Transfer Day At Last
Hope was almost ready to cleave again before we transferred it to my uterus. Right now its 5 cells and two of them are huge so the embryologist was really happy and figured it would be at least 8 by the end of the day if not 9. We had Assisted Hatching to help with the implantation.
I've already told J that I think Hope is a boy. Why? Well the other embryo we transferred in October, JR, was developing much quicker and girls develop quicker than boy. Since this one is behind a bit I'm betting its a boy and just as stubborn as its father who was born 3 weeks late!
This transfer was more difficult than the one in October. Dr. B did this one. I've seen him off and on over the last 15 months and of late Dr. C. more so. Dr.B and Dr.C. were both doing retrievals today and I was the only transfer.
After two speculums (the first one was too short and he couldn't find a good position), and the catheter bending when it shouldn't Hope was finally in place.
Now I just need to find a frame for Hope's embaby photo.
May all of you trying for babies get pregnant soon and carry to full term.
Nicki I'm thinking of you and Kenna always. You inspire me.
