Surprising News...

My transfer is tomorrow, October 1st! They called this morning saying there were five very strong embryos that were standing out from the rest. Their thinking is the strong embryos are better off inside me than in the lab (especially since they can tell so soon of their quality), so they want to transfer tomorrow. I was surprised, for I had the impression yesterday that we were transferring as a 5-day. Wow, tomorrow is the day!

Then, a lightbulb went off in my head! I forgot to take my antibiotic and Medrol. I know the antibiotic is a precautionary drug to help prevent infection, and the Medrol is for any inflammation. I started the meds one day late, so I'm praying that won't affect our success in a negative way. The nurse said to start taking them today, and there's nothing we can do about it now. I am mad at myself for forgetting, but I'm trying not to let it bother me too much. I don't need the stress. I keep thinking at this point, God will be determine if this transfer is a success.

I feel great, though...a little nervous but I more excited than anything. I hope to post tomorrow, but we'll see. I'm looking forward to meeting my beautiful embryos tomorrow. Hopefully, they like their new home! :)


  1. Wow! Congrats on the bump up in plan. That sounds good to me. I didn't take a anti-inflammatory and only remember taking the antibiotic the day before or day of transfer (memory fails me now) so I don't think you need to worry about that. Good luck!! Sticky thoughts for you and the embies.

  2. Thanks for the luck and encouragement. All went great! :)
