THAT'S AWESOME!!!! I am SO happy for you. Are you having another HCG blood test next week? I kept forgetting how soon after the blood test you can have an u/s; I've been thinking it's not till 8 weeks. But, perhaps they can do them sooner for someone who's had trouble TTC. You know more about that than me and I'm so glad we have connected. It means a lot to be able to share with someone who has gone through this.

I'm a little worried about the full bladder thing tomorrow, also. For the last 2 days when I've talked w/my RE office they've stressed the importance of coming with a full bladder. I'll just keep telling myself it is SO worth a little bit of discomfort if it allows them to place the embryos in the perfect place!

BTW, the embryologist called today with an update and 3 of the 4 that fertilized have continued to divide. She said the 4th one had a "little fragment" left over and will perhaps not be viable. One embryo looked "beautiful" and was at a 4 cell stage. The other 2 that divided were at a 2 cell stage. We feel certain the doctor will be able to transfer 2, but he did say on Tuesday that we might consider putting back 3. We'll find out tomorrow morning! I'm sorry I have forgotten how many you had transferred and was wondering if you could share that with me again.

You're in my prayers and I'll let you know how tomorrow goes asap. I hope you have a great weekend!
Well, we had a successful transfer! We didn't even have to question the doctors on putting back 3 embryos. When they came in to speak to me before the procedure, they went over how the embryos looked as of this morning and said they would advise to put back 3!

They are growing the 4th one out for a few more days to see if starts looking better. It was either at a 5 or 6 cell stage, but she said it was still very "uneven" or fragmented. Of the 3 we transferred, two of them had reached 6 cell stage of divisioin (they said they like 6-8 cell stage on day 3). One looked very good; they said it was even and on the outer edge it had little things developing that the doctor said help the embryo implant once in the uterus (yayyyy!!!!) The other 6 cell embryo had not divided as pretty as the other. The 3rd embryo we put back was at a 5 cell stage of division and it looked a lot like the 6 cell stage one as far as how evenly it had divided. Oh, btw the embryologist gave us a photo of our embryos!! How cool is that?!?! My DH said most parents have the first ultrasound of their child at 8 or so weeks when the heartbeat is first seen. We have a picture of ours at the very beginning stages of their life!

The doctor started today with another mock transfer to make sure they had the path. After some difficulty even with the ultrasound, they had me empty my bladder. She said my uterus is titled left and back which with my bladder full they felt it was making it harder to pass the catheter. Once I did that, it was smooth sailing! Now, I'm wondering how long implantation takes. I imagine the doctors don't even know for sure. They advised to take it easy over the weekend; not laid up in bed, but don't go running a marathon either. lol

I can't tell you how happy and excited we are. If I don't hear from you this weekend, I'll be looking out for an update on Monday/Tuesday about your blood test. Have a wonderful weekend & take care :wave:
Littlebo congratulations for surviving the first 2 days of the 2ww. I had symptons right after transfer as well very sore bb no nasuea but super tired. I started to worry when they went away as the trigger shot left my system. I did hpt starting at 8 days after my transfer and got a positive every day until my beta(I know a bit obsessive) and my number at 12 days past my transfer was 257. Below is a description of how it works in a 3 day transfer.
**this is what happens in a 3dt :

**transfer day
1dpt ..embryo is growing and developing
2dpt... Embryo is now a blastocyst
3dpt....Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day
4dpt.. Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining
5dpt.. Implantation begins, as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining
6dpt.. Implantation process continues and morula buries deeper in the lining
7dpt.. Morula is completely implanted in the lining and has placenta cells &
fetal cells
8dpt...Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood
9dpt...More HCG is produced as fetus develops
10dpt...More HCG is produced as fetus develops
11dpt...HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on
This was super helpful for me and I hope you can use it. I am glad that you have things to do to keep you busy it is so hard not to obsess over each sign and syptom. I have my fingers crossed and am praying for a fast 2ww.
Hey Ladies! I hope everyone is doing well. Just got through reading your updates and I'm extremely happy for you both.
Working overtime has kept me from checking the board as much as I'd like. Also, I've not had too much going on. But, things will start picking up soon. I started the Lupron shots last Thursday on CD 21 and will go for a baseline u/s when AF arrives which hopefully will be end of this week or first of next. I'll start estrogen patches the day after my u/s to prepare my uterus for our frozen embryo transfer. Yeah!
Jill, I really hope that you'll be able to enjoy your pg more. Of course, I know I will feel the same way as you when I'm able to get pg. When you've wanted and waited for something like this so long, it's only natural to fear the unknown and worry about the "what ifs".
Tinkerbell, you've had a really good stim and I certainly wish you the very best with your transfer. I can't wait to hear about your retrieval and how they fertilize.
I hope we all have a great week and lots of baby dust :)
