Transfer is over! Mixed feelings...

Well, my transfer is done and I have completed my 24 hours of bedrest. We arrived at Walter Reed at 8am after I drank the prerequisite 32 ounces of water. That pretty much sucked! By the time the transfer came about, I could barely hold it in. We sat in a room for a long time, then the embryologist/doctor came in and talked to us. We had 6 surviving embryos at day 3....none of them were grade 1 or 2 which is very sad. Grade 1 and 2 are considered high quality. We had 4-grade 3's, 1-grade 4, and 1-grade 5. Grade 3's apparently are considered average. They recommended that we transfer back just two of the grade 2's because it was our first IVF, but we chose to transfer 3 thinking that the risk of having triplets was going to be very low....the chance of even getting pregnant are lower because of the grade.

I'm having issues staying postive about this. I guess it was just such a shock to not have any high grade embryos...it felt like it took some of my positiveness away, and now our chances are just not anywhere near as good. I don't even know that that is the case, but its just how I feel right now. Hopefully, i can kick this attitude soon and be positive.
