We Broke the Yolk!

I'm still in shock but here is the report:

7 eggs retrieved

6 mature!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3 fertilized normally

Egg transfer is set for Sunday pending that we still have eggs by then (and I really pray we do!)

This was the part that I was most worried about. With Hammer's family history of super crappy sperm and questionable lab results we had no idea what we would be up against. I am just so thankful that any of them fertilized that I am shaking with happiness. This was the part I was afraid would go wrong (never did I expect that I wouldn't have enough follicles). But it has made me even more thankful for each step forward that we are taking in this process. I don't know how I'm ever going to focus on work now (yes I'm back to work today), or get through the next few days up until transfer.

Grow babies grow!!!!

Woohoo!!! I pray that at least one of those eggs is the one that God is going to use to bring about your answer to prayer. Just think: your future child may already be starting to form right now! Praying for you guys!

That is great news! I always thought getting from fertilization to transfer would be the dangerous part for us, but all stuck around for us. I hope all three of your stick around for you too. Hang in there- I know it is a long wait, but Sunday will be here soon.
