12 eggs were retrieved. 10 fertilized. Thats amazing news.
We have to wait until Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning for the exact total that made it through to day 5 and then they'll send whatever made it to the lab for HD testing.
We were thrilled to have 12. Thrilled to have 10 fertilize. And then yesterday when I got the news, I had to wait all afternoon to tell Rodney, and when I did, he was super thrilled.
After talking to my older sister Betsey and giving her the breakdown of how our week went in Vegas, she said I have the perfect makings for a short story. About going to Vegas to make a baby, and how its a complete gamble. People go to Vegas to gamble every single day of the year. And we just spent another week there gambling to create a family.
Its so true. We have a 50/50 chance of each embryo having HD. I know Vegas odds are not normally in your favor, but there are winners. I heard the machines pinging out loud. I saw people winning at the craps table. It does happen. And hopefully we will be a part of the "lucky ones".
