"Oh yeah, uh huh, what's up, what's up, what's up??"

That's what the iCarly doll I have in my kitchen says when you press her necklace.  What's up is my HCG levels!  WOO!!!  We are officially pregnant!  First blood test was last Monday and my levels have been rising as their supposed to.  It's looking like there's only one baby in there and that makes me VERY happy!  Ultrasound will be January 9th to know for sure.

M&D are obviously thrilled.  This was definitely the best Christmas present I could have ever given them.  I'm so glad it took this time!  Now to keep thinking positive thoughts.  This is only the beginning!

Back to the waiting ...

We had our embryo transfer on Saturday morning.  We got the nice nurse this time. :)  We transferred two good 5 day embryos and one so so 6 day.  At least I think that's what we got .. it was a bit confusing.  I had no idea we were transferring three until the doctor handed me the piece of paper to sign.  I got my IM a bit upset when I said "Oh, we're transferring all three?" Apparently everyone thought I knew.  Doesn't really matter in the end ..  one more just means one more chance for it to take!  They made me stay on the table for an hour after the procedure.  An hour is a really long time when you have to pee!!!  At least it gave us all some time to chat.  M and D's 6 year old wants a Batmobile for Christmas.  Not a toy ...  the real thing!  :)  I'm hoping that his parents will be getting an even better gift, a big fat positive (BFP)!!!

I'm going to try VERY hard to hold out until Thursday to home test.  I know if I do it before that I'll just drive myself crazy.

I'm actually feeling a bit "off" today.  Kind of puffy and my stomach feels weird ..  trying to take this as all good signs and not just side effects from all of the progesterone.

Sticky thoughts for the next few days!!!

It's kind of a pain in the butt!

Literally!  I started my progesterone in oil (PIO) shots last night.  The first one is always the hardest for me to psych myself up for.  I do them myself as I found when my boyfriend did them, they just hurt more!  I've become fairly adept at jamming that giant needle into my backside, (even left handed1) but the first one always give me pause.  Last night's HURT and I have a nice bruise to show for it today.  It's funny though ..  even though (if the transfer takes on Saturday, which it WILL!!!) I'll have to do these nightly for 9 weeks and every one of them hurts and bruises ...  after they are done, I'll forget all about that part.

I'm pretty excited for the transfer on Saturday, but I'm still a bit nervous.  If it doesn't take I know M is going to be even more upset than last time.  I wish there was something I could do about that, especially so close to Christmas, but I know there's not.  All I can do is think positive!

Sticky, sticky thoughts!!!
