IVF # 2- Transfer

So I'm on the couch, already bored with bedrest. One more day to go. I did pass the first few hours reading lots and lots of blogs which I thoroughly enjoyed. Now I'm looking to cause trouble but can't find any to cause. B is watching me with an eagle eye. I will be good-I don't have a choice. Today they transferred 5; yes that would be 5 embryos. The doc asked me how many bedrooms we had!!!!! We had 2 perfect 8 cell embryos and then a 7, 6 and 5 cell with minimal fragmentation. They definitely won't have 8 to freeze. They may have none so I think the Dr Ding-Dong was going for it. My hopes are pinned on my 2 perfect embies. Surely at least one of them will burrow into my lining. I went to acupuncture after the transfer. Per protocol. I don't feel anxious right now. (I usually do). We've done our best. My friend just made a comment that my home town in Ireland is probably visible from space because my Mother has lit so many candles in so many churches. There are masses being said for B and I at several churches around the town EVERY DAY!!!!!! The priests must think we've commited some henious sin!!!!!! My Mother is so sweet. She's not praying for a grandchild. She is praying for something that she knows will make B and I happy.

Holy Night FIVE transferred... verrry aggressive (WONDERFUL).

I hope you get twins.

And there will be another candle lit for you tonight.

Sounds awesome. Hopefully one of those perfect embryos will stick around (or two even).

Try to enjoy your bedrest (I had a tough time with mine too).

FIVE!

That has to be your new lucky number . . . !!

Send B out for a few cheesy movie rentals . . . hang in there . . . bedrest only sounds fun when you're busy.

FIVE- holy cow. You are a brave woman. I transferred 4 in the PG that was the Cutie Pie, which is the most I've ever transferred.

Bed rest sucks. Its just so hard on your back and no matter how much you shift around, it doesn't make the back feel better.

My thoughts will be with you.
FIVE!!!! I hope the two good ones take, what a bleasing that would be!
I'll be checking back hoping to hear about morning sickness and two lined pg tests!

Five -- I'm officially impressed. Fanning-myself-impressed.

Lighting a virtual candle for you, too, my dear. Maybe not quite the conflagration your mum has going, but hey, she IS your mum!

Consider some candles lit over here as well. I hope at least one of those FIVE gets nice and cozy.

Lighting up my neck of the woods with candles for you, too. I am glad your mom is so supportive.

I can confirm that here in Sweden the lights are shining, I think it's your moms candles. I am very glad to read that everything looks so good. Not only for you (I am thrilled though for you) but it also gives me hope. I am very confused right now about what will really happen to me in the future...I mean you never know...but how my next year will look like babywise?? Will follow your blog though and wish you all the luck in the world.
