We are in the waiting room. I'm bursting at the seams with excitement! "I'm so excited that I just can't hide it." Think sticky thoughts that the embabies and uterus will latch on to each other!
We are dressed and ready to go back! Just waiting for them to come get us.
They are transferring 2 blastocysts of grade D quality. They are rated A-F. Most of their babies come from C or D blasts. Blastocyst is the stage after morula.
The other 3 aren't even morulas yet. They have to be blasts before they will freeze them, so we will know more tomorrow.
We are pregnant until proven otherwise! The procedure is complete, thanks to Dr. Kallenberger! He was very nice. Told us he was going to give us some mood lighting as he turned down the overheads. Afterwords, I told him that I hoped it was as good for him as it was for me. We got a good laugh!
The process was definitely uncomfortable! Todd say beside me and let me squeeze his hand. So glad he was here!
Now, I'm lying in the bed in the post-op area at an incline with my head below my feet. We are visiting with the other couples behind their curtains. Betty and Ash, from Dr. Bundren's office, are here. She was right before me. Another couple from southern Oklahoma is next to us. This process is entertaining! I'll be upside down for an hour.
Amber and Brad, our other friends from Dr. Bundren, just went in for their procedure. This is so fun! We have all the curtains open because it's just Dr. Bundren's patients in here. We are all just watching the tornadoes on the news and cutting up together. The nurses said they've never had patients so friendly with each other. I'm enjoying this! All three of us are going to have stories for our babies about the day they were conceived...surrounded by tornadoes!
We are trapped in the hospital because of the tornadoes. The southern OK couple that left got stuck in the basement for an hour before getting back up here. I've been in this semi-upside down position for 2 hours, but I don't mind. It's comfortable, and we're still having fun. We did get a pic of our embabies. Meet Baby Provences!
We are safely at the hotel, and I'm flat on my back in bed. We're watching the news show updates in Moore. I'm praying no more lives are lost!
On one hand, this day will go down in history as one of the worst days in Oklahoma. On the other hand, it will go down in my family's history as one of the most joyous. It's so strange!
I really must share my favorite conversation of today because it gave us such a good laugh. (Betty and I both had Dr. Kallenberger today.)
Betty: Laura, I guess you could say we were both impregnated by the same man.
Ash to Todd: And we aren't even mad about it.
Todd to Ash: We PAID him to do it!
Laura: And you both held our hands and watched!!
Made me laugh so hard!
On a serious note, we are praying for all of the families in Moore! God bless you all.
