Did you do a 3dt or a 5dt to get pg? My RE is debating doing a 3dt with AH this time around. I have always done blast transfers before and am very nervous about doing a 3dt.
ETA- you can vote more than once for more than one pg!

We did a 3 day transfer the first time.
2nd time because we had alot of embies and this was our one shot we did a 5 day to choose the one embie to transfer. The thing is we had 13 frozen lost 7 in the thaw and 3 went on to blasts and only one was good to transfer. So I have to say Im in favor of 3 days transfers because of the potential loss taking them to blasts.
In the 3 day transfer we had 3 to transfer and there sleeping in the next room.

We did 3dt with ICSI and AH. We're expecting twins this summer--so it really works!

I don't think you can vote more than once...at least I can't figure out how to do it. Twice I got pg from 3dt. First time produce a singleton, second time started with twins but ended with a singleton.Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. ~Anonymous

to vote multiple choice you have to choose the 2 or more at the time of voting. Once you vote then you cant vote again.

Hi Tara! At my clinic (Cleveland Clinic), they used to do all 3dt like everyone else years ago. Then they jumped on the 5dt blast transfer bandwagon, and had great success. But surprisingly, not much different than the success they were having with the 3dt, but MORE identical twinning with blast transfers and the fact that they lost a lot more embies waiting for them to go to blast. But in the long run, their success per transfer was nearly identical.
So they went back to doing mostly 3dts. Their stats are the best in the state, and they are usually on top of all things new and exciting. I think a 3dt w/AH is worth a shot! Worked for me!! I so want to see you have success. Ask if they would consider doing a co-culture or just something to mix it up a bit? xoxo-StacStacie(37) DH(30)

Hi Tara :
My clinic only does 3dt. Always has. I asked the same question to them. I was reading for awhile that 5dt are more successfull. The answer I got is that there is nothing conclusive. They said that "controlled studies" show that 3dt and 5dt have the same success rates.
I would consider doing the 3dt with AH. My opinion on the whole thing is the embryos are better inside you then inside some petri dish right??
Good luck with your next cycle. I know how badly you want this for your family.
