Come On Embryos!

The waiting game is probably the worst. It's exciting, but nerve-wracking. We knew we'd get a phone call at about 11am from an embryologist to give us an update, and up until 11, no one said much. We were just waiting for the sound of the phone. And then it rang. We got the great news, 4 of the 5 eggs had fertilized. Each day we'd get a call to update us on the progress. On day 2, things were still looking good. Day 3 we got more encouraging news. Things were still progressing. At that point, there were 2 options, transfer the embryos now, or wait 2 more days until they grow even more (which is preferred). YAY! The doctor felt we could wait…

Day 4 was uneventful because they didn't call us with an update. I guess they can't tell much on that day.
