This is our baby.
Yesterday went perfectly. I had my acupuncture before and after the transfer, and the transfer was text book. Our embryo thawed at 100% and is still a grade A.
Now it’s all about laying around and resting. It is such a weird feeling. The clinic wants you to rest in a reclining position for the majority of the time which is supposed to be for 3 days. Now. You all know how dedicated I am to bed rest. However, this is more like be a major couch potato. No standing and cooking, no chores, I can shower and fix myself snacks. But everything in my being is back to being overly protective of my body. I feel guilty for using the bathroom, or sitting up too high, using my stomach muscles to turn or standing for that matter. It is a very weird psychological struggle. In ways I’d like to go back to room 221. Such silliness, I know. But it’s just proof how much the human body is a creature of habit, and why we do silly things based on our past experiences. Which is the very reason I had a massage the night before transfer and acupuncture the day of. Because that is what I did last time…and last time it worked! But! The last time I was annoyed with the 3 days of rest…this time it’s a cake walk, enjoyable actually! :). And this time with a much better TV to watch!
