We have Superstars!

We had our transfer this morning and it went great. I was a mess going to the Hospital. We had to leave by 6am and I tried to sleep on the way but I couldn't stop thinking about the what ifs.

When we got there, we got checked in and it was busy. We have always been there very early, so it was a different experience. The nurse was worried about my high blood pressure and I told her it would go down as soon as we got some good news. The embryologist came in next and said she had a picture of our blasts. I blurted out "so they made it?" and then proceeded to bawl. I mean big heaving, holy cow I can't stop, someone get me a tissue bawling. She told me I needed a hug and gave me a hug and then showed us our frosties and everything else went off without a hitch. It was a huge sigh of relief when she left. I think she was confused as to why I was so crazed but when she looked in our shart, she saw the loss of the 4 embies at thaw last time. She understood then completely.

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. It has been a ride and should be an interesting 2 weeks :)

Scared out of my mind

I have been sick. Mucho sick. Dizzy and a horrendous headache since I started Estrace. It normally is not like this with the estrogen. Today my NP changed me over to patches and I start those tomorrow. I hope that will help.

In other words, I am scared to death of what Thursday will bring. Because we have blasts waiting for us, they won't thaw until we get there and then we will find out if they made it. All I can think about is our 4 embies dying last time. I could puke anytime I think about that. It is going to be a hard, hard day.

In other news, we are bringing home a baby of a different kind this week. Wednesday morning I pick up our new kitten. We haven't named her yet, but here is a sneak peak with her shelter picture.

Any encouragement or name ideas for the kitten would be much appreciated!

Ding Dong the Cysts are Gone!

FET# 2 is now a go. I went in for my u/s Monday and found out that the nasty cyst making my estradiol too high is totally gone. Taking the bcp 3x/day seemed to do the trick.

Friday I go in for a lining check and then it should be next Thursday. Thank you all for your support and good thoughts. I couldn't make it through without you.

Back in the saddle again....

Tomorrow I call into the DR's office with CD1 and schedule my cd3 sonogram and bloodwork. It feels weird to be doing this again, to be honest. Last night I kind of melted down on Tyler when we were going to bed because I was so terrified of our lil frosties not making the thaw. I won't sleep sound until I hear from the lab that they thawed ok. Keep your fingers and toes crossed for us... we will need all the good thoughts and prayers we can get that this FET will go better than the last.
