The fertilization report!

I have spent the majority of today in bed, with our sweet puppies cuddling up to me, but I certainly got out of bed quickly when the embryologist called!  Or rather, as quickly as I could considering that I am still in a good amount of pain.   The embryologist had great news for us, 25 out of 29 eggs fertilized.  Those are such great numbers considering we were told to only expect 15-20 to fertilize!   In two days, the embryos will be taken out in order to change the culture media and at that point a final decision will be made as to whether we will be doing a three or five day transfer.   It will most likely be a five day, but we will just have to wait and see!
