Transfer Day

So…it’s been a while since I’ve posted, huh? Thanksgiving & Christmas just kept me too busy.

Ok, so let’s get straight to it, transfer day.

So in my previous post I told you we were doing the day 5 transfer. Hubsy and I got up early Wednesday morning and headed to the clinic. I was a little nervous and a lot excited. When they took us back to the transfer room they checked my bladder and told me it wasn’t full enough so they brought me a bottle of water to drink. I drank the whole thing in less than 10 minutes. BIG MISTAKE.

When the doctor came in, she had a picture of two of the most beautiful embryo babies I’ve ever seen. Smile

The transfer itself wasn’t bad…only a little a lot uncomfortable because my bladder was so full from that stupid bottle of water. I knew it wouldn’t take much so why in the world did I drink that whole bottle of water?? Anyway, after the transfer I had to lay flat for 20 minutes which was pure torture (due to the extremely full bladder). When they told me I could get up, I didn’t even wait to get dressed to go relieve my bladder. I just wrapped the sheet around me and flew across the hall to the bathroom. Hey, I’ve lost all modesty through this process and I’m sure I’m not the first one to be running through the clinic wrapped in a sheet, LOL.

I was told to go home for the rest of the day to rest and if I could, rest the next day as well. I had an appointment the next Friday for the blood pregnancy test. However, they told us we could take a home pregnancy test on Thursday…at the earliest. So I went home to endure what other IVF alumni call the dreaded 2 week wait (although mine was only 1 1/2 weeks).

Be sure to check back Thursday to find out what happened after the 2 week wait.
