Pregnant until proven otherwise!
So today was the big day, the day when they put those little embies into their new home for hopefully the next 9 months or so. The transfer was actually really easy. The hardest part was that I had to have a full bladder and for me that is HARD! I decided that I wouldn't start drinking anything until we were almost to St. Louis, well even with only having a sip of water an hour into the trip I had to make a pit stop. About 15 minutes before we got there I had a couple of good swigs of water and thought I would be good... WRONG! We got to the clinic and sat for about 10 minutes before I had to "let a little out". It was miserable. By the time we got into the transfer room I was in pain, they put the ultra sound wand on my tummy and I thought I was gonna lose it! But he said it looked good and if I could hold it for 10 more minutes that would be great... UGH! The transfer itself took no time. A lady came in with this catheter type thing and said "two blastocysts for Heather Allen, is that you?" I felt like I was being given my dinner order! LOL! Anyway they ran the tube into my uterus and injected them and that's where they are! hey transferred 2 perfect grade embryos. They were literally the best they could be, exciting!! Afterwards the Dr. went ahead and did a catheter for me so I didn't pee all over the floor... oh sweet relief! Anyway I've posted hopefully the first of many pics below. The first one is of the actual embryos and the second is them in my uterus!
