I prayed over our little embryos last night.
I couldn’t sleep, not sure if it was the cramping, vicodin (which should have knocked me out, right?), or just soaking in the process that’s taking place. Nevertheless, I prayed. I don’t really know what happens to the other embryos, say, if we have a positive the first or even second round. Do we just keep them forever and ever? Can we donate them? We weren’t too keen on giving them up for research. So, I just prayed for God to watch over them all. As far as I know, they are all babies-in-the-making.
The nurse called me this morning and said of the 13 eggs, 8 fertilized. We have 8 little ones, as of yet. The pre-op paperwork said they’d call on Day 1 (today), Day 3, then Day 5. But since we’re heading into the weekend, our next call will be Monday (hopefully)! That’s just too long to wait! I’ll just keep praying… for a healthy baby, or maybe 2. This is our first IVF and I’ve read other blogs of 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 8th IVF’s… so I’m still cautious. I prayed for you fellow IVF-ers too this morning.
Until Monday, Have a great weekend! Oh yes… and another thing, the nurse did say I could have a glass of wine. So, party, I will!
