48 percent

That's the portion of my 23 eggs that fertilized. That's 11 embryos, for the kids in the back of the class. Of the 23 eggs retrieved, 10 were not mature, and 2 fertilized abnormally, leaving just less than half of those puppies left to divide in the comfort of a warm petri dish across town.

The transfer is scheduled for Saturday. If you're reading this, please cross your fingers that some of those 11 embryos are still in good shape then.

I'm no expert, but that sounds like a stellar fertilisation performance! Nice one. Here's hoping they progress pleasingly to the next stage of development.
