The embies are home!

Hey, all -- I had my embryo transfer today. We transferred four (count 'em, four!): two 8-cells, one 7-cell and one 5-cell.

The three biggest ones look great (no fragmentation) and the little dude, well, the doc figured it couldn't hurt to put him in, too. The RE is very optimistic and so am I!

Thank you all so much for your support. Now, we begin the worst part of the whole process: the wait! I go for a beta on the Fourth of July -- gotta be a good sign, right?

Hi! Congrats!

I hope you get a bfp...be warned, though, my doc transferred 2 good embies and two duds, his words not mine. I was pregnant with 4, until one miscarried at 11 weeks! My trips are now one and are all perfectly healthy. Intact, they are starting to fight over toys! I gave birth to the, in NYC...Mt. Sinai...impregnated at Cornell.

Best of luck to you,
Laura

Thank you so, so much, everybody! Your good feelings about this are making me feel very positive. Unfortunately staying horizontal (past ET day) hasn't been possible, but I promise I am taking it easy -- I'm moving at the pace of an 80-year-old. My RE says to do what I would normally do, only "easy." (And of course, no aerobics!)

OMG, Laura, I hope DH didn't read your post over my shoulder! :) Were you guys totally shocked?

And Ruth, tell those Duggars to slow down!

Thanks, Laurie, Michelle and Susan!

Laurie, it was a Day Three transfer. Given my age and history, the RE thought it would be best to try all four.

Susan, welcome home! Hope your vacation was great and that you drank some tropical drinks! (The embies and I are sticking to cranberry-and-seltzers these days.)
