Thanks! I had a moment when I got home and just sort of went a little nuts - I know better than to dwell in the future. Right now is what I need to worry about and focus on.

I've been talking to them

And, no, they didn't give me anything to relax for my transfer and apparently I missed the full bladder memo (I had been drinking water all morning and I thought I was full but I guess my definition of full isn't theirs!), so they had to use a catheter to fill my bladder. That was more uncomfortable than the actual transfer, but thankfully they also released my bladder when they were finished.

The actual transfer wasn't painful, just uncomfortable. But I did get to see the RE insert the embryos, which was really cool.

I'm thankful for you guys today, because I needed to be encouraged by women who have been where I've been and had the same fears that I have. So thank you!
