Yep, you read that right ... Praise God!
All three eggs successfully fertilized and today we are the proud parents to three little zygotes (2PN status) ... and it gets better ... they have all developed just past that point and have released their second polar body. (Basically this means that they are further along in their development then they should be - which from all the research I've done, is much better news than worse news).
Our three little em-babies will be tucked safely away in their incubators until Saturday morning where we will get an update on their progress. We should have three nicely developing embryos to transfer on Saturday.
Berilac and I are beside ourselves with joy.
Last night, I sent a prayer request email to many friends and family (and many blog friends too) and the response was overwhelming - this journey really makes you feel isolated and today I feel surrounded ... so thank you for your prayers, your love, and your support.
Between now and Saturday we need to decide how many to transfer and tomorrow, since I won't have any embryo development news to share, I'll share our thoughts.
Thank you again for your overwhelming out pour of love.
And as a side note: it feels so nice to finally report good news - wow is it different. I hope this trend continues.
In a Nutshell.
