This is going to be really short and to the point. I didn't sleep well last night tossing and turning thinking about all the things I should get done before I'm on bed rest for 2 days. However, I am very much looking forward to spending those 2 days not feeling guilty about laying around on the couch and not getting up to help anyone. It is going to be lovely.
On with the news. I received a message from the intended mother yesterday (Sunday) saying that they had retrieved 12 eggs and 10 were mature. All 10 of those fertilized and were looking strong so we have our transfer date...Thursday January 22nd. Doesn't that sound like a good day to get pregnant? I think so. This means, Thursday morning they pick the 2 very best embryos to implant and freeze the other 8 (assuming all 10 make it to Thursday).
So, for those of you who pray, please pray for us that this will finally be the time that works. The intended parents have traveled quite a long, emotionally draining road to get here and I would love the opportunity to help make them a family. Thank you friends! Now, come on Thursday.
