The Transfer

I can't believe it has only been a week since our embryo transfer! It turned out to be quite a strange experience and I'm not even going to get into everything but our appointment was for 8:15 and before the transfer you have to drink 32 oz of water so that your full bladder will push your uterus to the best place for the doctor to see it.

When we got there we could hear one other couple in the room next to us in for their transfer and it sounded like another couple in for their retrieval.  After waiting 15 minutes the nurse told us that the embryologist was last and they were waiting for him to arrive.  We heard several different excuses as to why he was late, from car trouble to alarm trouble.  Either way, he finally got there probably around 8:30 and they took the couple next to us in.  Then we heard the doctor saying something about doing the schedule out of order and then he took the other girl next instead of us.

Finally around 9:15 (with a very full bladder) he came in to talk to us and showed us the picture of 2 embryos that were recommended to be implanted.  They really looked great, especially compared to the last time. 

And there is more to the story after that, but basically he did the implantation and after resting for 30 minutes we headed home and I was on bed rest for 2 days.  We already had one blood test and the numbers looked good, we have another on Monday.  Honestly, I don't have a good feeling about it right now but we will see!

Now we are at the lovely time where Jeremy has to give me a very painful shot in the bum every morning and then I get to give myself a blood thinner shot after that, just hoping it is all worth it.

Thanks again for all the support!!
