And then there were 5!

I spent the morning clutching my mobile in my sweaty, eager little hand, willing the embryologist to call. She said she would call in the morning so she called at….11.55am. Erm, thank you for that.

Anyway good news – 5 out of 6 eggs were mature and all 5 successfully fertilised. What a relief! I’m pleased. I know we still have a long way to go but this is a weight off my mind. The ICSI situation threw me off balance yesterday – now I feel hopeful again.

I have decided to skip my Thursday lunchtime yoga class today as I feel like I’ve been pummelled in the stomach – or maybe karate kicked by a midget. I’m still sore and bloated so no downward dog for me today. It’s a shame as I LOVE yoga and I feel like it has really helped me through the last 12 months of fertility hell, but I think I need 24 hours of taking it easy. I’ll make up for it in a day or two.

Egg transfer is scheduled for Monday (day 5), fingers crossed our 5 little embryos keep growing until then.
