FET #1 Complete -- Now We Wait

All three of our frozen blasts made it through the thaw. The doc said that they all looked pretty good and I didn't ask for any additional details because frankly what difference would it make. No matter what he might have said I would still be feeling the same things today, tomorrow and for the next two weeks: hope that it works and fear that it won't.

Despite the valium that I'd begged and begged for, the transfer was still excruciating. Last time was pretty awful too, but for some reason this time I just cried and cried through most of it. Maybe it was the anxiety of worrying beforehand that it might be that bad again. I really don't know why, but it sucked and all I could think was that it wasn't a good way to start things off. I think I was also pissed. Despite the horrible transfer last time (3 different speculums and multiple tries with several catheter); there were either no notes about it in my file or the doctor hadn't bothered to read it. Since he didn't mention anything I told him how difficult it had been and what had ended up working -- unfortunately, it still took ages and a lot of discomfort on my part before they were ready to transfer. But, at least that part is over now.

In the last 24 hours I've watched 3 discs full of House episodes, 1 movie, wrote out about 25 birthday invitations, and read half a book. Now all that's left to do is to wait, hope and try not to worry too much (hardy har har!.)

Oh wow, the Longest 2ww(Teee- scary exciting). We'll have to find ways to distract you.
Maybe a Meme or something.

My Fingers are Crossed and your in my prayers.

So we also share horrific transfer experiences.

Keeping you in my prayers.

Wow - they all made it, that's fabulous. Definitely time for some distraction.

Shelby said...

Great news that they all made it! I'm really hoping the next 2 weeks go by fast.

Woot woot! We are both on the wait together. I transferred 3 as well. Fingers crossed!

Here's hoping the 3 Musketeers (or will they be Mousketeers?) band together and cheer each other on. Not that I'm wishing triplets on you (although I'm confident you could handle it), I just hope they all place nicely in there and at least one of them choose to stick around for the long haul.

I will be praying like mad and hoping desperately for you. Let's get together during the 2ww to take your mind off it. Nothing makes for good distraction like 2 crazy little girls slinging Barbies and Polly Pockets.

That ET sounded awful.

Hope the next 2 weeks goes fast for you.
