Gearing Up For Transfer!

The APN called today to set up our transfer- I was going to give all the particulars, but since some friends and family follow along I will just say its tomorrow. I want to be able to have that time during our transfer to ourselves- just Rob and I and our embabies (and nurses and doctors and techs…) but to not have to field questions until we are good and ready. To not feel like I have to update everyone until I am good and ready to. 

A lot gets taken away during IF. So I plan to treat our transfer just like the special private (as private as I can make it) moment it can be. 

The plan- empty my bladder about an hour before we are to arrive and then start to drink my 20oz of water to fill up my bladder. No Crinonine either until after the transfer. 

Wednesday I will start the Estrace twice daily- once in the morning and once at night. The Crinonine and Estrace will be continued until 10 wks into the pregnancy. 

Tuesday and Wednesday -and this is a direct quote -" I am to have no responsibilities and to remain laying down or seated whenever possible." No sexual intercourse ,lifting, jogging, horseback riding (hah!), aerobics, bicycling, vacuuming or floor scrubbing (well okay then!), swimming or use of hot tubs. 

I'm to treat my body as if its pregnant- until proven otherwise- PUPO as the IF Community likes to call it. 

Some of my very dear friends sent me a ray of sunshine today- Thank you Alexis, Holly, Kelly and Nicole <3 from the bottom of my heart! You guys made me feel so very loved!

How truly beautiful! 
There was no update on the embryos today- but I'm choosing to think that all 9 are still thriving otherwise they would have said something. 

If you are following along in the 90 Day Bible Challenge today was Matthew 4-6 (which I read at 2:30 in the morning- all the way through the entire chapter of Matthew, thank you insomnia!) Tomorrow is Matthew 7-9. 

I want to share Matthew 5:11-12 from the Easy to Read Version. You see during the wee hours in the morning when I can't sleep I read this version so I can fully understand what I am reading. If you have ever tried to read the Bible before and had difficulty getting through the language and text I highly recommend the ERV version. 

11“People will insult you and hurt you. They will lie and say all kinds of evil things about you because you follow me. But when they do that, know that great blessings belong to you. 12Be happy about it. Be very glad because you have a great reward waiting for you in heaven. People did these same bad things to the prophets who lived before you.


So on the eve of a big day for us as a family- and creating a family- we Walk by Faith that its all in God's hands from this point out. That we did everything we could and we can trust that He will comfort us no matter what.

Thank you so much for the continued prayers and love! Tomorrow is a big day for us and we are so very excited!

  7. Those flowers are beautiful! What thoughtful and generous friends you have :) As for tomorrow, it IS a special moment, and I hope it goes perfectly. Also, someone recently said they prefer PUPO to mean "pregnant UNLESS proven otherwise" instead of "until"—more positive that way. And honey, I believe in this for you. Tomorrow? You'll be pregnant! Best wishes to you and your tiny embabies.

  13. I love PUPO. When I had my CP last cycle I would tell myself that. It helped, if only for that moment. Wishing you the best of luck!
