I'm so excited for you! Lots of fertile wishes for you this week!

I think it is pretty normal to have some mixed feelings. But DH is going to be with YOU for the transfer, not with anyone else.

My dh told me, the donor and he each contributed ONE CELL! The rest of the 7#14oz of dd was all due to me :) I'm the one who nourished her for 9 months inside and now another 9 months on the outside.

Sounds like a great ER and I'm sure ET will go well... can't wait for your good news!

How exciting! I think the range of emotions is all normal. When the dr. handed me the picture of the 'embie blast' they transferred, it did cross my mind for a split second, that my dna was not a part of this. But now, since I am PG, I KNOW I am a part of this baby:) So, once the embie(S) are inside you, all those doubtful feeling will just disappear:)

Congrats! I am on the same schedule as you, we are transferring tomorrow. Our donor produced 8 eggs and as of yesterday we had 4 fertilized. We are transferring all 4. This is the donors 5th cycle and all previous ones have resulted in pregnancies. We also have the pg test scheduled for march 11th. The dreaded wait begins tomorrow! Good luck!

Until you transfer, you can have all the margaritas you want, right?

Your DH is right, it's 1 cell and your body is doing the rest. Weird feelings are certainly normal, I had plenty all thru the pregnancy. Now that Sebastian is here, he's all mine...he just looks like Hubby!

Hi! The transfer went well, I guess (hard to be positive). We ended up with 5 embryos and decided to transfer 3. I just read some other posts and am now nervous because I didn't have a full bladder. I don't think I had a full bladder for any of my other transfers either. My dr said the ultrasound was cloudy, but he seemed to act like he had the catheter in the correct spot, but now I am worried.ugh! I did acupuncture before and after. This is truly my last chance, I am so scared! How was everything going with you?

Totally absolutely 100% relate, sweetie!!! I want that baby so bad though, and I know this is the only way. I figure that I own that egg! It was my life's savings that paid for it and I'm the one who will be pregnant and give birth legally to this child. I'm focusing on those things. Hugs to you!

Crazy08,
How did it go today? How many did you end up transferring and what was the quality?? With that many eggs, I'm sure you had some awesome embryos!! :) here's to hoping March 11 gets here fast!!
