Good News Has Been Overdue For Some Time

I got the call.

Out of the 7, 5 fertilised by ICSI and are looking good this morning.

Both the embryologist and I were crying on the phone. She knows our history of failed fertilisation and nil transfers from the 2 previous cycles.

I am gobsmacked. Even though they were not my eggs, I was still worried about Mr P's sperm and whether the ICSI would work.

Looks like that question was answered, hmm?

Transfer tomorrow at 9.30, please, please to all deities.

PS: I cheated on the flower pics. Yes, they are all from my garden at various times of the year but only the bluebells are currently in flower here. In fact, I just noticed the pic of the tree with the birdhouse and realised it is no longer with us. The wee rowan tree succumbed to a fungus last summer and it had to be taken down. At least it still lives on, here on my blog.

PPS: Another household where some good news has been long overdue are celebrating. Go over to Jen at Chew and wish her and her husband congratulations!
