Well not literally, but statistically, it sure feels like I have! Yesterday, my husband and I arrived at FCI hopeful, but fully prepared to receive the news that I had no normal embryos to transfer. As 70% of my eggs would create a chromosomal abnormality, having only 2 embryos to test wasn’t in our odds. However, God is good, and he shows us every time that he is great and what I can’t do, he can!
I was happily shocked to hear that I had a normal embryo!!! So yes, I had an embryo transfer yesterday morning. Now I’m required to be a couch potato and rest for the next two days. Writing this blog and letting the dog out are about as active as I’m allowed to get. I was told I must be a princess. My husband was even told he had to treat me like a princess…ha ha ha.
There’s more. Not only did I get a normal embryo, but that single lone embryo that we created from our IVF cycle this time has made it to blast. Not only did it make it to blast, but it started hatching on it’s own, grading it a 5BA. Wow. I’m calling it my warrior embryo. The chances of a single embryo surviving it to blast are so small. It’s amazing. They were able to biopsy that one and the freeze it. I should get the results tomorrow. We can’t transfer it, but that single embryo could be my next baby.
This tiny little ball of cells, that is really the size of a spec of dust, is making a baby. It blows me away.
Grow baby, grow!
