3-Day Transfer - Embryo questions

Hi there, this is my first time posting. I have stalked these boards for three years now, since we found out we'd be unlikely to have a baby with my eggs and have been through a lot. I'm 36 yo, DH same age. We're super healthy, but I just have an undetectable AMH. Last year, we tried IVF and while ended up with three 5-day blasts miraculously from my 4 eggs retrieved, only one tested PGS normal and was perfect 5AA. It didn't take.

Now, we've moved on to donor eggs, figuring we'd have a better shot with younger eggs. We purchased a lot of 6 eggs from My Egg Bank (from a 22 year old) and they were fertilized last week. All fertilized norally, but when they called me with the 3-day update yesterday, the doctor said that none had progressed as they had hoped. Therefor, they suggested a 3-day transfer of a 5 cell and 7 cell because they did not think any of the embryos would make it to 5-day blast stage. I am, of course, optimistic and trying to be positive, but I am shocked and disappointed that donor eggs would not have performed as well as my old eggs did!

I guess my real question is...is there any hope for a 5-cell and 7-cell 3 day transfer? I know nothing about 3-day transfers. Thanks so much. I'd like honest answers please - success and failures would both be great.

There is no better place for an embryo than the womb!!!
There are plenty of success stories when a day 3 embryo.
Is ur husband’s sperm ok?Were the eggs frozen?!
I read a bit about frozen eggs in the past and the picture I got from testimonials is a big No to frozen eggs as it lowers the quality of the eggs.
Anyway be optimistic and have faith in ur embryos!!
Good luck!

Good morning. I am a gestational carrier, so this is all foreign to me. Today is day 7 after the embryo transfer. This morning, while getting ready for work, I all of a sudden felt very sweaty, dizzy, and felt like I may pass out. I had to sit down for about 10 minutes. Anyone else ever experience this?
