Our last remaining embryo (a 4AB day 6) was transferred on Wednesday, May 20! On the day of, I wore my “I Believe in Miracles” shirt, the Promise necklace given to me by my best friend, Shontel, and a bracelet + necklace set from The Vintage Sparrow. Like last time, I was told to come without wearing anything scented on, so no lotions, no perfumes, no oils, nothing. I didn’t even wear makeup.
Transfer day for embryo #2 was very different from the last one. There wasn’t a hotel stay involved or anything like that. We didn’t make it a mini-vacation. Instead, we completed the round-trip the same day (it was 5 hours instead of 6!) , which wasn’t my favorite because I wanted to relax after the transfer, but I wasn’t comfortable staying in a hotel during Covid-19. There is no way to know for sure how well a hotel has been disinfected, so it wasn’t worth it. Instead, we trekked back home and I just stayed as relaxed as I could in the car.
Also, due to Covid, Zoey wasn’t allowed to come this time. Instead, she stayed home and some family came to stay with her. This was the first time since March 17 that we had seen any family… I’m so grateful for their willingness to come be with her and give her a fun day since she couldn’t attend the transfer with us.[Read more…]
