We're Ready to Launch

You ever notice how an IVF cycle is a lot like the launch of a space shuttle? You plan, you wait, there's an unanticipated malfunction, you reschedule...then you pray they make it.

Well, everyone, my 6 little embies are ready for their shot into space. I just got the call that all 6 are still around, though the nurse had no report as to their quality. She said I am scheduled to transfer 2 tomorrow at 11:45, and freezing the rest will depend on how they look on Monday. Poor little guys. I hate to leave them behind not knowing if they will ever get a chance of their own. I wish they would have told me how many cells they had, but I guess I'll know that tomorrow.

Thank you all for your support. It means so much. I'm focusing all my positive thoughts into my uterus now, where my little astronauts might find safe haven tomorrow.

Six is wonderful! Looking forward to hearing more.

Transfer was the easiest part for me. Not unlike an IUI, in my opinion, over with very quickly.

Emmie - This is great news. I'm so happy for you.
Thanks for your sweet commentary on my Blog. I'll soon post today's discussion with the case nurse, which went much better than yesterday's with the doctor. I don't think he is sperm donor averse, I simply believe he felt frustrated that he wasn't aware of my current status. Mix in a bit of MD ego and you've got a recipe for some angst.
Anyway, keep up the positive thinking. And GOOD LUCK!
