Later in the afternoon they called to tell me, of the three eggs they didn't try to fertilize, how many were mature and they were going to freeze. Turns out 5 of them were mature and are being frozen. This number actually made me a little nervous since we were told that none of the little ones might be good which is why we did three to try and fertilize - but all we could do now was wait and see. I don't think I slept at all last night. I had the most vivid dreams of all the possible outcomes of the ones they were trying to fertilize. We knew it took about 14 hours for fertilization to take place and they would call us before 8am this morning to tell us how many of the three fertilized. 7:45 this morning the phone rang and I think I gave myself whiplash getting up to answer it. Two of our eggs fertilized!!!!
Now there are only a couple of more things to pray for - one, that the two eggs that fertilized continue to divide and grow properly and that at least one of them implants after tomorrow mornings transfer. Then the waiting game really starts. I'm pumped up with so many pregnancy hormones at the moment, I can't take my pregnancy test until 2 weeks after the transfer. I feel a very clean house and a lot of sewing being done over the next two weeks to make time fly.
I keep reminding myself, God never gives a cross to bear larger than we can carry.
