Reports from the petri dish: Fertilization

Of the 12 eggs that were retrieved, 10 were mature. And of those, 8 fertilized without ICSI (Way to go, Will's little swimmers!).

Usually at my clinic they require a minimum of 10 embryos to consider a 5-day transfer, but the nurse who called today said that my RE wants to try to push us to day 5. She said to keep both Wednesday and Friday afternoons free. The clinic will call Wednesday morning to let us know whether the transfer will be later that day or Friday.

Feeling much better today physically and optimistic about how things are looking. We shall see what Wednesday's news brings.

Thank you for all of your comments and thoughts.

That's a terrific report! I agree with your RE. You already have some on ice. Going to blast will get you the strongest ones.

This is a fantastic report. Proof positive that your concerns a few posts back were all for naught . You really do have life and love in the petri dish right now. Hopfully after 4 more days it will become life and love in the womb.
