*19* Grade 1 Embryos

OMG!!!!!  The doc called us a little while ago and said today we have 19 Grade 1 embryos which she said were all A+   She said we have a 60-65% success rate if we transfer one and a 60-65% success rate if we transfer "2" but also a 50% chance of twins.... Finch and I talked and have decided to transfer 2 blastocysts.
We have not come this far after this long to risk only transferring one...that's our thoughts.   Doc said we would have several left to freeze so who knows what the future will bring with more babies :)

Transfer date has been set for Sunday, April 17th.
Acupuncture is scheduled at 11:15am prior to Transfer.
Transfer at 12:30pm.
Then Acupuncture again immediately after Transfer.
Bed rest for the next 24 hours.

This all feels surreal - we are so close to our dream.   Come on Sunday!
We just watched this couple from North Carolina that implanted 2 and have 2 sets of identical twins!!!! Um ....I don't know if we are prepared for all of that - one or two would be just perfect!

I have listened to the doc very well and don't have any symptoms of OHSS, thank you God.

We are waiting on a friend to come till our little flower and herb garden out back so we can work on redesigning it this spring....then we are off to dinner. I haven't felt like leaving the house since Tuesday so will be happy for a change of scenery.   Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Congratulations, ladies! I'm so glad this is working out for you!!! :) Just out of curiousity, which one of you is getting embryos transferred into you? I can't tell from the photos who is Finch and who is Wren.

  2. Wow that's amazing!!!!

  3. Amazing!!! I am sending you sticky vibes!!

  4. wow. that's really good news. good luck on sunday!

  5. 19??? Wow, that's more than just a football team. Good luck with all those embryos.

  6. Finch has dark brown hair and Wren has the blonde hair - Wren (that's me) will be carrying the baby/babies... I changed my hair back to its original color, dark brown with a hint of red) in March so now we are both brunettes :)
    Thanks for all the wishes - we are super excited for tomorrow!!!!

  7. Oh, congratulations! I'm so happy to hear that they are all looking great and that you'll have plenty for future sibs (if you want more after the twins!!!). :)
