Greetings from South Africa things have been crazy so I am just now finding time to post & update you all. We arrived in SA 1 week ago. We booked a safari for our first weekend as my lining scan was set for Mon with retrieval set for Wed.
Surprise, our donor responded quicker to the meds than anticipated so we had to rush back to Cape Town so DH could give a sperm sample in time on Mon. Our donor ended up with 8 eggs & 7 fertilized. Fortunately my lining scan was good
Yesterday was day 3 and we were told that we have 1 great & 1 very good embryo and 4 so so ones and 1 dropped off so Dr. Le Roux decided a 3 days transfer was best and we are now in the 2WW. We will wait to hear until tomorrow if there are any to freeze but Dr. Le Roux was not optimistic there would be any. He did say he still put our chances of pregnancy at 60% with the 2 embryos he put back in
We are now in winelands and sadly I can't drink any wine but the setting is lovely. I joked with my husband that it is god testing me and if it means by refraining from drinking wine I can have a baby it's totally worth a wineless winelands
Hope you are all doing well. Fingers crossed for South Africa baby magic! Our test date is the day we arrive back in the US Nov 3 so am trying to enjoy the rest of our time here. Cape Town and the surrounding area really are lovely!
