Embryo Update: Day 2

Photo of my morning injection of progesterone.  I have to say that the shot initially doesn't hurt but by night time my arse was aching!  Okay the right butt cheek is still sore so I can only imagine a pair of hurting cheeks come tonight since the left side got injected this A.M.

18 gauge needle to draw the progesterone out and a 1 1/2 inch 22 gauge needle to give me the shot.  So glad its not the 1 1/2 inch 18 gauge for the shot!

Note the bottle of used needles behind the prescription box?  Yes, we've now gone through that many needles with the injections for Project Baby.

Good news today on the embryo.  Embie made it through the night!  YAY!  Embie is now 5 cells at the second day and a grade A embryo.  Dr.C. called me with the news and said its a beautiful looking embryo and we are good to go for a transfer tomorrow.  I could hear the glee in my doctor's voice.  I'm so excited too.

Tomorrow our trip out to Seattle is going to be interesting with the bladder.  I have to insert the prometrium capsule 2 hours before the procedure.  30 minutes before the transfer I have to empty my bladder and proceed to drink no less than 24 ounces of water and no more than 32 ounces in a 30 minute period so that my bladder is full again before the procedure.

Oh and the Viaduct is going to be closed so we have to leave earlier to get to Seattle.  Earlier than we had planned since I know there aren't any decent rest rooms along the interstate.

Wish us luck.
