I just heard from the lab with the latest update on my embryos.
one with 14 cells (this one is looking like the transfer front runner at the moment)
two with 12 cells
one with 8 cells
one with 5 cells (it had 5 cells yesterday also...boo hoo)
Additionally, they froze three more:
one with 14 cells
two with 9 cells
I asked why they didn't freeze one of the 12 cell embryos and leave out the 14 cell embryo. The lab technician said that the 14 cell embryo that they froze wasn't "as nice" as the 12 cell embryo. I guess I'll take her word for it. She said that all the embryos look really good (even that slow little 5 cell guy), with nice even cells and no fragmentation. She implied we should count ourselves lucky; which I most certainly do. Indeed.
Transfer was reconfirmed for Friday at 9:45am. I will not hear from the lab tomorrow, which is probably a good thing. I spend most of the day working myself into an anxious lather waiting for these embryo updates. I swear this process makes me feel crazier than Britney.
Tomorrow, I must finish the laundry and go on a gathering mission to round up all my post-transfer requirements, as I plan to lay as flat as possible, for as long as possible. I'm thinking movies, trashy magazines, books, etc. Maybe I'll even pull out the old knitting needles...
I think I'm starting to get excited.
