Surprise, Surprise, Surprise.....

Well, if you haven't read my last post then go do that before you read this one....


Well, I sat around all day consoling myself for my inability to get anything right, and waiting to hear back from the IVF nurse. I was pretty damn resigned to the fact that this wasn't gonna be our cycle because of the more then shitty 2 day rescue ICSI stats, and strongly considering which of the bottles of liquor I was going to fervently attack when she called to tell me that none of the ICSI'd eggs did anything either. I actually got a call earlier this afternoon to tell me what time I was to come in for transfer on Thursday, and I politely told the nurse that I hadn't had any eggs fertilize, so there would be no transfer. Boy she was so apologetic, that I felt bad for her. I told her that we were doing the rescue attempt, and maybe that was why the nurse had left me on the schedule, you know just in case...

When the IVF Nurse finally called me back at 4:45 she literally blew me out of the water... apparently I have 4 embryo's who are starting out life just like their mommy... Late as hell for everything!!!!!! When they went to pull my eggs to ICSI them, 4 of them had gotten it together and actually fertilized!!! They decided to do the rescue on the other 11, and at the time that she called me 4 of them were starting to get going, and the other 7 were just hanging out. Go freaking figure!!! I spend the whole day coming to terms with my sorry ass luck only to have something bust that bubble to!!! Not that I am to freaking hurt that some of them finally decided to make me proud, now we just have to make it to Thursday for transfer!! I am just praying that there are 2 someones in heaven looking out for them and I will have at least 2 left by then!! So I guess I get to add Sluggish, Out To Give Mom Way To Much Stress Eggs to my DX list!!! :o)

Oh dear... I read your original post first and my heart just sank. Then the unbelievable second post! Better late than never, I suppose. And those embryos sound like survivors to me. Fingers crossed!

Okay I know you have transfered today, (Thurday) and I am having a hard time waiting for the phone call to find out how it went! At the time of your scheduled transfer, I said some heavy duty prayers.
Love ya,
