Surprisingly, it looked very different to this picture when we saw it on the live screen before transfer. Even though it was tiny, I could see a really clear Inner Cell Mass - whereas on this image, I don't see it clearly at all. I'm assuming that this image was captured a little earlier in the day and that it had continued growing up until the transfer time, which I hope is a good thing.
It was a nice experience, except for the part where my cervix decided to disappear and play hard to get. We had a different doctor this time around doing the transfer who was lovely, and I think I'll request him for future transfers. It took him six (!) attempts with a speculum to get the ball rolling, but he was very gentle and very thorough.... and most of all, very kind.
Come on Olaf, lucky #8! Please stick. Please, please, please. Let this be a magical start to 2016. :)
The ball is rolling for 2016's first transfer.. and I'm a combination of petrified and excited.
CD1. New year, new cycle, new chance to try again.
We're back to a FET progynova cycle, popping those oestrogen pills & using up one of our remaining few frozen embryos.
After a horrendous few months of being forced to sit on my hands and wait, it feels good to get moving again - even if the idea of more disappointment/loss is terrifying.
Come on 2016... don't let me down! It's GOT to be our turn soon.
