T'Was The Night Before Transfer. . .

First things first: transfer was moved to 1 PM. This isn't a big deal for me, because I am taking the morning to work from home and then the afternoon off. For my husband, however, it is a huge deal. He was recently promoted and it's tough for him to take time off, especially Fridays when it seems as if all the last minute things start coming in. It was already problematic for him to get off by noon to make it to the 3 PM transfer time. So, he wasn't too happy when I called with the change of plans.

I am eager to get the transfer done with, so I am happy for the move up. Now that he has managed to shift things around, it's all okay, but for awhile there, I was lining up another ride to the transfer, tearfully thinking that my husband wouldn't be able to make it. They allow the husbands in the room for the transfer and I had all of these images of us being in there together, and then it seemed like it wouldn't happen. But it did, so I am moving forward.

Secondly, the spotting has gone and when I let the IVF coordinator know what was going on, she said exactly what you lovely ladies told me. Residual spotting. She said that sometimes, a scab forms and then when it comes off, that is what a big spot could be from. That's one of them any reasons why I love you fellow IFers so much - you are so smart!

Everything still looked good with our embryos today. As of 11 AM, we had no further arrests. Let's hope that is still the case tomorrow.

I am nervous, but almost like I used to get before Christmas as a child. Not nervous so much as just really excited and filled with anticipation. I am not going into this expecting it work, but I am hoping and praying so much that it does.
