My Embryo Transfer was today at 1:00. Tony took a 1/2 day off and was able to come with me....I much appreciated this as it was a little weird with him not being at our last one in December due to his new job. (although my mom did a stellar job as a stand in!) When we got there they gave me my valium and then the embryologist came in and reviewed our cycle with us. She said of the 6 that were mature, 4 fertilized normally (which we already knew) and of those 4 only 2 were left. We had 2 that "arrested" on day 2 and stopped growing. Of the two that were left, both were grade 2's and one had 8 cells and one had 10 cells. She said they they expect them to be between 7-10 cells on day 3...so that was good. So, we transferred both of them:)
Again, the worst part of the whole thing was the pushing of the ultrasound on my very full bladder. I joked that I hoped that I didn't pee on anyone:) Luckily it all went smoothly and quickly. I remembered that someone had given me some meditation music for post transfer, so I remembered to bring my iPod so that I could listen to it during the 30 mins after transfer that I have to lay and wait. I joked with Tony that I'm not very good at meditation....just can't ever turn my mind off all the way....but I sure tried today:)
After transfer, we headed home so that I could start my bedrest. Officially I should be on modified bedrest (basically being a couch potato and only getting up to use the restroom and eat) for 24 hours. My mom is keeping Owen for us tonight and tomorrow night, so I'll get a little more close to 36 hours before heading back to work on Thursday-thanks again Mom! I also have a 10lb lifting restriction...which will not be fun with a little boy who wants his momma to do everything:(
My blood tests are 5/18 and 5/22-the dreaded Friday/Tuesday betas again!
So again we wait.....:)
