First Fertilization Report

OK, things are looking good... Got the call @ 9:30 this AM

24 Retrieved

7 mature @ retrieval, ICSI'd and developing right on track

12 immature, but matured in the afternoon

12 ICSI'd

2 Fertilized abnormally and were discarded

10 Still developing from that group.

All in all we have 17 embryo's growing.

All I can say is WOW. I guess the switch up in meds, the DHEA, and the CoQ-10 did the trick!!! I am looking so forward to Saturday now. We are also doing assisted hatching this time, so that will be another feather in our cap so to speak. I am so happy!!

I leave you with this: We took Turtle to the Zoo on Sunday, and she had a freaking ball!!!

Of course her Mascots were out getting fed en mass:

Have a beautiful day sweet Internets!!!

That is awesome! :)

And Turtle is so cute. :) We are planning on taking C to the zoo soon. I haven't been and we've lived her for 4 years.
