Thanks for all the god wishes girls. So, the first embry didn't survive thawing, but the second one was good to go. I was delighted when they turned on the ultrasoud for the transfer, to make sure they were putting it in the perfect place - we actually saw the liquid with the embryo in it going in - it was like a little flash! Pretty amazing! I stayed there for about 10mins afterwards to relax and then we went home. Now I've got a whole week of doing nothing ahead of me! Pure bliss. A ton of magazines, fluffy socks, a fluffy blanket and my fluffy cat sitting on my lap! I'm visualising the embryo getting compfy in the cosy blanket im my tummy thinking "oooh, it's lovely here, I will stay, this is my home now!" ;D
On my last cycle, there was a lot of changing going on in work during my cycle, and seeing as I have plenty of holidays left I decided not to put myself through that stress again (in my job you never know what's next!). Test date 2nd December, but I might test earlier.
Mod1, they didn't say about the quality of the embryo, and to be honest, I didn't think to ask! I prefer not to know too much about the details, sure even the best quality embryo might not make it! On my first transfer they never switched on the ultrasound, so maybe it ended up too high up to start with. I was reassured when they did this time, at least we know they put it in the perfect place, and hopefully it'll stay there now and get comfortable. What will be will be, but to be honest, I'm dreading testing day already! I won't get a bleed this time because of the meds, so if it's negative I won't even have any warning from early bleeding or anything. But positive thinking eh... If the embryo is anywhere near as comfy as my cat on my lap we'll be laughing! :-)
God, they were very careless not to do an eco-guided transfer the first time. To be honest this is standard practice everywhere else. Anyway, good this time they did it. Are you on a different support protocol this time? I thought you were on crinone the first time too? Let me know and keep visualising the embryo nestling in!!
Yep, I was on crinone first time, this time I'm also staying on the HRT meds they put me on to get my lining ready. Nothing else changed. Fingers crossed eh. I try not to worry too much about the details, to be honest, based on the fact that I know I can get pregnant. I've been pregnant 3 times now and the only problem seems to be the location of implantation.
Yeah, mod1 you always seem to want to know every detail LOL I guess that comes as part of your job too! I know the embryo were all in the B grade when they were frozen, but to me that really doesn't matter to be honest, as long as it sticks! So, nearly a week into the 2WW. I'm totally shattered, I've had to get new bras as the medication increased my size considerably already! I'm trying to keep my mind off it, but realistically it's always in the back of your mind. Getting bits done for xmas, but a bit hesitant to do too much, as I want to have stuff to do if it doesn't work out. I'm just going to enjoy the rest of my time off now, back in work on Wednesday and I can't say I've missed it!!!
this whole thing of keeping my mind occupied is not that easy! I'm trying, I really am, but now that I'm into the second week, I keep thinking I should be getting symptoms if I am preggers, and then I'm trying to talk sense into myself, cause I know some people don't get any symptoms for ages (I didn't on the last 2 ectopics, and just tiredness on the first one), plus it might not even have implanted yet! I'll be kept busy this weekend making my nephew's Chelsea cake for his birthday, and finishing xmas shopping, hopefully that'll distract me a bit!
2 days til testing. no symptoms. mod1 did you get any symptoms at all before you tested? I know you tested early and got your BFP day 9 after transfer, but I'm holding off til Wednesday. Hubby thinks I'm "different", he thinks something is up - he just says I come out with stuff at the weirdest times and don't even realise it. I have no idea what he's talking about! Could be the hormones from the medication though!
