Transfer

When we arrived at the RE's office on Saturday morning...we learned that they had a "slight issue" with one of the retrievals earlier in the morning and they were now behind. Now, normally, I wouldn't mind...but I had a full bladder that just wasn't hearing it. I ended up having to empty it and start all over again. When we met with the RE we learned that 3 of our 4 embies had stopped growing. We had one grade 1 eight celled embie left. We transferred that little one and are now hoping for the best. I've never even had an 8 celled embie, so I'm hoping this little one decides to stick around for, oh, say, 9 months? Please keep us in your thoughts.

I'm back at work today...and by that I mean back in the office. I've been working from home the last 3 weeks, so I haven't had the 4 hour commute to deal with. I'm dragging right now...and since they say no caffeine...I'm DYING! I need some kind of pick me up or else I'm going to fall asleep here at my desk!

Any suggestions?

That one embie sounds fab. I hope he/she decides to stick around for a while too.

Best of luck sweetie!

Try some dark chocolate. Minimal caffiene, and is heart healthy. Otherwise try a decaf version of what ever you normally drink and see if that "fakes" you out.

Chocolate is a good idea! I read somewhere that eating an apple will also wake you up.

Good luck w your little embie! I tried to fake myself out with sugar and lots of fruit. How about a smoothie?

Good luck! My fingers are crossed for your perfect little embie.

When I need to wake up, I usually go walk around a bit and stretch.

Wishing you the stickiest of sticky embies.

My DR's like to say better 1 great quality embryo then lots of bad quality. Sounds like you have a survivor there. Good luck!

I hope that one embie hangs on tight!

Best of luck to you. Hope that embie is snuggling in for the next 8 months or so!
