One more of my little bubbles stopped growing last night and this morning another was not looking good.
I arrived at the clinic 15 minutes late (you always wait about an hour anyway) and there was quite a commotion as nurses ran around looking for me. When we finally found each other I was instructed to start drinking water as fast as possible and marched off to Dr V for an embryo update with a polystyrene cup in each hand. (I still wasn’t sure what all the fuss was about)
When I got in there Dr. V said that he was really happy that I’d arrived because one of my embies had started hatching and needed a womb pronto! Two of them survived and were doing outrageously well. I rushed off downstairs and donned the sexy white nightgowns and blue smurf booties and was ordered to down another 3 glasses of water.
I rushed into the theatre and about ten minutes later I emerged with two babies-to-be safely tucked away. As I was walking out the embryologist came up to me and told me what excellent embies I have and her final word was “One of them has to stick!” I promised to let her know, and then rushed off to empty the tsunami building in my bladder.
I have decided to call them Harry and Sally – Hopefully one of them will emerge looking like Meg Ryan 🙂
And so we wait.
