They're In!

The last few nights have been rough.  I kept having nightmares that my three little embryos didn't make it to transfer.  Thank goodness those dreams did not come true.  Transfer was this morning!  One of America's Most Wanted embryos was arrested at the 9 cell stage. BUT the other two made it to Day 5 transfer and are now on the inside!  Here they are, a beautiful blastocyst and a morula (stage before blastocyst):


I would just love to show them this picture someday.  Hopefully at this very hour they are settling in for the long winter and beyond.  By the way, I really don't like the phrase "PUPO" - Pregnant Until Proven Otherwise.  It's the "until" that bothers me.  Makes it sound like having it proved otherwise is an inevitability.  I propose the term be changed to "Pregnant Unless Proven Otherwise", which I think sounds a bit more optimistic.  Who's with me?

Thanks to my brother, my kids have been chauferred around and well cared for today while I've been in bed.  Having him here with us has been such a blessing.  I was actually in bed for most of Sunday and part of Monday as well due to being sick.  Tomorrow will be another lazy day.  I am getting so spoiled!

Lovenox started today (OUCH!  That stuff burns!) but tomorrow will be my last PIO shot before transitioning to Endometrin suppositories.  This is to avoid any bleeding and bruising from the PIO shots that may be caused by the blood thinners.  Works for me!  I much prefer the "ick" of suppositories to the "ouch" of those big needles.  So all good news today and I hope it just keeps on coming!
