Eggcellent Retrieval

YEAH!!!! 19!!!  Just got the retrieval number from J&M's donor.  We took a little poll last night, and guess who picked the lucky number?   The good thing about ICSI is that extra bit of science which makes the odds so much more in J&M's favor.  The perfect single sperm injected into the perfect egg, and hopefully they all grow beautifully.  Surrogate has been selected, J&M wanted Dr. Shivani to select the best person for them, which made that part so simple.   We all have so much faith in Dr. Shivani.  We know she cares for every single person involved in this transaction, from the Intended parents, to the donors, to the surrogates, and to her staff.   And, I know she cares about each baby born as if it were her own, and in some ways, they are all her children.   Such a miracle for all of us involved.  Yes, it takes time, money, emotional investment, and the first try or two might not work, but we are all confident that it will work in the end.   We are so fortunate to live in such a world of science and technology.


  1. Hooray!! Now on to the next step. We are still waiting to hear when and how many were transferred into our SM. Good Luck - we are sending your sister lots of sticky baby dust - tell her we are crossing our fingers we get to meet up next March!!

  2. Great number! Best wishes for the next step x
