Aaaaaaand They're In!

Yup my embies are safely inside. We went to the clinic pretty early and we had to wait for 2 hours for the Prof to be ready for us. And then we had to wait for a bit longer for the embryologist to do assisted hatching on the embies. When I walked into the procedure room I kinda panicked a little bit when I didn't see Prof anywhere. Instead there was another doctor. I asked the nurse where Prof was and she told me that he was doing an IUI procedure in the next room. A few minutes later he showed up. I swear to God I wanted to jump up from the stirrup and give him a big hug (if that weren't so inappropriate :P)

They called DH in and Prof explained that all four embies would be transferred. Three embies were pretty slow growing but the other one was already at the blastocyst stage, or as Prof put it, it was almost human hahaha. He was really happy with that one. And then he showed us all four embies on the screen, and all of them were beautiful. He then shooed DH out and told me to lie down and get comfortable on the stirrup. In a few minutes it was over. He seemed pleased and gave me a screenshot of the embies.

See that dot with the circle in pen? Those are my embies. So now I'm officially PUPO!! It turned out that we didn't have to decide on how many embies to be transferred coz Prof made the decision for us. I don't want to think about what happens if all embies turn out ok and I'm pregnant with multiples. If that is the gift that God is giving me, then I'll take it. He said that I can already do my beta next Wednesday which is really fast. I suppose coz one of my embies is already a blastocyst. Plus with the assisted hatching and all that jazz. But I think I'm gonna hold out until 9dpt. 

So now I'm lying in bed with all my provisions within reach. My Mac, my books, biscuits (I get hungry a lot) and my meds. I'm not missing the office one bit, although every now and then I do check my office e-mails, much to DH's annoyance. What can I say? I like to think I'm a responsible employee :P

I don't remember from the last ET whether I had cramps on my lower abdomen, but I do have them now. I'm not sure if that's a good sign or not. I like to think that it is. What do you think?


  1. CONGRATS ON BEING PUPO!!! I think cramps are good. I have had them on and off since a day or 2 after transfer. So excited that you get to test so early too!

    1. Thanks Mel. My cramps have disappeared today. Do you think that's a bad sign? This is seriously driving me crazy! LOL!!

    2. I had cramps on and off throughout the 2WW. I had them all 3 times. Try not to worry about it. (Easier said than done.) Remember there are a lot of women out there who don't feel anything and still end up pregnant. Hang in there!!
