IVF #1 CD 19 "Transfer"

You were all right. The worst part of the transfer is the full bladder. And I had the "bladder award" for the day. It was huge and so so painful. I drank a ton of water all morning and especially once we got to the clinic. I was really worried about peeing on the Doc. Don't worry, I didn't.

Out of our 14 embryos, 5 were blasts today and some may be blasts by tomorrow so after putting 2 in today we have at least 3 frozen. Yay! Hopefully we'll get more frozen tomorrow but I am happy about the 3.

The transfer went well. I had to pee so bad though so it seemed to take forever. I was having a hard time concentrating on anything else. Also, the Valium made me flushed and hot so I wasn't very comfortable... And then the Doc came in and used the ultrasound... Yep more pressure on the bladder so not fun. And I couldn't relax for the speculum so that was more uncomfortable than usual. If I ever have to do this again or advise anyone else going in. Don't over load the bladder! Get it full but not about to pop. The nurses and Doc were so nice about it though. They could see how much pain I was in. After the all clear the nurse went super fast to transfer me to recovery and brought me a bedpan right away. I have never been happier for a bedpan. I think I peed for a whole minute. Bliss.

Then I got to look at the pictures they gave us. We got a picture of each blast and the ultrasound of them right after they got put in. That was the first moment I felt that they were mine.


  1. congrats. we are in the dreaded 2ww together!! hang on, it is going to be quite the ride. lol

  2. Yay! for 5 beautiful blasts so far!
    That is interesting about the bladder. They wanted mine empty for the ET. (???)

    Congrats on being PUPO!!! and Happy Incubaton, Girl!
