And now we wait

In brief: 2 transferred. Good numbers - on paper.

This afternoon 2 embryos were transferred, the word 'gems' was used to
describe them.
Amazingly, another 4 embryos were of high enough quality to freeze.
Wonderful - as long as I ignore our zero thaw survival rate so far.

This has been a great cycle so far, nice crop, good maturity rate,
excellent fert rate, quality embryos.
On paper, it looks good. After last time, I was thinking the end was
near - for medical reasons. After this time, I think we could go on
for a little longer - finances permitting. A two-edged sword, because
perhaps I'll only turn out to be wasting my energy so much longer. But
I'm trying not to think that far ahead.

I felt relaxed for the whole hour they made my lie down after the
transfer. After that, I got behind the wheel of my car, and any
pretense of calm flew out the window as I negotiated early rush hour
traffic. Surely, that amount of stress is toxic. Hardly even matters
what the science says. Let the fretting begin!

A whole two weeks to go before I'm invited for a beta test.

Fingers crossed.

And I wholly agree with you about rush hour traffic. :)

"gems" - do you mind if I keep repeating that for a while?

Awesome! The news just couldn't be any better. All parts are crossed hoping for even more awesome news in 14 days (or sooner, if you decide to pee on a stick)!

Ok, commenting has been a little wonky... but it seems to be doing better again tonight so let me say hurrah for good on paper! Since that's all you can know for now anyway, I might as well give it a thumbs-up.

You're right, though - it is a two-edged sword knowing there's a chance if you *just* try again. For now, I'll just hope you don't have to.

Fantastic news. It will be a long, long 2 weeks. I am so very glad to hear such excellent reports.

Having so many frozen must feel wonderful, just in case you decide the baby(ies) in you now want more siblings...

And what a beautiful way to describe the embies. They ARE gems. Glad you had some left to freeze!
Its a rollercoaster ride with cycling. But what an exciting and special time, at the same time. :)

Hoping that good on paper will rightfully translate to good-inside-of-Lut=baby.

Anxiously waiting for your next news.
