9:15am - At the clinic for the transfer. The Embryo report on this day, day 5, was 2 "excellent" blasts and 11 more close behind. We opted to transfer one today. We froze the other and with luck, will freeze more tomorrow. The procedure was very similar to what I read your procedures to be like: Hubby dressed out and went in the room with me. The embryologist showed us a video of the Blast that was to be transfered. And D kept us all in stitches today. My husband won 20 bonus points with me today. He was GREAT! I really admire the staff at this clinic and there was just a lot of good vibes. (I think the big doc was hoping we would transfer two)
11a- back for follow up at the acupuncture clinic and I love this doc. She's the maternal acupuncture doc I always wanted and never knew I did ;-)
3p - home in front of fire and cuddling with dog.
more about blasts here - ofcourse this was not our blast, but it sure did look just like this. with the inner cell mass as such.
We are trying to conceive our first. We have unexplained infertility. We tried naturally for 2 years. In May 08 we started with a fertility clinic. After two failed IUIs we are moving on to IVF because our insurance covers it in this mandated state (and serendipity brought us to this state at the top of 08). This blog begins with the first instructions for our first IVF. you can email me: maproom (at) mindspring dot com
