I am with embryo!

Filed under: IVF #1 Round 2 — by Jess @ 6:52 am

Yesterday was my embryo transfer and we successfully transfered one embryo. We went in with the intention of transferring two but the doc and my nurse Ellen really recommended only transferring one. They told us that we had beautiful embryos, some of the best that the lab has ever seen. They gave us a 60% chance of implantation. Since having twins was never my goal and I only wanted to transfer two in order to increase the chances of having at least one implant, I feel mostly comfortable with the fact that we transferred only one. Once and a while I become a little panicky, but I just keep telling myself to have faith in the embryo. We had 4 blasts that they were able to freeze for the future. 

So I have been trying to take it really easy. I spent all day yesterday laying down. I am working today but I am staying off my feet and taking it easy. Thankfully I am supervising an new employee who is at the tail end of her orientation, so she is doing all of the hard work.  Of course I did fall on my ass today at work when I went to sit on a stool. Fabulous. Hopefully I didn’t knock the embryo off from its implantation journey. 

I am really nausous today. I think it is from the heat. Its obviously not morning sickness, that would be way too fast! But I do feel like I am going to toss my cookies everynow and again. Gross.

So my beta is on Friday July 18, 2008!!!
