I hope you know that the title of this post is simply to amuse myself. We are a long way from actual children. But this may be as close as I ever get, so I am going to enjoy it, darn it! I am thrilled to introduce to you our embryos. Mr. A thinks the top one looks a bit like him. The bottom one definitely has more features of Sattva.
You can tell that I am completely green when it comes to IVF. You veterans reading this, please go ahead and laugh. I'm ok with that. I like talking "as if" though. I feel like there is something sane in that mode of thinking. Sure, this may not work. But 2 embryos have been deposited inside my uterus, the same uterus which was sporting a very nice lining and is being maintained by lots of nice progesterone. There are good reasons for this to work. I can be sad and depressed when/if it fails. But I am going to enjoy this for now. It's nice to feel excited and happy. What a concept!
Mr. A and I walked slowly to the farmer's market this morning (10 minutes away) and walked slowly back. That's the extent of my movements for the day. I freaked out when I sneezed. But not too much, that might upset the embies. We purchased one fresh, organic pineapple that I intend on consuming slowly over the next few days, including the core. Thank you for your input on this matter.
I had lofty goals of reading articles while lying down yesterday, but who am I kidding. I am so distracted! I just watched Jun.o in the afternoon, and then some episodes of Gre.y's Anat.omy in the evening. That's as far as my intellect could take me. I sure need to ramp things up. I'll get back to finalizing my slides.
Thank you for your wonderful comments and for keeping us in your thoughts.
