Just the facts.

At the risk of sounding too optimistic and setting myself up for the downfall (well 3rd downfall) of 2008, the petri dish colony is kicking embryonic ass. Of my seven fertilized embryos, 5 are currently 8 cells, 2 are 6 cells. Transfer is scheduled for Wed., at which time I expect them to line up according to height and weight, don Hazmat suits and flares and transfer themselves to the Uterus of Doom.

I'm hopeful, dammit.

I hope your embryos continue to do well and stick around for the long haul.

YES! Perhaps, given the currant status of the UOD, acting very Un-UOD like, maybe we can rename UOD to UOH (uterus of hope)? Well those are some sharp sounding embryos..

DAMN, Melanie! You and your em'bros are kicking some ass!

They sound tuff enuff to handle even the most doom-ridden of utes.

That's fantastic!

I had my transfer today. I'm imagining the little guys in there bewildered as to where they are, or what to do next, possibly missing the petri dish? :P

So does your center make you do bedrest??? I am bored out of my skull!
