|Waiting to sign in|
|Me in my flattering robe|
|That room gets cold so I brought my fuzzy socks|
Plus, they're pink & blue!
|I can't remember what he was saying here|
|They were hilarious getting all gowned up|
|Getting Joy all situated|
|They gave him the hair nets for his shoes|
|He's ready for surgery-haha!|
|Sneakers, me, and the cute little bear ART gave me|
|Joy and me before being taken to the transfer room|
We went into the transfer room, and wow-it was great to be in there and not be as nervous as the last time. I could remember shaking uncontrollably because I was so nervous about the egg retrieval process. Brooke still vividly remembered me from my tentative transfer day/hospitalization day back in June. She was excited to see me back to myself again.
Joy prayed for us before everything got started. Brooke even joined us. It was such a beautiful time. My feet couldn't stop dancing because I was so excited!
|I look terrified! Really, I just had to potty because my bladder had to be full for the transfer|
|Nervous-Excitement waiting on Dr. Allemand|
|There's never a dull moment with Sneakers|
I wish I could say that the transfer process itself was a piece of cake, but when you have extreme pelvic pain issues, no pelvic exam, etc. is ever easy. Dr. Allemand made sure to talk me through the entire process. When someone says they're going to swab your cervix, it's not exactly comfortable! Thankfully I had Brandon holding my hand and Joy's hand on my head. Everyone kept talking to me to keep me from panicking. Of course I broke out in a hot flash, but I tend to do that during procedures. Luckily, the actual process of transferring the two embryos didn't take near as long and the preparation. They gave me three different pictures of my belly throughout the process! I would post them, but they're difficult to "read" if you don't know what you're looking for.
|Resting after the transfer|
Anxiously waiting to be allowed to go to the potty!
|Nesia gave us lots of "baby dust" today|
|Afterward with my bear|
LaShawn said I looked different already =)
I'm keeping up with everything relating to this cycle on my FET page!
