I am back and resting! Everything went as well as it could go, so we just have to wait another 2 weeks to find out if we have some sticky babies or not! It's going to be a REALLY hard 2ww to make it through!

The best news. Before the transfer, my RE and embryologist came in and discussed our embies with us to decide how many to transfer, freeze, etc. Much to my surprise, the embryologist had the HUGEST smile on her face and said not only were 7 out of 8 of them 8-cell, but all 8 were grade A, which is the absolute best- no fragmenting at all. (The other was still a 5 cell, but graded A). She said "We wish that every embryo could look like these ones, but of course if they did, I wouldn't have a job". DH & I were soooooooo happy. We both got tears in our eyes when she left. We now know that we have 6 healthy snow peas frozen for us later. We transferred two absolutely perfect 8-cell embies.

The procedure itself is supposed to be as quick and easy as a pap... well with my weird-o cervix, it doesn't EVER go smoothly. Long story short, FOUR speculums and THREE catheters later, they got the catheter to exactly where it needed to be (way up high in my uterus) and it was done. It took about a half hour-- the longest half hour of my life! I never thought I'd get off of that table without peeing on my RE! All of this was done with my DH by my side rubbing my arm, kissing me on the forehead, and just being wonderful. He got to watch everything on the u/s screen.

Now I have to continue my progesterone-in-oil shots each night, my baby aspirin, and go back next Friday for a progesterone draw to make sure it's high enough. I'll also go back the following Thursday (the 25th) for my beta test. It will be FOREVER from now!! 13 more days!

Thanks for all of the good wishes, everyone! I am really hoping that (at least) one of these embies sticks with me for the long haul!!

Jackie, I think your cycle has gone just about as well as anyone could have hoped for...all we need is that BFP to put the cherry on top! I'll be thinking of your embies and praying that at least one settles in nice and tight.

I laughed so hard when you talked about peeing on your RE...I felt the same way! I was trying to think about something else, but with the nurse pushing on my stomach for the u/s and my RE messing around down there, I really thought I was going to have an accident I'm glad that you made it!

Thanks SO much everyone!

Melissa! That was the hardest part!!! Each time they thought they had it, they removed the speculum and had to try again with a new one. And it all started over with the pressure and pushing on my tummy with the u/s! I kept saying that I was hoping not to have an accident on them! Everyone had a good laugh, which helped ease things a little. lol

Congrats transfer buddy! I was coming to check on you. I am getting my beta on the 23rd and then another on the 25th. I guess my doc does them earlier.

I am sending you a bunch of sticky vibes!!!!!!

I was sending you good vibes all day yesterday! I am so happy that things have gone so perfectly throughout this entire process. Now, like Melissa said, we just need that BFP to make this happily ever after story PERFECT!

Loads of sticky dust coming your way lady!
