FET complete and the wait begins!! Oh and Happy ICLW Week..!

Yesterday was our FET. I must say the whole day went really well and I felt really relaxed....or maybe it was the vali.um....  Either way I am hopeful this will be the one and I can move forward with my life.  I felt anxious Sunday night but felt good Monday.  Went to acupuncture appointment pre FET and that went well. I wasn't even nervous which really surprised me.  Transfer was at 11:30.  I was worried about having a full bladder since last time it wasn't as full as it should have been, so I drank lots of water. This time doc made me pee twice to lessen the load and it was still on the full side! I was relieved to know two of of little frostie babies survived the thaw and we still have three left.  They weren't 100% (one was 90% and the other 80%) but it sounds as though this is still perfectly okay. After transfer went back to acupuncture and received a post session along with Moxi. (a little lighted stick of mugwort~sounds Harry Potterish to me!~that heats points on your skin. Interesting. It's supposed to help with implantation.  The rest of the day was spent dozing and relaxing. Hubby cleaned house, cooked dinner and took care of me.  He is the best!!

Today a very old friend flies in from Japan. She was an old foreign exchange student we have kept in close contact with all these years, I was about 10 when I saw her last.  She wrote me last month saying she was coming here for work.  This has been my only beef with this transfer.  I know I am not supposed to do much and just take it easy and I will.  I will have plenty of time to visit with her until she leaves to join her co-workers on Thursday night.  I am planning on riding up to pick her up from the airport. I wouldn't miss that for anything! I think plans today are light, lunch with my mom and dinner with my dad (who are divorced since she has come) as she wants to see them too.  As far as I am concerned this isn't overexertion. 

Now that school is over I hope to be a much more active participant in June's ICLW. I am hoping you all will help get me through next Wednesday when we find out if this cycle worked.  I truly hope it is.

Hugs to all of you!


  1. YAY! I am so excited for you. I am praying this works for you. After my transfer I wasn't on bed rest or anything - just was to 'take it easy' - which is sounds like you are doing, so I wouldn't worry about seeing your friend, riding to the airport isn't too strenuous! Enjoy your visit!!

  2. Congrats on being Pregnant until Proven Otherwise!!!

    After this transfer I took a day or two off and rested but then i was back to work, I just made sure that I didn't do any lifting,

    Sending you lots of sticky dust!!!

    Happy ICLW

  3. Wishing you the very best of luck with the FET and I hope you have a wonderful time with your friend from Japan.
