Two embies on board!

Voila’, transfer done. We had two day-2 embryos transferred. They were the ones that got the highest scores from the egg biopsy, but not the prettiest ones. One had 4 cells, the other 6. Not much left to do now. Just waiting. Two long weeks…

I have been feeling very stressed in the last couple of weeks. I guess I had a hard time digesting the stress accumulated during the IVF cycle with the high E2 and OHSS. I tried to do lots of stuff that would help: yoga, relaxation, hypnosis, acupuncture, osteopathy… They did help loads. The osteopath said I was too disconnected from my body, like my mind was elsewhere. She prescribed the following: eating meat, drinking some champagne and having fun dinner out, walking barefoot in the grass and making love with passion. I stopped asking a while ago..

With this in mind, we went away for a short but lovely trip over the weekend. We went for a long walk by the river in the countryside, walked barefoot in the grass, fell asleep looking at the clouds, visited beautiful flower gardens and had a lovely dinner out. I didn’t have champagne but I did allow myself to have a half glass of red wine (I know right, crazy stuff!). It was lovely and it got me to today as relaxed as possible.

Clouds Flowers Poppies

I really have done everything I could. I know the embies may still decide not to stick but at least I won’t have any regrets.
