Transfer – 4 days!
Embaby Status:Day 0: 9 eggs aspirated
Day 1: 5 embabies with 2 pro-nuclei and 1 embaby with 1 pro-nucleus
Mary Kathryn just called. We have 5 embabies with 2 pro-nuclei and 1 embaby with 1 pro-nucleus. That's good news. It means we have a possibility of having 6 embabies (embryos) on Monday. They have to develop 2 pro-nuclei in order to be considered viable. One of the eggs was too immature to fertilize, and the other 2 just didn’t fertilize. Like I said in my earlier post, it’s normal. This is a great report for day 1!
Tomorrow, we will be looking for cell division to occur.
God is good, and so are these doctors!!
UPDATE:I know it seems a little confusing. I just wanted to put a site on here that really helps with all of this information…especially for my mom that likes research as much as I do: http://www.ivf.net/ivf/embryo-development-o2591.html. Our embabies are at the 2PN (2 pronuclei) stage. Five of them look like this:

What other questions has my blog made you ask? I want to make sure I have all of the details on here. J
