All Aboard

Sorry I have been quite. It’s been a busy last few days.

Friday they retrieved 12 embryos. By Saturday 10 had fertilized and 7 were dividing like they wanted.  Sunday we got the call that transfer was going to be day 3. I was bummed and spend a few minutes alone crying wondering why I keep making poor quality eggs.  But then Mark reminded me all 7 were still divided and that’s the best we’ve had so far. The transfer was today and we have 1 grade A – 8 cell with no fragmentation and 1 grade B – 6 cell with 20% fragmentation.  Dr C felt much better this cycle and has high hopes for the 8 cell. The remaining 5 were still dividing today but were only at 4 & 5 cells so they are going to let them go for a couple more days to see if they keep dividing. I had acupuncture before and it was so relaxing it was worth it just to relax.  The acupuncturist sold me some tea called “implantation tea” so hell I’ve been trying everything else why not this.  So I don’t know if the Royal Jelly, Cq10 and wheatgrass helped get us a little better quality but we will see.

So All Aboard…………Cho Cho

I might be more excited to go home and sleep in my own bed, love on my pets, make dinners, and work.  My in-laws have been great but home is home. 

I went with my in-laws yesterday to their annual church picnic.  MIL was introducing me to folks.  The 1st couple she introduced me to were in there 70’s.  MIL said “This is my daughter in law Kristi she lives in Nashville. She is up here going through the IVF program at the Grove.” I was like um hello I’m Kristi and yes I am struggling to have a baby. But the lady was so sweet she said “Oh my daughter went through that twice and now she has a beautiful daughter. I said prayers every night and light a candle. So I will add prayers for you.” It’s funny to me how many people my MIL shares our infertility story with. I just know I’ve been the topic of discussion at ladies bridge.  God love her she is sweet as can be.

So I will be back soon and yes I will test at home. So we should know something in about 10 days.
