We had 6 make it to blastocysts.
NYU does not believe in strict bed rest. They have said I can go to the dinner (I would skip the cocktail party). My acupuncturist says I can go to the dinner–just get in a cab and go. Have a good time.
There are two camps out there…and they seem to be evenly divided.
- Camp One says: strict bed rest for up to 3 days after transfer.
- Camp Two says: “take it easy” as in don’t go running or play basketball or get your heart rate up or clean the house, but you can go out to eat and fold laundry and sit up and read a book. Hell, you can even take a short walk.
To Come into My Life….”
NINE!!! 2 were immature and 1 had a 3-some and was banned from the group (get it on my friend, get it on!) so we have 9 fertilized–all on their own, no ICSI involved!!
I’m fucking thrilled!
Chicken is like “what’s ICSI?”
Sometimes it’s better when only one of you knows what is truly going on…that way at least one person is blissfully calm throughout everything.
However, my lab (NYU) does not inform me on a daily basis what’s going on with said embryos, so I’ll just have to wait.
Chicken suggested maybe that’s the universe’s way of telling me to chill out about it and just think positive thoughts.
Let Go and Let God.
Personally, I think the eggs felt all your prayers and heard me singing them a song last night and decided to “get down on it”.
Saturday, June 6th, 11:30am we have transfer scheduled.
And yes, for those of you that asked, June 6th is my “real” 40th birthday.
Pretty awesome birthday present!
Now off to meditate with my Anji Step 2 and think only positive thoughts.
