First off Thank you all for your support and encouragement. I have to make this fast because I am at work, but I know you all are waiting to hear the fertilization report.
Last night was awful. I had these waves of hopes and then these waves of sadness. I am surprised I slept at all.
I just got the call that FIVE of the six eggs have fertilized! Can you believe it? Thank you lord. I know we are not out of the woods, but I am happy with the number today, it is better than anticipated (so glad we chose to do ICSI).
This morning all five embryos appear to have normal chromosomes and have split into two cells. Transfer is set for Friday, if all five are looking fantastic on Friday they may push it to Sunday. But that was a big maybe. For now I am able to take a deep breathe, and I am thankful. Still sad, worried, and disappointed, but thankful.
Physically, I feel 100% better than last time. Recovery was a snap, unfortunately emotionally I am 100% worse. We have so much riding on this emotionally and financially, last time it was all so new and inexpensive relative to this. **Sigh.
Please please please keep our five little embies in your thoughts and prayers.
