Transfer #9

Transfer Day today! Hopefully this cycle is the one. I am not feeling anxious but I am also not feeling optimistic. I guess that being a veteran takes the nerves out of the whole process. I think that the extra stuff that we have going on right now is distracting me from being too obsessive.

Anyhoo, here are the stats thus far:

11 eggs retrieved
9 eggs mature
8 fertilized
8 embryos on day three
1 10 cell
3 9 cells
1 eight cell
1 seven cell
3 six cell

2 embryos transferred today (one blast and one almost blast- I don't remember the specific term, it starts with a "M").

5 embryos will continue to culture the remainder of today with the possibility of freezing tomorrow if they make it to blast.

This last part is new for me - not sure what it means that 5 did not make it to blast by today. Is that good or bad? The Doc didn't say that it was a bad thing just that they needed a little bit more time to culture. He didn't seem concerned (but then again he never does).

So, I have been laying around today - sleeping through most of the day - thanks to my good friend Vitamin V (Valium).

Tomorrow starts the review of a pretty big project that I have had at work. I am prepared so I am not too worried about it; it will actually keep me busy this week so that I am not obsessing about symptoms.

Congrats to Serenity! She got her BFP yesterday and I am so excited for her.

Thoughts and prayers are with Lara and JJ for their upcoming betas! I am thinking about you girls.

I hope this cycle works! I'm praying, or crossing fingers, or both, for them to stick. And it does seem like quite a good number of embryos to have!
