The Embryo Report

posted by Mel

Of the 10 eggs, 5 were mature and got ICSI’d yesterday. 4 fertilized normally. 1 bit the dust. The other 5 were immature but close enough that the embryologist put them in some kind of maturing medium (I didn’t know they could mature eggs outside of the body– wild!!), and they were mature for ICSI this morning. We’ll get another report on those tomorrow. Tentative transfer scheduled for Tuesday at 1 PM.

We could have up to 9, people. I will believe it when I see it, but for now I am very very happy. Vanessa is happy too. Also, she would like me to stop hugging her.

    It is pretty wild that they can mature eggs outside the ovaries.

    Four embryos off to a good start–excellent. And maybe some more later on. I will keep fingers crossed for you.

  2. Great news! So excited and happy for you.

    Fantastic. How amazing that they can mature eggs outside of the body. Well I never! Does that mean that technically, some of your embryos will be older than the others? I suppose it does. I’m SOOO stoked for you two.
