Well, it’s done. Both of my golden eggs fertilised overnight and made it to Sunday. I was beyond excited to get the call on Saturday to hear both had made it and incredibly happy to be having both transferred today.
I am exhausted now. Mentally and physically, I just don’t feel that I have anything left. The embryologist was not very positive about the embryos. They have a decent cell number for 2 day embryos (a 3 and a 4 cell), but the quality isn’t great. I have no idea what that means, and nobody has explained anything to me. I’m going to call them tomorrow morning for more information, because I need to understand what they meant. A glib, “the quality is middling” accompanied by a “so-so” hand shake gesture and a shrug of the shoulders just doesn’t fill me with confidence. I also have no information whatsoever about what happens next. What should I be doing? What shouldn’t I be doing? What should I eat or drink? What shouldn’t I? Is there anything I should avoid? Any advice would be very welcome if you know the answer to any of those questions.
I’d really like to write an elegant, carefully crafted and thoughtful post to explain what happened and my feelings about it all. Obviously if you read my blog you will already know that I can’t do that, so instead I will explain through the medium of cartoon. I showed this to my husband, who described it as “grim”. Happy reading!
