First of all I want to thank you girls for talking me down off the ledge! I think that my mind is messing with me because it can't understand how simple this whole process has been so far. It needed to freak out just for old times sake. haha
Anyway I had my lining check and it is perfect!!! We are set for a transfer on Tuesday!!! OMG OMG OMG!!
I'm soooo excited! Oh...and get this...I found out that my embryos are actually BLASTS!!! I thought they were 3d this whole time! So not only have I never had an FET, I never ever got even close to having anything resembling a blast transferred!
I hear that it is better...is that true?
OK...now the tricky part, and I would love some thoughts here...so I found out that my embies are stored in 4 different straws...3 of them have 2 embies, and 1 has 3 embies. I want to transfer 3. So here is what they need to know, and they need to know this today...if I have them thaw the straw with 3, and only 2 survive, do I have them thaw a 2nd straw to get a 3rd? But if both of them survive then I will have 4 embies, and they said they can't refreeze one of them....so I would have to transfer 4 or discard one of them, but how the holy crap would I ever be able to do that?? There is noway after everything I've been though that I would be able to kill one of my embryos.
So I had to call DH, and talk to him while he was at work about what to do, and this is what we decided.
We will thaw the straw with 3...if all 3 survive we will transfer them all....if only 2 survive we will stop and just transfer 2...if only 1 survives, we will thaw another straw..if both survive there we will have 3 to transfer...if only 1 survives then we will stop there and transfer 2.
It makes sense, but man is it hard to think about. I mean there are so many what if's in this situation, and how can I decide this before it actually happens??
I think once I found out they were blasts it made me feel better about just transferring 2 because this whole time I had it in my mind that we would transfer 3. Oy! haha
Do you guys think this sounds like the right thing to do?? I know I have to do what feels right for us, but any thoughts would be great!!
18 eggs??? Holy moley!! you are an egg making machine girl!!! I hope you are feeling better today! Drink lots of fluids and try to get some rest. When will you hear about the fert. report?? I'm thinking of you tons!! xoxoxo
Thank you my dear friend for always being my voice of reason, and also letting me know that it's normal to freak out every once in a while!! I totally understand wanting room service after your transfer...you deserve it!! My hotel is actually a courtyard, and we have a full restaurant on site. We don't do room service at ours, but you can call down and order it, and then just pick it up, and go back to your room. If you want me to look for rates for you I would love to help you out. If it changes your mind, my discounts are usually $39.00 a night. PM me if you want to talk about it! Just putting it out there for ya hun! So you get to stay in town for your SnS's and then what day are you flying out? I sure hope you have a laptop with you because I wont be able to deal with no Katie connection while you are out there!!! xoxo
Thanks for the support sweetie! I still keep expecting there to be more to this whole FET thing..My brain is messing with me!! I can't believe you are already talking about baby #2!! That is soooo exciting!
Yay for your first appointment with the obgyn going perfectly!!! March 6th seems sooo far away!! I love how you got the nickname Ruby!! Sooooo cute! I know I say it all the time, but I am just so excited and happy for you. You are such an amazing person, and you deserve nothing but love and happiness!!
Of course we are having our Oscar party!! haha I can't believe you remembered! I will send you the link to the contest Barry does online if you want to join in and play along. I never win, but it's always a blast! Did you mean your friend wrote the music to Midnight in Paris?? The Woody Allen movie with Owen Wilson, and Rachel Mcadams? That was one of my favorite movies of the year, and they music was incredible!! Wow!! I am soooo jealous. If I ever got to go to the Oscars it would be a dream come true!!!
