Transfer went very smoothly today. Since our transfer was not until 1:15, we had a leisurely morning. I check in at 11:30 and got blood drawn and then went upstairs to get ready for pre-transfer acupuncture. It was so relaxing and meditative.
The only stressor of the day was my bladder. I chugged a bunch of water before acupuncture and thank goodness the nurse let release some because I had about 45 min until transfer after my session.
At 1:15, Dr. Gustofsen came in and prepped me and did a quick trial run with the catheter and the embryologist wheeled in the "embryo wagon" which is like an incubator that premies are in. She showed us our perfect little blastocyst on the screen. She said that it had survived the thaw 100% and that the embryologist that thawed it said it was one of the prettiest he has seen. It was beautiful to see!
Dr. G seemed to have a little trouble navigating my cervix and the u/s tech was really pushing down on my bladder, so it was pretty intense there for about 5 minutes. But I think he got the embryo where he/she needs to be my uterus. I was so happy to have this part over and am not ashamed to say that I did take advantage of the bedpan because had 30 minutes of post transfer acupuncture and I needed to be able to relax.
