The Lucky 13 are still going strong! All 13 are still growing, which just amazes me. They like them to be 6-10 cells at this point. Eleven of them were 8 cells this morning (ten graded 4- and one graded 3+), and two were 7 cells (one graded 4- and one graded 3+). I'm not sure if 4+ is the top grade or just 4, but we're very pleased with the report. So we are definitely moving forward with a Day 5 transfer on Tuesday.
I'm very relieved. Although I feel much better today than I did a couple of days ago, I'm still not 100% and I'm grateful for 2 extra days to hopefully keep feeling better before the transfer. I'm still having some abdominal pain and my digestive system is NOT functioning at 100%. And although I'm still really bloated, I think the fluid has probably gone down quite a bit. I'm still waiting for a call from a nurse today with my instructions for Tuesday, but they will do an ultrasound before the transfer to check for fluid. I hope that by Tuesday, there is none left.
I am going to work tomorrow and I'm trying to figure out what the heck I can wear. None of my pants fit right now and everything is really uncomfortable except for very loose happy pants that have either elastic or a drawstring waste. I don't actually own any skirts or dresses-I just never wear them. Too bad I can't just work from home, but I really need to get some face time in, even if it is just one day. I'll be off Tuesday through Thursday and then back to work on Friday.
The snow disappeared pretty quickly yesterday and it was sunny by the afternoon. Today is sunny, but still a bit cool. It is supposed to be back in the 70's by tomorrow. Pretty typical spring weather in this part of the world.
