Quickie update: Transfer tomorrow

We're set for transfer tomorrow at 10 am Pacific.

As of this afternoon, all 3 embies are still growing. I have no info beyond that WHATSOEVER, and I did my level best to get it!

From the nurse's wording ("We've determined which embryos are best for transfer"), it certainly sounded to me like 2 out of the 3 are looking better and may be the only ones available to put back. But when I asked for a number, she wouldn't say, and when I quoted her words back to her to support my reasoning that we'll have fewer than 3, she wouldn't repeat what she'd said or confirm my suspicions. She simply said all 3 were still growing. No doubt she just LOVES trying to communicate with us end-of-cycle/end-of-rope IVF chicks.

I mentioned that I'd gotten much more information during our last cycle (allowing for the possibility that it was different because my RE was the one calling me then), and she said, "Yeah, we've really backed away from that approach. We want you to hear it straight from the embryologist."

So we won't know anything until we check out the photos and sign the final report 15 minutes before the procedure.

I am a bit of a wreck today. Things aren't TOO bad. No crying or shouting or screaming. Just moments of feeling super low and others of feeling startlingly scattered. DH has done his best to logicalize me out of the down moments, and that does work on me.

I'll spend the rest of the day watching movies, cooking/eating a big pot of chili, harassing the dog for snuggles, and spending some time with my meditation CDs. Maybe I'll hit up DH for a back massage, too.

This is kinda fun: When I logged on just now, I noticed yesterday's post that I titled "3, 3, 3" (for 3 mature eggs, 3 embies, 3-day transfer) was posted at 3:33. I did not know that!
