Leading up to this frozen embryo transfer I was filled with so much anxiety. I went into IVF thinking it would work. Even though logically I knew it was not a sure thing, my heart believed it would work. I was crestfallen (Despite the meaning, crestfallen is my favorite word.) when my fresh embryo transfer failed. That rude awakening stuck with me.
I had to battle with thoughts like what if this one does not work either, what if none of it works, what if I never become a mom, etc for weeks. The funny thing is once transfer day arrived all of that anxiety was gone. I woke up feeling good. I was grateful everything fell into place for me to go to acupuncture before the transfer. It felt like a sign that the acupuncturist (not my normal lady) asked if we could pray together. The only thing that didn’t go my way was sitting in traffic. I was in traffic so long I decided to start the video in the car.
The video below includes my frozen embryo transfer. It was basically the same as my fresh embryo transfer procedure. My cousin came with me again. You have to watch to the end to see a picture of my beautiful embryo.
