As I sit here, teleworking from my couch, it still has not sunk in yet that I'm PUPO again. It's such a great feeling as I can be nothing but hopeful. I know that the outcome is not in my control, so I'm just going to believe in the positive which is way better than believing in the alternative.
Yesterday's transfer was perfectly uneventful. We arrived early so I could do a pre-transfer acupuncture appointment with the practitioner who is in the same building as my RE. It's so convenient and relaxing. I actually fell asleep during the appointment and I only woke up because I was snoring a little bit.
Then it was off to the RE's office. Hadn't been there in 18 months and a few things were different, but it felt mostly the same. I finished drinking my water and we were called back right about on time.
I was so happy to hear that they only had to thaw one embryo and that we still had 3 more frozen. RE said that the embryo we were about to transfer looked great. The procedure itself went very smoothly and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that I only had to remain on the table for 5 minutes after transfer. I was complemented on my "perfect" bladder - hahah. I tried really hard to drink enough water ahead of time but not so much that I was super uncomfortable. I never know what to say when docs complement you on body parts, so I just said thanks! I swear the last few times we transferred, I had to wait about 10 minutes before I could get up to use the restroom. That was a welcomed change.
E and I both took a few seconds to reflect on the amazing fact that we could be welcoming another baby into our family 9 months from now. Most couples just get to have sex and then wait, but we have had to jump through so many hoops to get to this point and to even have a chance at this, is incredible.
Beta day is November 11 and I will try my best not to test until next weekend at least. Hoping the time goes by very quickly and of course, if it's not too much to ask, for another happy ending here.
