We are all set for our final embryo transfer on April 14th. I heard back from the ERA rep at a Igenomix as well who said that she reviewed our records and the data shows a 90% chance that this indeed is my window of implantation time, which made me feel good, and so now the only thing left to do is to hear back from my fertility doctor to confirm if he can get an anesthesiologist in so I can be sedated during the transfer. I really really hope he doesn’t push back on this one, as I want this last chapter to be as serene as possible, you know?
In the meantime I’m just focusing on self-care and enjoying knowing that spring is just around the corner. I had my acupuncture and cupping / massage on Monday for 2 hours of pure r’n’r, then have physical therapy tomorrow and chiro at the end of the week. I’m particularly grateful that I have been “prescribed” to do Sphinx or Cobra pose as much as I want during the day…Wheeeeeeee! Hey when you have a sucky back you take any small victory you can get in moving your body a new way.
And I’m assuming all of you saw the incredible gorgeous Beyonce at the Grammys last night in all her twin pregnancy glory after going through IVF multiple times herself??? From what I read this was their last attempt before they headed towards surrogacy or adoption and so, hey, even if none of this is confirmed I will take it as inspiration 4 our final try. Will I be like Beyonce or Amal Clooney? Who knows, but for now it’s time to get my head into gear and prepare once final time for the possibility of motherhood via my own womb.
“Yet, it seems like the more abuse I get, the more abuse I court -baring myself more extravagantly, professing opinions that I know will draw an onslaught – because, after all, if I’ve already adjusted my body temperature, why not face the blizzard so that other women don’t have to freeze?”
