Next Egg Donor on deck!

We just got word that the next egg donor we hope to receive eggs from will likely start her stimulation medications this Friday, with an anticipated retrieval by the week of 3/1/10!

As for the status of the fertilized embryos, we wound up with two "Grade A" blastocysts to cryopreserve.  According to the Clinic, the vitirification process used in the cryopreservation provides for an average thaw rate of approximately 99%.


Lets just hope that this doesn't become an Abbott and Costello skit!  Hey - who's on Third?  I don't know?!?  First Base!  nyuk-nyuk-nyuk!


  1. Hey,

    I'm glad to hear that you guys wound up with a Grade A blastocyst. Let us know how the retrieval goes!

  2. There are many infertile couples who have no hope of bearing a child on their own. However, surrogacy is another way for them to have children, through the aid of another woman. A surrogate mother will be pregnant with a child who is not her own. I think for couples who are thinking for a baby and not having it then it is good for them. Thanks for your nice post.

  3. I think Pregnancy is not possible for everyone. Many couples who cannot attain parenthood after trying to conceive for more than one year. There are many reasons attached with these infertility either in men or in women or in both and sometimes there is unexplained infertility. It is the option for those who want a baby and not able to become parents for any reason.I also love babies a lot i have 2 kids one is mine and second is through surrogacy. Thanks for sharing us your thoughts.
