All Of Our Eggs Are In One Basket

We received confirmation today that our new clinic has received our embryos from our old clinic. While I like to picture a messenger running across town carrying a little cooler (like in the movies) I know that the process is a bit more complicated than that.

Embryos are frozen and stored at temperatures cooler than -150°C.  And you thought that Minnesota winters were cold....

Obviously a lunch cooler would not be able to maintain these types of conditions.

Thankfully there are a handful of companies that specialize in the frozen shipping of biologics (yay!), and will do so for a handsome fee (boo!), that our old clinic offered to pay for (yay!).

All of our eggs are safely in the "basket" of the new clinic.
