T Minus 24 Hours

Our embryo transfer is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon! Whoa… it’s here.

Of the 18 fertilized eggs, 14 embryos were still developing when the lab extracted the cells for biopsy. Right before the transfer tomorrow, we will find out the results of the PGD on the remaining embryos. Then, based on the quality of those that are unaffected, we will transfer one or two. (If we’re lucky, we’ll have some leftover to freeze—for another try if this round doesn’t work OR for another baby later on if it does.)

The transfer itself will only take about 15 minutes and should be a lot like the trial transfer from last month (plus some Valium and a full bladder). And that’s it. We go home. I rest for 48 hours. And we wait for about 10 days for the blood test. After everything else, that sounds like the hardest part!
