Today's ET was so surreal. I'm still in awe of it all!
We arrived at 5:30 am and got started at 6 am. Took my valium st 4:30 am so it would take effect. We were able to view the embryos through the microscope, it was amazing! We were then givin a pic of the embies (see attached pic) The top left embryo is the golden one! The doc instructed I have a full bladder but mine was a lil too full causing lots of pressure on my ovaries. So I had to release a lil urine. But the nurse said it was perfect. So since my ovaries were hurting so bad, I took my 2nd valium. Shortly thereafter my RE began the process of the transfer. It was amazing because Steve n I were able to see the whole thing on the u/s screen :) My RE transferred all 4 embryos because he said it wouldn't hurt since the 3 hadn't divided much. We had one strong egg at 16 cell that is the one we are hoping sticks. 10 minutes after it was done I was able to urinate n then lay back down. I must have dosed off for almost an hour lol. But I felt great! The nurse then discharged us n we were on our way :) doctors orders were to be put on bed rest for the next few days, so no work.
I just have to say that I am feeling more at ease than ever before. I'm so grateful to have made it this far considering I have such low reserve. This is a true blessing to have experienced n I'm hoping for a BFP so that I can help encourage everyone else! The prayers n faith of everyone else has made a huge difference n has brought me peace. My Birthday is this Sat, July 21st, so I'm praying for a birthday present this month! Until then, I rest ;)
I will continue my PIO shots n estrace pills and I go back next Wed for blood work. Then I go back on 8-2-12 for my first beta :) here's to the 2ww!
