Tom, ready to get this startedCheeeeeesy smile!
The doctor came in and gave us info about our embryos. He said my age surely had a factor in how great the eggs were. We had the talk of how many. I stressed that this is our only shot at this. He said it was a no brainer that we should put two in, as long as we are fine with twins! He said there is a 1 in 50 chance that one embryo will split to two and we would end up with triplets. We signed the final papers and were ready to get those babies inside me.
The actual transfer was a breeze. The doc set everything up and got the catheter in place. The ultrasound tech said I got the "Best Lining of the Day" award. It was really neat watching it all on the ultrasound machine. Then, the embryologist brought our little ones in. We watched the screen for a white flash, which was them releasing. It was such a defining moment in our life. We even got a picture! I couldn't get our scanner to work, so I took a picture instead.
We were jumping with joy-not literally, of course-afterward. We have such a great chance at this working. Its hard to not get ahead of ourselves. I was able to get up right away and use the bathroom. We drove home and have been relaxing ever since. Now, we wait.
Peanuts-Please make yourselves at home. I promise to keep you warm for the next 9 months. We are absolutely in love with you and cant wait to bring you into our family. -Mama
