Monday's transfer went very smoothly. I had an acupuncture session just prior to the transfer, and another following the transfer. Michael's mom stayed with me and held my hand during the transfer, and my mom waited and prayed in the waiting room.
Both embryos "defrosted" perfectly according to the embryologist. One was already hatching, and they considered that to be a very good thing. Hatching just refers to the stage of development where the embryo is expanding out of its protective exterior in preparation for implantation in the uterus. One of the embryos was considered to be grade AA and the other grade BB. Those grades usually refer to the expansion of the embryo and the inner cell mass quality. My doctor has told me that my embryos were good quality, and on Monday he said he thinks we have an excellent chance for success.
Since Monday afternoon, I've just been taking it easy resting in bed. Today is my first day out of bed, but I'm supposed to be sedentary through Sunday. I'm being well-cared for by my mom, Michael's mom, and my sister.
The pregnancy test is scheduled for next Thursday. We're hoping and praying for a positive result, of course. Thanks for keeping me in your prayers and for all the wonderful messages of support here and on Facebook. I really appreciate all the love!
