Our transfer with lots of pics of our day!!
Ahh where to begin it was an absolutely beautiful day for making a baby as we drove to the RE's office an hour from our home today (saturday).I took all the pills as directed and we made it there on time.They took me back where DH and I changed into our hospital wear.After that they took us back to the room where I continued drinking water as I was afraid I hadn't had enough(FYI 8 oz seemed to be enough) I ended up drinking two bottles of 8 oz for a total of 16oz. And let me tell you I had to pee so bad that I hurt. They let me up 4 minutes early since I had to go so bad.We took our video camera and digatel camera back with us and DH filmed the whole thing.Before they begin they gave us a pic of our embies which we were not expecting.And the best news was that all 3 survived the thaw.The RE said we had 2 really good ones and 1 mediocre one.It wasn't bad but not as good as the other 2.While we were waiting afterwards DH and I took pictures, watched our video and ate cookies.These were special cookies that we had bought just for this before our last canceled cycle. They were peppermint oreos with snowflakes on them in honor of us taking home our snowflake babies.And boy were they ever yummy,they tasted a bit like thin mints.We had never had them before since they were special editions.I have lots of pics that I will be posting in this entry.I am so glad that we captured the day as we did.The RE also gave us a ultrasound pic of the embryos after transfer. I have to say that it went so smoothly and was not even half as painful as my mock transfer or IUI was. I have a C shaped cervix that snakes but my doctor was prepared and it was so easy now that he knew from the mock what he had to do.My RE even said that he really liked our transfer and felt really good about it because it went so well.It was over before I knew it.The longest part was the waiting afterwards with your legs raised.So now the two week wait begins.I am on strict bedrest for 2 days and then I am limited for two more after that.And then on day five I can resume normal activites with resctrictions.It is so hard to sit still as I am not one that ever stays put for long.But I just know that before too long we will get our BFP.Thanks for all your supportive comments girls and I was thinking about all of you today while I was there.I am now cuddling up in bed with my bedrest pillow and blanket that we bought for me before our first cycle it's pink(my favorite color) and so very soft.The timeline of the pics is from bottom up.The first ones are before hand after we got ready and so on.Some of the first pics are from on the way home, I saw two different sets of two lines in the sky(the jet streaks and the phone lines both in one pic), do you think its a good sign???? :-)
