. You must be frustrated! Did the re offer any theories on why there were no eggs. Was there no egg in the follicles they saw, or could they just not get them? I hope they have a good plan for you for next time!

Yes this is my first cycle. Im really anxious and nervous, I guess we all are though. Im feeling so down about the whole thing the past few days. Maybe just the lupron or the lull in treatment, it seems like it is taking forever!! So any ideas on how to stay positive through all of this?

I have heard of re's doing this also, but I know I would go crazy. I would ask to go in a few days and have another beta just so I know its going up, only because I wouldnt be able to wait for the u/s. I guess it depends on how nuerotic you are :shock: congrats to you guys!!
