One for the baby book

So, should this process actually work, we have the first picture for the baby book! I would like to introduce you to blastocysts 4BB and 3BB, the cutest little things I think I've ever seen.

For those of you who were worried about me, my bladder ended up not being a problem during the transfer. Mainly because I was too busy having a migraine to worry about whether or not I had to pee. Fortunately, the valium kicked in just in time so it never went full blown (meaning I wasn't puking like I was from the one I got on Saturday), but it was still less than pleasant.

Oh, and I love my RE. I had a one in five chance of him actually doing my transfer (all the docs in the practice rotate), but of course he was there when we got there. He's such a fun mix of scary smart, crazy good, slightly arrogant and at the same time goofy as all hell. As I'm getting strapped into the stirrups, he walks out of the OR telling J and me that he has to go pee or he won't be able to concentrate. Um, okay? Good thing I wasn't obsessing about my own bladder at that point, or I might have been upset with him flaunting his ability to urinate at will!

The transfer went smoothly, and now we wait. One upside to having a six-day transfer is my two week wait has gotten noticeably shorter. So, beta on 1/20. A week from tomorrow.

Wow.
