Fertilization Report

Alright, just heard from the nurse.  Of our 16 eggs, 12 were mature.  And of the 12 that were mature, 10 fertilized.  This is awesome!  So, we've got 10 little embryos in a little petri dish!  Or, more likely, in 10 little petri dishes!  I dunno, actually.  Do they like to hang together or do they need their space?

So we'll go in on Friday at 10:15am for the transfer.  Some will likely not make it to day three, and we won't know the quality of the embryos until then, and that will help determine how many we transfer.  I hope they are all Grade A perfect little embryos!

It is so so weird to think that there are little 2 celled (probably) organisms sitting in a lab that could someday be our child!  Science is fucking awesome.


  1. That is pretty fucking cool. I am so excited for you. Can't wait to hear the next news!

  2. awesome. wait, does that mean you have a higher chance of multiple birth? :)
