The results are in

I've been pretty much on tenderhooks today waiting for my cell phone to ring. You see, before we left the clinic yesterday I'd specifically asked them to make a note in our file to use my cell for any calls that had to be made. We'd also been told that if we hadn't heard by 2pm to call into the office because they may not make the calls before noon due to monitoring appointments.

So, 1:30 rolls around and I decide to call home to check the machine there. What do you know, we got a call at 10am!!! We had only left the house this morning at about 9:40 so just missed it. (I called the clinic back and asked them to please make a note to call my cell for tomorrow.)

In any case, and keep in mind that we are sharing our donor with another recipient couple so we are splitting the eggs that were retrieved, we got:

6 eggs retrieved
6 eggs fertilized!!!!

We got a 100% fertilization rate! My hubby has Super Determined Sperm!!!

I have to say I'm over the moon with this, well we are of course. My biggest fear, as many of you can attest, was to be told that either none had fertilized, or only a couple did and we could have nothing to freeze. Granted we're not quite there yet, but the message also stated that we had six beautiful embryos, so I can only think positively that these are going to be graded well tomorrow.

So, depending on how they fare, we will find out tomorrow when I get the call to say what time transfer will be on Saturday. We will be transferring two embryos and freezing whatever is left.

Will advise tomorrow about transfer.

You know how I feel about all of this. I think it was clear in my text message yesterday, but just in case the message didn't get across....
