Surviving the ice age

Today my clinic will thaw and culture my embryos. I am scared and nervous, but hopeful and excited as well. Our transfer is tomorrow at 9:30 and we don't know yet how many embryos we will be putting back. 

I have been on progesterone for almost a week now. My butt is sore but it is getting better and more tolerable. Placing the vial of progesterone in hot water for about 5 minutes prior to the shot helps the progesterone to move more quickly. No big lumps or knots yet so I am thankful for that. 

If you could please send warm multiplying and dividing thoughts to my embryos today, we would all appreciate it. Thanks!!

And now, introducing, our beautiful embryos. I'm sure they'll look a bit different after the thaw but this was them in July. They were frozen on day 3.


  1. So exciting!!! Lots of multiplying and dividing thoughts going your way. :)

  2. I am hoping nothing but best wishes for you and little embabies!

  3. Have a good sleep tonight and good luck tomorrow (and beyond!)

  4. Definitely sending you positive thoughts. Best of luck tomorrow.

  5. That is great that you have a pic of the ones they thawed! Isn't it amazing!

    Good luck my friend!
