5 Day Transfer!

So I had to call my lab today to find out if my transfer was going to be a three day which would have been today or a five day which will be Tuesday. Lucky for me, my transfer will be on Tuesday. Out of the nine, we still have seven that are really going strong. I honestly couldn't be happier with my cycle. I'm hoping the good news just keeps on coming

So I had the retrieval

Andddddddddd we got 17 eggs! For me that's fantastic! My RE called this morning and out of the 17, 9 fertilized! couldn't be happier with those numbers. I have to call them on Sunday and see when my transfer will be. If it's a three day transfer it will be Sunday and if it's a five day transfer it will be Tuesday. Either one I will be happy with. I will keep everyone posted as I find out more on Sunday.

Had The Trail Transfer Today

So today went well, had the transfer and everything went very smoothly which is always fantastic.

One thing I like about my new RE is that they monitor you very closely whereas my old RE I went in once every four or five days. My new RE wants me there basically every other day which is very comforting to me. I feel my new RE really is in the business of getting me pregnant where my old RE seemed like he just wanted to be my friend. As far as my schedule goes I got a little more in depth information today at my appointment. Basically, I stopped taking the birth control yesterday, I go in Friday for blood work and ultra sound and then start the stimulation medicine Saturday. The week of the 29th will be my egg retrieval and then three or five days later the transfer. I can't believe how quickly it's going.

We're On Our Way

So I got my IVF schedule on Friday and I have to say that this is the quickest cycle I will do here's the rundown:

17th-Trial Embryo Transfer

20th-Start Stims

31st-2nd- Egg Retrieval

5th or 7th- Transfer

I feel like I'm not ready for this cycle, that it's just coming up so fast but maybe that's a good thing. I'm trying not to get too freaked out about it. I've been listening to my meditation cd's which I feel like they are helping. I've cut out all caffeine and I've really been watching what I've been eating. I don't want to look back at this cycle and think I didn't do everything in my power to make it a successful one.

I will update again on the 17th after the trail transfer

The Journey Begins

So, AF showed yesterday and that means IVF #3 is on it's way. I get to call my RE tomorrow and schedule my day 3 work up and then go from there. Like I said at first it's a slow process starting with birth control and then moving on from there so as of right now we just sit and wait.

But on another note, I got to take some awesome pictures of my dog over the weekend and wanted to share a couple, here they are:

I'm just waiting for my period to show her ugly face so that we can get this show one the road. Once I get it I go in for a three day work up which means blood work and an ultrasound. After that I start birth control and then on to the stims.

Right now the process is slow so I don't have much to report. I also ordered a St. Gerard necklace because honestly it can't hurt and I feel like it will do me some good. Now if you don't know St. Gerard is the patron saint of motherhood. They say you should pray to him if you are looking to conceive a child, for a safe delivery or for a sick child. For me this is the first time praying to him and at first I was on the fence about it since I'm not big into religion but over the last few nights I find myself talking to him like he was an old friend, explaining to him our situation, telling him what great parents we would make and whatnot. I really feel connected in a way. I feel like when I lay my head down and "get to talking" someone is listening. Maybe I'm in a better place than I was a year ago or maybe I'm starting to embrace my catholic up bringing but whatever it is I like it.

I may even go to church.
