IVF #2, Three Little Embryos

Now if I remember correctly, the embryo on the top left is the star student. It had so many cells that it's beginning to compact and the embryologist said that was very good.

The embryo on the right was also considered to be a goody with six to eight cells.

The embryo on the bottom was the late bloomer. It started as one of the immature eggs and was fertilized a day later than it's siblings.

They are all precious to me.

I have a new friend my same age who is just a few weeks ahead of me in the IVF process. She only had one embryo to transfer, but she is pregnant with great beta numbers. Her outcome has given me great hope for these little guys.

Thank you for all the comments and emails, and for surrounding me with your loving thoughts and prayers. From our lips to God's ear, as they say.


  1. Good news once again! I will keep sending positive vibes and thoughts out into the universe for you :-)

  2. What a beautiful miracle this will be...


  3. Johanna, they look great. Very symmetrical with very little fragmentation.

    You should be VERY hopeful indeed.

    Take it easy, distract yourself, and take the 2WW one day at a time.

  4. Did you transfer all three? I'm thinking very very sticky thoughts, my friend!
