Today was INCREDIBLE!!! They said our "embies" were doing great and thriving well in the incubator. They chose the strongest 2 which were rated perfect 8-cell - grade 1 embryos!! That's the best rating they could get! They passed their baby FCAT test with flying colors!! D and I were a little nervous, but so excited for the implantation. I took 2 valium and started to feel a little more relaxed than normal so it was time for the impregnation!! It was so beautiful as we watched on the ultrasound screen as they put the perfect embryos into my uterus!! I cried in amazement at the thought of life beginning and them feeling safe and secure as they will always feel! My bladder was full so it would shrink my uterus and "sandwich" the embryos in there and the wish is that they'll "implant" and stick to the wall where they grow and thrive. What a miracle!!

They'll grow the other 10 embies in the incubator for 2-3 days and let us know the report on their grades. They'll freeze the grade 1 &2 embies so hopefully we have some leftover for future children or if we have to do a frozen transfer which isnt as taxing and such a process. We'd skip all the steps so far and go straight to the transfer stage which is what we did today. Once they're frozen, they'll be called our "snowbabies" which is such a cute name!!

Now we wait the long 2-3 weeks for the pg test. oh dear! I wish I could take a 2-3 week nap to make it go by faster!! They told me to take it easy for 2-3 days and Im doing just that. David is waiting on me hand and foot bringing me anything and constantly checking on me and the babies!! It's so cute!!

Want to see the most beautiful sight ever? Here's a picture of one of our embies this morning!!! Their first portrait!!!
Today was "best case scenario" and we're very happy and at peace with everything we've been matter the outcome! This has been a miracle in the making bonding us to each other, as well as our friends and family in ways we didn't know possible......We know your prayers were heard! Thank you for caring and loving us with everything in you!! We love you dearly!!!!
