relief in the form of a catheter

So if you’ve been reading this blog since the beginning, you have some idea of how difficult anything involving my cervix was for me. If you haven’t, I’ll refer you here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, or here. And that’s probably not half of what we actually did. Or you can just believe me that transfers and all the crap I went through to get to transfers were nightmarish. I’m not exaggerating.

I had my pre-op for Monday’s hysteroscopy today. And we did a trial transfer.

And it was easy. Easy. EASY.

You simply can not imagine my sheer relief. It’s hard to explain, but it gives me great peace. The embryos are created – there’s no way to know if they are chromosomally normal or not. There’s no way to know if they’ll survive the thaw process. There’s no way to know if I’ll get pregnant.

But transfers were always this limiting step. It seemed like everyone else got normal transfers; I got anything but normal. And that impacts success rates.

I guess I’m saying I feel like we have a chance. A real one.

And if it doesn’t work, it’s not going to be because of a crappy transfer.

And that – that is something I can live with.
