Here We Are

51 shots
1 month birth control
1 semen workup (for Robert obviously)
1 mock transfer
2 rounds antibiotics
1 HIV etc test (for each of us)
6 vaginal ultrasounds
4 estrogen blood draws
1 surgery (ER)
1 ET
and roughly $500 (so far)

Here I find us in the two week wait. This is the scariest part of it all. In just one short week I will have my blood results. Positive or Negative.

We transferred two embies. One Grade B and one Grade D. The Dr said that the majority they transfer are C's and D's. So I know we had at least one really good one. We had no babies left to freeze. This actually comes as a huge relief to me, because if you can remember I struggled with this decision BIG TIME! I'm glad that God chose it for me. It also means though that if this doesn't work we have exhausted our IF coverage. We are not going to worry about that now though.

Bedrest was pretty miserable just like I thought it would be. The worst part was my back. It was killing me by Tuesday morning. They tell you have to lay on it too, and my cute husband was on back patrol. He would keep coming in there and making me turn on my back. I kept occupied with the magazines and movies and I did pick up Twilight. I am on chapter 8 and plan to read more today. So far it's good, but I'm still waiting for it to get really good. Robert made me breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday. My MIL stopped by yesterday and brought some stew. Robert was probably happy he didn't have to cook for me anymore lol.

I am currently 3dp5dt. For those that don't know the terminology that is 3 days past 5 day transfer or 8 days past ovulation in a normal cycle. I am already so anxious to test, but I will wait it out. Keep the prayers coming. We appreciate them!

I'm so excited and anxious for your 2ww to go by quickly! :) Congrats on transferring 2 embryo's... sounds like you guys have done great with all of this IVF!
I'm glad you didn't have to decide what to do with the other embryo's... I know that is a huge relief.
Stay well rested and I hope your back gets better!

There's nothing left to do but pray at this point! But that's somewhat of a relief to you after all that you've been through in the past month! I will be praying for you!!

I have written in bold letters on my dry erase board on our refrigerator "GOD IS IN CONTROL" and I have to keep reminding myself of that for personal reasons! Hang in there girl... just a few more days and I am positive that you will be the happiest girl in the world! =D

Lots of love! XOXO
