100

No, that's not how many embryos I put back. This is my 100th post. It's also cinco de mayo. And most importantly today is the most knocked up I've ever been. We put back two great embryos. The original weighed in at an outstanding 8 cell grade A. The second weighed in at a respectable 9 cell grade C.

M and I were prepared to put back all three(yikes) if the grading was poor and the RE allowed. Fortunately/unfortunately this was unnecessary. The third embryo arrested, leaving us with just the two. I'm pleased that they seem to be strong and that we didn't have to consider the third.

Of course now I'm beginning the dreaded 2WW-AKA-WUB. At least this time I have a prayer. Thanks for all of your kind thoughts, prayers, and support. Sadly the RE doing the transfer doesn't take pics, so not much to show and tell.

I am so happy to hear this news!!! YAY an 8 and 9 cell! That is awesome. I have never had anything over a 9 cell. Happy 100th post and being PUPO w/ twins. I can't wait for your beta. Treat yourself kindly and make sure to stay busy. Go shopping, do gentle stretching, see a movie, etc.

I really want this to work so we can do it together. :)

Sorry I'm late to the party! I am praying that those 2 are burrowing in for the long haul! Rest and relax as much as possible!
