We have officially commenced the two-week wait. The clock started Monday after the egg retrieval when our eggs were fertilized. If you’re a gory detail type, read on. If you’re not, skip this post and try again tomorrow. Monday, they retrieved 13 eggs, which is a good number – not too many, not too few… A nice baker’s dozen. The process wasn’t too bad, although it’s painful, and I’m still sore. Of the 13 eggs, 8 were able to be fertilized and 7 developed to embryo stage. Embryo transfer will be Thursday (tomorrow) morning. The next big milestone after embryo transfer is the pregnancy test, which will be April 16 unless something in the schedule changes tomorrow.
In the meantime, I have enough to occupy my mind this week with Journey to the Cross. (If you live in the Birmingham area, check out http://www.gvbc.org for more information.) And next week, I’ll be trying to catch up with all the work I’ve missed this week. The first two-week wait should be a breeze. 😉
