Embryo transfer



517909?1346347568
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!

I'm glad your ET went well. Now is time to rest and let those embies stick. I know it's up to the doctor but I was on bed rest for three days after my transfer, could not even shower and I think that helped. I'll keep you in my prayers, stick embies stick!!!

So happy your transfer went great. Rest is what you need, not hot showers or baths (at all in TWw). So cool that you got to look at embies and watch the whole thing. Remember stay positive and rest. I'll be praying for a fast TWW and great betas. Keep us posted. :)

@ Cheekyhalfs,

Thank you so much, you are so sweet!! I am hoping and praying that our one special one is doing just what you said, burrowing right where it belongs :) That would be the best ever! I am still in shock that we have gotten this far. I can only hope and pray that this works. This is our one and only shot! I cannot thank you enough for your prayers, they go so far and mean so much *hugs*

Jess I'm so happy you made it to transfer and are in your 2ww :))

You're in my prayers nightly and I'm really hoping for a BIG FAT POSITIVE. Once you start praying for someone it becomes impossible not to feel invested... So count me invested!!

Wouldn't it be something if two stuck!!!

1636472_tn?1401418866
by beddajess, Jul 20, 2012
@ Cheri,

Awwwe I know exactly what you mean about being invested n I am ever so grateful that you are :) I was thinking the same thing, what if 2 stuck lol I would be so grateful for one but even more grateful for 2! Ahhh. I just want you to know that I appreciate you so much! Thank you for everything! *hugs*

Yay!  SO exciting to read this update and I am praying for you girl -- and not just because if you have a little girl you're going to name her after me!!!  :)  Well, I know you're not naming it after ME but you know what I mean...  I hope you are able to sleep well the next few days and that the anxiety keeps at bay but I remember how nervous I was after my IUI procedure!  August 2nd is my favorite aunt's birthday so I will be thinking of you and hoping that July 2012 is the beginning of a 40 week wait!!!

Jess,

You don't know me, but my name is Heather and I usually reside on the MS Forum.  I came across your profile and looked at your beautiful embies.  Your "golden egg" looks like it had "hatched," in the picture. It is a beautiful and healthy looking embie.  This embie was perfect for transferring and implanting.  I hope and pray that this transfer will be the one that gives you, your long awaited BFP.  Keeping my fingers crossed for all the embies, of course.  The golden embie though, looks like the one that will be your BFP baby.  I am not going to count the other embies out though.  I am one that believes in miracle's. Only God knows the answer...and soon you will know.

God Bless you and your DH and little embies, too.

@ Yoha,

You always offer the sweetest most meaningful words of hope and I cannot thank you enough from the core of my soul. I love hearing that the egg was a great one, it gives me so much hope and faith that maybe it will work. This week is going to be so hard because AF should be here :'(  Idk how I'm going to cope if she shows up. Again, thank you sosso much for being a huge support system for me :)

I hope your test goes well tomorrow. I had 2 d3FET on July 21st and need to go in for my test on 8/3. The wait is killing me! Starting to spot a little but I am trying to remain "cautiously optimistic".  Best of luck to you!!
