2DP3DT – Love the Progesterone

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 🙂

  1. AGHHHH! This is such an awesome post to read. And your optimism seems VERY warranted. Sept 19th is also my first real live OB (who is not an RE) appointment, so I will definitely not forget this date. Harvest moon babies! (PS, I have a friend who has triplets and they are adorable. Ya never know!) Can’t wait!

  2. Sending lots of positive vibes your way!! You’re only about 4 weeks past me and I hope you have the same wonderful results that I did. 🙂

    • Thank you! I just re-read your transfer post, do you mind me asking what the cell count was on your 3 day embryos? I see our grading was basically the same. I’m also anxiously awaiting the call on if any made it to freeze today. I’m hoping to get at least one.

      • No, I don’t remember the cell count on any of the 3, just the grading. I remember thinking that was more important, but I don’t know if I just thought that, or if someone actually told me that, or if it picked it up somewhere on the internet. LOL
        I hoped for one to freeze too and got 2. I hope you do too!!
