Embryo Transfer is DONE

So the ET was yesterday at was realtively easy. I arrived around 11 and downed my 32 oz of fluids (plus some water) for the FULL bladder. At 11:15 they called me back and went over the post procedure instructions. And then it was just waiting for the RE to come in and discuss the blasts and their status. I had no idea how they were doing, so I was anxious. For my procedure, I had Dr. G, since my regular RE was out of town. She said I had 9 blasts still growing and looking great. The best one qualified us for a single embryo transfer (which was our preffered option), but there was a second very good embryo if we wanted to do two. The answer to that (with Andrew's utter fear of multiples) was nope, we'll stick with one and hope for the best. So one it was.

The procedure is much like an IUI or a pap really (stirups/speculum and all)....but you do get to watch....COOL. So Dr. G places a catheter, then they bring in the embryo and you watch the tube pass into position and then you see the fluid with the embryo flush out and into place.

Now, I am just hoping that little one snuggles in for a long stay. My beta is on April 8th.......I think I will have to POAS before then. ;) That is just too long to wait. I think I will try and wait until next Friday.

Oh, we'll find out in the next few days if any blasts made it to freeze. Hoping some make it for sure!!!

Fingers crossed.
