Ultrasound day at clinic. 3 embryonic sacs visible. One's slightly smaller than the others, but its there. I'm having 3 babies!
OK I admit, I cried. So did mom.
I really wish Mike were here to share this with me...
Plan is for me to see the OB every week for now, and to see my endocrinologist every 2 wks.
So far my blood sugar has been fairly stable and I love my pump(the OmniPod).

4 more tests done and alllll positive. I go back to the RE/OB next week and he will do an ultrasound to see if any have implanted.
Mike knows and is thrilled. Mom's still here, she's thrilled.

I know its only been a week, well, not quite, but I had to do it. I had to test. andddddddddd
Not just one. Not even two....but 6. I did 6 tests today. I have 4 more to do over the next few days, It's not likely to be the hormones, its been long enough since I had HCG that the shots are out of my system now, and this HCG is me.
I am still on progesterone injections, but they won't make a positive result.
I can't wait till Mike calls!

I find myself paranoid waiting to test. 3 days post transfer I had some spotting. Called the clinic really upset and the nurse told me to try not to worry, it could possibly be implantation bleeding.
I forgot to mention, mom's here with me. I think she only came to keep me from falling apart when I get the negative result I am expecting.Though 4 of the previous attempts were positive, they just decided not to stick around.

Embryo transfer this morning.
Four five day old blastocytes transferred. 24 hrs of bed rest now. Mike called early this morning from Afghanistan. He is hoping for good news soon.
I find it near impossible to wait for test day. Jan 13 is 10 days post transfer, and test day.
8 embryos remaining if this transfer fails. Will I have the mental strength to do it again?
