I was at work today, not expecting to hear anything from the clinic as they said they would ring on Monday. But sure enough at 8am, while I was right in the middle of handling passengers, my phone vibrated in my pocket, and I just ran off to answer it, it was the embryologist.
So…. from 18 eggs collected, 14 of those were mature and 6 fertilised!
I rang M straight away with the news. Again, we had been expecting more so we were a little disappointed but then we got to thinking, wow, we have 6 potential babies waiting there in the lab for us! And from all of the reading forums and blogs, trying to understand if 6 is a good number, there’s just no answer. No amount of maths or probability can predict our result. If it’s in our destiny it will happen and all we can do is stay positive and emanate positivity 🙂
The lab will call us on Tuesday morning with an update. If it looks like they will survive to day 5, I’ll have the transfer on Thursday, otherwise it’ll be on Tuesday 🙂
And my amazing wife is doing well after collection, still sore down below and she’s got very swollen boobs but other than that she’s not in pain, which is great 🙂
