Just got off my consult call with Dr Keenan. He sets them up on the date of the transfer for all his EA patients. I'm sure it might take a bit longer if a pregnancy hadn't been acheived, but mine was a 5 minute phone call.
I found out that the embryos we adopted were 14 years old! Wow! That's pretty amazing that they can be frozen for that long and still be alive! I am sort of freaking out though... he said that 14 years frozen was among the oldest they'd used... but he said they don't decrease in viability or quality in the frozen state. My pregnancy is no higher risk than any other of their transfers :)
It's strange because looking at the profile initially I knew that the twins born from this "batch" were born in 99... but I guess it didn't really sink in.
He said there's no reason to do genetic testing... and I'm to let my OB know that the bio mother was 34.
My ultrasound is set up for next Friday afternoon. I'm so anxious! I just want to hear a strong heart beat!
The order that NEDC sent me was for anytime next week... but I want Mat to be there to hear the heartbeat for the first time, too (and he wants to be there!) and he has Friday afternoons off... so, next Friday afternoon it is!
Dr Keenan said that that's when we'll know about singleton or twins. I honestly don't feel like I'm pregnant with twins... but who knows? We'll be blessed either way! :)
God is great!
