Discovering Me

Me on having babies, losing babies, trying to have babies and hoping to bring this one home.

First, thanks for making me feel less lame about the freeze/re-freeze thing. Phew.


Just back from Vegas. We ended up waiting to transfer on Saturday. So, we blew a day with some friends and got to enjoy the wonderful Vegas eateries for an extra day/night.

Well, by the time we flew out on Thursday there were 5 embryos still growing. By Friday there were four. By Saturday there were 2 grade 1 blasts and 2 that was still compacting/cavitating (stage before blast). Saturday we decided to transfer three. We transferred the two blasts and the better of the two that were a little behind.

Pretty unusual for this clinic to transfer three. I could tell Dr. BM was doing it for me and because I pressed him. Last time we had the same issue, we were left with one that we froze and it ended up being a big waste of time. At least he caved and transferred all three.

So, that's it. Now we wait. That wonderful time when the loads of progesterone and estrogen that I am swallowing/injecting/inserting/wearing start to make me have symptoms that mimic pregnancy symptoms, but are likely just the result of all the drugs.

So, I rested Saturday and Sunday. We have wonderful friends who let me crash on their sofa while they brought me everything. We had filet on Saturday and S even cut my meat. That's love right there...

First Beta is February 6.

God help me.

    Thanks for the update... I've been checking way too often! :)

    Three sounds like a good number to transfer. I'll be hoping for great numbers on the 6th.

    Here's hoping for a happy day in a week.

    I understand the crappiness that is LP support. The progesterone alone makes you feel like crap, and gets your brain thinking. I'll be thinking of you in the trenches!
