Dividing - But Very Slowly

I just got the call from Suzanne and things are not looking great. We now have 4 at the 2-cell stage. There are 3 of them grading a 4 on a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the best, and 1 grading a 3. The 5th one is not making it. They examined them at 44 hours this time instead of 47 hours as they did last time, so hopefully that accounts for some of the difference and they will catch up. I am scheduled for a 12:30 pm transfer tomorrow, a little later in the day to give them time to grow. She asked me if we would consider transferring 3. I just don't think I am willing to risk triplets, not because I wouldn't want 3 babies (though I know it would be incredibly difficult), but because it can be life threatening for them. A twin pregnancy is risky enough.

Please be praying.

Becky -- thank you for the update. Please let me know if you need someone to let Annie out? On second thought, I'll shoot you an email. :)
