Just to update everyone with progress in our IVF cycle, we had our egg retrieval yesterday Monday the 7th. 17 eggs were retrieved, and that's a great number to start with. I just received a call from the fertility doctor that out of the 17, 12 eggs were good to fertilize, out of the 12 fertilized eggs, 11 developed into embryos. WE HAVE 11 EMBRYOS SO FAR! Music to my ears! Tomorrow we will find out how many have survived and progressed, but right now I'm ecstatic! I really feel good about this, and hope that it's finally our time!
Me In A Nutshell
My name is Kristina and I'm 37. Originally I'm a Southern CA girl, and I'm now living in the "burbs" of Chicago. I love my son, my husband, my family, my fur babies, and my wonderful friends. I love wine, love to relax, love to have a good time, I'm a little adventurous, love to people watch, and I'm always down for a last minute road trip to virtually anywhere. I'm obsessed with the smell of racing fuel...weird I know - and fresh cut grass! I love to be home, but hate to sit at the house. If I'm excited I get pretty random - sometimes I talk about multiple subjects at once - I'll admit it's probably hard to keep up. My husband and I battled infertility for 5 years before having a successful pregnancy - our son Colton Charles was born September 30th, 2016, Although we have had success with the birth of Colton, our battle still continues with infertility. I've learned it's a wonderful & beautiful thing to share with others the journey that we've walked in the world of infertility. Welcome to our story.
