Transfer Day-It's a Beautiful Day!

We had the retrieval on the 21st and have spent the last five days waiting to see how the embryos were developing.
Today, we transferred 2 beautiful blasts. I feel very blessed and lucky. I'm really quite shocked how easy the procedure was. All in all it took about 10 minutes and it was pretty painless. Almost like getting a pap smear. I was a little dissapointed that my RE was not the doctor performing the transfer but he wasn't on the schedule.
The embryologist stopped in to chat and I was clear on how badly we were counting on the chance to freeze some of the leftover embryos. He was very nice but still very vague on the prospects of having embryos make it to freeze. This part of the process is tough. Apparantly, they have their processes and I have mine! I wanted him to freeze everything that wasn't being transferred immediately; but they don't freeze until Day 6. All I could do was convey how important having frosties is to us.
Gosh I really hope this works...............Beta is June 5th
Cycle Tip: If having frosties is important to you, be aggressive, persistent, and vocal. Voice your concerns regarding frozen embryos. Impress that nothing be destroyed or donated prior to contacting you.


  1. Woohoo!! So excited for you...I've got everything crossed. Thanks for the tip on the frosties!

  2. Just read this, so you're already one day into the waiting, but yeah!!!
    I hope the wait goes fast and you have that BFP at the end!!

  3. Congratulations - you are PUPO! Glad you told them how you feel up front, always best if you have stong feelings. I hope you end up with some frosties, and a couple in the oven! Good luck

  7. I hope you're doing fine dear! Your blog is so inspiring. I had so many thoughts on my mind before de ivf. It’s much easier for men to accept this. It will be their child, so why should they worry about such things? To be honest, at first I was completely against de ivf. I thought it’s unnatural and I won’t be able to love a baby of another woman. How stupid I was! This procedure was my only chance to become a mother so I persuaded myself to do it. Now I have no regrets. I look at Sammy and I consider him as my son and no one else's. We had an opportunity to give our doctor list of features we want to see in our donor. We mentioned hair color, nose and face shape, eyes, lips, etc. I should say everyone tells me my son looks like me! We told everyone, even our family, that we had simple ivf. No one can ever tell we used egg donor. Of course I’m grateful to our doctor and that girl, who donated her eggs. I will never forget what they’ve done for us! But I really have no feelings like my son is not genetically related to me or I feel differently toward him. Absolutely no! I love him with my whole heart! As soon as I knew I’m pregnant all my doubts faded away. I carried him, I felt him inside my stomach, I had toxicosis. I sang for him and read fairytales for him, I gave birth to him! He’s my son and only my! We decided we’ll not tell Sammy about egg donor. I think he doesn’t need to know that. I’m his mom and I’ll do everything for him so there will be no need for him to look for donor. Speaking about clinic, we had de ivf in European clinic. We had 2 attempts in general. I’ve got pregnant from the first one. The clinic also offers «packages» with 1 or 5 attempts. So we’ve just chosen «package», which suited us the most. I have no regrets! I'm the happiest mom in the whole world!
