On March 25th we will be transferring TWO perfect little embryos.
These next few weeks need to fly, I am so anxious!
I started my Estace and Minivelle yesterday after a second baseline appointment this past Thursday. The nurse said my ovaries look much better and my E2 had gone down to 26 from 116 the week before.
After a lot of back and forth, Joe and I finally decided that we would transfer two. I’m worried that I’m getting too set on the idea of twins and I don’t want to be disappointed if it’s not. I’m not someone that really set out wanting twins but I’ve gotten used to the idea. Mostly what swayed our decision was the fact that we have so many embryos and we want to use up as many as possible (with the max of 3-4 kids). Also, I decided that I can’t not do something that could increase our chances, even if just a little bit.
My mom is flying in to help me out while I’m on bedrest after the transfer so that’s an extra bonus! We have two demanding little dogs that I’m pretty sure wouldn’t understand me not being able to do all the things I usually do with them. Plus, I think it will give Joe some peace of mind while he’s at work.
I’m still struggling with work and all this. This is the first full-time job I’ve had in awhile. I am thankful that I have it but it’s added so much extra stress to an already stressful process. My immediate supervisor has been absolutely amazing about everything. I just hate feeling like I’m using IVF as an “excuse.” My supervisor’s supervisor, on the other hand, seems to be annoyed by it. She’s never said anything outright but I don’t know, I just feel like she is. I’m hoping things will settle down a bit soon…like after I’m pregnant maybe? Funny joke?
Tomorrow I’m going to the dentist and getting my hair colored. Thought I’d better get it in while I still can!
