Went in for blood draw this morning, so now I'm waiting for a phone call from both the nurse and the embryologist for instructions for Wednesday. I spoke with one of the nurses yesterday when she called to confirm how many embryos we wanted to thaw. I told her initially they recommended all 14, but I had asked about 10 and was told that was fine, but no less than 10. I finally just told her that I wanted them to do whatever the doctor thought was best. So I actually have no idea how many they thawed yesterday or how many made it through the thaw. We should find out this afternoon.
In addition to the pro.metrium, I started 2 viv.elle patches yesterday and today I start the tetra.cycline and me.drol. I also started back up with the baby aspirin. This wasn't actually part of the protocol, but when I asked, I was told it couldn't hurt.
In the meantime, I'm busy nesting and getting ready for 2 days of bed rest. For me this involves renting movies, loading up my ipod, doing laundry (all dirty clothes, plus sheets, towels, and even the duvet cover). I'm also going to see if we can get the guest bedroom ready for our visitors today, so that I can avoid too much work next weekend when I am PUPO. Sounds like a fun Sunday, huh? I bet you're jealous.
Blood work all came back good. Still no word on thaw, but I was told they decided to thaw all 14. Yikes!
Today's tune is "Falling Slowly" from the Once soundtrack. We rented the movie last night and, while I wasn't impressed with the movie itself, the music was great.
The theme of today's photo is:
Here are some pictures of Scout when she was a puppy. She was soooooo soft. She's still pretty soft if she gets a close grooming and you can feel her undercoat. She used to sleep in the strangest positions. Sorry, I've gone a little overboard with the puppy pix. It is too hard to pick just one or two.
