The fertilization report is in!

The embryologist called with the best news this morning. Of the 13 eggs, 9 were mature enough to be injected with sperm (ICSI). Of those 9, she said, "Eight beautiful embryos are continuing to grow wonderfully."

They have scheduled a Day 5 blastocyst transfer for Saturday, February 28. Beta will be Monday, March 9. Hubby and I are both over the moon.
