I have been carrying around my phone all morning to assure myself that I wouldn't miss the call from the lab. But of course I step away for just one minute to grab some bathroom cleaner from the closet and miss the phone ringing. It was them! The embryologist left a long message with the following details.
Today would put our embryos at Day 3. They want to see embryos grow by now to somewhere between 5 and 10 cells. Three of our four are already at around 8 or 9 cells! Way to go, little ones!
The fifth blastocyst is still waiting in the wings ready to be thawed on Monday if for some reason we don't get two beautiful embryos from the four.
We will be arriving at the clinic on Monday, Feb 11 at 9:30am CST for a 10:00am transfer. I could use any and all prayers you have that you have for us. God has clearly heard our prayers for bringing us this far. I am still in awe that we are here after enduring so much pain in recent years.
After listening to the embryologist's voicemail, Kevin and I shared a big hug. We are filled with hope and can't believe we are just over a day away from meeting these little ones!
My next update should be after the transfer! Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm if you're fighting off some snow.
I'm in love with a little snow....five snowflakes, to be specific. :)
