Ice Ice Baby

Google Images does not have stock photos of frozen embryos -- freezer was the best I could do.

Well, I got some good news Monday!  Two of our embryos made it to freeze!  We had 1 from our previous fresh IVF cycle, so now we have 3 frozen embryos!  Probably enough to do a FET (Frozen Embryo Transfer).  But, I am hoping we don't need to do the FET until we want a 2nd child!!!!!

I am feeling much better!  I was all hunched over and not walking well last week from Wednesday until Sunday.  My ovaries were so huge, they were knocking into all of my other organs causing referred pain to my back, diaphragm, uterus, and of course the ovaries themselves were sore.  I feel some slight discomfort still in the uterus area, but at least I can walk standing up straight!

I don't have too much to report other than that!  People keep asking if I feel pregnant, but really?  I don't think that is possible.  I mean, the embryos, assuming they have become blastocysts and hatched, and are implanting as we speak, still will not be emitting enough levels of hcg for my body to react as if I'm pregnant.  So, no, I do not feel pregnant.  Although, how would I know if I did?  I have NEVER been pregnant before.  Not even a hint of pregnant.

I have been baking more lately.  I have the most delicious pumpkin bread ever waiting in my freezer.  How do I know if it's delicious if it's in the freezer?  It couldn't be because Chris and I already ate the whole loaf in a matter of days?  We ate that sucker so fast I didn't even get a picture.  So, whenever I decide to thaw the 2nd loaf (probably soon, it's calling to me), I will post about it!  Don't worry, recipe to be included!


  1. You sound positive which is great and it's also so wonderful that you have embies on ice! YAY! So happy for you.

  2. Just wanted to stop by and say that I am thinking about you. :)

  3. Oh my goodness! You get your beta tomorrow!?! That seems so fast to me, probably not for you though! I am proud of you for not POAS! Wow, girl, you need a metal! I hate surprises so I was peein' on day 6! All the best to you, I am going to think of you all night tonight and all day tomorrow! Especially tomorrow morning! xoxo
