It's a Whole New TWW

Where to start...I guess with the good news. :) We have two embryos that looked great on Day 5 and their cells have been shipped off for the PGD testing. So now we are in a whole new type of TWW as we should have results back from the lab in about 2 weeks. Everyone seems really positive and happy that we have two that could be tested. There was a piece of J and I that really hoped we'd have 3. We had the good news on all 4 fertilizing so we both thought that maybe just maybe we'd get more good news with how many embies made it to Day 5. I am trying really hard to feel positive about this.

I think I am having a hard time because I am still stuck on the fact that we never received the phone call from the embryologist yesterday. I had been told to expect the call late morning...well, when 4pm rolled around and my phone had still not rung. (I made J call it at one point during the day to make sure it really was working!) I ended up leaving a voicemail at the message center for the on-call doctor. She called me back within 10 minutes with the news. This morning I missed a call from someone who works with the embryologist reiterating the same news and saying "Sorry for not calling yesterday; guess I got caught up in my day." I think I am glad I got it as a voicemail because I don't think I would have been overly pleasant on the phone. The stress from waiting for that call was miserable.

To end on a happy note J and I went to play mini-golf yesterday to celebrate our first date anniversary. Corny, but true. J found an indoor mini-golf place - it was glow in the dark Monster Golf. It was SO loud! We both left with headaches but definitely had a lot of fun letting go and having fun for the afternoon.

  1. Since you send off the cells for testing, does that mean you will freeze and transfer later? How exactly does that work?

    1. Yes, the embryos have been frozen. Really hoping that at least one of the two is considered healthy and we'll be able to transfer.

  2. I hope all goes well with the testing and that everything comes back looking great.

    I can understand that people who work at a fertility clinic might be swamped with work, but I think one of their main priorities should be remaining in regular contact with their patients. Treatments are stressful enough as it is without having to wait for updates.

    1. I agree! They know they are dealing with patients who's stress levels are already elevated - why add more stress?
