No, not all 40 eggs that were retrieved were fertilized. Just 32. :)
I had the hugest smile on my face when my doctor called to tell me the good news. When I've read things online about other people going through IVF, it looks like the average eggs retrieved is about 12-15. I can't believe that we had 40, and now 32 that are actually possible kids.
The plan now is to grow them until Saturday, and then re-check them to see which ones are the best. Even if only half of them made it to freezing, we'd still have 16. And that is completely amazing. I'm feeling a ton better today after a really rough night, so things are really looking up.
We also got amazing news that Mr. Bee has a 2nd interview for a job he really, really wants, and just got the call today, so our day has been filled with good news. Nothing is set in stone (on either front), but just to know we're finally going in the right direction is making life so much easier.
Things are crazy and good. We talked about how much we've been blessed. Even a week ago we had no idea that our life would be where it is today. I've been trying to trust in God's timing and path for us, and it looks like it really is always perfect.
