Water Ultrasound and Embryo Decisions

Today I had my "water ultrasound" and everything looked great! I'm so thankful! This means I don't have any uterus abnormalities that they think would cause miscarriage.

The RE also looked at my ovaries and said they look great and have no cysts, and that my lining already looked good and had a 3 ring structure (like a planet).

So from here, more shots, more ultrasounds, and the transfer on the 25th.

The biggest question we had is how to transfer. The doctor would like to thaw all 20 embryos and grow them out to 5 days (they have already grown to three days). He'd then choose the best graded embryos to transfer and freeze the rest. My worry is that they aren't going to survive the thaw, then some won't grow to 5 days, and some won't survive the re-freeze. And if this doesn't work (God forbid) I'll be left with none. And doing another fresh transfer cycle is not an option.

I don't know if anyone else has gone through this with an FET, but I'm definitely going to need to think more about it. I know that 20 embryos is a ton, which makes the thought of losing 20 even worse for me.

Thankfully everything else looks good and we're just so grateful to be where we are right now. Bring on the biggest shots I've ever seen in my life, I'm ready for anything.


That's right, I will be listening to this song every time I get a shot for the foreseeable future. And if this works, I will name one of my children Lil Jon.

  1. Hahahaha you seriously have me cracking up!! I will now always think of you when I hear that song!! Hilarious!!

    Definitely a big decision about how to do the embryos. I hope you'll be able to come up with a decision that you're comfortable with. Saying many prayers for you.
