Today is day 3 for the embryos and I am officially done taking lurpon injections!!! So happy about that. That stuff keeps me awake all night so I was forced to let the millions of thoughts running through my mind at this point circle around and around and around until finally I got up at 3:45 to go through my instructions from the fertility clinic this week. Low and behold I have a blood draw this morning at 7:45 which I will not be able to make since I am teaching a training class at 8!!! I will have to reschedule for this afternoon....hopefully that will work. It's going to have to. I am starting to freak out a bit and get very nervous. I am happy I have arranged for acupuncture treatments before and after the IVF transfer. hopefully it will help me relax a bit....not sure that is possible though. I have so many feelings running through me right now but the one I most want to feel is relief which I will finally get when we have a positive pregnancy test in a few weeks. I will never be able to express how good that moment will feel. Not that blogging about my fertility shortcomings hasnt been a blast but I have got to move on this chapter of my life ya'll. I will be calling today to check on the status of the embryos sometime today and I pray they have progressed to a healthy looking day 3. I will keep everyone updated. I read this morning (even though I have promised both my IVF nurse and my acupuncturist I wouldnt do research online) that IVF day 5 transfers have higher success rates and that sometimes embryos transferred together can encourage each other to hatch and implant....crazy huh?
