The Fertilization Report is in

WOO HOO!

Of the 22 retrieved, ALL of them were mature!

17 fertilized normally and are doing well. We will know tomorrow if we have Day 3 or Day 5 transfer, but a Day 5 seems most likely at this point. Of course, we could lose some of our embryos, but at this point, it should not be too many.

Grateful is the word of the day. I am moved to tears- we have a chance at having a healthy baby and I could not be more grateful. Thank you to everyone who is cheering me on! I read your comments every day and take so much strength from them.

Wishing you a wonderful day...I am walking (or laying on the couch, all bloated) on air!

  2. Wow! That's awesome!
    I really hope I'm following in your footsteps.
    Does your clinic transfer two embryos at day 5? Mine will only do one if we make it to blastocyst. Part of me wishes they would do two, but I know that a healthy singleton pregnancy is the goal.
