So. Now we wait.

All went well today - and thanks so much for your good wishes. I checked my phone shortly before we went into the transfer room, and it was delightful to know people were thinking of us.

Totsicle survived, and the transfer went without a hitch: three times now, and I think I have finally perfected the art of full-enough-bladder-without-hideous-discomfort.

Beta is next Saturday the 22nd, though we have told our families it's the 24th, to give us either a.) a few days to deal with disappointment, or b.) time to get through the second test. Once bitten, twice shy.

I am under no illusions whatsoever that I will be able to resist the pee stick. Drugstore. Tomorrow. Then, the wait really begins.


  1. So glad that everything went well. Try your best to rest and watch lots of bad TV!!

  2. All the best to you! I will be pulling for you. Hope you have some fun & distracting things planned while you wait. Sending you all positive thoughts. Hugs!

  3. Congrats on being PUPO! Very exciting! Crossing all my fingers and toes for you! Our IVF beta was on the 22nd as well (of August 2011) and we've got a 6 mth old baby girl to show for it :) So Im thinking the 22nd is good luck!

  4. Aaaaaaah!!! Primal scream!!! Hurry up and get here, Sept 22nd!

  5. Happy to hear transfer went well! And now, longest. week. ever. ;) Hoping good things for you guys.

    P.S. Kudos for the wisdom of giving yourselves a few extra days to share the news with the fam.
