Out of my 10 retrieved eggies....


9 were mature....


and 8 fertilized!!!

I'm so happy about that!! So now I just have to wait until tomorrow morning at this time again and call to see how they are developing! It's very normal that all of them won't make it to transfer, but I'm praying that most of them do!!! I can't believe I have 8 little embabies in a lab right now. This one pulls my heart-strings for sure!!!

I'll update tomorrow morning at 10AM when I can call again to find out their progress! I'm soooo relieved!!!!

**Thursday Update**

I just got the info from the embryologist and everything is looking good! They wanted to see them be at least 2 cells today, and I got more than that!

I have five 4-cell embies, one 3-cell embie, and two 2-cell embies!

Of course!! Well, I will get a report every day at 10 am to let me know how they are growing. The embryologist checks on them once a day first thing in the morning to see their progress. For example, tomorrow they expect them to be at least 2 cells. The embryologist will let me know how many cells they are up to, and which ones are looking best. It's his job to check them for fragmenting, progression, etc. On the morning of transfer (Friday ), they will do one last report and sit down with us to decide which are best to transfer. They will only transfer 2 due to our ages (I'm 28, DH is 29), so we'll pick the best ones. They will "grade" them according to how good they are looking taking everything into consideration. As long as the ones that are leftover are healthy and "strong", we'll be freezing them. I hope that makes sense. It's all new to me as well!
