We had ten embryos as of Monday. A little less than I had hoped for, but still more than enough to be thankful for. We sat down with the doctor and went over the two best ones. They were clearly the best and looked different than the rest. They grade the embryos and the ones that were picked had a grade AA and the other an AB. Really good! So I thought the transfer would be painless...ha.
You have to have a full bladder and I ended up laying there so long that they had to cath me to empty some of my bladder before continuing. Ahh the joys of baby making. The actual procedure lasted about twenty-five minutes. It is a little like having a pap mixed with an IUI (for my infertility friends). It is all ultrasound guided and afterwards the "tube" is checked to make sure the eggs have gone into the uterus. When the embryologist confirms that they drain your bladder and put a wedge under you for thirty minutes while you lay in recovery.
So I am officially two days past my transfer. I will be honest and say I am nervous and not looking forward to or am I antsy for the two week wait to end. I know the devastation if this is a no especially after how miserable I have felt the past week and the overly swollen beached whale look has really added to my mood. I have a good feeling that some of our embryos will freeze and we will be able to use those for future cycles and another chance. I guess I have just never had a positive pregnancy test so it is hard to think that could happen in a few weeks. I have plenty of thinking time on my hands now that I have to lay low through Thanksgiving...can you tell?
I could use some good vibes and well wishes. Let's hope something has decided my uterus looks cozy.
