Babies Back

Yes, we made it to transfer.  I have no words for how grateful I am to have made it to this massive milestone in the process.  We put back two embryos.  One a grade 4, 8 cell embryo and the other a grade 3, 5 cell embryo (poor little mite has quite a lot of fragmentation, but I am not giving up on him, just assuming he has his father’s genes and is a slow developer but once he develops will flourish and outshine all the others.)

The transfer was an absolutely breeze once we got into it.  The process was significantly delayed (nearly two hours, during which time I ended up having to empty my very overly full bladder and refill it.  At one stage Prof (yes it was Prof who did the transfer) asked if I could feel him putting in the catheter and I said ‘No’.  He said he could really tell how relaxed I was.  Well of course I was relaxed I had made it to the point where our babies become a real possibility.

I have to say I became very emotional again.  In fact I woke up emotional yesterday just thinking about the fact that our babies were coming back.  Then hearing that Gary Moore had died, really made me sad and I made Chris listen to Gary Moore in the car on the way to the clinic.  And yes I shed a tear or two at the very thought that we were in with a real shot. 

Having photos this time of our embryos has really given me something to pin my hopes on.  I have added the one photo to my desktop on my cell phone so that every time I look at my phone I am reminded of the possible miracle happening inside me.  It has really helped to keep positive.  I am back to feeling positive and hopeful and can’t even bear to contemplate that this might not work out.

Test day next week Thursday (17th February), nine more sleeps.  I have all these little fantasies going around in my head of how we will deliver the good news.  The timing is so perfect that I will be able to tell my step-mom and my uncle in person.  Now if only I could fly everyone else down here so we can tell them in person too!  Anyway I am getting all overwhelmed with emotion again (must be the pregnancy hormones ;-)). 

Please keep my babies in your thoughts and tell them to make themselves at home Chris and I are going to be awesome parents, they are going to love being a part of our family!!!
