We have a penguin!!

This was very unexpected and yet the clinic called just now! One of the compacted morulas became today a very nice blast!! The embryologist said it was even a bit bigger than the ones we transferred yesterday (it's a day older!) but it was perfect quality for freezing. The other one was also a blast but not as developed and she felt it wasn't worth freezing it.

We call frozen embryos penguins! So we have a penguin! I'm so happy!

No other updates a part from the fact that I'm resting a good bit, I want to give this two sweet-peas all my love now, I suppose I feel a bit guilty that I didn't have much faith in them...

  16. If their slacker sibiling could turn into a great blast on day 6 and be worth freezing, I'd hope the two you transferred are just great too.
