Houston, We Have Embryo's...
We were called back at 8:45 by an embryologist I had never met before. She brought us back, C signed some paperwork and showed proof it was him. I mentioned that we had twins from rescue ICSI, and she paused for a minute and asked, "were they Christmas rescue ICSI?" I responded "YES!" She replied, "I heard about you guys!" Awwwww... more proof that my twins are such Christmas miracles! They are an amazing story!
Anyway, we went back to this tiny little room where I helped out my hubby a bit. I figure, as least we get to do this part together! There is no way, he would do that by himself. I was really impressed with his sample, I think it was the most ever! The last three or four months, he has really been cleaning up his diet, taking extra supplements, and working out again. It must have helped!
I was told we would get a fertilization report this morning, but when I woke up I saw that I missed a call from them at 6:30 last night! My heart was pounding when I went to listen to the voicemail! Was she going to tell me all my eggs didn't make the thaw? Or only a few? ahhhhh.... It was good news! Out of the 27 eggs, 22 made the thaw, five died, but 22 made it and were ICSI'd!!!! Praise Jesus! I told Chris it was such a good thing we did all of them because originally he only wanted to do ten and then we would have potentially only had five!
I got my second call from them at 9:30am. More good news! Out of my 22 ICSI'd eggs, 22 fertilized! Praise Jesus again! We have 22 growing embryo's!!!!!!!
Today is day one, day three they will preform assisted hatching, day five, Saturday, I will get a call on how many make it to blastocyst and which ones they will biopsy for PGS! Day six, Sunday, I will get another call to see if I have any six day blastocysts to biopsy. This is so nerve wracking and exciting all at the same time!
Grow embryo's GROW!!!!! Please pray pray pray!!!!
