3 blasts baby

We transferred 3 blastocysts yesterday, yeah three. Super S was like "what if we have 3, that would be so cool.." I just smiled, he is too cute. I am hoping for at least one first.

So they were three Grade 1 blastocysts that were transferred. The lab vitrified a total of 6 embryos. Not all blasts, but 3 are. I misunderstood Dr. K when I thought he said all were blastocysts. I have the detailed report now and photos of all of our embryos.

Transfer went well. I held onto my Grandmothers prayer beads during transfer and it felt so right. We watch the whole thing on the screen and I just cried, I do every time thinking this is the one.

After the transfer I laid there while Super S and Dr. K talked about photography and astronomy, LOL. I chimed in every couple minutes and I just laughed to myself. Here I am, legs up, naked half down, but covered and curtain drawn and my husband, doctor and I talking about hobbies and technical aspects of camera lenses, LOLLLL! But you know what it was great, it relaxed me in a strange way and I felt totally comfortable.

Then we went to another part of the clininc, I laid down and took my IViG infusion. Super nice nurse gal was so cute. She asked me if I like Egypt or America better, and if I want a girl or a boy... just small talk, she was cute though.

So my test day is February 20th.

Super S made reservations for us to go to Dahab this Sunday. I am not sure if I should go? Why? Not sure really. I am not on bedrest, I am taking it easy but not always laying down, is this ok? Dr. K said it is, but I read so many of you after transfer are in bed a few days, should I be too?

While I LOVE Dahab and we have not been since last year, and have been itching to go, I am thinking to wait until after the 20th and go then. A few reasons... my daily injections of Clexane they have to be refrigerated and I am not sure if the pharmacies there carry it. I bet they do, but then again not sure. I guess I could call our friend there and have him ask a pharmacy for us? The suppositories and prednisolone I can take with us no problem.

What do you guys think, should we just go? It would be cool to test there and find out we are pregnant at our favorite spot in all the world really.

So I will try to decide in the next day or so be sure to give me your opinions too ok? Super S has to call and change reservation if we decide to go later.

So thats it. I feel good, positive and pray that this time we will be pregnant.

Thank you for all your well wishes and I ask you now to channel positive thoughts, prayers and vibes to Cairo. Much love... xoxoxoxoxo

  1. Sending ALL the good vibes I have your way, woman. And I say go if you can go...there's something to be said for having an enjoyable time during the wait for beta...I say anything that makes it pass faster (even a change of scenery) is a positive. But do what you feel is right...

    Fingers crossed!!!

  2. Super S is awesome, Diver Dude gets heart palpitations if I just mention transferring TWO! And here he is wishing for three :)

    I say go! Enjoy some time together and your two weeks will fly by. If doc said OK I don't see why not as long as you can deal with the logistics and meds and all that :)

    Massive amounts of positive thoughts, prayers and good vibes coming your way girl!

  3. Oh sweetie you did soooo well!! You had it so tough so far, I know it's hard to be positive, but you have 3 top blasts in your belly now, I am really hopeful that the IvIg was just what you needed.
    I don't have to keep my Clexane refrigerated, isn't that strange?

    I am not sure about bed rest, given my history of ectopics the doc said it would be better if I don't move too much for a couple of days, but I actually read that there is no statistical difference on the pregnancy outcome between bed-rest or not! I'd say do anything that make you feel happy and comfortable.
    As for your trip, I'd say you should go! I have everything crossed for you my friend. Fran

  4. Congratulations, sounds like everything couldn't have gone better! My dr also told us that bed rest is not necessary, but to just relax & take it easy...I'd say traveling to someplace you love would definitely bring relaxation!

  5. I hope you have a GREAT time on your trip, whenever you decide to go. I think it will be a great way to pass time while waiting around until the 20th...

    Super excited for you guys!!!!

  6. Congrats on 3 great blasts! I will think this is the one right along with you.

    I vote go on your trip, kick back and enjoy it. Maybe it will keep your mind off of it...: )...I know, whatever.

    (My clinic switched from 3 days of bedrest for my first transfer to 24 hours then resume activity.)

  7. Wow@3!!!

    Am sending you super-duper-sparkly-awesome tons of prayers and positive vibes.

    Well, even if you are not on bed rest, I would still hope that you would take it very laidback and easy for a few days.

    I am so happy that Super S is so supportive.

    Take the trip when your heart tells you to....

    Shine!

  10. I never had to refrigerate my heparin either - maybe check with your pharmacy again and see if it's necessary?

    I would totally go on the trip - just make Super S do all the preparation! :) Really, though, if you feel more comfortable resting for a few days, do so, but by Sunday, I would think travelling would be fine. Also, it would distract you and keep you from obsessing for the next 11 days.

    Much luck! 3? Wow!

  11. Sending all the good vibes I have your way! Glad to hear the transfer went well and you are still feeling positive! Did you have any to freeze or do you not know yet?

    I'm not sure if you should go to Dahab or not. What kind of place is it? If you'll be able to take it easy there I don't see any reason why you shouldn't go. Like you said, it would be awesome to find out you are pregnant while in your favorite place!

  15. These are wonderful news!!! 3 perfect blastocytes :)

    I think it is difficult to advice whether to go or not to Dehab, I would personally only go if I thought it would be relaxing ( no carrying bags or no long walks).

  16. It all sounds so wonderful!!! I'm sending all the positive energy I can to you!!!
    Take the trip when your heart and gut says it's right.

  18. Congrats on 3 blasts! Praying that they will all snuggle up nicely and make themselves comfy in there. My RE recommends 48 hours of bedrest but I think different clinics have different recommendations. If you can work our the logistics for your meds, I would definitely go to Dahab. In fact, I am not trying to figure out a way to finagle a vacation out of the hubby when we do our ET. Good luck!

  28. Why does your clexaine have to be refridgerated? Is it really that hot over there lol :) Mine doesn't and you'd think that if they have the same name then they'd have the same manufacturer and they would have the same recomendations ans requirements for storge. Weird :)
