Embryo on Board!

We have an embryo on board and hopefully snuggling in for the next 9 months!

The transfer itself went great. It was my fourth transfer and third one at this clinic so knew what to expect. I always worry a little about the embryo not surviving the thaw, maybe more so this time just because it’s a lower quality embryo. All was fine though.

They had the picture of the embryo on the screen in the procedure room. It looked good to me, but I don’t really know. It was definitely hatched out of its shell which is good, I know that much. The embryologist asked if I was ready to transfer this “nice big embryo.”

After the transfer I was wheeled back to the “recovery” room to relax for 20 minutes before I could get dressed and use the bathroom. After that they wheeled me down to the parking lot to where the hubs and kids were waiting. Then we headed home…easy peasy!

We’re about about an hour from home at the moment. I’m ready to snuggle up in my bed. They gave me a Valium before to relax the uterus and it made me a little sleepy. Plus all the excitement and anxiety leading up to the transfer takes a toll.

I’m feeling really positive about this transfer and I hope it’s well placed. My beta blood test is on the 27th πŸ€žπŸΌπŸ€žπŸΌπŸ€πŸ€

Waiting to go back
Transfer socks!
