Still In It

The fertilization report came today (early this afternoon). One of the eggs was immature and one was mature. The mature one fertilized and it’s still growing, so I guess we’re still in it. Since we just have one little mass of cells growing, we’re going to do a 2 day transfer. OccDoc and I were completely prepared for the ‘Game over’ type of news, so the nurse had to repeat herself on the phone with me.

We still are very much not out of the woods yet, like we’ve just stepped into the woods with this news. But we’re just going to hope the embryo keeps growing and makes it to the transfer. One step at a time. Baby steps, hopefully. Thank you for all the positive vibes and prayers you’ve sent our way.

About Michelle

I'm Michelle, formerly the annoyed army wife. Join me as transition into the next phase of life:a husband in a white coat and tie instead of ACUs, a home of our own located anywhere we please (that needs a lot of work), and my life as a newish, somewhat crunchy mama. I'm, well, pessimistic about this next phase but with all the sarcasm and sass you've come to know and love.
