Embryo Update

So after waiting all day for an update, I finally broke down and called C.CRM for the report.  They hadn't frozen my embryos yet which was why they hadn't called me yet.

But the very nice person on the other end of the phone gave me some information:
1) The embryo they thought was questionable (ie, didn't fertilize normally) did not cleave, so it is definitely out of the running
2) The other two embryos seem to be developing well - one is a 10-cell, grade 3+ and the other is a 12-cell, grade 4-

They are about to freeze the embryos and then comes the long wait for results.

I am happy that at least the two I have seem to be coming along - and I am praying so hard that one of them turns out to be the one!!!

We are leaving on a 2 week trip to India in a couple of weeks.  I am SO glad, because it will be a great distraction while we wait for results.  Not to mention the fact that the trip itself should be amazing - we are flying into Mumbai and then travelling around Kerala, in the south of India.  We will be going with some great friends of ours who live there and who planned the whole thing for us - cannot wait.

Thanks to everyone for the amazing comments and support - I do not know what I would do without you guys!!

  9. Oh! I've always wanted to travel India for pleasure. I've gone a couple of times for business, but never had a chance to really do any sightseeing. I hope you have a great time!

    I'm so glad to hear that your time embryos are doing well!! I'm keeping all my fingers crossed that at least one (hopefully, both) are normal!
