In Limbo

We're in the hotel room. I hardly slept last night. I was up at 6 this morning and logged on to the webcam at the pet hotel so I can watch my two little dogs play with each other and snooze in their designated room. They actually have a flat screen TV up on the wall in there that runs doggie cartoons to entertain them. Or maybe it's just to shield the noise of other barking dogs.

Anyway, this morning, we wait. The RE is going to call to let us know whether the transfer will be today or tomorrow. I guess she won't know until the embies are thawed. She said once they are thawed, she hopes she will be able to tell right away which are the best 3. If she can make that determination, we'll transfer early afternoon today. If she can't, then she will culture them overnight and it will be tomorrow.

My DH got up early this morning too and said he had transfer dreams all night. Dreams that didn't make sense but had to do with technicalities of the procedure. Last night at dinner in the hotel restaurant, he was asking me all kinds of questions about the embies and the transfer and such. This is really the first time he's been so interested. Finally!

Anyway, we wait. But I am excited and appreciate musicmakermomma's blow-by-blow account of her transfer yesterday so I'll have some idea what to expect. Now all I can think is: C'mon, embies! Wake up, wake up, wake up!

Good luck with your transfer! Watch some funny movies during your bedrest - there's apparently some study that says laughter is good for implantation. Totally crazy, but I still did it.

Wow...it's really here! Will await the details. And, try to relax. (I know, dumb advice, huh?)
