WE did it!!

We had the embryo transfer this past Tuesday...Valentine's Day. It was a perfect day.

I was able to spend a few days with the A & M while they were in town, and we had a great time together. I will miss M giving me shots--they were pretty much pain free!

How am I feeling?
I feel good. Resting a lot. I've been cramping since the afternoon of the transfer. I heard this is common with IVF so i'm trying not to think too much in to it. Easier said than done though. I worry about EVERY little thing that I feel.  Last night I had an overwhelming feeling of tightness in my lower abdomen. I kept moving around to get comfortable, but nothing was working so I just went to bed. The medication that I'm taking causes pregnancy like symptoms as well, so its hard to judge what's going on down there.

And now the dreaded two week wait. I will have blood drawn (BETA) on Monday, 2/27. This will tell us if the transfer was successful. Of course, I will be peeing on a stick before then...but I will keep those results to myself. ;)

LOL, sorry guys!! My IFs want to wait until the BETA for results. They read my blog, so I can't share my pee sticks updates.
