Ever since the retrieval, my mind was constantly thinking about what the eggs were doing. Were they fertilized already? How many fertilized? It’s pure torture to think of these types of questions but you can’t help what your brain thinks.
I get to work this morning. I can’t recall if the last time they called in the morning or afternoon. Usually they called in the afternoon for blood work results but I thought they called earlier to give egg status updates. I watch the clock all morning.
Around 11am I email my nurse to ask her if the status calls are usually in the morning or afternoon. No response. So I decided to run to the ladies room (since I’ve been holding it all morning waiting for this call). When I returned, I saw that I missed her call. Damn!
She calls me back and says she has some good news – ALL FOUR FERTILIZED!
Wow, the whole morning I was thinking that maybe non fertilized and that’s why they hadn’t called. All four! Next big step is tomorrow’s call to see which ones continued to divide. Maybe two? They are hoping to tell me if I have a day-3 or a day-5 transfer, so either Saturday or Monday. Let’s hope this time I actually get to that stage since last time they stopped dividing.
