Tell me what you want, what you really, really want

Yesterday was Day 0. According to some info I have this is what happened:

When eggs are brought to the laboratory, they are removed from the follicular fluid, washed and placed in a nutrient solution (medium) in an incubator. The sperm is also washed and processed in such a way that many of the dead and abnormal sperm are removed, and the motile sperm are concentrated. The sperm is incubated until the afternoon. If the sperm appear normal, and there is no suggestion from the patient's history that fertilization might be a problem (e.g. unexplained infertility), the sperm are placed near the eggs, and they are incubated overnight.

So this morning, Day 1, they checked on the little social scene, and this is how things look: 6 of the eggs and sperm have paired up and are "going steady". The other 3, well they are destined to be wallflowers and have been thrown out of the program.

The couples now have 2 nuclei in the center, one from the egg and one from the sperm. They don't look like much, they don't do much...they just sit there and waste air from what I can tell.

They will decide tomorrow if they are going to do a 3 day or 5 day transfer, based on how many are still dividing. I am hoping that we end up with at least 4 great quality embryos so that we can transfer 2 and freeze 2. But - what I really want is to transfer 2, get pregnant, have twins and donate the others to science. Here is to hoping we all get what we want!
