OK, well I got the call today that out of the 26 eggs they retrieved ...
(human egg - Not mine)
they fertilized 19 (with ICSI shown below) ...
(ICSI = Intracytoplasmic sperm injection, pronounced "ICK-see")
Out of those 19 eggs, 13 of them took! (Meaning actually fertilized.)
It is very weird to think that Mikel & I have 13 "babies" in a petri dish in Seattle! (So very, very, very weird!)
(Still not an actual picture of "our" petri dish or embryos)
Now we wait to see which ones continue to divide properly and we transfer 1-2 of them on either Wednesday or Saturday. I am EXCITED! Wish us luck.
