There is a saying in the online infertility world:  Pregnant Until Proven Otherwise.  I guess that's how I feel today.  We transferred 2 beautiful, perfect blasts this morning at 9:30.  Now it's up to my uterus to grab and hold on to these babies!  We have 13 just as perfect blasts that will be frozen and 3 more that might develop enough overnight to be frozen as well.

Here are their pictures.  Aren't they cute?

Also, something that's not so cute?  Hyperstimulation!  It has happened again.  It doesn't seem to be quite as bad as last time but they are still keeping an eye on me.  The Dr. said he might need to drain some fluid next week but we'll cross that bridge when we get there.  It's frustrating that this has happened again.  Especially since my e2 numbers (like last time) didn't give us any indication I was at risk.  Just to give you an idea of the amount of fluid that is collecting in my abdomen, I took a picture this morning.  Although I don't have 6 pack abs, my stomach is usually flat.  You can imagine the looks and questions I'm getting from my neighbors.

Our blood test is scheduled for July 4th.  That seems like a really really long time away.  I'll be on bed rest most of the week so I'll try to keep up with the blogging to help pass the time.  That is if I can fit that in with all the tv I plan on watching.


  1. Big hugs and lots of love.

    Sorry you have to endure the hyperstimulation again....hopefully it is at least preparing your skin for greater stretching in the near future!!!

  2. Good luck! Yea, my belly looked like that too, except while it was like that I was in terrible pain.

  3. good lord. I'm really proud of you for going so far with this and hoping and praying for you guys.
