I can’t believe how beautiful my embryos looked. Lets compare a little:
(Nov 2012) IVF#1 – Transferred 2 embryos, a 6cell grade 3 and a 5 cell grade 3, used fresh specimen – ended in a BFN
(April/May2013) IVF#2 – Transferred 3 embryos, an 8 cell grade 2, a 6 cell grade 2, and a 4 cell grade 1, used frozen specimen – ended in BFP but MC at 9.5 weeks
(Sept2013) IVF#3 – Transferred 3 embryos, an 8 cell grade 1!!, a 7 cell grade 2, and a 4 cell grade 1, used frozen specimen – these are PERFECT babies! And they were all hatched prior to transfer! My chances are tremendous right now and I am so excited for the test on the 19th (seems like a lifetime!).
What am I going to do for the next 10 days? At least 8 of them I have to work, that will keep more than half of my day busy so that’s a plus.
The progesterone is starting to take it’s toll on me, thanks progesterone… I am so tired and the boobs are starting to grow and last night/this morning I have a gross sick feeling. I do not symptom spot because Progesterone has some big side effects with me, always. I also do not test at home because HPTs are my enemy. I’ve never gotten a true positive on an HPT, EVER, so I refuse to take them other than to test that the trigger worked. Even after I became pregnant with BOB I refused to take one. It’s a superstition and it’s not a bad thing.
Some interesting facts for the day of my first beta: Sept 19th is the 1 year anniversary of this IVF blog. Sept 19th is a full moon. Sept 19th is not only a FULL moon, it is also the HARVEST moon. Babies, you have a lot of cool things happening on the day I get to find out if I am pregnant, so make us proud! Dig in deep and get cozy!
Alright babies, settle in…this is going to be a long and amazing ride! BOB is watching over us 🙂
