So far, so good

Of the 6 retrieved, all 6 were mature. Of them, 5 fertilized normally yesterday. As of today, all 5 are chugging along. Wahoo!

I was crazy nervous because they didn't call me this morning. We went out running errands around 9am and just got home (1pm). All the nurses know to call my cell phone for updates, so when it was after noon and no one had called, I was praying that they just screwed up and called my home phone.

Turns out, that's what they did. For the first time ever, Dr. Chat himself called me with the update. Usually it's a nurse or the embryologist or someone, but I guess since Dr. Chat did the retrieval himself, he wanted to call with the update himself. Very nice of him.

Now I just wait on pins and needles to hear Erin's report!
