Fert report

Five of the twelve embryos have fertilized normally! What I mostly care about is that we have embryos to transfer, so I'm partially exhaling knowing that there are little ChanceApollo bubbles growing. I'll exhale fully once at least two of them are inside. Of course immediately after that exhale, there will be a sharp and drastic inhale…the better to hold my breath through the two-week wait.

We will more than likely have a three-day transfer on Friday at 11:30. We'll find out for sure early Friday morning when they'll call to tell us to either get on the road or wait until Sunday for a 5 day transfer.

Friday also just happens to be Chance's Eat Cake Day (otherwise known as her birthday). How's that for auspicious?

That damned farting unicorn had better continue busting grumpies of Skittle-scented rainbow glitter.

    Sounds like GREAT news!

  21. WhichBox on January 22, 2009 at 6:19 pm

    I think I’ve stopped breathing altogether. You keep inhaling and exhaling, nice and calm and steady-like, you hear?

  22. Bec on January 22, 2009 at 6:27 pm

    Just wanted to say good luck tomorrow. 🙂

  23. Jenn on January 22, 2009 at 9:05 pm
