    Success Stories - IVF Day 5 morula/pre-blast transfer

    Hi girls,

    I'm new to this website, but it was recommended that I could get some great advice and experience with similar situations. I just completed my first IVF cycle and had my 5 day ET today. My RE put back in two grade B morula embies (no blasts to transfer). However, he noted that my ER was late in the day and my transfer was early in the day on day 5, so that could have had something to do with the embies not making it to the blast stage. However, I'm super concerned. Has anyone else has luck with transfering two morula embies on day 5 and gotten their BFP. RE said 50% chance -- if they were blast he'd give me a 60% chance given my age, diagnosis etc. However, I can't help, but worry that these little embies weren't growing the way they should be. Any successes with this similar situation would be helpful! It's hard to stay positive when you know they should be at a certain place (blasts) by day five, but they are somewhat lagging behind.

    Thanks girls!

    I didn't have any blasts on Day 5 either. There were 4 "front-runners" that were compacting when they called me on Day 4. My clinic pushed me to a Day 6 Transfer. By Day 6, 2 of them were 1AA blasts. A 3rd one went to blast stage on Day 7.

    I ended up transferring 1 blast and freezing 2. So, 75% of my morulas made it to blast! I have had two good Beta's so far. Waiting on my 3rd Beta result this afternoon. I think it was cle from the March/April string that Kijanka mentioned who posted this: List your IVF Success Here!! - Page 26 - FertilityCommunity.com I kept reading them and it made me feel better! Keep your chin up!

    this exact thing happened to me on my 1st ivf, so i know exactly how you feel. when i went in for my day 5 transfer, i was super worried too. the nurses did tell me that women get bfp with morulas all the time. i have pcos and had 16 mature follies. out of the 16, only 5 fertilized. on day 5, i had 4 morulas and 1 early blast. my re put in 3 grade B morulas and 1 grade B early blast....totally 4. now, my cycle was a bfn, BUT i have read about many women on this site who have had successful cycles with morulas.

    wewannababy, we'd love to hear if your cycle resulted in a BFP? I am in the same boat as you... This is my first IVF cycle and we transferred one morula and one early blast on day 5; both with fragmentation. I'm feeling cramping, but I understand that is simply from the progesterone suppositories I insert daily. Would really love to hear the completion of your story!! I'm needing the support. I'm a mess.

    wewannababy & hope4Brookelyn- I am a success story! I did IVF in January 2013. I had 21 eggs retrieved, but only 11 were mature. 7 fertilized with ICSI, had 5 still going on day 3, but by day 5 all I had left were two not-so-great morulas. The doctor was clearly not very optimistic. But both stuck! I am feeding my twin 21-month old daughters dinner right now. Wewannababy- I'm hoping your cycle was successful! And hope4Brookelyn- fingers crossed for you!! (I took a hpt the morning of my first beta at 6dp5dt, and it was a super faint positive. My beta was 29, then two days later 109.) Good luck!!

    Vegasbabies, this is great news! Thank you for the rejuvenated hope. My first beta test is Monday and I'm still praying obsessively for a positive result. I haven't caved and done a HPT, so it will be a surprise; good or bad. God willing this will be our blessing. I appreciate the time you took to share your story and brighten my day. Much love! ♡

    Got my bloodwork back today and it was negative. I'm devestated and scared to go through this again.

    hope4brooklyn, I am so sorry to hear your disappointing news. My heart goes out to you. I have had 5 embryo transfers, 3 of which were BFNs and 2 of which were chemical pregnancies, so I understand how devastated you are feeling. My advice to you is not to give up. From what I understand, it's very common for IVF not to work on the first go-round. The doctors have to learn what works for your body and adjust the protocol, etc. Make sure to schedule an appointment or phone call with your doctor to understand what they plan to differently next time and if they have any thoughts on what, if anything, went wrong this time. Hang in there.
    IVF for PGD to prevent passing on genetic disorder. Me: 31, DH: 31. No kids.
    1st FET 5/14 - BFN
    2nd FET 8/14 - Chemical
    3rd FET 9/14 - BFN
    4th FET 11/14 - BFN
    5th FET 2/15 - Chemical
    6th FET 6/15: Cancelled; all embryos PGD/PGS abnormal
    7/22/15: Starting 6th round of stims - microflare protocol
