I made a promise to myself to always dress up to the clinic to keep it from feeling so serious and sterile. Here's a glimpse at the exam room:
|The glamorous life|
Because we were already doing a procedure using a catheter, we went ahead and did the Trial Embryo Transfer. The purpose is to determine the length and direction of my uterus. It's basically a road map for our Dr, so there are no difficulties on the actual transfer day. She triple checked and it went in smooth & easy each time. They are actually discussing no cervical stitch needed for this cycle, which will be a first!
I ended the appointment with a quick blood draw to check my Vitamin D level. I spoke with the nurse briefly about last week's blood draws (DHEAS & TSH). They both came back normal, which surprised us both! I've had to take dexamethasone every cycle due to a DHEAS imbalance.
Needless to say, I'm really taken back by so many good things in one appointment. Totally a God thing. Lots and lots of prayers from friends, family and complete strangers. I'm a very positive person, but it's easy to second guess things when it comes to IVF, especially with our track record. I'm so thankful for Gavin, but knowing that it took 4 cycles to conceive him makes me anxious. I'll keep praying and trust His timing.
There's no better way to celebrate a great appointment than with a sweet treat. So, we ventured over to Germantown and found a new favorite, Red Bicycle, a coffee and crepe house.
