In a dish down the street . . .
there are 16 eggs fertilized and growing! I got my fertilization report today (I wrote this last Tuesday). We started out with 18 eggs, 1 of which was not mature enough. Of the 17 remaining, 16 fertilized!!!! Those are some good odds! They used ICSI (where they put the sperm into the egg with a microscopic needle) on 9 of the eggs, and let the remaining 8 fertilize naturally. Eight out of the 9 ICSI eggs fertilized, and 8 out of 8 fertilized naturally!
Now we wait for tomorrow to find out how they're progressing! We could either have a transfer on Thursday (2/11) or on Saturday (2/13). I'm hoping for Saturday so I don't have to miss anymore work!
