First off, I just want to profess my deep and undying love for my nurse, who called with the fertilization report at 10:45 this morning (as opposed to my previous cycle, when the call came at 5pm - though that was from my doctor, and it may well be that they needed more time that day to see how the two remaining eggs were developing). HUGE weight off my shoulders.
And, it was good news! Of the 10 eggs, 8 fertilized (we're using ICSI) and 7 are developing well. SEVEN! Last time, we only had two that got this far, so this is a big step in the right direction. They're holding off until tomorrow to decide between a 3 or 5-day transfer.
Seven is my new favorite number. Not that I'm going to go all George-Costanza on you and name my child 'Seven,' or anything, but still...it's a fun number to repeat. I'm just going to say it one more time: seven.
