As we continue forward, we learn that this process is much more complex than what most people think. We are learning that each case is so unique that the general process is tweaked to be matched to each patient. Patience is key to IVF. IVF is an art....no two cases are the same!
As you all know we have our 5 embryos waiting for us. We love knowing our babies are already all genetically created and are just waiting for a home to grow in for nine months to become little human beings. I can not wait until we get to see them in the lab! I know they will be microscopically small, but still, they are our babies. The whole idea is a miracle. We will get to see them implant them inside me on an ultrasound monitor. We will get to see our little ones from the very beginning! Some say they compare this experience as the same feeling as watching Neil Armstrong take his first steps on the moon. We were told we will be in complete scientific awe. I am so glad that they will let Patrick in the lab with me to hold my hand. They treat this as a minor "surgical procedure". We will both have to wear scrubs with pre and post care instructions. I was told it will not be painful, other than some mild cramping.

In addition, we still are on the fence about how may embryos we will want to transfer. We think we know what we are going to do, but are not sure yet! I am sure we will know the right decision as the situation approaches us!
Keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we embark on our journey! ....and The rollercoaster ride of emotions continues! We are almost there! :)
