At noon on Thursday our little blast was transferred. He thawed beautifully and picked right back up where he left off, expanding nicely. They performed assisted hatching upon thawing b/c it was easy to do with the cells still dehydrated. And, like last time, they used embryo glue. My stenotic cervix was easy to pass through so no issues there. I have the day to myself to just relax and watch movies while I "rest".
This time around I almost cried before the transfer. Not only is this the last time we will ever visit the RE but I also didn't want to be putting myself in this position of pain again. I really am not having a pity party! You just become more realistic after enough disappointments....ya know? I am not at all dreamy or excited this time (our fourth transfer). I am going to be ready to move on one way or the other. Thank goodness the test is relatively soon, next Friday. It's a few days earlier than normal due to the weekend. Because of the early testing the RE DE coordinator told me to expect a low beta *if* we conceive.
I can't help but be in awe of the fact that a human blastocyst is in my uterus...it's surreal. I have only had 3 day 8 cells transferred before. For ONCE an embryo is in there when it's supposed to be! Thinking of all the possibility he has is really inspiring. He should start hatching today...I wonder if he will like what he finds?
