Our Baby's First Report Card
So we were up bright and early this morning (again) at HIVF *in case* it was determined we were going to have a three day transfer. Thankfully, it was decided that it would be a five day transfer. We needed to be there and ready just in case, as the clinic is only open for two hours on Sundays.
Our embryology report (aka our baby's first report card!) looks like this:
