New Embryos

Over the past couple of months Manon and I have been going through the process of IVF again. I won't get into all the details, but the good news is we got some great embryos and yesterday Manon had two of them transferred back. The procedure went great and now Manon is on bed rest for a couple of days to help them stick. We'll be going in for a pregnancy test on September 8th.....

This image is of the two embryos we transferred at 5 days old. At this point the embryos are 32+ cells.

Leiden's New Bed

Well Leiden upgraded last night to a "big girl" bed. She was pretty pumped up about it all night running all round while we were setting it up and climbing all over the place. It was pretty weird to think that now she can roam about the house in the night all by herself. When it was actually time to go to bed she changed her mind and said that she didn't want to sleep in a big girl bed, but we read a story and put her to bed and pretty soon she was fast asleep. One bonus though, she actually slept for an hour and a half past her usual wake up time. At 8.30 in fact I had to go wake her up because she was still asleep.
