Transfer the Second

We had Transfer #2 today--both frozen embryos thawed, both were put back. Yikes. Well, it was "yikes" last time and nothing much came of it, so we'll take our chances on yikes.

The lab tech, as she handed us our "certificate" of embryo thaw, said, "and that's it--you've cleaned out the freezer." No more chances. No more embryos (for now). That's that. It feels so--final. But...I had an acupuncture appointment immediately afterward to clear my body of rejection, hopefully, and make the uterus oh-so warm, fuzzy, and welcoming to the embryo guests who will hopefully be settling down for a long term visit.

And now....we wait. You know how it goes. I'm hoping the recent positives out there in lady-land rub off and mean good things for us over here. Everything's crossed on this one.

Got everything crossed for you!!!

I do have a question for you since we have a frozen embie too... when do they schedule the beta at your place... how many days after transfer of a 5 day embryo?

Fingers and toes crossed!

To answer the beta question....our embryo is a 3-day, so 11 days after transfer I go in for my test. I guess if you had a 5-day, you'd go in 9 days after transfer.
