Eggs harvested - now what?

DSis had eggs harvested today, she said they were fertilised today and she finds out tomorrow how they are doing.
I'm so nervous and excited for her.
I don't like to ask her too many medical details as I think that's so intrusive but am dying to know more!

She'll find out tomorrow how many have fertilised (how many embryos she has) then depending on the clinic policy and how well they grow she'll have one or two embryos replaced on day 2, 3 or 5 (today is day 0). If she is lucky she'll have some to freeze as well so the next time she won't have to go through another egg harvest, she can have frozen embryos replaced instead.
Hope it goes well for her.

Thank you.
I'm alternating between excitement and tears!

Waiting for those phone calls each day to let you know the progress is agony, time stands still. Be there for her the best you can. Sending her very best wishes.
