So technically, I'm pregnant

Today I had my embryo transfer. The whole thing was kind of fun and the doctors were are in playful moods. They showed us the embryos in their little plastic house under a microscope. It was really neat to see them and it put everything in perspective.

They grade their embies on a scale of 1-4, 1 being crappy and 4 being lovely. I have a 3.5, a 3, and a 2.5. The last one had a hard shell and probably won't implant, but it made it an easier decision to put all three in. If all three were perfect 4s, we might have gone with 2 transferred, but the chances of all three taking are so slim, especially how all of my numbers dropped quickly during this whole process (16 follies, 8 eggs, 5 fertilized, 3 good ones).

My estradiol was 1972. They like it to be over 2000 so I'll be taking another HCG shot on Sunday afternoon. I was close enough to 2000 that the doc wasn't going push the extra shot on me, but he recommended it and said it would be my decision. It can only help, so we'll do it.

So for right now, I have three embryos in my uterus, meaning that I'm pregnant. Hooray! I'm also on bed rest for a day which is a double hooray. Now I have to keep my fingers, and my legs, crossed that Jack, Chloe, and Nina (24 fans understand) find a nice piece of uterus to settle in to.
