Thank you for all of your kind comments, thoughts and prayers! I’ve been quite positive, but a little help from your friends makes it that much easier.
Sorry to keep you waiting with news on how today went! I was hoping to scan in the photo of our lil cupcakes but I guess I’ll have to share a pic later because I can no longer keep you in suspense. Today around Noon, two “perfect” blastocycsts were transferred to my cozy womb — which means I’m pretty much pregnant! The embryologist said one blast is about ready to break out of its shell and he expected it to start implanting tomorrow. We were relieved to hear that only two embryos were thawed and they both made it (I posted about this concern before)! We are extremely fortunate to still have 11 on ice.
The transfer went off without a hitch, except for that pesky tiny bladder of mine. I thought I was going to lose it about half way through the 30 minute post-transfer resting period. My husband did a great job distracting me while reading a menu from a new restaurant we want to try. He knew food would do the trick. Hubby also stroked my cheek at one point during the transfer, which was the absolutely sweetest thing in the world. He’s been totally amazing today.
I went to acupuncture before and after, came home, and parked it on the couch. I’ve been reading and chilling with my husband and cat. After the transfer, my acupuncturist said my pulse felt “expectant.” I’ll take it. 🙂
My beta isn’t until 3/30. Until then I will remain positive. I am feeling great physically and emotionally. I want to keep it that way. I will continue Estrace and PIO injections twice daily, as well as a baby aspirin once a day. I finished my course of Medrol today.
For now, I will enjoy how I’m feeling right at this moment: very loved and a little bit pregnant.
Thank you again for all your support, from the bottom of my heart. Xo!
