My favorite number...

Well, my favorite number today is 5!! :) We're going to day-5 transfer guys!! We've been praying that our little embryos would continue to do well. The nurse called and said they are doing great! 2 are at 8-cell/excellent stage and the other 2 are at 8-cell excellent/good. They're going to let them go to day-5 and at that point, they will be at the blastocyst stage. Alex and I talked about it last night, and decided that if they made it to blastocyst stage, we would put two back. They recommend 1-2 when they reach this point. Anymore really increases your chance for multiples. I'm fine with multiples, but evidently they have guidelines that they have to go by. Alex and I feel good with this decision. If God wants us to have twins (or more), it will happen. :) I told Alex yesterday, "if they call and say that only one made it through the night, that's the one God is going to use." I believe that with everything in me. I haven't been able to stop crying, since receiving the call. I just sit here, praising the Lord for keeping His hands on our little babies.

Thank you all for praying. Many of you have been praying peace upon us, and can I just tell ya...we can feel it! We're blessed to have so many that care and that cover us in prayer. No matter what happens from day to day, we want God to receive all of the glory and praise!!

Love you guys,
Jill

I'm crying with you! I am so excited and praying for twins :) I'd be ok with twins too, but beyond that the risks really do get big... not to mention the feeding issue I already mentioned :)
SO exciting!!

So excited for you both! Isnt God amazing how He can form a life out of these little cells?! He is a GREAT BIG GOD!
I'm new to the whole IVF deal and dont fully understand it all...so I was wondering .... what happens to the ones that you dont have put back? It might sounds like a dumb question.....I just dont really know much!!
Any Way....I am praying for you, Alex and the 4 little ones. God knows whats going to happen and that is so comforting!
God Bless.
