Did the transfer today. And for some reason, I don't have a whole lot to say about it.
We transferred 2 embryos and the embryologist said they looked as good as they could possibly look. They were exactly what you want to see. Yay!
Here are my current embryo numbers -
1 frozen from the last attempt
1 frozen from this attempt
2 transferred and currently swimming around looking for something to grab onto
2 that look awesome and will likely freeze tomorrow
4 that are 50/50 at the moment. They could be totally awesome tomorrow for freeze, or they might go south, there's simply no predicting.
1 that's still alive but will most likely be discarded.
So out of the 10 mature eggs that we got, I still have 10 embryos! And there's every chance that as many of 9 of them will look good enough to try to become babies at some point.
Cross your fingers that 6 more make it to freeze tomorrow. I want as many attempts in the bank as possible because I never want to do this again and I never want to worry that if I had tried harder, more attempts, maybe the outcome would have been different.
If I have 2 inside me, and 8 Maybies on ice, then it would take me a solid year or two of trying before I used all of them up. By then I would be 38 and I could walk away. If I can't create children from ages 34-38 with perfect embryos and every chance of it happening on my side, it will be pointless to try this again between the ages of 38-40.
Ok, now we wait for the GO so we can start jumping some hurdles on the way to the finish line.
PS - I'll post the embryo picture, but I think it's in K's pocket and he's grocery shopping.
