7.11.15 Transfer Day! For real this time...

We arrived at the OR again at 9:00 a.m.
It was a beautiful morning. 

Perfect day to get knocked up.

We were taken to room #5 this time. 

To our nice surprise it had a view! of the parking lot but a view nonetheless. We were going to be there a while so it was nice to have things to look at besides curtains.

The nurse came back and immediately started our paperwork and we were shown a picture of this perfect little scientific creation that's half DH & half Me.  

I stared at it for a while. 
Our perfect (to me any way) little 5 day hatching blast. 

A little back story: So when they called to cancel my 3dt, I told DH that I wondered was a great embryo looked like.  He said that it would be giving us a thumbs up. 

Fast forward to this day and he sees our hatching blasts and comments that the part that is hatching looks like a thumb. He immeditately declares this is a sign of good things to come. 
From your mouth to God's ears, love. 

So after starting at the picture for about 15 minutes I put on my lucky socks......

 and waited.

They finally took us in about an hour and a half later.
The procedure was quick.  They let us watch it on the monitor which is amazing.
If you're curious, Google > Egg Transfer IVF. Fascinating.
We saw our little embie put in what will hopefully be his/her home for the next 9 months and that was it. 15 minutes later were done.

We hung out for about 15 more minutes and we were sent on our way. 

I've had MANY IUI's but this was SO different.

With the IUIs you leave without anything other than the hope that sperm will meet egg and in 12-14 days you find out if they found each other or not. 
With IVF, you leave with this little almost baby floating around inside you hoping and praying that it decides to make it self comfy and stick around for a while.
In a picture it looks just like a little circle with bunch of cells but all those cells in the middle....they become your baby.
Those cells are enough to make a human.
It's scary how quickly one becomes attached to that tiny bunch of cells.
How quickly you can imagine if it's a boy or girl and all the plans you have for it. 

So now we do more waiting, and hoping and praying. 

Beta is schedule for 7.21
