How many embryos do we have?

I was lying in bed this morning, when my phone rang.  The embryology lab. was calling. me.

She told me that out of the 8 eggs retrieved, only 2 were mature.  Only one egg fertilized with the ICSI.  He/she is currently 2-cells.

What??

BUT!

She then went on to say that three more matured since then, so they did ICSI on those yesterday.  They are growing a day behind, but they are still growing.   I will get another report Wednesday and we will possibly do a 5-day transfer on Thursday, or they will wait another day to see how the other three are growing.

We have four.

My four babies.  This is unreal.  I can’t believe this is happening.  Chris and I need prayers/ tiki dances/ happy thoughts that these little ones continue to grow.

Holy shit.

Praying for all the little embies, and especially for the slower ones to catch up. We also had a delayed ICSI (what I call DICSI!) for one of our cycles. Hoping for good news!

It's definitely been a roller-coaster. It seems like there is always something. But at least I have my four embies to focus on. Getting them here was half the battle.

Thanks! It is a strange thing, to know three of your four are a day behind. Makes me wonder if I will end up with a 5 day transfer, or if it will be longer.
