OMG

Fert report is in and it's very, very good.

20 eggs retrieved. 19 mature. 12 fertilized (4/9 ICSI, 8/10 conventional).

As you know, they'd only found 11 eggs by the time we left yesterday. I made the nurse double-check that she hadn't switched my chart with someone else's because the news seemed to good to be true. She pulled my records up in the computer to verify there hadn't been a transcription error and reported that I "can be happy all day."

That is only one less embryo than we had last time. Un-freaking-believable.

We made an eleventh-hour decision to do partial ICSI (like, in my cap and booties three minutes before the retrieval) as an insurance policy against the "no reported pregnancies" concern. Not only did we not need it but, apparently, it hurt rather than helped us. Oh well, there's no way to have known that in advance and with 12 embryos dividing in a lab across town, I am nowhere near complaining.
