Fertilization Report

I gave Tony my cell phone today. I wanted him to take "the call." In fact, I wasn't even home when the call came. I got home from doing some shopping and my cell phone was on the table and Tony was no where to be found. I grabbed the phone and checked for missed calls, none.

I put away groceries (which means I placed the unpacked bags directly into the refrigerator). I noticed in the fridge that Tony had bought a bottle of my favorite margarita mix. I had a sinking feeling in my stomach. Why did he buy that? He doesn't drink margaritas.

Then I went to find Tony and give him a tongue lashing "Kate Plus Eight" style. But he didn't have the phone for a good reason. He had already gotten the call. "We have four petri babies." Per Peggy the coordinator, who my husband called Betty, they look good. I'm pleased that she said they look good, but I can't imagine she would say, "You have four, but they look crappy."



Four! Four! Can you f*cking believe it?!?!?! I teared up a little bit, I was so happy. I'm thinking of cranking up the Hope-O-Meter, but I'm still feeling cautious. Another hurdle cleared...

Now we wait for the three day report. It seems so far away. Can I have a margarita tonight to celebrate or would that be a bad petri mommy thing to do?

WaaaaHoooooo! Sweet. I'm so excited for you. Um. I'll have a Margarita. I got a little nervous when I read he bought the mixer for you. Yikes.

But a sigh of relief for FOUR! And I say as long as the babies are snuggled up in a Petri dish, a Margarita wouldn't hurt a thing.

Yay for 4! That is great news! Congratulations! I don't think it would hurt anything to have a margarita tonight. It might be the last margarita you have for 9 months...

I vote yes to margarita. Hell. Have 2!

I would like to quote your last post: "It was like dawn at a frat house. I was groggy, trying to dress myself, and I had a vague feeling that something had penetrated my vagina."

Fabulous

Personally I'd go for a virgin margarita, but I'm not a tequila fan anyway. Whatever you do, enjoy it!

womb for improvement said...

What a relief, great news.

And I certainly echo everyone else, have your last drink for, hopefully, a very long time.

The Lonely Scrapbooker said...

Wow this is amazing. I've read your last three posts like 5 times just soaking it all in.
I hope the news keeps being good. I have my fingers crossed for you (hope that helps).
I hope that after this the waiting and anxiety is centered on a little one (or ones) in your tummy.

musicmakermomma said...

I am so thrilled for you - 4 embies!! And you were so crushed earlier by the (possible) numbers, I guess you never know. I suppose I'm glad they never tell me the donor's numbers, I'd go crazy!

Good luck - can't wait for the 3 day report (and I know it is late to weigh in but I would totally have had a margarita, have one every day til transfer!)

This is wonderful news, Megan! I'm so happy for your four embies - you totally can celebrate! (Although I'm a little late with this comment, so you probably already did)

Sending you lots of luck and sticky vibes! Looking forward to the day 3 report.
