Transfer is completed

Transfer was today. The lab said it was a beautiful embryo – 8 cell grade 2. They also did assisted hatching so that it will be easier for the embryo to hatch. I felt like everybody was cheering for us. Such a different experience than it was at the retrieval. I did acupuncture before and after the transfer, we bought a pineapple and I’m eating that, and after the transfer and acupuncture we went to Bur.ger King and had a greasy meal.

The best part of the transfer was watching the ultrasound screen and seeing the embryo being injected into my uterus. It was exactly like other people have described – like a shooting star. It’s not actually the embryo you see, but the liquid the embryo is in.

We’re calling this embryo – the little embryo that could – and we’re praying that this embryo will become our healthy child in 9 months or so.

Beta is in two weeks.
