embryos

The eggs were sufficiently wooed

There are 11 embryos in the lab. I know the number will go down, but at this stage, I'm very pleased.

Life wanting to flourish.

I stand in amazement.

(well, I'm technically sitting on a train bound for Montreal. My grand-papa is ill with cancer and we are heading there to see him and likely say goodbye. Life and death often sit side by side)

I'm LOVING your enthusiasm, women. Thank you for being excited for me ( us) and with me.

  1. Wasn't expecting to see an update so soon. Those are good numbers to start with. I hope they stay pretty high or at the very least with some excellent grades :) Wish you the best. Sorry to hear about your grandpa as well.

  5. So sorry about your grandfather. What a sad thing to deal with while also being excited for your embryos. I'm so happy for your 11 little embryos! I bet that your miracle baby is in that mix! That's a great number of embryos to work with, my friend.

  6. 11 embryos! I suppose it's too much to hope that all of them will be top notch, but I'll hope it anyway. That way you can have the eleventuplets you've always dreamed of... (Unmedicated, vaginal delivery, of course...)

    It's a wonderful place to be at this point, and I'm soooo thrilled. I'm sorry you've got death looking over the other shoulder. If it's his time, I hope it's as peaceful and loving as possible and that you guys get to say goodbye.

  7. So sorry about your grandpa, hope you're able to say goodbye & that he experiences a peaceful passing. You're right the end of one life is so often met with the beginning of another, hoping that is the case for your family.

    Fantastic news about the embryos, continuing to think of them and hope for an excellent number for transfer.

  8. Thinking of you as you say goodbye to your grandfather, and as you celebrate the 11 little possibilities waiting for you south of the 49th parallel.

    I love you, the family you come from, and the family you are building.
