FET Today!

April 17, 2013

After almost one year break, we continue our journey again. Today we transfer a 5-day beautiful blastocyst. The grade of our blastocyst is AA.  Everything went smoothly today. I had a full bladder right before the transfer – perfect timing!

To help myself better understand when to do HPT, Below is the development of  a 5-day embryo.

For 5-Day Embryo Transfer:
-1dpt … embryo is growing and developing
0dpt … Embryo is now a blastocyst
1dpt … Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day
2dpt … Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining
3dpt … Implantation begins,as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining
4dpt … Implantation process continues and morula buries deeper in the lining
5dpt … Morula is completely inmplanted in the lining and has placenta cells & fetal cells
6dpt … Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood
7dpt … More HCG is produced as fetus develops
8dpt … More HCG is produced as fetus develops
9dpt … HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on HPT

We have 5 Home Pregnancy test sticks available at home. Based on the development stage above, it looks like we can do the HPT as early as 6days after transfer. I know someone did HPT as early as 5dpt. Maybe I will do it on day 5, which is next Monday!

Fingers are crossing for our lovely embryo! Grow grow grow!!! 🙂
