THREE Babies in the Womb!

God answered our prayer in that we didn't have to thaw our back-up embryos and pay close to $900 in fees! All 4 of our first choice embryos were thawed; 3 survived and 1 is now in Heaven with our other 2 babies. We were sad to hear that we lost one, but thankful that I now have THREE babies in my belly!

We had 2 expanding hatching blasts graded a 3AB & 3BB and 1 blast graded a 3AB. We were a little saddened to hear that they weren't as far along in their development than a grade 3. Last time we had a 5AB and a 6AA (a 6AA is the highest grading) and yet, neither attached. So, we know grading doesn't mean anything - God's sovereignty means everything! Pregnancies do come from grade 3 embryos (after all, we were all once a grade 3 embryo in the womb!), so we're trusting that God's grace will continue growing them. The embryologist did say that if they continued to grow, that our expanding hatching 3AB baby would likely implant today or tomorrow! My beta isn't until Friday, October 1st which surprised me (which is 12 days past transfer) and my last beta was only 9 days past transfer. October 1st seems so far away! But, all we can do is continue praying for their little lives and wait. :)

Our 3 precious babies!



P.S. I will get around to checking in on my other EA blogging mommies soon!

You are so right -- God is sovereign in it all. And I love your perspective that we were once all 3A embryos! So true!

My RE doesn't even grade his embryos anymore...he says it really doesn't mean much and they get pregnancies from pretty much all of them. With our EA embryos...neither one of them were even hatching....and we got pregnant....soooo just put the grating out of your mind and think about those beautiful babies in your belly right now. yay! so glad the transfer went well, you got your first choice embryos and you didn't have to pay extra fees!

I will be praying for a good outcome!

Em said...

Yay! Praying for a comfy womb!

Holly said...

10/1 will be here before you know it. Will be praying every day for you to receive good news. Stay away from those little sticks. Also saying a prayer for your new babe in heaven.

Take it easy, don't work yourself too crazy packing, moving, etc...the time is gonna fly by!

p.s. I insensitively forgot to let you know that I am sorry for your loss of your other little one. I know you are grieving while praising. I continue to pray for you all (and so does Pookie Bear--she still prays for all the "babies & their mommies" ((hugs))
