Waiting...

First of all I just want to say thank you for all the support yesterday....after I got my thoughts and emotions together...and especially after reading Sube post, my cycle sister, I realized that I should feel really lucky of the 7 beautiful embryos that we have. Her excitement and happiness is so contagious,and she is right..how can I not feel happy about my 7? After reading her post, I felt like such a heel for complaining/venting about my 7 embryos. And so after my short meltdown, I realized how lucky and fortunate we are. I hope that the 7 beautiful embryos are growing and they are strong and what ever happens I am just happy that we got this far.

Right now we are still waiting to see if we are doing a 3 or 5 day transfer. We got a call from the clinic earlier today and they really didn't give us anymore information. They said to call the clinic tomorrow at 7:30 and we will find out if we will do the transfer tomorrow or get pushed to Tuesday. I asked how many embryos are left and they didn't know...I guess the lab doesn't update them. I am assuming that they are a few good embryos left other wise they would have given us the bad news by now. So I am sitting here patiently..and I will be happy with either day. Both days are fine, mother's day or S's b-day..how can you go wrong.

So I received my first PIO shot last night...I was so nervous about it, but it wasn't bad at all. Maybe icing it for more than 5 minutes help, so by the time S gave me the shot my butt was completely numb. It was kind of funny because we went out last night to celebrate S's birthday and he was drinking a cocktail-which is very normal for us. As we were talking and joking around about our 7 embryos and how they are the coolest embryos in the lab right now we were cracking up and just having a good time. The PIO shot was on my mind all day so I asked him if he read his manual/instructions over and as I finished my question, I zeroed in on his hand holding his cocktail and I started to get scared. He looks at his cocktail and said "maybe I shouldn't be drinking before your butt shot". So just imagine how I got more scared after that. Luckily he did a really good job-I think going to see a jazz show before the butt shot help a ton!

Again, thank you so much for all of the support and kind words yesterday...I am so lucky to have found all of you!

So glad you're feeling better. I'm sending lots of positive vibes to you and those 7 lovely embryos. As for the PIO shot, who knows, maybe the cocktail was what did the trick? Takes the nerves right out of it. Now if only you could have a drink, too!

I'll be pulling for your 7 little embryos! I'm so happy that you are feeling better, and I'm kinda jealous that I didn't go out to enjoy some jazz last night. I also hate those shots in the ass. I think your ice idea is good. I've been sleeping on my heating pad all night long. I don't think I'm supposed to do that, but it makes my butt feel better so I don't care. Ok, enough about me, good luck tomorrow!

I always put the PIO in a dixie cup of really warm water for about 5 minutes before the shot. It went in a little easier that way.

Good luck tomorrow (or tuesday)!
