2 Amazing Sweet Peas!

This morning I had 2 beautiful embryos transferred!  I got to the clinic early and had to fill my bladder for the transfer.  By the time I went into the room I was very uncomfortable.  They let me let out some which was hard and I went back into the transfer room.  Boy was it tight.  My mom and sister Rachel came with Nate and I.  Then we had the doctor(not Dr. Hill but a nice, funny woman doctor), the ultrasonographer, and 3 embryologist.  They verified who I was and loaded up the catheter and then I heard the doctor say "transferring" and then it was done.  The doctor did complement my uterus.  She said it was beautiful and I made her job easy, so I am taking that as a good sign.  Then I had to lay with my feet up for 10 min and it was by far the worst 10 min of my life.  I thought my bladder was going to explode and paired with the cramps I was in agony!  I really thought I wasn't going to make it to the bathroom.  Finally the 10 min was up and I ran to the bathroom after flashing some nurses because I couldn't get the sheet around me fast enough.  After I finally had some relief the impact of what just happened hit me! I can't believe they are in me! I can't believe I made it this far! I had a lot of ups and downs and I just hope the good news keeps on coming.  The doctor today gave me a 50/50 chance.  Now I just sit and wait for the dreaded 2 weeks and try to heed the advice from all my family and friends to NOT taking any home pregnancy tests!  I will make an honest effort but I am not promising anything.


  1. The two week wait is the worst! I didn't realize that you had to keep your bladder full for 10 minutes after the procedure. I guess we can do anything if it means having a baby. :)

  2. I am not liking the 2 ww much . As for the bladder if your clinic makes you do it I am sorry for you. My bladder hurt all day yesterday and it felt like I had to pee constantly even when I went to bed. Today it is a lot better. I am also paranoid they are going to fall out at any big movement. We torture ourselves for a baby!
