Perhaps, I SHOULD have worried.....*updated*

Just got the call, from Dr. Pipsqueak herself.

5 fertilized. Only 5. They're recommending that I transfer 3 embryos. She said that it "looks good, but it's still early". There is a chance that I'll have a 5 day transfer, but I won't know until Sunday morning (the day of what would be the 3 day transfer).

Fuck.

Why do I get the feeling that this is going to TOTALLY suck? Why can't something go my way, for once in my life?

Fuck.

*************************

Transfer is set for Sunday at 12pm (also known around these parts as "high noon"). I'm to be at the surgery center at 11am with my big-ass bottle of water and ready for anything. If it ends up being a 5 day transfer, they'll call me on Sunday morning......nothing like waiting until the last minute, huh?

Of course, that means that I'm not singing the last two Masses on Palm Sunday....oh, well.....priorities, you know.....

Okay, hang in there. 5 is okay, and they want to transfer 3. All you need is one... I am so pulling for you guys, and your five little embryos. Just keep growing...

Those could be the 5 best quality embryos you have ever had. I am praying for you that they are. Remember it only takes 1. Hang in there sweetie. It will happen this time.

Honest to god, we must be playing with the same fertility deck. The roller coaster is fucking awful.

I think you're in good shape with the 5, and you should definitely have thre three to transfer. Hang in there!!!!!

I hope that those eggs are just amazing and the embryos are even better.

what about doing a 3 day transfer?

I could be talking out of my ass, but it's what I've heard...

sorry it wasn't more - and fuck fuck fuck!~

Heather said...

Damn. I'm sorry. I know you wanted more than that.

Five is my favorite number and it has been really lucky for me. I hope it is for you too!

Katrina said...

Well I tell ya....5 ain't awful. I am getting a bit crampy from being in this knot for ya, but I will soldier on and not unpretzel myself until you say so! Sending every kinda positive vibe for those embryos I can muster! Hang in there!

Saying a prayer that Palm Sunday brings you special luck and karma.

Five is good, more than I've had with some cycles. My very first IVF cycle(80 years ago), transfer was on Easter Sunday and I was sure it would work... Newbie thinking.

I say put back the whole crew if they all hang in there. Thinking of you and hope that transfer goes well.

Thalia said...

Beth said...

Hang in there. I am praying for you!!!!

Jessica said...

Very similar to mine steph. We had 21 only 5 made it and they transfered 3 on day 3 for us. Good luck today, keep us updated.
