DEmbryo transfer on 5/9! OMG!

I just got the call, my transfer will be on Thursday, 5/9! I can't believe it. I called DH and told him, "our holy crap mantra has officially been replaced with 'holy $hit'" (pardon me...) I can't believe this is happening so quickly!

Tonight, I start with the rest of the meds, and we'll probably head to NY on Wednesday night for the transfer on Thursday, and stay there until Friday afternoon so I can relax for a while. Oh my goodness, this is insane!

Thanks for letting me freak out!

SAIF/PAIF absolutely ALWAYS welcome to respond!

    ME:45 MH:43 DE IVF 2014
    Met with RE 4/11. 2 IUI's BFN. DE best option. Switched clinics to do "shared" program. Had to retake all tests and a mamm that put me behind and then on a DE waiting list for 12 months. Picked a donor!! (10/13/13) Got matched. Estimated transfer in December. After 2.5 years of patiently waiting I will finally cycle....can hardly believe it. DE cycle got cancelled. One of her tests came back positive.  Waiting for another donor. Donor picked!! (1/18/14) Hoping for an April transfer. No more setbacks please!!

    I think it's a blessing when things happen quickly. It did for us, too.  So exciting!  Wishing you the best!
    After almost 11 years of marriage and four IVF attempts, our baby was born in June 2013.
  • Yay!  Lots of luck.  You're just a few days ahead of me...I'll either have mine on Friday or Sunday.
