I'm so excited! Tomorrow is the big day! I got a call from the embryologist this morning with a report on the embryos. Here is the latest: Batch 472 all made the thaw. The 5 cell 2B stayed the same (no cells lost), the 6 cell 2B went down to a 3 cell 2B, the 4 cell 2B stayed the same. This is the Italian/slovaic/Polish batch. Batch 334 the 4 cell 2B stayed the same and so did the 6 cell 2B. This is the Thai/Loatian batch. Batch 88 the single embryo did not make it. It went from a 5cell 2B to a 1 cell. This was the Chinese embryo and one that I REALLY was hoping to make the thaw. Batch 475 the 6 cell 2B remained the same. This is the English mix batch. Transfer is tomorrow at 9:45 EST and we need to be there by 9:15 with a full bladder (at least I need the full bladder that is).
Jenn and I spent the day today in New York City. We had fun trying to figure out how to drive the rental car which is a Hybrid Toyota Prius. It was an adventure to say the least! LOL. We drove up to Staten Island and took the ferry across to New York City. We than took the subway and went to Manhattan and visted the St. Patrick's Cathedral and light a couple of candles for our embryos. The cathedral was absolutely stunning! Lots of fine details. We than walked around and went to the shops. It rained off and on while we were there. We made our way to Broadway and saw where the Late Show with David Letterman is and saw where the play Mama Mia was playing. We weren't able to cross a street while we were there because they were filming a movie......"the other guy" with Will Ferrell, Duane Johnson "the rock" and Samuel Jackson. We ate some great food while we were in New York. Overall it's been a great trip down memory lane with Jenn and a very relaxing get away.
Say a little prayer that our remaining 6 embryos continue to thrive and grow and are ready for a full term pregnancy.
