More updates

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!!

    I love it and I can just imagine the conversation where J marches over the phone, announcing she is going to find out just how many "several" actually is.In 24 hours you'll officially be knocked up! I hope and pray those two little superstars will do the trick and you won't even need your frosties.I'll be thinking about you tomorrow morning and will look forward to your post to see how it all went. Good luck!
