The day has finally come!! It's been almost a year since we first started talking about this possibility and now we've done it! This morning at 10:15 (Saturday Dec.12th) we transferred two embryo's on day three. One was rated as a B+ and the other as a B, both at a wonderful 8 cell stage (they like to see between 6 to 8 cells on day three) and looking good. There ended up being 5 healthy embryo's out of the 7 so they now have three frozen for future baby's all of them rating at least a B (one was a B+). There is a huge sense of relief having completed this step in the process. Now all we have to do is sit back, relax and wait. Since Christmas is coming up and the clinic will be closed they really encouraged us to take an at home pregnancy test. My first blood test is Dec. 24th and my second is Dec. 31st. Those will give us the numbers to see how well they are doing, but for now a positive sign would be just such a huge answer to prayers. One or two it doesn't matter as long as they get a healthy little munchkin. The dr's warned us that there is a 1 in 3 chance that the IP's could end up with two and in that case YAY!!

The actual transfer was really quick and painless. It felt similar to getting a pap with the worst part being my excessively full bladder. It was so neat. We got to watch the dr. inject the precious little embryo's into my uterus and we took pictures of the little spot on the ultrasound machine that looked like a very little grain of rice. What we were seeing wasn't actually the embryo it was an air pocket that the embryologist put on each side of the embryo's so that we are able to see where it is. It's so weird to sit here knowing that I have two little gifts in my body ,however it feels perfectly normal to think of them as the IP's little ones... maybe b/c I've had so long to prepare for it.

Now we just relax, wait and pray... easier said than done...
Thanks everyone for all your support. We all feel very positive about this working. Keep praying!!


  1. Horray!!!!!!!!!! Now your Pupo, Pregnant Until Proven Otherwise!

    Do you plan to be peeing on sticks earlier?

    I'm so excited for you, hopefully we'll be knocked up together and 9 months from now be blogging birth stories,hehehe.

    Have fun in the 2ww (2 week wait), it's a killer, dissecting every little twinge, pain, sensation.

    Good luck!

  2. I like that Pupo!! That's exactly how I feel. I interpret everything even though I know it's almost impossible for much to be attributed to the babies. I got nauseaus last night, but tried to ignore the fact that we were on a very bumpy road and I was in the back seat hahaha. I am REALLY going to try and hold off until the 25th with the pregnancy tests. I think it would be fun to dip the stick while IP's are on the phone with me :D

    I really hope your transfer goes well! It would be fun to be pregnant together!! How many emby's are you guys hoping to do?

  3. Hey !!!! When I read your story I got really exited my transfer date was December 10, 2009 at 12:00 pm.
