Well, it’s done.

My day started really well.  Mum came and picked the boys up – it’s school holidays – and then I went to Acupuncture.  I could really feel things happening.  Then it was off to my transfer.  I got a parking spot right out the front which never happens.  They kept me waiting for a while.  I spoke to the Embryologist who said they now had a front runner – an expanded blastocyst – that they had chosen to transfer.  The other little fella will be frozen today and his mate tomorrow if he makes it to blast.

A bit more of a wait and I went in.  I was the only transfer they had this afternoon so things were pretty relaxed.  Dr M is sooo good at what he does I barely felt uncomfortable.  A bit of a wait once they put the catheter in and it was all over.  I stayed lying down for half an hour then I was on my way.  Next stop Acupuncture again for another 45 minutes lying down.

I came home, had something to eat and (shock horror) fell asleep.

The wait begins!!

Grow little embies

Things are still looking good with two at 8 cells and one at 6 cells.  I’m still not getting excited.  I never thought I suddenly had old eggs.  I thought something else was preventing me from getting pregnant.  I so hope that they are right – which gives this a fighting chance – and I am wrong.  If I am right we will make it to Blast and it will all flop anyway with implantation failure.  I must confess time is starting to drag a little 🙂

Grumpy, grumpy, grumpy…

I am grumpy.  I assume this is hormonal, but then maybe it’s just me.  Either way I’ve had a pretty easy run of it, so I’m trying to control myself and not take it out on everyone else.

Spoke to the Embryologist today.  All three embryos are level pegging and all are at text book 4 cell stage.  We are scheduled for a Blastocyst transfer on Tuesday. Of corse I know that this is really hoping for a lot and chances are they won’t make it.   If they do I will go into battle with Dr M over the number to transfer.  I want to transfer 2 as if my eggs are so great then it’s reigniting my lining issue and this is the only way I see of actually increasing an implantation chance.  A lot will depend on the quality on the day. Nearly everything I have read has said that it is standard practice to put at least two back for over 38 – I’m closer to 42!!!!
