FET Madness - Day 19 - Growth Report

Today's call from the embryologist revealed that 2 of our embies are compacting and on their way to *hopefully* becoming blasts. One more is growing sloooooowly and the remaining 3 have yet to progress.

I remain hopeful for our 2 little strong ones to keep on doing their thing and grow big & strong.

I am a little sad for the ones that are left behind, but I fully expected there to be a drop off today.

The embryologist wants one more peek at them before deciding if tomorrow is the big day, so we call in the morning for the final decision. I am really hoping tomorrow is the day.

I would be lying if I said the nerves weren't kicking in a little bit. Going into the FET, I knew our goal was to have 2 of the 6 get to blast and while we seem to be on track for that, anything can still happen. 2 is such a small number in the grand scheme of things and a lot can happen to those little embies in the next 15 hours....Wishing, hoping and praying that those are our miracles in a petri dish!

We spent all of Sunday doing major spring cleaning and it felt so good to scrub, organize, air out and get rid of some clutter. We filed lots of paper work as well and I really felt like we got rid of some N.U.T.S - nagging unfinished tasks that were causing us STRESS! I told Sean over dinner that the cleaning was therapeutic for me. I felt like we were clearing out all the old energy and opening ourselves up to new, positive energy. Opening up channels for the Chi to flow - our hearts, minds, home and body are all open to accepting these embryos and the new life they bring.

We went out for chinese food and our fortune cookies both had the same message:
"All your hard work will soon pay off."

At the beginning of this FET, we went to P.F. Cha.ngs for lunch & my fortune read:
"Bide your time, for success is near."

Hoping, hoping, hoping!

It sounds like you are in full nesting mode, cleaning house and getting everything ready for the arrival of your embryos. I KWYM about the 2 embryos - we're also down to two as well so it is a frightening place to be...but it is still a place that has hope and chance and possibility so hang onto that. GL and I hope that the transfer is tomorrow and with more than you thought!!!!!!

Already almost time! Good luck! I'm amazed by the fortune cookies, it sounds like you've had some fantastic omens. It's amazing to think that in a few weeks you'll know how it turns out!

That sounds nerve wracking, waiting for the next report from the embryologist. I hoping for two for you as well!

Sounds like things are going really well, Emily. I'm so excited for you all. Stay focused on the positive - I know it's hard, but it really only takes one.

Jill said...

I fully believe in fortune cookie messages. Dave and I both got some when I was pg, right when we really needed a sign that everything would be ok. GOOD LUCK!!! I am hoping and praying for some good news!

sending hope and lots of love. We are thinking of you - keeping our fingers crossed and saying prayers... Let's hope those fortunes come to fruition.

Caroline said...

Good luck - I'll be thinking of you and your little embies. I hope they stay strong, and that your transfer goes well.

Jill said...

Love the fortune cookie messages. We got a really positive one as well before our FET... :-)

I head your fears and concerns. Hoping they keep on growing overnight and you've got some great embies to transfer tomorrow.

notaclowncar said...

Two is perfect. I'm rooting for you and I am thinking of you.

Much love.

sounds like things are growing well, though I understand being wistful for those that are lagging. Just remember, we had only 3 blasts(and one wasn't great) and transferred 2, to get this one pregnancy. So, here's hoping your success is very near!
Remember, email me if you end up needing some endometrin, I have 1.5 boxes.
