Friday, Feb. 10th was Go-Time! We left the house early in the morning to sign papers at the lab. We put our heads together and said a quick prayer before walking into the lab. Hubby ended by saying, "Please make this work." We knew that we had 3 embryos frozen that we were trying to use during this FET. We both caught our breath a little when the man at the lab said he thought we only had 1 to use that morning. ONLY ONE? My heart sank.
Next door I got on the table and the Doc came in with the report that only one embryo had made it through the thaw. I told the Doc that I was really disappointed that we only had one. He reassured me that the one embryo we had was still a Grade 1 Blastocyst and looks great. I asked which IVF Cycle it was from, but no one could answer because IVF #1 and IVF #2 embryos were frozen together.
The transfer of our one embryo went very smoothly and quickly. The Doc explained everything that he was doing and pointed everything out on the ultrasound screen. He told me that I was to lay on the table for at least 15 minutes - and if I stayed there more like 30, he wasn't going to shove me out. Right before he left my room, he grabbed my hand and said he really hoped it worked this time.
While I laid there, one of the IVF nurses came in and went over my medicine protocol with Hubby and me. After 35 minutes, I finally gave myself permission to get up, stop to see the acupuncturist, and then head home for bed-rest.
