Hanging On - We Are Embie Parents

Posted Apr 23 2009 12:00am
Thanks for the words of wisdom. It seems like some people have known of this happening and had some positive stories to share. I appreciate it.

Yesterday, I spent the entire day in the recliner that DH moved in our bedroom. When I wasn't icing my privates with frozen bags of veggies I was getting babied by my husband and mom. The best thing about feeling like ass is getting babied. Yesterday was the worst, pain wise. I ended up sitting in one place for too long and my butt cramped up. DH had to practically carry me to the bathroom because I had to pee and I couldn't move my leg or bend easily. Every time I peed I felt it sting (I guess from the muscles being used). The pain meds felt like they did nothing.

Today I feel better but still sore. I got up and walked around a bit. My SIL came over and brought me bagles and cocoa and also a frozen homemade dinner. I'm going to spend one more night in the recliner and then tomorrow I will get up some more and do more.

I got the call from the embryologist this morning. She said the eggs successfully fertilized and now they are the beginning embryo stage. They both have the little "bud" on the side which is a pro-nuculi (sp?) and apparently shows that they are doing what they should. I asked if they have started diving yet and she said no, it's too early still. So HOPEFULLY they will begin diving late today or tomorrow to be ready on Saturday morning.

I am holding onto a string of hope that these two will continue to grow and be healthy embies. I really want BOTH to survive and be put back. I will feel sad if we lose one or the other. They are already a part of us. They are the closest we've come to children. Each one has a thread of DNA from each of us and I feel like these are the beginnings of little pieces of us.

Anyways, 3 Day Transfer Saturday at 9am. I take my valium at 8:30 and head to the clinic with a full bladder. I'm not worried at all about the pain or ackwardness of the transfer. The only thing I'm worried about is the health of the embies. I'll be fine, but the embies are fraglie, delicate little snowflakes. I'm confident that Sherry, our embryologist, is doing her best to keep them safe. It will be a miracle if these two hang on for 9 months. So far, I think it's a miracle they've made it this far.

I continue to pray multiple times daily for both of them. I appreciate any prayers you can send our way.
