today i had my second transfer, 2 embryos put back. these are our last two. i am thankful both made it through the thaw. during the transfer, after i watched both slide down the catheter into my uterus, apparently one stayed behind. my doctor said that must be a boy. (they are microscopic so what we saw was only the fluid they are in.) they were able to reinsert the equipment and deliver the stubborn guy back in there and they told me the statistics are no different when this happens. so we are looking at 60%.
i am home resting all cozy on the couch, brian fetching things for me. i just watched “the girl with the pearl earring”. he is off to get a few groceries from whole foods for dinner tonight and stuff for the new few days. i am going to limit my after work social plans and get as much rest as possible. this morning i had acupuncture and she did the basic ivf needling to increase blood flow to the uterus, and she also needled my third eye for stress management. i’m feeling good.
i feel better prepared to embark on this 2ww than i was last time. i have more knowledge, more empathy and more compassion with myself and this process. when i remember what they last two years have been like, i don’t know how i did it. but i would do it again in a heartbeat. it is all part of the process.
