Today is the first full day of bed rest.  I am supposed to take it easy tomorrow as well, though this clinic is pretty lenient about this part.  I kind of agree, but am also so scared of losing whatever chance we have to actually get and stay pregnant. 

We had a grade 1, 8 cell embryo!  Seriously, they gave us a picture, I have never even seen one, nevermind one that came from us.  We also put in a grade 2 and 3, both 8 cells.  They were not supposed to put back 3 but i kinda pushed a little, due to the fact that this is the fifth IVF.  Dr was willing but made us both sign a paper stating that he explained that chance of triplets!  TRIPLETS, HA!  We can't seem to get one to take and he wants me to sign saying I understand the risk.

Like I understand it anyway, how can anyone even imagine the possibility of triplets when we have already had so many disappointments. 

I am trying to avoid anything that might affect my belly area at all, no coughing, no sneezing.  Seriously, I might be a nut, but whatever happens I want to be able to say that I did everything possible. 

I really hope at least one takes, two even.  Three would be daunting, but we would deal.

I am going to try to get H to scan the picture soon so I can post it.  He is already talking about trying to match the kid to the embryo when they are born.

God the fall from here would be absolutely devastating.  If this fails we will be destroyed.

Please work, grow embryos, grow.

Your embryos sound great! It is very exciting to see their pictures - for us it was "Wow - this is the first actual product of the two of us!"

I've always wondered/wished that you could tell which embryo became which baby - very intriguing! I hope we both make it far enough to even ask this question! :-) You are on the way though!

I hope your bed rest goes by quickly and you have good news soon. Hoping/wishing/praying for your embryos to grow and at least one to stick!

Grow! Grow! Wishing all the best for you.

Hope bed rest doesn't make you too batty. H is hilarious.

I am so happy that you had such a good embryo! And that you were able to transfer three. Grow, embryos, grow!!!
