Today could have been a disaster, but it turned out just perfect. Gavin slept well and woke up feeling okay. There is something still off about him..he has a low fever and was tired all day..but no more vomit. He ate and drank normally. I was very thankful to not have to worry about my baby when I had to worry about my other babies.
The morning flew by and we headed downtown around lunchtime. We made awesome time and had plenty of time to go to Sprinkles. It was literally directly across from the parking garage. We got black and white, red velvet, banana and smores. :)
We got to the surgery center about 10 minutes early and I peed and then started to drink my bottle of water. One transfer, I didnt have a very full bladder and it took a while for Dr. M to get the cathedar in. I didnt want that to happen this time. Its one of the few things I have control over.
They were running about 20 minutes behind. My bladder was feeling fuller by the minute and the nerves really kicked in. They finally called my name and I got suited up, signed papers and Dr. M came right in. Our first 2 embryos thawed beautifully and we still have 4 on ice. So, so thrilled about that!
I told them my bladder was about to explode and they took us right back. The transfer was the fastest and easiest yet. They had a newer screen where I could watch everything, so that was nice. There is something very special about knowing the exact moment life enters your body. I squeezed Toms hand tight...partially bc I was in horrible pain. ;)
They wheeled me back and I had to lay flat for 30 minutes. About 5 minutes in I gave up and asked for a bedpan. Not my finest moment, but I felt so much better.
We got in the car and I made my pregnancy beta test for next Friday, my birthday, at 10am. I realized that Id be pregnant on my birthday for 2 years in a row. I like that. :) Ill probably test the day before I go in. We will see!!
I spent the rest of the night hanging around, playing with the boys and relaxing. I am wiped out from the stress of the day and am looking forward to sleeping tonight.
I really hope these two cupcakes decide to snuggle in and hang around. We promise to make it worth their while.
Thanks for all of the comments, emails and texts. And thank you iPhone, for documenting our day.
