Officially PASP! ❄🙏❤🤞🤰
(Pregnant And Staying Pregnant)
Today started out rocky as I couldn’t find my lucky shirt (so I rocked my Backstreet Boys concert tee) and forgot my pineapple earrings but I did wear my alpaca socks 😉. Then with the blizzard of the year and a 70+ car pile up that we just barely missed…but we made the journey to Toronto safely and we are thankful.
The clinic was running about 1.5hrs behind so we had to wait (which is uncomfortable with a full bladder wanting to burst) but then it was finally out turn!
The embryologist came to speak with us and told us that little baby Frostie had survived the thaw & looked great. He (Mike’s convinced it’s a boy💙) expanded back to normal form and assisted hatching was performed to help with hatching & implantation. He remains a Day 6 embryo with a grading of 3CB.
Procedure room- glimpse into moments before transfer procedure
The transfer went smoothly & was actually the best of the four transfers I’ve experienced. The RE on call today was the same one who did our recent egg retrieval and she was wonderful. She found my uterus faster than most, and even though she said it’s hard to visualize as it’s quite retroverted (tilted towards my spine and flipped onto itself), she seemed confident with placement and the embryo was transferred successfully. She appeared pleased with how things went which has left us feeling confident & hopeful 😎👌.
Finished off with some acupuncture post transfer & McDonald’s 🍟 for good luck 🍀- apparently the salt in the fries are good for implantation 🤷♀️ worth a shot and c’mon they taste so gooood!
Now the journey for the oh so long TWW [two week wait] commences & I have promised myself & hubsie to stay positive and happy and enjoy this “pregnancy” until I have a reason not too – which isn’t happening as fourth times the charm, baby!!! (See what I did there…positive already. I’m putting it out to the universe so it shall be true!).
Keep saying your prayers & sending baby dust our way. Thank you to everyone who messaged me today via text or social media. We truly felt all your love & hope for this little one.
This is our little embie that could…our little fighter.
