So today I had my FET! They were able to transfer BOTH embies which thawed out “beautifully” according to the embryologist. I was so happy about that because I was so nervous! I’ve been worrying so much lately and I just don’t want to deal with disappointment but I also want to have faith that this IS going to work for me this time around! Today I just played some of my fave Christian songs from my “Encouragement” playlist that I created. I’ll include songs from the playlist at the end of this blog for those who are interested.
We had to wait like an hour so they let me empty partially twice. I think I emptied too much but it didn’t hinder anything thankfully! The transfer seemed like it happened so fast. I asked, “Is that it?” During the half hour wait after the transfer I made my hubby bring his iPad so we could watch Parks and Recreation so that it would take my mind off the fact that I really had to pee!
I spent the rest of the afternoon laying down, grading papers, updating my gradebook, and now I’m currently watching a Christmas Lifetime Movie. I will be continuing most of my meds. I can’t wait to be done with prometrium and the progesterone oil! Prometrium makes me EXHAUSTED. All I want to do is sleep sleep sleep! And the progesterone “booty shot” hurts the heck out of me! I’m about 100 pounds and five feet tall so I don’t have much meat happening down there…therefore, the shot makes me SO sore to the point where I have to sleep on my side. I’m also ready to be done with taking part of my Estrace “up there.” All of this will be well worth it though in the end! My first beta is on December 28th at 9 a.m. I won’t receive my results until the afternoon.
I’m remaining hopeful! It’s like the verse above says, to be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer. I want to choose hope over fear! Whatever is going to happen, is going to happen. I want to trust.
