Today was transfer day. I arrived way early again, as usual. I just couldnt bear getting a phone call this morning saying none of them made it. So I thought I will just go and make them give me someone's embies if mine were not ok. LOL Just kidding. All 3 made it. I was set for 9am. Dr. Emily stated that I had a 4 cell with 10% fragmentation, a 3 cell with 20% fragmentation and another 3 cell with 30% fragmentation. I have to admit, I was pretty upset with the number of cells. But she assured me that she has seen pregnancy come from 4 cells and also, if the transfer would have been later in the day, there may have been more cells. She stated that they would only transfer 2. I stated I wanted 3 but she said with my age they wouldnt do it. Said implanting the 3rd one wouldn't increase the chance for pregnancy, only the chance for multiples. I got my first picture of my babies and it was showtime. We got in our scrubs, then off to the procedure room we went. This experience was interesting. Not really painfull per se, just weird with being so exposed for a bunch of people to see your business. They tell you to relax and drop your knees. Ok, hard to relax when this is the single most important thing I have ever done in my life. My lining measured 13 and the doctor said my uterus was beautiful and perfect. So we are saying many prayers, hoping for growth of the babies and stickiness so they want to hang out for 9 months. After being back in the room and talking to the doctor, I mentioned POAS and she definitely said not to do it. I told her it's just that NOTHING about this process has been normal. I longed for the day when I could hold a positive stick up to my husband and tell him he is going to be a father again. I started crying. Then the doctor laid her hand on my shoulder and sat with me till I could calm down. Very nice of her!! After laying on my back for 30 minutes, we were off to the car for our 2 1/2 hour drive home. This afternoon I have laid on the couch and then laid in my bed for a quick nap. Now watching SuperBowl with my hubby. Oh, and I ate a little bit of the core of the pineapple. Chewy and icky. But I did it. Now, if I could just get the dang PIO shot to quit hurting when the medicine goes in!!! lol We have tried holding it in our hands and even put it between my boobs to warm it up. Helped a bit but not great. Beta day is Feb 21. I get to wait an extra day for mine. 15 days!!! lol The joy of having transfer day fall on the weekend. My DH has a saying. It is : Dont think, just pray. Please pray for growing embryos and sticky dust. Heart you all!!!
