Eight is GREAT!

I just got off the phone with the nurse and here's my update:

We harvested 16 eggs.

4 were too immature.

They fertilized 12 eggs.

We have EIGHT embryos!!!

She asked to make sure I was taking it easy and keeping my fluids up, I told her I was. I didn't get out of bed until almost 11 with the exception to take my meds and eat a piece of pumpkin bread to wash them down. After lunch, I moved to my comfy computer chair and haven't moved much except to get the mail and bring up the trash can (don't worry-it's on wheels so there was no jostling!).

I'm supposed to be weighing myself so I don't hyperstimulate. I planned on doing that at work but I'm off today. The only place I can think of is the vet, hmm...

I called DH with the report and he was super excited. When I was about to hang up with the nurse I said, "That's a good report, right?" and she said, it was "an awesome report!" When I told DH that she said that, I could hear the smile in his voice.

I'm thinking we'll probably have a day 3 transfer. They said if we had two good embryos and the rest were so-so, we'd go ahead and transfer day 3. If they all looked great, we'd wait until Friday. She also said that they did more day 3 to reduce the chance of multiples.

I'm really REALLY happy and excited right now but I'm trying not to get too wound up. Have I ever mentioned that 8 is my favorite number???

Another great status report!!! I am so happy everything is moving along so nicely. It's nice when things just "work out" especially after all that we have been through. xpxpxpx
