And ... 

All three embryos graduated to Evelin's uterus! We were worried after last night's report, and we didn't hear anything from the doctor before we had to leave to make it to the clinic on time, but, after sitting around for a while, the doctor came out to give us the news: all three passed the final round of testing. We aren't out of the woods by any means yet, and we don't go in for a beta check/pregnancy test until Monday, 9 December, but it was a good feeling to have three embryos available for the transfer.

Of the three, one is looking strong, at just before the blastocyst stage; a second is clumping, but not as far along as the first one; and the third one is lagging a little bit. But all three passed the 10-chromosome defect tests. There is a chance that there could be a defect in one of the 17 chromosomes not tested, or any or all might decide to stop growing for any of a million reasons. (It is very, very unlikely for all three embryos to take.)

So that's the deal. The acupuncturist stopped by this afternoon for a post-transfer treatment, and she said the changes in Evelin's pulses feel good, so that is a nice, positive sign ...
