We have not yet received a call from the lab to let us know whether the 3rd embryo made it back to freeze. I'm expecting a call today and I will call them if I haven't heard from them by tomorrow. I know we have 14 others still on ice, so I won't be devastated if this one embryo doesn't make it to freeze. However, I feel like it might give me some clue as to what is (or isn't) happening inside my uterus right now.
Here's my thinking. If this lone embryo developed into a blast and was growing enough to make it to freeze, that means the two they transferred should be doing the same inside me. Assuming my lining was sufficient (eh, not sure about that one), they should be burrowing in nicely by now. I know that each embryo is different, but these were from the same fresh cycle, went through the same freeze process at the same time, and went through the same thaw process at the same time as the lone embryo. Might be flawed logic on my part, but that's what I'm thinking.
If however, the embryo didn't make it to blast, I will stick with the theory that they transferred the best 2 out of the 3 and that what happened with the lone embryo has no bearing on what the other 2 are doing inside me. See, nothing but positivity oozing out of my pores today. Or maybe that's the oil from the PIO shots.
I initially thought it was a good sign that the lab hasn't called yet because if the lone embryo had already arrested (stopped growing), they would have called to let me know it didn't make it to freeze. However, I think it is more likely that they would wait to even check on it until the day they would refreeze it (today?). So if it had arrested, they wouldn't even know until they went to freeze it.
This is driving me crazy.
