I can't believe that transfer day has already come and gone! We transferred one or two embabies back home to mama yesterday and I am PUPO (pregnant until proven otherwise). I wore these cute "Hatch and Attach" socks and cut up pineapple to eat when I got home. We are keeping the number of embryos that we transferred quiet, so it is a surprise for family and friends if things work out. We feel so very blessed that our doctor, who is also family, was able to do our transfer for us on 5.23.16.
Our embaby/embabies that were transferred were the most beautiful hatching blastocysts. In the picture you can see them hatching, it's really amazing to think that these could become a little tiny baby!
Today, we got the call that 8 of our embabies were able to be biopsied for PGS testing (Pre-Implantation Genetic Screening), and were then frozen. 8 is an amazing number and I'm feeling very grateful for that. We will get the results in 7-10 days, and I am praying that some of those embryos will have a perfect chromosomal makeup. After our previous miscarriages, it worries me that all or some will come back abnormal, and then I will stress out because the embryo we transferred (it was a fresh transfer not frozen) wasn't tested.
It's 1dp5dt (1 day post 5 day transfer). It is so frustrating that the progesterone suppositories they have you take give you the same symptoms as pregnancy symptoms (sore boobs, cramping, bloating, etc.), so it's really hard to tell if I am having any real symptoms or if it's just the meds. The waiting is killing me. I feel like infertility is a big waiting game and I am not very good at that. However, one of my favorite discoveries was "In the Wait" bible study and I am Fruitful's prayer devotional designed for the TWW (two week wait). I've linked them here for anyone who is interested. Praying that our little blast is getting all cozy in there for the next nine months! In the meantime, I'll be peeing on all the sticks because I can't wait til beta day!
