ivf #3 embryo transfer...

This one was way hatched.



Both of these hatching too.


I am home and resting. All went really good and it was actually very moving today.

All 9 were still in the running with 2 lagging behind at 10 cell stage.

They transferred 3 that were all hatching and said they looked so good they didn't want to transfer more for fear of higher order multiples. this was a bit surprising considering my track record but they all sat and we discussed things (doc and both embryologists) for almost 15 minutes beforehand and I saw their point.

Bliss was there and amazing as usual. He melts my heart and holds my hand while he watched the screen as they do it.

They were all so involved and invested emotionally as well, it was really, really moving today. Afterwards everyone in the office today stood around while I got the magic wands (yes two) waved over my belly and to my cheeks, then I got my "Princess Bleu" tiara and each of them (5 were there) hugged me and said sweet things. I was crying by the time I left.

There is a bit of fear/pressure with how great the embryo's were this time but I am going to just try and remain positive.

Will post more later and thank you to every one of you for such amazing energy, I really REALLY feel it.

The little star I watch for when they hit the plunger.

I have been wondering all day how it went, I am checking from dinner at my Mom's. Hatching is excellent. My friends put back 4, and one was hatching. Today they are sure their daughter was the hatching one. I have a multiples feeling on this one. Sending you the warmest hugs across the border.
