One aboard

I now have one excellent blastocyst floating around inside of me for the time being. Out of the 7 thawed, there was one excellent blast, which is all I wanted to transfer anyway. There was another fair blast and a good morula, and everything else was rated as poor. All except for the excellent blastocyst were discarded. The transfer itself went well, relatively speaking. The new digs for the clinic are quite deluxe, too.

I ran into a colleague there. Ha! She didn't have her husband with her, so I think this must mean she had an IUI. They make you bring an escort if you do any procedures that involve drugs.

Tomorrow, they are having a big 20th anniversary open house, and the nurse said they are expecting more than 1,100 people. We're planning to attend.

I wish I were going. I actually have a belly to show now.

Congrats on the blast transfer! Hope that little one grows and sticks.

Good luck to you!


P.S. I'm likely closing my old blog down, but you may find me over here for now, my old Livejournal:

Take care

Eee. Exciting. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. The wait has to be more bizarre the second time around.

Fingers crossed.

So pleased for you, and hoping for a positive outcome!

Don't know if we're going today--I had RSVPed yes and planned on it until I ran into one of my favorite IVF team nurses (Jan) last weekend and she told me over 1000 were expected. We don't generally do big crowds, though my 3-year-old son is a huge fan of the guy they've got doing music. I think we'll decide based on weather and mood. We've been joking that they need to have color-coded nametags to identify specific reproductive pitfall, you know, maybe gray for over-the-hill eggs, etc.
