Day after transfer

I had my transfer yesterday, they transfered 2 blastocysts one grade A, one grade B. I took it easy the rest of the day and layed in bed pretty much the enitre time, believe me I am very antsy and will be the next 2 weeks. By the end of the day today they should be hatching out of their shell and implanting by the end of the day tommorrow. I was afraid to even get up after the transfer especially when Hubby asked if they could fall out!LOL We were told they were already inside the uterus and you dont need to worry about the falling out part:) But I need to take it easy the next two weeks to help the implantation process. Well all is done and all we can do is wait and pray.

Transfer is scheduled to be on Thursday. I will not know until tommorrow what time it will be. I am anxiously awaiting the return of two of my perfect little embies ,to be inside of my womb. The thought of it all is a little overwhelming.

Retrieval Update

Well, retrieval went great. I dont remember a thing, they give you some really good drugs during the procedure. I know I had the procedure, because I am in some pain today, still not as bad as I had thought it would be. They retrieved 14 eggs, out of those 14, 12 were mature. I am so happy with this news, out of the 12 that were mature all 12 fertilized:) So we will be putting 2 of the embies back in either Tuesday or Thursday, hoping to find out tommorrow.

Yes, it's been a while since I have updated. I have been extremely busy with needles, ultrasounds, and bloodwork! What Fun! Well tommorrow morning I go in for my egg retrieval and have to be there@ 7:45am. From the last ultrasound on Thursday it looks like they should be able to get at least 12eggs I am crossing my fingers on that one. I just hope and pray some of the embies will make to the freezing stage for a later cycle,incase this one does not work. I try not to be pessimistic but I have to be realistic. Odds are against you that the very first IVF cycle will work. My transfer will either be on Tuesday or Thursday of next week. I will update on how many eggs they get tommorrow.

STIMS started

Well I went in for my Lupron evaluation yesterday to do bloodwork and an ultrasound. This was to be sure that the medication Lupron and the birth control pills had suppressed my ovaries enough to begin the STIM shots. I got the call from the nurse and she said all was good and to start my STIMS last night (Monday), they will see me again on Thursday for another Ultrasound and more bloodwork, to be sure the dosage is not to low or to high, and that my ovaries are becoming stimulated now by the meds. My nurse says we should be ready for the retrieval as early as next Friday, the 19th. The transfer will fall on either the 22nd or 24th as long as all goes well and I dont have to stimulate with the meds longer, I am crossing my fingers. I just really want to get this cycle over with I am so done with the shots it's not even funny. I will give myself a million more if I was guaranteed a BFP on a pregnancy test! Going to bed now will update on Thursday.

Have you ever wished that you could go to sleep and wake up like a month later? Well I am so wishing I could do that. This week being my first week on meds has been dragging by. I thought once the injections started that time would fly but it feels like its on standstill. Work is so slow and boring right now that being in the office for 7hrs feels like 18. I hate feeling this way, bored, restless, helpless, tired, irritable, and did I say BORED!!!! DH has been working his ass off lately, works 10hrs a day at his regular job and has picked up 2 cleaning accounts for our business at night, so he is not home until around 1:30am and then gets back up at 5:30am and back off he goes. Honestly I dont know how he does it, but he just keeps saying that we need the extra money especially if we end up preggers. I keep thinking yeah and if we dont then what? all that extra work and exhaustion for nothing, is it worth it? I have these mixed emotions right now that just snuck up on me, like maybe IVF wont even work, then what? we have no plan beyond that. Also what if we do get our BFP and then that puts even more strain on us, financially, personally, and what If I dont know what to do with a baby 24hrs a day?LOL What if I cant stand to hear a crying baby all night, Can we say GUILT. That is what I will feel if we have a baby after all this time and I cant even stand to be around them. Anyways enough ramblings for the night, I'll be back later.

One down and many more to go!

Well 1st shot down, it was pretty easy and did not hurt much, just a little pinch. Unfortunately
I will have many more shots to go this month, probably close to 50-100 or so, not happy about it:( I wish I could just take this whole month off of work just to relax and stay positive, but of course we have to work and make the dough to pay for this procedure, so wha,wha,wha to me.
Well I'll be updating soon, my life is pretty dull at this time so I wont be posting everyday, would'nt want to put anyone to sleep!LOL
