Just got the call after a loooong day of waiting!!!!!
- 7 embryos biopsied and frozen on Day 5
- 2 embryos biopsied and frozen on Day 6
NINE embryos made it to the day 5/6 finish line as blastocysts and all are tucked safe and sound in their freezer! I have the grading worksheet and Lili says 6 are “amazing” and 3 are “good.” As mentioned before, the grading doesn’t reflect normal vs. abnormal, so we take it with a grain of salt anyway. But it can’t hurt that they’re good looking. 🙂
Biopsies go out for genetic testing tomorrow, and Lili will call me with those results by the end of next week.
Now I get a break–no news, no injections, no decisions, no stress, no phone calls, no appointments. Still recovering and tired from the retrieval (and the stress) but once I’m 100% things are going to get back to normal around here!
So happy and grateful and excited for all of this and feeling like those 9 embies are the beautiful fruits of our labor: me, McPiercy, UCSF, and my wonderful support team: you.
Hopeful that one of those is my little person-to-be.

9…I wonder which one its going to be?
9 feels like a very good number… so excited for you, Red—for your future wee one and for your well deserved break. Enjoy those cocktails. 🙂
NINE: You could field a baseball team! ❤
