Discovering Me

Me on having babies, losing babies, trying to have babies and hoping to bring this one home.

And now, the news.

It turns out that number three lives! Dr. Baby Maker told us that three had arrested on the day of transfer, but I was told today that it lives and was frozen.

I guess the policy is that even after they say that an embryo has arrested, they leave it for two days and check it just to be sure. So on day two they went back to number three and it had morphed into a cute littel blast. It's reward was a nice chilly nap for the next who knows how long.

Who knew. We do have a back up. here's hoping we don't need it and in a year I can donate it to stem cell research.

    That's a really sturdy little blast you have frozen there! It's wonderful news that you have a back-up afterall. Which, of course, you won't need!!!

    That is wonderful! I'd want to do the same if that were allowed.

    CAN you donate them to stem cell research, or is that maybe in the future? What's the shelf life, so to speak? I've seen brochures for adoption services for unused (or whatever the phrase is...) embryos, for possible transfer to otherwise childless couples.

    If all three are made of the same tough stuff you're home free. Now let's hope that doesn't translate into stubborness at age two. :o)
