day 2 update

We have embryos!

As of yesterday morning, all 5 fertilized eggs divided. When the clinic called me yesterday we had the following:

  • 1 5-cell embryo rated Good
  • 1 4-cell embryo rated Good
  • 1 4-cell embryo rated Fair
  • 1 3-cell embryo rated Fair
  • 1 2-cell embryo rated Poor

Both my husband and I were pretty emotional hearing this news. Those are actual embryos, actual potential people, and I don’t think either of us thought we would get this far.

Transfer is today. I will be back later with all the gory details … and maybe some embryo pictures.
