Well, it hurts a bit, but I'm doing cartwheels! The clinic finally called me, and of the 11 eggs they retrieved yesterday, 8 were mature, and of those 7 fertilized *dances a little jig*

As of right now I have 7 little embryos growing! This means that I am a candidate for a Day-5 transfer rather than Day-3. As long as at least 5 embryos survive they will attempt a blastocyst transfer. If they aren't doing well in the dish, they will transfer on Saturday.

All afternoon I'd been having the worst feeling that none of the eggs were fertilized, what a huge relief! I haven't been that great at getting back to your comments, but I do want to let you all know that I really appreciate your support and good wishes.

I do have other stuff to update on, but I'm a bit of distracto girl at the moment *g*
Who does she think she is?

Thanks. The numbers were good. For my age, my clinic will only put a max of 2 embryos in at one time (a younger woman can select a transfer of 3). They will only transfer the same number of embryos as children that you could reasonably care for at the same time.

We would freeze the rest, to either try again later or to donate to another infertile couple.

Oh that is terrific news!!! They will do great in the dish...don't go worrying. Just keep thinking positive thoughts and we will keep up our prayers and others will continue keeping their fingers crossed-either way...we are all cheering on those little embryos.

At this point-who can blame you for not getting back to each and everyone of our comments. You got alot of friends, but we all understand how tired you must be and on the emotional rollercoaster you are on at the moment. Just relax and breath and get your body ready for them little embryos.

A little distracted, huh? Of course you were, and if you weren't I'd be concerned.

Yay!!!! *does a happy dance with Mr. Ed for you!!!!*

Relax. When you feel like posting other stuff, you will. Till then you are in our thoughts and prayers with fingers crossed and incense burning and stuff. ;)

If I recall from my "Fertility for Dummies", blastocysts have a higher probablility of implantation, right? *squee*...hoping hoping hoping good happy "grow baby grow" thoughts for your happy little embryos!!!!

Yep, the theory is that a Day 3 embryo is usually still in the fallopian tubes and not yet hatched, where a Day 5 is more prepared to implant in the uterine lining. Thanks for the good thoughts
