Frozen embryo transfer take 2 - Booked!

When I rang to get my blood test result it was all on! Being 'monitored' is a funny thing. I ring after so many tests and it is so dull, but when it's happening even the receptionist seems pumped! She rapid fired out instructions:
  • you don't need another blood test
  • transfer is on Friday
  • start luteal phase support tomorrow
  • how many do you want back, 1 or 2?
  • call on Thursday to find out what time your transfer will be
  • organise to pay your cycle fee
  • do you know what you need to do?
  • Okay good luck.
So my frozen embryo transfer is officially booked. Tomorrow our embryos will be defrosted. I'm pretty sure it is a more sophisticated process than a few minutes on low in the microwave. Over the next few days I will be able to find out how they are progressing right up until they put them back in.

On Friday Matt has the last day of school with his students - he's going to be getting wet and wild, Queensland waterslide theme park style. Meanwhile in a hospital room 100 kilometres away, I'll be with a doctor, and a number of strangers, getting knocked up -  well at least we both hope so. 

Thoroughly modern conception.
