4dp6dt?

I think its considered a 6 day transfer, right? I mean, it took to 6 days for my little embies to make it to testing...and then they thawed 2 of the sweet little things on Friday, they expanded 100% beautifully and we transferred them. I didn't get to see them, unfortunately, since we had the incubator that didn't have a screen but the way Brett and everyone else described them to me, they sounded just like my last CCRM transfer...one was a figure 8 (almost completely hatched) and the other was just starting to emerge from the shell. Sounds like an exact match to last cycle...so lets hope that we are as successful, right?

We had a great trip. Teagan did great on the flights, the hotel was nice, transfer went well, it was incredibly hard to stay on bedrest and let Brett do everything, and tell little baby girl that mommy is stuck in bed (but what a joy, right?). Anyway, it went. We stayed an extra day, bought some cute baby clothes for T at the local, big, beautiful, expensive mall and headed out yesterday. Overnight, Teagan came up with something with an incredibly bad night of vomiting. And, again this morning, but so far today, she has finally been able to keep down a couple of rice crackers and a couple of sips of water. That's it for now. Poor baby girl is hungry and not feeling great, though when her little belly is empty she is still laughing and walking and chasing the dogs, but then she gets hungry and I have to be careful how much she eats and drinks until I know she can keep something down. Its hard!

Okay, on to the 2WW stuff. I thought it would be easier and I know it is, but it still sucks. I'm not nearly as over the top as I've been in the past. But, I'm stressed. I won't be absolutely crushed if this didn't work but I always thought that if I had just one successful IVF and pregnancy that if I chose to do it again, I'd be so confident of it working that I would just go about my business. Not so. I'm almost convinced it didn't work. I mean, I still have that almost 70% chance of success, right? No more, no less. That's good odds. But, I don't know...maybe all of my old fears are haunting me. Either way, in reality, I have my miracle and she is so amazing, so I'm okay. I'm just trying to not get all wrapped up in this drama again but it is hard.

It sounds like it went great! I know it is hard to keep the faith, but try to remind yourself of the good odds. My fingers are crossed for you!!

Oh my goodness, I'm so excited/anxious for you. What was the exact date of the transfer? Do you think you'll test beforehand? And you transferred two, right? Oh I'll be thinking about you tons during this time! Regardless you have the most beautiful baby girl by your side during the wait. And, speaking of that precious girl, hope whatever she has passes quickly.

Wow--I didn't realize you were already there and back! So glad it all went perfectly! Not many more days to wait now.... :)

Weird, the word verification is: bedrusts. Ha.

Hang in there! Sending good wishes and positive thoughts your way!

I so hope all your fears will be for nothing, and you'll get that positive call from your nurse! Sounds like the thawing and the embryo quality couldn't have been better... Best wishes!!!

I'll be in your shoes in about a year when we plan on going back to CCRM for our second! I also say that I won't be as nervous or stressed, but I know I'll probably feel exactly like you do now.

Hope your little girl feels better and good luck to you! Oh, and somebody told me that even if they're 6-day embryos, it's still considered a 5-day transfer... I'm not sure if that's true or not though!
