The embryos are still dividing

This morning the lab let me know that we're growing the embabies out for a day 5 transfer!! All 10 of the embryos are still dividing - 5 of them are 8 celled and the other 5 are either 7 or 9 celled. That's SO exciting! To me, it means that the embryos are of better quality than last time - in May, by day 2, they had already decided that they needed to do a day 3 transfer - so this is GOOD news!! The only issue is that I'm working Wednesday and Thursday... now I've got to get out of that. It's more than a bit rude to cancel last minute, and can mean professional suicide for a relief vet, but I'm not planning on doing any relief work in the near future anyway, so what's the worst that can happen?? They won't hire me again? Oh, well.... this is MUCH more important as Wednesday could well change my life!

I'm feeling much better today, as compared to how I've felt over the weekend. I made cinnamon rolls for B this a.m. and started the laundry. I was waiting on that call from the lab to plan my day, but now I can take a shower and do whatever it is I want to do. I really need to go to Fayetteville and get my Class A jacket to the alterations department so they can add the braid. I've got to have my official photo up online by next month, I think, to make the promotions board in January, and I don't want to miss out on that because of something stupid. It took them 6 months to get the jacket here! It had BETTER fit!!

I'm trying to catch up on some housework today. There's a ton of laundry to be done - I've been a slug these last 3 days. To be honest, I've felt AWFUL - today is the first day that I've really felt human. My belly is still a little sore, but there aren't the shooting pains that I've been dealing with the last couple of days, so that's nice. I guess I'm getting back to "normal" whatever in the hell that means.
