I don’t know how other women manage to work or get sleep when going through an IVF cycle.
I am nervous, excited and scared. All I can think about is how our embryos are doing!!
Thankfully, Dr. L called nice and early this morning to help ease my mind. All 9 embryos have survived another night. Whew! Out of those 9, it looks like we have 6 that are of a top grade.
2 nine cell embryos
3 eight cell embryos
2 seven cell embryos
1 six cell embryo
1 eleven cell embryo (this little overachiever needs to slow down! )
Dr. L said that they liked to see between 6-10 cells at this stage, so we seems to be progressing at a good rate. I know that it would be very rare for all 9 to make it to the blastocyst stage and it’s sorta like the survival of the fittest, but I am attached to all 9 of them! M and I made (ok, with the help of science) these nine beautiful embryos and they are the closest things that we have to being parents. It’s actually sorta of cute how involved M is now. After this morning’s call, he gave me a high five and said “good job”. He’s been all smiles about being able to field a baseball team.
Unfortunately, we won’t get any more updates until we go in for the ET on Wednesday. Dr. L asked if we were leaning towards transferring one or two. I think we are leaning towards two (should we be so lucky) but I am trying not to get ahead of ourselves.
Wishing the next 48 hours would fly by and our baseball team continues to show progress.
