Hello there BinB Woo hooo… Yay for those 3 little troopers!! 3 is wonderful but I’m sorry to hear 3 didn’t make it – just a couple more would be so very nice. I am sending bunches of cosmic energy and of course and yet more your way that all three are going to be lovely little strong embies between 2-4 cells when you call for your update this morning - I swear time stands still when your counting down to 10am …. arggghhh!
It’s a tough one re the timing of when to transfer and I have really struggled with it in the past. My only tidbit of advice would be to just take things day by day and see how those little guys are tracking and make the decision based on that. Lordy me you know I know exactly where you’re at emotionally, I had very little faith in my embryos and was relieved/amazed/surprised they made it to the point they did after what I felt was such a shi*%y cycle. Yep it’s a bummer they don’t do transfers on Sunday as I would have considered a 6 dt this time round to see if they made it to blast had I had the opportunity but I guess FS has to have some time off tho… Of course, there is some evidence to suggest that in older ladies embryos may be better off in mum sooner rather than later – but I know WDA doesn’t subscribe to this train of thought… but at the end of the day who can really say for sure.
I must admit I was a little worried about not hearing from you sooner (but don’t feel pressured as it important to be able to take time to process if you need to – at least for me it is) …but crazy as it sounds I thought to myself... oooh maybe there were some computer dramas holding you back, so there you go . Thinking of you today - you know I'm cheering you and your little guys on from the bench...
Mrs P I hope you feel better soon. Thanks for the good vibes... glad you got my message - it is also a decision I wrestled with too. All I can say is weigh everything up and go with your gut instinct.
AFM… lunch with g/f was a lovely distraction – great little vego café where I ate half my own body weight in food … yum! Didn’t make it to the movies as I got distracted by the Target stocktake sale in the arvo and yet more flooring samples – I now think I have met every flooring salesman in Cairns.... Nothing much else happening… just waiting, waiting, waiting... but it is nice to feel I have finally let the sunshine in attitude wise this time round and regardless of the outcome I really hope to be able to cultivate a more positive outlook if I need to cycle again in the future - I’m sure it can only help to have some good juju flowing through the veins. Not to mention I got myself so worked up with anxiety during stims that I couldn’t sleep and really started to worry that the insomnia (literally had no sleep for three days) would affect the cycle outcome. It’s a tricky line to walk trying to be positive but not wanting to set yourself up for a big fall should there be a BFN at the end of the line. Take care ladies.
