Did I say I wouldn't post until I was back in NJ? Ahh! I lied.
Well, I'm officially on bed rest. Dr. S.urr.ey (who is my doctor) did the transfer. He came in and said they'd thawed 2 embryos in the morning and there was 100% cell survival on both but that if they hadn't expanded well, he recommended putting in both. And I was set to do it under those circumstances. But five minutes later he returned to say "great news, they both expanded and are hatching - one is 4AA and the other 4AB, so I recommend putting in one." I said "let's do it." (so the have now re-frozen the 4AB - which, BTW, they've done several transfers with twice-vitrified embryos and have had perfectly normal pregnancies/births)
John, the embryologist came in, I saw my little bubble on the screen - hatching and all. Very cool. And I asked John "so you think it looks good?" and he said "it doesn't get any better than that." Comforting.
The only difficult part was my bladder. My goodness, I had to pee twice before the transfer to get some volume down. I actually broke out into a bit of a sweat so there was just no option. And then between the speculum and the moving of my legs and never mind the ultrasound on my tummy - I can honestly say that one single part of it was not pleasant at all. At transfer my bladder was still full and when the nurse came in with a bedpan 10 minutes later, I wasn't even embarassed - I pee'd so much I thought it would spill over. Even the nurse commented how much it was.
I had acupuncture this time. Why not? Can't hurt, might help. :)
So now I'm back at my room - snug as a bug in a rug under the covers. Not really affected by the valium - that stuff doesn't do much to me, but it's a nice to have - you know?
I'll POAS too early, I'm sure - 'cause I'm a kook that way.
Thanks everyone for your continued support through this journey - and it has been that.
Oh and I bought the Lost (first series) to watch at the hotel. Everyone is so hooked on it that I figured this owuld be a good time to get into it. I also brought the Moonlight series DVD. I'd watched a couple of episodes when it was on air (the vampire dude is so effen hunky - wow!) but this way I get to see it all, in sequence.
Until later my friends....
