It's done! It's finally happened and I have two embryos in me.
The transfer went well. The doc offered to transfer three instead of two since only one was a blast and there were two others that looked good but had not become blasts yet. We decided only to go with two. She said that there was a 1 percent chance of triplets which is low, but I don't want to risk it. The best one and the second best one went in and I think those are our best chances any way. They will watch the others (five others as one more fertilized) through tomorrow and freeze all that make it to blast.
I feel confident about my decision. The doc told me that with two, we have a 65 - 70 percent chance and if we add in the third, it goes up to a 75 percent chance. That was not a big enough increase to me to justify risking triplets. I'm operating on the fact that the donor eggs are good and likely to work. If it was my eggs, I'd be more open to putting in more.
The transfer was comfortable. I did not have to have full bladder. I have read about others having a full bladder during this procedure so I was expecting that but they didn't require it. I wonder why?
I'm on bedrest for 48 hours. I have my lap top, ipod, and 5 chick lit books (easy to read). I think I will be able to make it.
Thanks for your support. My blood test is on August 6 - a week from Wednesday. I know that seems like it is right around the corner but surely it will drag on and on and on...
