Ellen, I wouldn't worry about the amount of cells. Afterall they would of had to grow more in the dish anyway, better they do it in your nice cushy uterus!!! Besides! You've got FOUR in there! Wow! My Dr. wouldn't let me do more than two but my second FET I only had three that made it and wasn't going to freeze one so convinced him to go for it. Good thing, I'm PG with one (and I bet it was that last C- low cell one that made it!) We'll all have a bunch of strong little fighters on our hands. That stupid two week wait will fly, then you'll get to find out how many bambinos you get to love!!! Smile. Leslie

Ellen, 4 celled embryos go on to be babies. I've posted that before and Celia is proof. My babies to be are a result of either 5 cells or 6 cells. My embryos have never made it to 8 cells, morulas or blasts prior to transfer. (The ones that drs rave are excellent) Remember, slow and steady wins the race
 
. I have to agree with you on the fragmentation of the larger embryos. But also remember that most embryos do have some fragmentation.

Best of luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Keep thinking positvie Ellen. I had 13 follicles and only 4 made it. You just need to keep positive.

I will keep thinking about you!

Thank you Trisha,Glinda and Tanya. I've been having cramps for the past two days and I feel like that might be good news since I am 7 days post retrieval today. I'm hoping it's implantation cramping. It gives me such peace of mind to know so many people who got pg from the slow growers.

Ellen, I'm so glad to hear you say that you have cramps and that you take it as a positive sign. I have had cramps off and on the whole 2 week wait and have been majorly stressing about it. I don't have them in the morning, but by night, they are in full bloom (noy sure why). Are yours strong? What did you say your test date is? Mine is thurs. and I am terrified.

Glinda, glad to see you back on the site....we missed you and thought maybe you had the kids
