Pushed to 5 day transfer on Sunday. All 9 are so far doing well and growing appropriately. They didn't give me cell numbers :-(
The will call me on Saturday with the time of transfer and once I am at the clinic I will get the final report with grading. Great, DH is out of town and I won't even know the grading ahead of time. This means I will be totally on my own making the decision if one or two (if we have two available).
We said unless the doctor calls our blasts "fair with limited implantation chance" we will stick to one. I hope they will keep growing strong during the critical period from cleavage to blast. Praying!!!!

So according to my calendar if my AF arrives anywhere between Dec 19-Dec 26 then my EDD for next cycle would be the end of Sept- first part of October. Ugh....I really wanted a summer baby! But I guess I will settle with whatever I can get!!

About what dates in January will you be doing IUI?

I think that's a good plan! Your RE will help guide your decision.

Linds, you'll get a kick out of this. When looking for donors, they give you "look-a-likes" and one says "Patrick Dempsey". mcdreamy, lol

I think we found our donor... I bought the baby picture, some similarities to DHs baby photo... I'm just nervous it will look nothing like me and all like our donor.

You bought the donor's baby picture? They have that option? Our bank will let us do a computerized match thing - well they do it for us. We can give them pictures of us tell them what we want the baby to look like and they'll match the top 10 donors. They do that for free.




I'm glad you picked your donor :) I have that fear as well that the baby will look nothing like me. You'll love the little one no matter what! My son looks absolutely not a thing like me. He looks like his father and my mother and I don't care. S/he will be yours and that's all that mattes.

Yes, It was $5 bucks. I did the computerized face match too, but the full picture matching that a consultant does is $65 dollars, and DH actually said he doesn't really need to do that.

Thank you AF for arriving 3 days early. It's my Monday. I'm fighting a cold. And I start my new job Monday morning @ 6 am after I get of my other job Sunday @ 1130pm. Awesome. It's going to be a LONG weekend.

AF showed up yesterday, 2 days early for me!! I'm worried about AF, in the sense of (TMI) flow, because I'm shooting a wedding on Saturday, and will probably not be able to use the ladies room so frequently....



Just think, hopefully only 1 more AF for a while after this one.. .right?



Hope you feel better!!! Good luck on the new job on Monday :)
