Thanks everyone for the messages! Here's a quick update since I should be laying down...

We transferred 2 blasts- one "off the wall outstanding" and one that was good. There will at least 12 left to freeze today and a few others that they will watch and decide whether or not to freeze tomorrow. All ina ll I am very happy and feeling very positive. This donor has gotten two other women pregnant, so I know we have a great shot, if not in this cycle than in a FET.

OK...back to the couch, I'll check back in tomorrow!

After too many failed natural cycles to mention, discover that previously clear tubes have become blocked after surgery to remove fibroids (however, no more fibroids). Decent FSH for 40 year old
