Transfer is tomorrow!!

I just got the call and we still have 12 embryos! Woohoo!!! I accidentally missed the call, but she she left a message saying that all 12 were looking really good. :)

They scheduled my ET for tomorrow at 11:30 am. I am supposed to have a full bladder for the transfer so I am definitely not looking forward to that. The pain of laying on the bed for 30 mins with a bladder that is about to burst is not appealing in any way. The only other option is using the bed pan they provide and lets just say, no thank you! The Valium they gave me should definitely help take the edge off.

I'm planning to put 2 embryos back tomorrow and freezing the rest. I'm still not sure though if they freeze on day 3 or day 5. I've only heard of a few RE's that freeze on day 3, but there is always a chance. I would prefer to freeze on day 5 or 6 though. I've read a few articles online about the benefits of freezing later. I guess we shall see tomorrow what my Dr does.

I'm feeling ALOT better today. Last night I decided not to take any pain meds because I thought I was feeling better. Well about 4 hours later I decided to take a half dose because the pain got pretty bad. Today, I'm not even on Tylenol and feel great. Still a little tender, but no real pain.

So excited for you and nervous for myself. I wish I was already so far along with my IVF cycle and had such a good outcome!

12 is brilliant!

I hate the full bladder thing too. The worst bit is when you have timed it to perfection but then they make you wait for your embryo transfer!

Best of luck for tomorrow.

I'm so excited for you! Good luck with the transfer! BTW, my 2nd RE did freeze on day 3 and then after one unsuccessful FET where we had transferred 3, we did another FET (transferring 3 again) and got our twins! Both times, they were thawed the day before and grew that extra day.
