I had my last orgasm last night, and fell promptly to sleep at 11:30pm. I woke up at 3am, wide-eyed, body feeling the post-traumatic effects of yesterday’s altercation with my dad. Despite trying to fall back asleep, I wasn’t able to, and just laid in bed until 6am when our alarms went off.
I showered, put on a cute dress, guzzled the two cups of water needed to fill my bladder, and had a bowl of oatmeal. Then, we were on our way!
At the clinic, one of the nicest nurses received us, and they were running on time. We changed into the gown/smock, booties, and hair nets. We also had Dr. C, who we’ve never had before. He is a very petite flaming Asian man, which DW took as a good sign.
They thawed two embryos: one of our excellent grade ones, and the other lower grade one, which they regraded as excellent as it developed more after it thawed.
This is them:
Lying on the table, with my feet in stirrups, the ultrasound tech measured my uterine lining (9.7mm), and then the doctor inserted the speculum. He had a lot of problems trying to thread the catheter through my cervix. He must have tried for 5 minutes, and the pain of the catheter being repeatedly forced through was causing my uterus to cramp. It hurt like hell, and I shed a tear or two, but it was neat to see it on the ultrasound. Because of how long it was taking, they sent the embryos back to the embryologist. The doctor then sent the nurse to fetch a special curved catheter called a “Sydney catheter”, which worked like a charm through my S shaped cervix. The embryos were then deposited into the middle of my uterine cavity, and the embryologist checked the sleeve and saw that one embryo was still in there. The doctor set up the speculum and Sydney catheter again and deposited the second embryo again.
Because I was the last patient for the day, I got to stay laying down in the room for 15-20 minutes, all the while chatting with the embryologist and the nurse.
We then headed upstairs to get blood work done.
My progesterone levels are going to be checked on Thursday or Friday, and our beta is on the 13th.
For the next two days I’m supposed to be on bed rest, which so far, sucks. I am so bored, and just really want to go for a walk with my wife and dogs. My Darling has been taking good care of me, making me food and catering to all of my fetching needs. She is awesome, I love her so much, and I hope I can make her some babies.
