This just in...

Of the nine, there are now seven. Seven. An oddly comforting number, better than say .5 or, heaven forbid, 41. Of the nine, one was immature...like I would want that one for a potential child! One fertilized, but then arrested. I have to believe the sight of its seven petri mates lifting weights and discussing Platonic theory caused the poor dear to keel over. Better now I guess than when experiencing the chaos that is the womb. Seven it is. I will get no updates on this motley crew until Monday. I hope that their petri dish isn't situated anywhere near that 20 something that came in after me. They're too soon in this life to experience that kind of performance anxiety. Instead, I will picture them holding embryonic hands and humming Mozart's Requiem.

An early warning to all carolers, reindeer and jolly elves....Beta is December 22. Be warned.

Congrats on Lucky Number 7!

Your post made me smile at the thought of them holding hands. You know at least one will turn and look at another petri dish, flip the bird, and say "What are you lookin' at punk?"

Gook luck!

Haa haa, I love your petri dish humor!! Seven is perfect! How you managed an egg retrieval AND getting your christmas tree up in one weekend is beyond me. I can barely clean a toilet around here. I hope you'll be throwing up in one soon (from ms).
