went in this morning with knees knocking… would my lining be up to snuff? would we be turned away again – no sperm last week, no embryo this week…

well, good news! my lining was almost 11cm up from 8 and when the doc looked at past months info, 8 had been the best i had done in thus far, so 11 was my personal best (her words, not mine). yay for estrogen patches!

out of 4 embryos, only 2 made it through the thaw (that was hard) but the two that made it looked good and so in they went. it hurt! and i am so happy, a bit uncomfortable, super tired, but really happy. full of hope and embryos.

getting to this moment really sucked with the f’d up deliveries on saturday and sunday and then all the days of first disappointment of the missed iui cycle, the new idea – embryo transfer! and then anxiety that my lining would not be thick enough to warrant doing the embryo transfer… but now here i am on the couch with the kitties near by and my sweetie buzzing about – i have 2 of dakota’s embryos in my uterus trying to make a go of it, and i couldn’t be happier!
