The Good News…

is that my embryo’s haven’t been consumed by the darkness of rolling blackouts.  I got 12 retrieved, and of those 12, 8 fertilised, and of those 8, 7 continued to grow on day 3!  This is moonsbetter than my last retrieval, which resulted in 2 good embies that ended up as an early miscarriage / biochemical PG. 

The even better news is that 2 excellent embies were transferred yesterday, and 5 more excellent embies were put on ice, so to speak.  Now that’s what I’m talking about!

With IVF 1, I was highly stressed at work, and this time, I decided to take 2 days off after my transfer to give these embies the chance they (and I) deserve.  I think I did the right thing.  I am feeling relaxed, positive, and best of all, I have some time to catch up with all of you!

The best news is that Debs is back next week, just in time to alleviate some work pressure in my 2ww.  Yeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaa! And we have an employee, which should take a load off as well.


Besides all that, I have been reading “The Secret”, and one thing that really struck me is this:

You can’t be thinking one thing and feeling another.  If you have bad or negative thoughts, you’ll feel bad too.  The day of my transfer I woke up and said “I have between 6 and 8 embies left today, and that makes me very happy and excited.  And guess what?  I got 7!  Weird, but 100% fact!

I want to mention “The Road Less Travelled” – she is in her 2ww after IUI.  Good luck, many blessings, my friend.  To everyone else in the 2ww, let’s look forward to February being our month ladies! 

(PS: Beta 11th Feb) 🙂

    find that little bed
    and lay down your weary heads
