1dp3dt-Pics of our embies and a timeline

Here they are!  I'm not sure what to think when I look at these images but it's neat to have them.  I've propped them up so I can see them while on couch rest.  Speaking of couch body hurts from laying around so long.  I'm taking tomorrow off of work but I think I will be back Tuesday.  For those who haven't seen a timeline for post three day transfer I am pasting one below.  I hope our embryos are still growing and developing, it's so nerve racking not knowing what's going on in there.  I am actually feeling better today.  I think things from the ER are finally healing up.  :)

Timeline for post 3dt:

1dpt...Embryo is growing and developing

2dpt...Embryo is now a blastocyst

3dpt...Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day

4dpt...Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining

5dpt...Implantation begins as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining

6dpt...Implantation process continues and morula buries deeper in the lining

7dpt...Morula is completely inmplanted in the lining and has placenta cells & fetal cells

8dpt...Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood

9dpt...More HCG is produced as fetus develops

10dpt...More HCG is produced as fetus develops

11dpt...HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on HPT

Here are a couple of interesting images I found related to the timeline above:
