Egg Transfer; Lovely Blog

Today's transfer went well. III came with me this time, which he didn't the last. He didn't come into the OR with me, but he waited with and then for me. It was really nice to have him there, and he was very interested in our embryo news. We got 2 8-3 embryos for the fresh transfer, and then another NINE of various levels (if I remember right, at least 2 of them were also 8-3) to freeze. They discarded only FOUR of the fifteen! It's such a relief to know that a) we got two good quality embryos for today's transfer and b) we have some hardy embryos frozen for future FETs.

One funny thing- the tech was doing the u/s looking for my uterus and paused. She said "Um, Dr? Is that her ovary???" I told her "Well, they got 20 eggs..." She said "Oh! So I guess it is!" I said "Yeah, I've been feeling pretty bloated," and she told me "Yes, I can see why!" So, apparently my ovaries are pretty huge right now.

A few days ago, Katie nominated me for The Lovely Blog award.

The rules of the "One Lovely Blog Award" are: Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

I definitely don't have fifteen newly discovered blogs that I have taken up reading... but with ICLW I did get a few. Some have already been listed on others' blogs, but these are the newest blogs I've begun to regular visit:

Misconceptions About Conception
The Pitter Patter
Slice of Pie
I Never Thought It Made Sense Anyway

Okay, so that's only four. :-/ I spent a little time looking around at others during ICLW, but those are the four that made it to my bloglist. I love everyone on my bloglist, though, new and old, so head over to the right and check 'em all out! :-)
