IVF #1, Day 17: Night before Embryo Transfer

Tomorrow, our little embryos will be 5 days old!  Tomorrow we will transfer one or two of them (we won't know for sure until we get there).  So, tomorrow is the BIG-BIG day!

Today, was a pretty great day.  I felt so much more like my normal self.  My bloating was down significantly!  I was very pleased.  (I was able to fit into some denim shorts that weren't even close to closing last night!).

This evening was the BEST time we've had, as a family, in a very long time!  In honor of International Babywearing Week, we decided to  share some laughter:

Five minutes before the pic was taken, KJ came running downstairs, saying "In honor of babywearing week!" —and she ran downstairs wearing a pull-up DIAPER!!!  LOL  (I gave it to her to use, for play, with her stuffed animals)  I had to explain to here that it was not baby week —baby wearing week! haha.  She changed to her night gown and happily joined in on the fun. :)

We laughed so extremely hard —I nearly pee'd my pants!! LOL  The laughter lasted, for what feels like, all night.  It truly made tonight the best.night.ever!! hahaha

My bum is super sore, from the nightly injections of progesterone.  I decided not to alternate sides, every other night.  I figured I'd rather have one really sore side, instead of two annoyingly sore sides.  I'm not sure how much I'll last with this plan.

I'm really, really, hoping to sleep better tonight.  I've still been waking up multiple times, to tinkle.  It's more annoying than anything.  I don't understand it because I don't tinkle that often during the day, when I am actually drinking glass after glass of water.  But at night, I can't sleep more than an hour or two before I absolutely have to get up to tinkle.  Last night I even had to get up twice in one hour again.

Not much more to update about today.  I successfully kept my mind busy, around the house and with KJ's school work.  So busy, that at 11:48pm, Chris reminded me that we still needed to do tonight's injections.  I flipped out!  I can't believe that I forgot.  It should have been done around 10pm.  :(  I hope it doesn't change or mess anything up... I am still on Doxycycline, Medrol, and, of course, the progesterone injection.

I don't have much else to share but here are a few more pics from tonight:

We literally dropped everything as soon as we remembered we had forgotten the injection.
Chris crashed right after he gave me my injection.  It must be tough giving nightly injections... hee hee.
