Fertilization Report

Of the 4 eggs retrieved yesterday, 3 were mature and fertilized. This morning, 2 were growing normally. According to the embryologist, 95% of embryos continue to grow once they get to this point, so I'm hoping we can transfer both this Friday.

One more hurdle down! When I returned the call to the embryology lab this morning I thought I was going to vomit while I was on hold waiting for her to get on the phone. All this stuff is so anxiety provoking.

The embryologist said that they won't look at them again until Friday morning when they'll grade them then do the assisted hatching right before the transfer.

It's weird and very lovely to think about two potential babies that my husband and I created growing in a lab. I wonder if they are boys or girls.

  1. Sorry it's taken me so long to check in--have been ridiculously busy this week!

    This stuff is so incredibly anxiety provoking, isn't it? I think two sounds great--I'd be very happy with that (and I suspect my results will be similar or less). I guess you're doing a 3-day transfer then? Good luck and let us know how it goes!
