I am no expert but I do have some experience with flushing so here is MHO.

I wouldn't donor cows are notorious for retaining embryos after flushing that is why they are give a shot of prostaglandin right after flushing and then gnrh a week or so later if you do not see a heat within a certain period you are to do the procedure again. The reason why you ask ??? is that there have been donor cows lost because of being pregnant with triplets or more over something that definitely could have been preventable.

I am sure your embryologist should suggest against it as well also the chances of that embryo settling are very slim it will probably be resorpted (sp). You are best to AI your flush cow at a later date to the semen of your choice.

Some people may say to go ahead but for me flushing and ET's are very expensive and if you do not know what you are doing you can easily blow 10 grand by making very bad choices.
