Six more sleeps.

Six more sleeps until I go in for the beta. (for all you non-infertility types the beta is a blood test that measures the HCG levels in your system. They can tell at that point if you're pregnant or kinda pregnant. Much more accurate than a pee stick)
R and I have already decided that I will not POAS before the beta. (POAS= pee on a stick) In August after the frozen transfer I PeedOAS and we got really hopeful and then my beta #s were very low and then I lost that pregnancy...it was just too much. So we've decided to wait, uh, yeah I think, we've decided to wait until the beta. On 12/27. sigh.

Back to the real story here...on the 16th we transferred two beautiful blastocysts. (5 day old embryos) The doctor said they were beauties. They were both graded 4 bc. 4 being really good as the grading is 1-6, six is the best. The doctor said no one EVER gets a 6. Kind of like no one ever gets an excellent on their preformance review at work. She also said it's very rare to get a 5. 4 is good. Really good. The bc part is like in school A is the best etc. etc. Once I heard my embies were rated bc I knew they were mine. Had to be. I didn't even need them to confirm my social security number and the spelling of my name before they transferred them. I knew they were mine. They are just like R and I were in school. They grew to a grade 4bc and said "Eh, that'll do."

My mother being my mother said, "Well it's not that they weren't capable of being 6a's."

Right Mom, you are so right.

Just 5 more sleeps to go now!

Burrow in tight little embies. I know on Monday you'll give your mommy and daddy a really high number.
