Lilypie Second Birthday tickers

More good news today

We had a call from the Doctor this morning (and an email from my nurse - Thanks Jackie!!) to say that from the 16 eggs that that collected - 13 of them were mature (which means 3 weren't ready anyway) and of the 13 - 10 of them fertilised!!

We won't know much more until tomorrow, but 10 is a great number as it means we will have a few to choose from.

We aren't sure yet if the transfer will be a 3 day or a 5 day, again I hope to know more tomorrow, so it will either be Thursday or Saturday.

A 5 day means they will have more time to see which ones go to blastocyst, but in the past in the UK we have done 3 day and had more success - so I'm not sure which way it will go this time. I really hope that this one works for us as it has cost quite a lot of money, and we are now just about broke! So if this doesn't work - we don't know when we will be able to afford to come back and try again.

I was 35 in May - this means my eggs will decrease in quality with every year that passes now - so this has to work!

A big thank you to everyone who has posted on Facebook, commented here and sent me emails to offer congratulations - it means a lot to us to know we have friends and family that are behind us and wishing us all the best.

This has been a tough ride for us both, this time in particular as the injections were 5 a day which is way more than in the past, and I hate to be away from Chris (although he's here now!).

Also a HUGE thank you to Pat and Walt who totally look after us while we are here - and even lend us their car! we are so grateful.

And to my dad who is looking after the cats this time - Squeaker and Rasher are already learning how to get their own way!
