Two Guys Vs Ten Days (Take II)

Well, here we are again. The ten day wait.

Last night was day 5 / embryo transfer and right now we’re feeling a mix of excitement, anxiety and unfortunately, slight disappointment. This time around, there were ten eggs fertilized…out of those, 5 made it to day 3…and out of those only 2 good embryos and 1 with a vacuole were left on day 5. We were really hoping for a better outcome this time with the fertilization process, but it just wasn’t to be. 

But, we’re of course also very excited. We're sending out lots of positive energy to the universe, and we all know it only takes one good embryo to make a baby. The surrogate had a great lining, and it sounds like the transfer went smoothly. They transferred 2 embryos; one good and one with the vacuole. And, the other will be frozen, so at least we have a bit of a safety net. 

Now all we have to do is wait. We should hear whether or not we’re pregnant on the same day that we close on the house and get the keys. So hopefully it will be a great day. (If not…at least I’ll have pent up aggression to take out on the house that weekend when we break down some walls!)

Fingers crossed!
