Couldn't sleep last night my back hurt so bad, so I got up early and emailed the lab manager again. I was sure since it was Day 5 she would tell me something about our babies....but I was wrong! She said we would get pics and they would talk to us at transfer. I was mad! Why are they so secretive??
We drove the 2 hours to get there and I had my first ever acupuncture appt. I didn't like it much. Not because of the needles....they didn't bother me....it was because of the laying there waiting. Since my back has been hurting it continued to hurt laying there. I am just not a patient person!!
After that we went in to the room for transfer. I was sure the embryologist would come in and talk to us about our babies but NO! When I asked they said the doctor would talk to us about them. He came in and gave us pics of all the embryos. All 28 but they didn't all make it to blast. He counted 20 he thought we had. At the time I was confused because I counted 28, but after doing research I figured out he was just counting the ones they would probably keep. I kept asking about the quality and he just kept saying "they are wonderful your chances are great" He is a sugar coat kind of guy which I don't like. I was really hoping to get the other doctor...the one who did my retrieval...he is much more straight forward.
Anyways he asked us how many we wanted to transfer and said we would be good candidates for a single embryo transfer. We told him we still wanted to transfer two and he was fine with that. The actual transfer wasn't too bad. It was actually pretty quick. When the embryologist came in with our babies I did ask her what the grade was since the doctor wouldn't give us a real answer. She said they were both 5AA. The doctor seemed somewhat offended that I didn't trust his answer...well he never really gave me an answer!! I did research when I got home and the grades are pretty darn good I think!! =)
I did ask the doctor about my pain I have in my back at night and in my belly when I pee. Both are getting worse. He said my ovaries are huge and I might need them drained. Ekkkk...I really don't want that to happen. I really hope I can prevent that!
After the transfer I had acupuncture again. This time was better, but it still isn't my cup of tea. I think I would much rather a massage!!
So here are our babies....
We are pregnant with twins till proven otherwise!! Hope they are snuggling in!!
