IVF-day 26-daily report

The nurses called with our daily report; the embryos look really strong. They all made it through the night and she looked at them at 6:00 this morning.

We have:
2 - 6 cell
3 - 4 cell
3 - 3 cell

"Embryos should be at 2 to 4 cells at 48 hours after egg retrieval and preferably about 7 to 10 cells by 72 hours. The cells in an embryo are also refered to as "blastomeres"."

They look strong to go to a day 5 transfer so we go in Monday morning!

For those of you who told me the POI shots are nothing to worry about, lied. There is something to worry about when an inch long needle is going into your bum. It hurts. There is no way around it. The Captain doesn't seem at all phased by what he is doing to me, that is a little worrisome. His pep talk is "keep your eyes on the prize". My eyes are on the prize all right and on your hand with that giant needle in it. 

Someone or something is pregnant in our household at the moment and it isn't me. One of our fish has a mouth full of babies she is getting ready to release. We discovered this last night when we saw that she wouldn't eat anything and kept all the other fish away from her. I think I am a little jealous of this fish. She got knocked up so easily. That can't be normal, can it? Being jealous of a fish? Once she spits the babies we will try to save as many as we can before they get eaten and put them in our pond out back.

2 lovely notes from friends:

Great report! Keep growing embabies!

haha. Sorry I didn't mean to lie ... I should have said they aren't as bad as I thought they'd be.
I stand up leaning over a chair, on one leg, the opposite of the leg that is getting the shot that way the muscle isn't contracted. Warm the area before, warm the injection in a bag in warm water or with the heating pad and then warm afterwards. I also heard that if you lay on your stomach, it doesn't hurt as bad either.
