    any 4 cell 1 embryo transfer success stories out there?

    Ok I was just wondering if anyone has a sucess story for 4 cell embryo transfer???

    Our little embryo was only a 4 cell b grade (5-25% fragmentation) and fair (symmetry of the cells graded as good, fair, or poor). I am holding out hope that now that it is with me maybe it will continue to divide and do well!

    I was never told what the grades of my 4 little ones were when we did our 1st IVF & for my last 2 cycles, I did ZIFT so they were transferred while they were still zygotes!

    I have seen all kinds of grades & cell sizes go on to be successful pregnancies though!

    You have EVERY reason to remain hopeful!! When's your beta?

    Yes, my friend had a similar situation, I just posted about her on Jep's post. Two sad embies, grade c, very fragmented, one a 6-cell, one a 4-cell. Both took, and the two girls they became are delightful amost-three-year-olds

    Good luck!

    Thanks Diana! I cannot stress enough how wonderful it is to have this great support system of understanding women who know exactly what I am going through! My beta is on friday the 20th! I hope everything is going well with you. What are you doing now? Are you going through IVF? I take that back... I just saw that you have an ultrasound on saturday and you are pregnant after a FET... congrats!!!!!

    Success Mentioned

    Well, I transferred four (two 8-celled and two 4-celled) and initially became pregnant with triplets, so one of those 4-cellers DID implant. We lost one baby (we'll never know which one) around 10 weeks, and my B/G twins are now 4.

    So, YUP it can (and does) work!!

    Good luck,
    Meg

    We also have had embryos that were dividing well but with fragmentation, along with embryos of better quality that were growing/dividing more slowly.

    I want to second clc's response - your stories are inspiring and do give a lot of hope. THANK YOU!! It sure helps in an otherwise very uncertain time.
