ten is my new favourite number


Yes we have ten successfully fertilized embryos!!  I am so relieved right now.  I received the call at nine am this morning and was so happy to hear that it was a nurse calling us.  For some sadistic reason the nurse during our information session warned us that if a doctor calls us for the fertilization report, he or she will be delivering bad news... so I spent the early hours of this morning willing a nurse to call us and not a doctor!

Our transfer is currently scheduled for Monday, meaning it will be a five day blastocyst transfer.  If anything should change between today and tomorrow then they will call us and change it to a Saturday three day transfer.

While delivering the news to my Husband it started to sink in that it actually worked... they actually fertilized, my eggs and his sperm actually like each other.  It has taken a very long time for them to actually meet but it worked.  So now I find myself thinking of those embryos in a dish at the lab hopefully nice and warm and growing.  It is strange to know that a part of you is out growing in a lab somewhere.  Strange but kind of wonderful.

Each time we pass a key step things feel more real.  I feel flooded with hope.
