Original post:I have an update of sorts. A different person called from the IVF lab this morning. He said that I have “several embryos” which “seem to be developing well.” Then he re-iterated that my transfer is scheduled for tomorrow morning. He said they would bring photos of our embryos then.
OK- I am happy that some of our embryos are developing well and that I will get embryos to transfer.
BUT- I want a number!! Are 4 still doing well? Has a fifth embryo made a late start? Are we down to 3 embies now? *banging head on desk*
Now, breathing and reminding myself that all I really want is 2 excellent quality embryos to transfer, implant and grow into a healthy child/ren.
Now back to being excited….
Update: My ever assertive J called the woman she has made pals with at the RE’s office to get more detailed information. I love my wife! Now we know that 2 eggs did not thaw well. 2 eggs did not fertilize at all and 4 fertilizing is quite good. She then said that 2 embryos are looking spectatcular! Two other embryos are still living and dividing but they are just “looking good.” The clinic will let those 2 good embryos develop to day 5: if they make it to the blastocyst stage, they will be frozen. So yay, we still have 4 embryos.
Happy happy, joy joy!!
