It’s a really special day for us. We hopefully just made another baby! For the past 10 days the wife has been taking her estrogen and added progesterone a week ago and today was the big transfer day. I was kind of nervous I’ll admit, while the wife was relaxed which is weird because it’s normally the other way around but I’m glad she wasn’t stressed out. Our clinic works with three doctors and you never know which one will be here so we were both thinking how great it would be if we got the same doctor that did the transfer the last time and hell yes it was him, also the same nurse as last time, I was thrilled, I take that as a good sign. Also the last time the magic happened on a 9th just as today, it’s weird and amazing!
So anyway, we waited about 10 mins before being called. Had to sign a few paper works and then it was time for me to get dressed into my super sexy sterile jumpsuit, along with a mask, hat, the whole shebang. I snapped a picture of how ridiculous I looked. One day when my kids ask how babies are made I’ll show them the picture and tell them you have to dress like that first!
Once in the room I held my breathe as I new they were thawing our little 5 days blastocyst and it was a delicate process. I was finally able to relax when doc Mark came in to say it went well and the embryo looks great. A few minutes later the transfer was done and everyone was wishing us good luck. Blood draw is in 2 weeks and I’m just remembering again how the 2 weeks wait is the worst. I don’t know if I’ll be able to get her to take an early test. With Captain we never took the test because the wife wasn’t really feeling positive about it and after a year of seeing only ‘not pregnant’ on tests she just wanted to wait for the blood results. It would be great to see 2 lines this time though. I’m trying to keep my cool and not think to much about it, we had a lovely lunch and just enjoyed being together but now I can’t stop thinking about everything babies and how it’d be a great Christmas present. Please send us good vibes and a little patience for me to survive these couple of weeks.
