CCS Results

This past Wednesday was a normal day at work. Jazz band in the morning followed by 4th grade lessons throughout the day. As my students were packing up from the 11:28 lesson, I was completely surprised to see a missed call and voicemail from my nurse. I knew that we'd be getting a call soon, but was never given a timeframe. I thought maybe Thursday or Friday we'd get this very important call.

It took all my strength and will power not to run over to the window (only place where I get service) and check the message that instant. I was tempted, but didn't want to lose it in front of my students. One student was taking an especially long time packing up. I ran over to help him saying, "I don't want you to be late for lunch!" Gahhhhh!! Move it, move it, move it!!!

When I was alone, I ran over to the window, said a quick prayer, and then hit the button on my phone to listen to the voicemail. I listened for clues in Nurse Jessica's voice as she started her message... Does her tone sound like it's good news or bad? Please, please, please let this be good news. Her intro sounds all business like... or is that her pity voice? Oh, god, is she getting ready to say the worst news? Her pitch just dropped and her cadence just slowed. Please, please, please don't say the worst. Then her tone picked up about ten notches as she said, "I have really good news for you today!"

Our embryo is chromosomally normal!!! I started crying the second she said those words and didn't stop for about 30 minutes. I was so happy!! And it was like all of the stress from the past several months just came pouring out of me. I couldn't concentrate on the rest of Jessica's message (she was giving me instructions for our FET cycle. EEEEEEE!!!!! We're going to have a FET!!!!), so I saved the message and hung up the phone. I called John and told him the news (through tears again, he was so cute, he said he wished I wasn't crying. When will he get it that I cry when I'm happy?!?!).

There was much celebration and rejoicing. To be honest, we are still blown away, humbled, and head-over-heals happy about this news. We have a fully hatched grade 6C blastocyst with 46 normal chromosomes. This is the best news ever!!! 

We will have a transfer in April, and we are now praying that my uterus will become the perfect home for Frostie Ninja. Please, please, please stick around little one!! 


  1. I am so so so happy for you!!
    I am sure you will have a perfect ninja habitat... Where do they hang out...
    Hold please while I google that...
    Booo it appears they trained in special ninja villages... that isn't very fun!
    I can't wait for you to have your ninja transferred!

    1. I've been thinking of it as a dojo... I know that's more martial arts related, but close enough!! Though I like the idea of a village. My ute can be a village! I'll make it nice and cozy too. Hopefully worth sticking around for 9 months!!

    2. I was thinking dojo at first too... You are going to make a nice cozy village where ninja will want to live for 9 months!!! and it can also be a dojo for it to grow up nice and strong!!!!
