GOOD LUCK!! I wish you the best, that is great news. :o)
When I did my first IVF after 2 failed IUI's they retrieved 19 eggs and I think 10 also fertilized just like you. But by the fourth day we were down to just one as the other two that had looked really good too on day 3 were not anymore. I couldn't believe it as I was so proud of 19 eggs retrievel and was hoping to freeze some for later but no only one survived and looked strong. This was transfered on day 5 and I now have a son.
It just goes to show you only need 1 good egg.
If I was doing IVF again which I may have to soon then I want to do a transfer on day 5. It gives the eggs more time to grow and they can rule out the weaker ones.That is what they told me at the time. But then again I am not an expert and they most have reasons for doing transfers on day 3 as well.
I wish you all the luck in the world. It will happen!
