One day at a time...

***Update - Just talked to doctor.  I seem to understand it all better now.  The one that fertilized that was not mature is just one step below maturity.  She thinks there is a great chance that it will "catch up".  She also said that the other four eggs were also one step below maturity so there is a chance that it may take them a lil longer to fertilize and it's possible we might have another one fertilized tomorrow. 

The report so far:  4 fertilized and of those 4 - 3 are mature.  What does that really mean?  Do we have 4 potentials or 3?  I didn't get to talk to my doctor because she was in a delivery.  (so all of this info is through her secretary). 

The embryologist did report though that there was a possibility that more could fertilize overnight.  He will re-evaluate tomorrow and let me know if he prefers to do a 3 or 5 day transfer. 

At first when I heard 4 I was really excited.  I was hopeful to have 2 to transfer and 2 to freeze.  Then, I didn't know how to evaluate one not being mature.  Is there still a chance for it?  Any insight you have will be great.  Hubby has convinced me not to spend my night "googling" cause that usually ends in me more anxious than before.

As my friend Pam says, one day at a time.  Looking forward to an update tomorrow and in the meantime I'M HOPEFUL!

Oh and progesterone injection #2 went really well.  It was not nearly as bad as I was anticipating.  I iced the area for about 15 minutes prior and I think that really helped.  I am currently icing it now too.
