I asked the nurse if she could give me any details, but she said that she didn't have that information. The only thing she hears from the embryologist is whether or not we can wait until day 5. She did say that in order to be considered for a Day 5 transfer, you need to have least 5 grade 1-2 embryos (6-8 cells). That sounds great to me.

In other news, I started the progesterone supplement (Crinone gel) yesterday. So far so good with that one. I've only used two so far, but I haven't noticed anything weird or uncomfortable yet. On Thursday I'll add in the estrogen pills as well. At least I'm finished with the injections!
