MATCHED!!!

We have been matched with a total of 6 blastocysts from 5 different genetic parents! Our first choice was a set of 2 embryos, so if they both survive the thaw, these will be the babies transferred to my womb (we are praying to this end). If one or both of them do not survive the thaw, we have 4 more profiles of 1 embryo each that will be dethawed one at a time until we have 2 or 3 survivors for transfer.

We responded to the profile email within 17 minutes! I'm so glad that God is sovereign over this - It would be so stressful without resting in Him...knowing that we can't thwart His good plan for our lives is comforting.

I also received my protocol from the NEDC nurse today and will start my Lupron shot in my tummy beginning next Tuesday - I've never been so excited about a needle.

Lord willing, in just 4.5 weeks, our babies will finally be in my womb! - Our official transfer date is Tuesday, July 20th!!! :)

WOW Jennifer!!! That is awesome! COngratulations to the both of you! The day Jennifer Garcia called me to tell me to start my lupron was such an exciting day! I was a little nervous putting that needle in my belly the first couple of times but it is really easy after you do it once or twice. It doesn't even hurt really. Just a pinch or a poke and you're done. :) LMK if you have any questions or want to talk about anything. We can't wait for your transfer date to arrive! Rachel
