Now We Wait

It's done. We went to the Dr. on Saturday morning for the embryo transfer! Of course it did not go smoothly, which I expected from the trial of transfer. There was some trouble getting to my uterus so it took longer than normal. They had to basically put a needle and thread through my cervix and lift my cervix by pulling on the thread which was hanging out of my body...so weird! After some pain from both the procedure and my FULL BLADDER, it was done...there were officially 2 embryos in my body. I even got a picture of them...one of which is already hatching :-) And, to my absolute utter surprise....we have 2 embryos that we can freeze!!! This is a very big deal....only 20% of patients have any left to freeze!

I have spent the last 2 days laying around sleeping and watching tv while Joe has been cooking, cleaning and shopping...what a deal :-) He brought me home a treat of Cheetos's, 100 cal. cakes and scratch off's...so sweet! Unfortunately, I am supposed to be eating low carb/high protein so I can only have a few treats!

Thank you to my friends and family for their calls, emails, comments and visits!

Yay!!!! I was hoping you had updated your blog! GREAT NEWS. I'm so excited for you and Joe. The picture of you and Joe before the procedure is really good. I need to come over and cook some low carb meals with you. :)

Oh Amy - I am keeping my fingers SO tightly crossed for you! Those are some beautiful embies - I hope they make you some beautiful babies!

(Your transfer story is a scary one, though! You're one tough chick!)

I'll be thinking about you. Keep us posted!

Woo-hoo! One more phase is complete!! I'm so happy to hear that the transfer was successfully (if painfully...that sounded like a major ouch) completed. I'm praying for at least one of those pretty little embryos to implant. Hang in there and enjoy the special treatment. You totally deserve it. Hugs to you, Joe, and the little embryos!
