We did it! Embryo transfer has come and gone and we're exhausted...what a day full of roller coaster emotions. Whew!!

How did it go? After a long awaited, much anticipated Valium, things were looking up. Our precious embryologist greeted us with a hug and was thrilled to share the latest about our growing babies. She said that we're going to have several to freeze and won't ever need to go through stims again (bold statement, I know). All 17 of our little guys are still going strong. 9 of them are ahead of the pack and are high grade blastocysts. The other 8 are just a step behind but still look great. We transferred 2 grade A blasts and got to meet them just moments before. Now I know I'm biased but they were simply beautiful...and they're a part of us. Does it get anymore amazing than that?

So, now what? We wait...we pray...we hope. For all I know, this may be the closest I get to being mom. I'm going to cheer these kiddos on with all I've got, make them feel loved and take care of them to the best of my ability. I want this so badly I can hardly stand it.  Stick sweet babies...I love you already!!

So, I guess it's FINALLY true...I'm PUPO.  Our 1st beta is on the 15th!


  1. So excited for you! Crossing my fingers and toes!

  2. wow that is absolutely amazing! typically only 30% of fertilized embryos make it to transfer/freeze - clearly you have some tough little babies! So excited for you! and The 15th is so soon!!!! (haha, although i am sure it will feel like forever to you!). Good luck, cannot wait to hear!

  3. Stick sweet babies...grow grow grow! good luck.

  4. Sending ticky thoughts your way! Take it easy,...if you can :)....
