We are a go for Day 3. Yes, there is some thought that a day 5 blast transfer is better, but due to numbers and quality we're going with Day 3--and need every positive thought, religious spirit, and good vibe.

About the grading:
Each clinic is independent in their grading. The history: When IVF first started, it was up to the labs to determine the grading schema. Since there were so few labs and the pregnancy rates pretty low, there seemed to be no worries about it.
Now that IVF is available to the masses--or at least those with good insurance or deep pockets, it's more of a nuisance to lab directors to go back through all the cases and change it to an industry standard.
