Five more sleeps...

Not too much to report on from the 2WW front.  Just more waiting.  I started to feel nauseous yesterday but I think it was because I started back at work after having a few days off after the transfer.  The mild cramping I was feeling has all but stopped and I've started to feel bloated today but that usually comes with AF anyway.  In the end who knows???  Only another five sleeps and I'll know the answer!

Otherwise I've been feeling good.  A bit of light cramping for the past couple of days, but nothing today.  My BT is due on Wednesday so I only have another week to wait.  I'm back to work tomorrow but I have training on Friday and then the weekend to keep relaxing!

100% Perfect...

Well our little bundle is in the oven and now the wait starts.  We had a great day yesterday.  All along my greatest concern was going to be defrosting one of the embryos but I shouldn't have worried.  When Patrick, our embryologist said that they only had to defrost one of embryos and it didn't have any cell loss, it was a awesome relief.  We still have one frostie left and we have, as Patrick put it, a 100% perfect embryo! 

Now the hard stuff starts, the 2WW.  Last time BJ had to go away for work in the last week of the 2WW and without him I did start to get a bit down when it came to the end of our wait.  Especially because I had started to bleed heavily two days before the test, and in my heart I knew our little guy didn't stick around.  But this time he has cleared his schedule and will be here.  I've taken off the next three days of work so I can just relax around home and watch DVDs or read, which is another change we've made.  Last time I went back to work straight away so I'm going to enjoy this time off!

It's transfer time...

Well I had my ultrasound on Friday and we are all ready to go.  My lining needed to be around 6-8mm and I'm officially 10.2mm so I'm very happy.  My transfer has been booked for Saturday and we are still only transferring one embryo.  The only concern I have at this stage is will one defrost okay, will they have to defrost both to get one, or will we end up with none.  They were all grade A at freezing so I'm hoping against hope at least one will be right to transfer.  Other than that I'm continuing to remain positive and am actually getting excited!  Bring on Saturday!!!
