First fertilization report

Just got a phone call from Mike (the embryologist) and one of the nurses.  Of the 28 eggs that were retrieved yesterday, 25 were mature.  And 23 fertilized.  He said we are over-acheivers  - I guess the numbers don't usually look quite this good.  He said with that many to work with, we are almost definitely looking at a 5 day transfer which will be Sunday.

We have 23 babies growing right now.  That's just a little surreal.  Not all of them will make it.  Mike said he would call us tomorrow to let us know how many had passed on and how many were still growing.  But having so many to work with definitely increases our odds to have 2 excellent ones to transfer on Sunday.  Grow, babies, grow!!
