fertilization report is in... at last!!

After several hours of sitting around staring at my phone, tapping my feet, and trying to ward off every "worst case scenario" that was clawing its way into my head, the call is in and the news is good.

Turns out they retreived a total of 21 eggs yesterday, 19 of which were deemed mature. They did ICSI on 9 and 6 of those fertilized, and natural fertilization on the other 10, 7 of which fertilized. So, we have 13 little embies growing in an incubator as I type!

We're tentatively scheduled for a 3-day transfer on Saturday but they will call us Saturday morning to push us back to a 5-day transfer if everyone is still developing at a satisfactory rate.

We are so relieved. Thanks again to everyone who has followed our journey and kept our spirits up. Next update will be Saturday morning!
