I am currently CD7 of this cycle of healing. I will call on CD1 of my next cycle and we will move forward with the FET (Frozen Embryo Transfer) from there. People usually have a 30% chance of pregnancy with FET, but he said that my rates should be higher due to the quality of my embryos. We will TRANSFER 2 EMBRYOS on the day of our FET. There is an 80% chance of survival for each embryo during the thawing process. (We will ask for prayer for the embryos when the thawing process begins).

From my notes, I knew that they would want a pap smear in the month of July if I was not pregnant. It was AWFUL! My nurse couldn't find my cervix and Brandon was about to make her stop. I was crying, but began praying the Benediction aloud and she found it. The ultrasound (vaginal) was much easier. She did still see residual fluid, but nothing that looked problematic. Also there were residual cysts on my ovaries (which is also considered normal right now.)
We did have a copay of $35 today for my visit. We have an unpaid balance of $460.80 from the IVF/Cryopreservation. Thankfully, the did not make us pay that part today, but it must be paid in full before we begin the FET process.
Our nurse gave us much paperwork in preparation for the FET:
We stopped by the 2nd floor on our way out. I had some goodie bags made for three particular nurses who took such great care of me while I was in the hospital. =) I only got to see one of them and she recognized me immediately and hugged me.
Janet called and asked to be sure that we wish to thaw and transfer 2 embryos at our transfer.
I came home, popped some popcorn and napped. I'm exhausted! Also, I'm leading Bible Study this evening; talking about how God has blessed our fertility struggle.
Sorry this was a LONG post, but I had a lot to say. =)
