Dear embryos

Dear embryos,
The egg harvest went well. Dr. S. called this morning and said six of you eight eggs were mature enough to fertilize! As I write this, you are growing in a dark, quiet room. You are so tiny, it's hard to even see you under a microscope. I am almost afraid to let myself love you already...but I do. I wonder who each of you are. Girls? Boys? Athletes? Doctors? Writers? It's unbelievable to me that as teensy as you are, you are a part of me and a part of your Dad (the best of us I hope!) I am praying for you. I want you to grow strong and healthy. I desperately want you to be able to grow inside me. I will take care of you and love you very much. I can't wait to meet two of you on Friday!

We caught an Angels game Saturday night before the procedure Sunday morning

My brave sweet daughter...soon and very soon you will have your babies growing inside of you!

I can't believe it! I'm trying not to get excited but I know everything is going to be fine. God will take care of you and my little brothers and/or sisters.

I love you!

I saw an egg harvest procedure on the show called DELIVER ME. Was really interesting! BTW you got a cute blog I enjoyed my visit.
