I like the number 5!

I think it looks like a fabulous number!! That is how many embryos I have waiting for me right now. Out of the 7 retrieved yesterday, 6 were mature and 5 fertilized. That is an excellent outcome in my opinion. Also, no waiting around to see how they do, I am scheduled for my transfer on Thursday! The day of my dog Jakey's birthday! So its gotta be a good day, right? A fabulous day to get pregnant.

For some details and answers to questions I've gotten. We are transferring them. This is not the same as implantation. They still have to snuggle in tight and hang on once they are put in. This is the only part of the procedure that they have no control over. I have a nice thick lining though, so I'm sure it will be a wonderful cushioned environment that at least one embie will want to hang out in.

As far as how many we will transfer, well we are 99% we will transfer 2, as long as we still have 2 thriving by then. We will see what the doctor recommends. I suspect he will suggest 1-2.

In the mean time, I am doing a progesterone suppository in the morning, and a pill of estrace, estrogen basically daily. This means one thing shoved up my vag in the morning, and one thing shoved up there at night. My vag is going to be a busy place! However, no sex for Mr. W. Sorry babes, doctor's orders! I go in for my beta test to see if I am pregnant on Monday, Nov. 8th. You can count on me to cheat though. I have a thing for peeing on things. Stay tuned!!
