Who has 9 embryos still growing? ME! Who has a 5 day transfer scheduled for Tuesday at 9:30? ME!
I got the call yesterday at the Little Guy's baseball game that all 9 embryos were still growing and were all 4 cells! How awesome is that? I was told that I'd get a call this afternoon with an update and a schedule for transfer. Since it was 4:00 and no one had called me yet I called the answering service. Someone called back within 5 minutes. She explained that it just takes longer to get through all the calls on the weekend. Ok, then tell me that on Saturday. I was expecting an update when I always get updates, between 1:00 and 3:00. But who really cares about all that when I have 9 embryos waiting for me, right?
I never thought I'd be here again. I never thought I'd have another transfer of an embryo. I never thought I'd ever really have another shot at getting pregnant. And now I do. Wow.
I hate the time they gave me, though. That means that I will be fighting some major traffic Tuesday morning. I was hoping for 11:00 or later but it is what it is and I'm not going to complain. I'm going to get my butt out the door by 7:00 (since I have to check in at 9:00) and I'm hoping that 2 hours is enough travel time. I might change my mind later but for now, I will leave at 7:00.
Can you believe this is really happening??
