I finally got the call from the RE’s office at like 3pm. I didn’t get a damned thing done all day because I was preoccupied and worried.
The nurse reminded me that 10 eggs were retrieved, that 6 were mature and ALL 6 FERTILIZED! Woot!
I know that 6 isn’t incredible, but after finding out how many follicles had no eggs, I was terrified they would only find 2 mature and have none that fertilized or some other really difficult news along those lines. The nurse gave me the rest of my instructions for the day and when to show up for day 3 transfer (Wednesday at 2:30 p.m.). They would call me at 10:30 a.m. that same day and let me know if there were any problems or if things were looking like a day 5 transfer. She also asked me if I wanted to do acupuncture before and after the transfer. I really don’t know whether I should try the acupuncture. Any opinions?
I called MrBeep at work and gave him the good news 6 outta 6. He was very happy and said, “See, you didn’t need to get so upset, it’s working along. These are good numbers.” I agreed, but told him the why I had some of my worries and he understood. He did keep me down to earth and reminded me that it still may not work out, but that we continuing to work on our goal and that we’ll try again if necessary. I love that MrBeep.
I wish our eggies (now embies) are cooking happily away a few miles from home. We’ll be back to pick you up soon. Oh, and JJ - I wore my tangerine dream earrings, but didn’t get a picture. I also wore my heart shaped locket my Gramma gave me on my wedding day. It has a picture of her and Grampa. He gave it to her when they were dating, over 60 years ago. I’ll wear them both again on Wednesday.
So I today I am very happy with the number 6. As a tribute, I give you this little tidbit:
