May the Luck of the Irish bring our Bajingo BFPs in March 2013 - TTC #1 in our 30s - Page 4

pitch, tomorrow, the doctors will transfer back 2 of the best embryos from the 14 and then I wait until April 10 for a pregnancy blood test which gets repeated on April 12 to make sure the pregnancy hormones are increasing.  After tomorrow's 9 am transfer, I am on bed rest the rest of Saturday and all of Sunday. I can hardly believe this is happening!

Two beautiful embryos were transferred this morning. We have 11 to freeze because one of to 14 didn't survive overnight. My husband and I cried as we looked at the photo of our 4 celled babies. Laid at the clinic for an hour and now we are on our way home. Dr. Dodds gave me a prescription for estrace in addition to the prometrium tablets I have already been taking. Now the bedrest for the rest of the weekend and waiting for my beta on April 10 to find out if I am pregnant.

Oh Lilac, how wonderful and exciting!!  I'm sending lots of baby dust your way---here's hoping those TWO embies stick!  I hope you get some rest and pamper yourself in the next few days.  You deserve it after all the work you've done to get this far.

Can I just say that strict bedrest is really hard! My back started to hurt by late evening. I don't usually lay on my back for hours. All I could do was get up for the bathroom. Today I can change positions but still need to be horizontal.

Happy Easter! I hope my embryos are growing well inside of me. DH is finally awake. I am hungry but I have to wait for him to make me some food. I asked for scrambled eggs, toast, and some veggie sausage patties.

Hope everyone else's Easter i a great one! Is any one else doing something special?

RosieL I think some bedrest after embryo transfer is normal for all ivf, but different doctors seem to do different amounts. I am glad tomorrow I can get up and around some, but still resting when I need it. I am lucky this is spring break. Definitely not ready to be moving around at school yet.

birdie I am thankful for my smartphone and wifi. Been reading, playing an online drawing game, and talking to friends on the phone. I am definitely thinking baby thoughts!

Sending you lots of sticky baby vibes Lilac! dust.gif   Was the transfer painful?  Sounds like you've been doing great!

JustJenny, the embryo transfer was basically painless. I felt pressure like a pap smear for a few seconds and then within minutes it was over. It was amazing how fast the transfer went. The egg retrieval was more involved and I think I probably could have used more pain meds for that because it hurt. The egg retrieval was "conscious sedation".
