Fertilization Report!

As I was getting ready to head out the door for acupuncture this morning, I got the call! Are you ready for this? Of our whopping 40 eggs retrieved, 30 were mature. ICSI was used on all 30 eggs and of those, 24 were fertilized successfully! They went ahead and froze 10 of those embryos and are watching the remaining 14 to see how they grow. We are thrilled! The fact that they used ICSI on all of them really makes me wonder if we've had a fertilization issue all along (on top of everything else). Honestly, that makes me feel good -it's good to have answers. Either way, we are so excited for the results!

Apparently it was quite the party in that petri dish last night! We're supposed to get another call tomorrow to schedule a time for transfer on Monday, BUT the nurse said she is 99% sure that we'll be doing a day 5 transfer on Wednesday (which is ideal)! Super excited! Transfer is the last big step... can't believe we're almost there!

Current mood: Over the moon!
