Frozen Embryos: The Good & The Bad

As it turns out, we do have frozen embryos. That's the good news. The bad news is that the three of them are 1) a female carrier, 2) an affected male and 3) indeterminate due to DNA degeneration. So that's that. We were wildly hoping they were from the donor cycle, but, oh well. They apparently lost the paper work that we signed stating we wanted to donate our unused embryos for research, so we're signing that again and sending it over. Anything that will help other couples trying to start familes, go for it!

Next up: Bathroom pictures. We're pretty sure that we now have the nicest bathroom in our town.

We interrupt this saga...

... of my fabulous labor & delivery story (yes, there's actually more) for this little tidbit.

I received a bill today from my clinic for embryo storage. My first reaction was "Hey! We don't owe this $$, we have no embryos in storage!", followed quickly by a more subdued "we have no embryos in storage."

I have never wanted to owe money more in my entire life.

Upswing: grateful as all get out that we have the wonderful little wee one we do, who turned 2 months old last Friday. Now it's back to work for me!
