Day 3 Update!

Dinner at the Bellagio for our Anniversary!
Sorry for not updating sooner!  We got the call on Thursday, our 4th anniversary, that all 8 of our little eggies fertilized!  Needless to say it was a fabulous anniversary! 
Nurse SS said she and Dr. SS were really pleased because they usually only expect 70% to fertilize properly.  So we defied the odds!
We had to survive two days with no updates which was TORTURE…
They called us this afternoon to tell us that our embies are doing great!  All 8 embryos are still alive and kickin’ we have 3 – 8 Cells, 3 – 7 cells, 1 - 5 cell, and 1 – 4 cell.  They hope for them to be between 6 and 8 cells at day 3 so 6 embies are right on track.  They don’t expect the two little guys to make it but we’ll keep praying for them.
For now embryo transfer is scheduled for Monday at 11:45, but they’ll call us Monday morning if they haven’t made it to expanded blast stage and we’ll delay transfer to Tuesday morning. 
I’ll write a post tomorrow about feelings and such, but for now I’m just happy they’re all still alive!
