So sorry I have been MIA for a few days. I'm still here! So out of the 13 retrieved eggs, 9 were mature, 1 wasn't good enough to be ICSI'ed, so we were down to 8...of the 8, 6 didn't fertilize well (the embryologist was stumped saying that for some reason my eggs didn't like hubby's sperm ) but 2 fertilized. We were bummed!! I should have posted something then but I was so worried the other 2 would not do well. We got a call at about 48 hours saying the 2 went to 4 cells. We began feeling much more optimistic about the 2 little growing embies. On day 3, today, one embryo is at 8 and the other is at a 5 but still in the process of dividing. We transferred both this morning at 10AM MST. Feeling good that both of them are now in me, plus the transfer procedure went really well--it was really easy and I didn't hardly feel a thing. The valium helped with that too I'm sure. My in-laws came Tuesday night and we had fun with them yesterday. After getting the call that the two were now four cells, I felt like I could actually relax a bit and enjoy our company. We had a fun day and went out to dinner at P.F. Chang's. So, the 2 week wait begins today! Today, I am catching up on America's Got Talent, Masterchef, Pretty Little Liars, So You think You Can Dance, and Big Brother. I have a long day ahead..haha!!
