FET #2 is complete.

Well, we're home...after a hectic and exciting morning! When my phone rang a little before 9am and I saw my RE's number on the caller ID I thought, OH NO, this is NOT good news. They usually don't call until after 11 (transfers are usually done in the afternoon)...so I thought they were going to say that the frozen embryos didn't survive the thaw...

Sure enough, it was a call FULL of good news. They wanted me to start drinking my water at 10, be there by 10:30 and ready for an 11am transfer. AND THEN the nurse tells me that my primary doctor, who we absolutely LOVE, decided to make a special trip into the office just to do OUR transfer. We were so thrilled.

Now for the best news...ALL 3 EMBRYOS THAWED!!! That's 7 out of 7 that survived the thaw for us...WELL ABOVE the odds. We were SO happy and relieved...and my doctor gave us the picture and said they all look TERRIFIC...exactly the way they should look. Hopefully now they're all looking for a warm place to settle in :)

The transfer was a smooth one...the dr. felt it went very well...so now, we sit and WAIT. We both feel really good about this...we are really hoping the third time's a charm.

So now I am on my couch and will not be moving for a WHILE. Feel free to come and visit...I could use the company :) And no matter where you are...talk to these little ones about STICKING AROUND...all of your thoughts and prayers have worked so far and we really, really appreciate it.

Dear embryos,
Mommy and Daddy really want to meet you in 9 months. Get comfy in there, and get ready for all the great food Mommy makes. If you do what Mommy and Daddy want you to do right now, I'm sure Santa will remember to bring you lots of great stuff in 2008 if you bring this happy ending to 2007 to your parents. : )
I'll definatly be thinking of you this week and sending sticky baby vibes. : )

Not that I don't think of and pray for you and Frank every day, but I'm praying extra hard for you guys now. My fingers and toes are crossed. Third time's a charm!

Keep your head up and think positive thoughts. Keep talking to those three little embryos!
