Today was embryo transfer day. It was slightly less traumatic than last time but still uncomfortable.
We got there about half 12 for a 1.15pm transfer – but this ended up being more like a 2.30pm transfer – which isn’t that good when you need a wee (the process is carried out with a full bladder). .
But all that matters is that they’re in, where they belong. I cried like a small child when they were passed down the catheter into my endometrium. The embryologists et al probably thought I’d lost the plot. They printed us out a little picture too of the embryos in situ!
Now comes the hard bit – we wait!!! Trying to find some stuff to distract from the waiting. I’ll probably test early again – but no harm in that…It’s just too tempting! In the meantime, we just take progesterone twice a day until we get the result of the cycle. If we get pregnant, we take that till week 13/14 of the pregnancy. If we don’t get pregnant, well, we don’t!
On a slightly more depressive note, last time they checked, the other 4 embryos didn’t look freezable. I think if this fresh transfer doesn’t work, it would be more bearable if we have some in the freezer…However, this could change overnight – as they are lagging behind a bit where they should be at this point – but they’ll let us know for sure tomorrow afternoon.
Stay with us Holly and Frosty. We love you so much already !!
