And, we're here!

I can’t believe we’re here.

We’re really finally here!

After a whirlwind week of wondering if this cycle would even go ahead – we have arrived in Denver and are all set for our embryo transfer in the morning. Even though I have a sore throat and stuffy nose, nothing should be compromised.

We ended up having to leave Cooper and nana at home (which wasn’t part of the plan) and come just the two of us. This will mark the first time that we’ve ever been away from Cooper for more than a night. And we’ll be gone for 4 nights to be exact. Arriving today and leaving Monday – after 48 hours of bed-rest. I was so sad to leave him for that long, but we know it's for a good reason, and we know him and nana will have their own little great adventure together while we are gone. Even so, I already miss him like crazy!

So after a long travel day, tonight we are cozied up in our hotel room together, drinking herbal tea, eating snacks, missing our little guy, and thinking about what will happen tomorrow. Will our embryo’s survive the thaw? Will they be worse for wear? Will we have a smooth successful transfer? Will our two little embryo’s snuggle up tight and get ready to implant? It’s anyone’s guess.

All we can do is think positive and hope for the best.

And see it in our dreams.

Mk 11:24 "...believe that you will receive it and it shall be yours". Eating pineapple cores wouldn't hurt either! Sending you all the good wishes and can't wait to hear all about the transfer!

I've been following your blog because my husband and I are going to be going back to CCRM this year to try for our 2nd child too! (we went there for our first child as well, and he was born 6 months ago). Hoping and praying for a successful transfer for you today!!

I have just been directed to your blog after asking around on a fertility forum for someone in a similar situation.

We've got plenty of great eggs, severe quality sperm on all points and getting no fertilistion. The sperm have normal chromosomes though...

Well - 28 eggs so far and only 1 fertilised into a poor quality embryo that didn't implant.

I'm very proactive too and have arranged to have IMSI and PICSI at my clinic, starting in Feb.

I just wanted to wish you luck with your FET tomorrow xx

The truth is you don't know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is a crazy ride, and nothing is guaranteed. See the link below for more info.
