After much waiting and fingernail-biting, the lab let me know that 6 eggs were able to be ICSI’d. 4 fertilized. Of course I wish I could have gotten a 100% fertilization rate, but I am excited to know that we have 4 little embryos dividing and growing at this point. It is also reassuring to know that the little embryos are made by healthy young fertiles. I am reminding myself not to be greedy. J and I just need 2 excellent quality embryos to transfer on Friday. The lab will give us another update tomorrow afternoon, so keep sending positive, thriving energy to “the babies.” Incidentally, we keep talking about the 4 embryos as though they are fully functioning children hanging out in the lab. “Do you think they are lonely?” “Do you think they are thinking about us too?” Do you think they will like the dogs?”
Ok, deep breaths.
