ICSI. The following morning the eggs are checked for evidence of fertilization. The embryos are cultured in the IVF lab for 3 more days. At this time the biopsy for GCH will take place. While the cells are being analyzed at the lab in New Jersey, the embryos continue to incubate at CNY for 2 more days at which time they are transferred back into my uterus (will elaborate in upcoming post.)
As soon as the drugs wear off tomorrow I will post an update about the retrieval. The only information I will have tomorrow will be the number of eggs collected. Thursday morning they will call me with the fertilization report to let me know how many of the eggs were mature, how many fertilized, and how strong they are. Until then, all I can do is pray!
