The One with the Embryos
"Hello tiny embryos. I'm Pheobe Buffay. I'm hoping to be your uterus for the next 9 months. You should know we are doing this for Frank and Alice. Who you know, you've been there! You know they want you so much so when you guys get there really grab on! And I promise I will keep you safe and warm until your ready to have them take you home. Oh and the next time you see I'll be screaming but don't worry thats whats supposed to happen. Good luck!"
Thats right!! We did the transfer last Thursday at around 11ish! As you can see above, those are the embryos we transfered. I know before I said that we were only doing one but we made a last minute decision to do 2 instead. The one that looks like its from Russia had 7 cells which makes it a very good quality embryo and is most likely going to be the one that sticks, if both of them don't stick!
I don't have time to write about everything that went on while I was in MN but here are some highlights...
Got to the airport at 11 on Wednesday.
Flight was delayed by three hours.
Was going to eat sushi for dinner but Nate was afraid it would hurt the baby so ate lasagna instead.
Woke up Thursday morning.
Took a shower for the last time for the next 2 days.
Forgot to drink the water I supposed to drink before the appointment.
Took the Valium the doctors gave me 1 hour before the transfer.
Got a little high on the Valium the doctors gave me one hour before the transfer.
Saw roses on the ceiling and was singing "We're Off to See the Wizard" while waiting on the doctors.
Drank water out of the bathroom sink. Like an animal.
Nurse gave me two hospital gowns to put on for the transfer. And a hair net.
Did the transfer. Actually saw the embryos going through the catheter and placed on my uterus through the ultrasound. Pretty cool.
Took a 30 minute nap in the next room under a warming blanket.
Went home and changed in my pj's.
Layed down on the couch.
Watched tv. Slept. Watched Tv. Slept. For 2 days.
Finally took a shower on Saturday at 11!!
Worked on my invite list I'm having for my Scentsy party I'm having in November.
Went to Mall of America with Ang.
Went to H&M and got 2 new dresses!
Ate frozen yogurt.
Went out to dinner at a place called Doolittles.
Had the chicken and biscuits.
Gave Nate a little lesson on how to eat his food.
Woke up Sunday morning.
Drove around with Ang and Nate to find a place to eat breakfast.
Ended up going back to the MOA and ate crepes. Mine had bananas and carmel. Yummm.
Went to H&M again.
Bought a belt.
Off to the airport. Went back home to Nashville.
Cuddled with my little boy for an hour. He missed me:)
So there you are! We take the pregnancy test on Monday the 25th at my doctors office. It will be another blood test. They will fax the results to Dr. Campbell in MN same day. We should know the results by that afternoon! Pretty exciting! We are counting down the days! Meanwhile I am still taking the progesterone and estrace. Trying not to be too active but I do have a 1 year old and a five year old so you know how that is.
Wish us luck and keep us in your prayers!!
