We have had the call!

I have just got off the phone with my consultant and he called to say that ALL 12 of our eggs have fertilised!!! 100% is brilliant as they usually tell you to expect an average of 60% so we were hoping for 8 - to get all 12 is just amazing.

I will get another call tomorrow that will be an update on the number of cells - so lets keep everything crossed that these embryos are all good quality as we are planning on taking them to the blastocyst stage - which is a 5 day transfer instead of the usual 3 day which I'm used to. This is a good thing as it will allow the clinic to see which ones are developing to be the strongest - and also at the blast stage they are more ready to implant so it increases the chances of things working.

We are thrilled.

Now I have to deal with my progesterone injections up until pregnancy test day - these are intramuscular with the BIG needle, one a day (argh!) but it's OK, everything is going so well I'm just going to do as I'm told!!!
