We are thankful to report that the transfer went well! We had two perfect (to us) little embryos transferred that are HOPEFULLY currently taking up residence in my uterus. Or in the words of the announcers from the Olympics, they are hopefully going to "stick their landing." Hysterical, I know.
We also found out that four additional embryos were able to be frozen, so out of the 10 that fertilized, 6 survived, which was also great news!
Anyway, allow me to briefly chronicle our transfer adventure via the following photos:
This is me in the waiting room... that look is supposed to communicate "I'm bored" as well as "OH MY WORD, WHEN ARE THEY GOING TO LET ME PEE?!"
Brian, who was not being forced to sit for an hour with a disturbingly full bladder, was just plain bored. Do you like how he's wearing pink and blue? :)
Yep, these pictures never get old. And by the way, I promise that I do (on rare occasions) make normal faces when being photographed.
Ready for serious business, clearly
The lighting in this picture is a little terrifying, but I thought it was important to show one of both of us together.
Transfer complete! (I didn't take any pictures during the procedure. Sorry/you're welcome.)
Some sweet friends brought us dinner on Friday night which was delicious and greatly appreciated!
Those same sweet friends also got us DQ blizzards, mine being the largest possible size, obviously!
Some other sweet friends brought us this cute gift basket (not pictured: beer for Brian)- I think we could get used to this bed rest thing!
This little guy kept me company (very briefly) while I enjoyed being a bed-ridden prisoner. There are no more pictures of me after this because 3 days without a shower = not a very attractive look for me.
(Also not pictured: my sissy and parents, who came to visit/entertain us on Saturday!)
And yes, one more set of sweet friends brought us dinner on Sunday night. Please note that Brian prepared my plate, which might be why the mac&cheese to fruit ratio is a little skewed :)
So there you have it. I went back to work on Monday and we have since resumed life as normal, minus any strenuous activity or heavy lifting for yours truly, and plus some extra progesterone and estrogen supplements, also for yours truly. Fun times.
We appreciate your prayers while we wait- for peace, patience, and ample distractions :)
