All done!

Well the transfer is complete folks! Our little frostie thawed just fine and the transfer went very smoothly. Actually we both agreed that this was the smoothest transfer we've had. I think I have mastered the art of relaxing so that Dr. Q can do what he needs to do, while not relaxing so much that I fear peeing on him. baha. ;) And in case this helps anyone in the future, stewing on a small amount of water a couple hours prior to the transfer is a way better method than guzzling a ton right before the transfer. I didn't even need to use a bedpan today. *beams proudly* lol. The embryologist said that the embie was a grade B, so not really a rockstar, but  a good embryo, splitting as it should before it was frozen and currently functioning as it should for the stage it's at now. 

It's funny to me how much treatment has become such a normal part of my life. I'm such a regular at the office that they can just say, "hey Denay, you know what to do. See you in a minute" when they grab me from the waiting room. lol. I've had a camera probe stuck up my hoo hah pretty much every week, and I'm not the least bit uncomfortable about my male doctor working in my genitals on a regular basis. It's strangely normal after almost a year of treatment. I'm so thankful for Dr. Q and his staff at C.A.R.E Fertility. They have truly made this experience as nice as it could possibly be given the circumstances. I really feel their care and concern for their patients. At the same time, as I walked out of that office today I felt happy and relieved that no matter how this ends, I'll never have to go back there for treatment. I just have to go in for bloodwork to get our results, and this chapter of our life will be closed and we'll be moving on. <3

  1. I just came across your blog recently (not sure how), and wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your faith & your positive attitude. My husband and I have been on the "baby journey" since Nov. 2009 and I've had 3 miscarriages. While our stories are different, I SO admire your positive outlook. Most days, I am not there yet. Anyways, just wanted to say hello!

  6. Best of luck Denay!

    Funny thing, my clinic is also called CARE Fertility and I'm also one of the "regulars" who they no longer explain things to. they call us by our first names and everyone knows us and our story.

    I'm praying for y'all <3

  7. I remember the day your parents brought you home from the hospital Denay! I lived in the apartment across the courtyard from them and was so excited to see you! It's been many, many years since I've seen them or you. However, I think I accessed your blog via Kelley and Mario just can't remember. At any rate I've been praying for you both. No matter the outcome I know God has great things for you both!
    Blessings,
