Transfer is Done! Yipee. We got to the clinic a few minutes early, and I didn't think this would be a big deal as last transfer we got in 30 minutes early and were out early too. This time I was ready, bladder full... busting to move. We waited an additional 30 or so minutes beyond our scheduled appointment because the folks in front of us apparently didn't understand that full bladder meant FULL bladder and once in there- they wait for you to fill up so it's just a matter of drinking water and waiting. Not the fault of the staff -- they give fairly explicit instructions to have a full bladder and they tell you the time to start drinking and how much to drink. I should have sensed something when they were in the waiting room and they were the only folks without water bottles. Fortunately the RE knows me fairly well by now and he was fine with me letting some out. That part pretty much sucked-- having a full bladder and I think I ended up letting a tiny bit out 6 different times while we were waiting-- and we waited 30 minutes after our scheduled time, which means the folks behind us had to wait as well. Once we got into the room- we were in and out in minutes--3 little eggs tucked safely away.

On the way home we hit traffic-- but bed rest this past weekend was good. I got to stock up on my video watching and Hubs was totally awesome taking care of me. Even when I was cranky, he was still there. Made me meals, and brought me water and took the dogs out so they didn't pester me.

The dogs apparently got into Poison Oak this past week-- not sure how they did that since they have been running at the beach- but we've got it all over. We are both incredibly sensitive to it and my arms are just covered in a red itchy rash and it's spreading to my neck, shoulders and legs. Not much I can do but let it runs it's course at this point and try not to scratch.

Anyhow, we take our first blood test on July 2nd and the second one on the 4th. Since the 4th is a holiday here we'll have to wait until the 5th. So we won't know anything until then-- they never tell you the results until the 2nd test results are in and I am not planning to watch for symptoms since I already know I don't show any so early on. I'll post if anything comes up- but as of now- the eggs are in and cookin'.

Excellent! Hope you're going to stick to the not obsessing over symptoms, given your past experience. Fingers crossed.

Great news Ellie! My transfer is today too so it looks like we will be enduring this 2ww together. May we both end up with happy news at the end of it. Hugs.

Glad it went well!!

I'm so sorry about the poison oak - that is horrible!! I hope you find something to take away the itch.

Hopeful Mother said...

So sorry to hear about the Poison Oak - not exactly the right type of distraction during the 2ww!

Hoping for really, really good things, Ellie!

Carol said...

Congrats on a good transfer!

And yes - trying to pee off just a little bit is very hard! I had to do that many times (at my many transfers!). I never seemed to get the water quantity just right - it was either too little or too much.

Glad to hear that the rash isn't stressing you out.

congrats and good luck! not watching symptoms is the only way for me to stay sane during the 2ww, though i know it's easier said than done. i just remind myself that whatever i think i feel doesn't mean a thing. hope it flies by with lots of fun distractions.

Good luck, sounds like you're doing just peachy. I'm winding down my own 2ww. Beta is Friday.

Samantha said...

Glad the transfer went well! I remember one time my RE running late for the transfer, and was just "drink and pee" all afternoon for me. I always like to be first on the transfer list!
