post #250

Transfer went really, really well. I think that’s the first time I have ever been able to say that.

My dr was great – sat down in my “pre-op” room with me and said the things I needed to hear after yesterday’s really difficult laminaria placement.

I don’t have much to say…other than 2 Valium are so much better than 1. I suppose you might want to know that all 3 blasts survived the thaw and were doing what it is the embryologist expected and hope for. So all three were transferred.

Oh…and I will fly in and out on Monday for my grandmother’s funeral. I’m just going to try to take it as easy as possible.

  1. Fabulous news, Mrs. Hope, especially after the laminaria. And great news about those embryos — you make good ones.

  2. When do you go back?

    I am so hoping and praying for you!! Stick little frosties!!!

    As for Grandma, I hope you take it easy and I will think about you on Monday.


  3. Oh sweetie, that is awesome. I’m holding the best hope for you!

  4. Good luck. I’ve got everything crossed.

  5. Great news. I hope you are able to take it easy. I am glad you get to go to your grandmother’s funeral and be with your family.

    I am still holding your hope and man is it ever bright now. Like a lighthouse showing the way in the dark. I am keeping everything crossed for you Mrs. Hope.

  6. Normally I would be in Hopeville today for alumni band–but this year the schedule didn’t work out. I thought of you & I hope the “infertile” part of your life just stopped. as you wrote about several posts ago-I am willing to hold that hope for you…

  7. You mentioned couple of posts ago that your transfer was going to be on Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. Since I read that, I have had a good feeling abut you. It is Jewish tradition to wish each other a “sweet new year” and I certainly wish one for you. I, too, am holding your hope. ((hugs))

  8. What a relief! After the horrid time you had at the last appointment.
    Wishing you the best of luck!

  9. Congrats on a great transfer! I am hoping for the best!

  10. I am sorry to hear about your grandmother’s passing, but happy that her suffering is over. I hope that her life will come full circle as a baby(ies) for you with this transfer.

  11. I’m so sorry to hear about your grandmother, but so glad the transfer went well. I’m also holding your ball of hope for you! Stick, babies!

  12. I’m so sorry to hear of your grandmother’s passing. She sounded like an amazing woman. I lost a brilliant grandmother to Alzheimers two months before Cal was born; I was also her oldest grandchild.

    Maybe the circle of life can continue with these babies growing within you. You are a wonderful mother, and I hope this time you will be one for longer than a few days. Prayers and hope-holding and babydust*****

  13. Thinking of you!

  14. Thinking of you today as you attend your grandma’s funeral. What a blessing it would be if she sent you a baby in her place.

  15. My sympathies for your grandmother’s passing — no matter what the circumstances, it is always hard.

    And congrats on a great transfer.

  16. How lovely that you’ll be with your family to honor your grandmother’s life.

    How especially beautiful that all three embryos survived the thaw!

    Stick embies… stickstickstick.

    hopingandhopingandpraying for you

  17. I’m sorry the laminaria placement was so difficult. It is unfair that nothing has been easy for you – but that doesn’t mean you are broken!

    I’m also sorry to hear about your grandmother’s passing and am glad that you’re able to attend the services.

    But, more than anything, I’m thrilled to hear that all embryos survived the thaw and made it inside you – in a smooth transfer process.

    Please let this be the start of a whole new life!

  18. Good luck on this cycle. The 2WW sucks after an IVF cycle, so many hugs. A great transfer is a wonderful thing!

    I’m so sorry about your Grandmother, she sounded like a wonderful and interesting woman.
