Today at approximately 1:30 p.m. EST I will – hopefully, prayerfully – have our last two donor-egg embryos transferred into my well-primed uterus. I am nervous, excited and a little scared.
My intentions are set and I have felt more grounded since doing so. On the whole, I feel optimistic and hopeful lately. Things feel as right as they can given my loss history and immune and HLA diagnoses.
Yesterday I had my last pre-transfer meeting and ultrasound with Dr. Braverman. He was pleased, my lining was 10 mm and still perfectly trilaminar. He gave me a picture of it to take with me (for good luck?). He said I/we have done everything we can and my body appears to be responding beautifully so now it is all up to the embryos.
No pressure, Gert and Al.
Yesterday afternoon I also had pre-transfer acupuncture with a new practitioner to whom Dr. B’s nurse referred me last week. I really liked her and wish she were working today so I could do my post-transfer session with her but no luck. I’ll head back to Yin.Ova for that later this afternoon.
In the meantime I plan to do some work this morning to keep myself busy and then go for a walk, hopefully through Central Park to the clinic where my transfer will be done. I think that would be a nice segue. Hopefully my time management skills or lack thereof enable this plan to come to fruition.
To Gertrude and Alice: I love you. The LP loves you. We want you to come home and stay there. Please survive. Please transfer smoothly. Please implant deeply and thrive.
