Phase 2, fertilization:???

(The picture to the left is an actual
being fertilized via ICSI)

So, I got a call this morning from one of the IVF nurses. Yesterday the nurse had said that about half the eggs would fertilize; today we were informed that 7 out 8 eggs fertilized! I am elated. ICSI was definitely the route for us! We are now scheduled for the embryo transfer on Sunday morning. We have to be there at 8:15 so we should be undergoing the transfer around 8:45. We won't know until Sunday morning how many embryos survived the weekend and of what quality they are; that will determine the number of embryos they put back into my uterus. While I think it is up for discussion, it is likely that the doc will put 2 back in considering my age and their desire to keep multiples at a minimum. Brad and I are all about twins, buy one get one free! LOL!

will do you no good unless you act on it.
People who want milk shouldn't sit on a stool
in the middle of a field in hopes
that a cow will back up to them.
