Fertilization Report

The embriologist just called with our report - we have 9 embryos! 14 of the eggs they got yesterday were mature. They ICSIed 7 and didn't ICSI 7. Of the natural group, 5 fertilized and of the ICSI group, 4 fertilized. We are very happy with these numbers and Mr. C is thrilled that his "little guys" worked!

Last time, we also had 9 on the first day after retrieval but only had 3 by day 3. Let's hope all 9 of these little embabies keep on going! We'd LOVE to have some to freeze. That would be our dream! Grow, embies, grow!!!

By the way, I'm feeling good so far and just having the normal post-retrieval discomfort. I don't want to jinx anything, but YAY!

Also, do I have a wonderful husband, or what? His comment on my post yesterday was amazing. It made me cry. He's a good nurse and keeps the G.atorade coming! I love you, Mr. C!

Wow! That is terrific news! I'm glad to see lots fertilized in the non-ICSI group (they will ICSI only 1/2 of mine too, unlike last time where they ICSI'd all). Great job!! Hopefully, you'll have some to freeze this time!!! Keep us posted! Rest up and relax these next few days!

Oh yeah baby! I could see the smile on your face while I was reading your post.

I too almost cried when reading Mr. C's post.

Get your rest. Your going to need it.

That is wonderful! GROW EMBIES GROW! I am so happy for you. I hope that you have a few to freeze... but more importantly, I hope that you won't need them.
