Ok. I thought it was exciting to have 33 eggs retrieved. I have been informed that 22 of those have been fertilized and are now growing. They will grow for a few days and the viable ones will be frozen/production will be halted until they can carefully be transferred to my warm, cushy uterus in several weeks. How many of those fertilized cells will continue to grow? There are 2 masses of dividing cells, growing right now, that will, in less than 1 year, be newborn babies.......that I help bring into this world....Amazing to think about......
Is it weird of me to be saddened just a bit that these mass of dividing cells are all alone in a sterile, cold, distant lab and not in a warm, loving, welcoming body?! Soon enough little ones, soon enough. I will give them shelter and nourishment until they can get to their daddies. :)
