Our "Transfer Date" is set . . . . drum roll please . . . . Friday the 28th of March!
This is when the Intended Parents Blastocysts will be placed in my uterus- oh, excuse me, I mean my beautiful uterus will receive the most gorgeous blastocysts the world has ever dreamed of . (You think I'm joking, but the rumor is out, they are indeed gorgeous. I hear Angelina Jolie is already trying to adopt them).
But seriously, I almost envy those little blastocysts- I love my house, but from what I hear, it's no where near as gorgeous as where they will be "shackin' up" for the next several months. Feel free to doubt, but I've seen the ultrasounds . . . I know what I'm talking about :)
Anyway- I fly down Thursday night after teaching, have the transfer sometime Friday, bed rest for 24 hours and then I fly back on Sunday.
I have been getting ready for the transfer by taking prenatal vitamins and doing the Delestrogen shots every 3rd day. I also started my Progesterone shots on Sunday and those will continue EVERYDAY from now until around the 8th week of pregnancy. For those of you keeping count at home, that's 1 shot of Delestrogen every 3rd day + 1 shot of Progesterone every day = two very bruised butt cheeks.
Rick, my husband asked the other day if "irritability" was one of the side effects from the injections. (That would be a no, that's just a side effect of being married with 3 kids 6, 4 and 18 months). But I have had some side effects . . . a little weight gain, bloating and one or two I won't mention for your sake.
Well, I need to go, it's shot time!
