Amazing

This is Allison~

Wow, what a truly amazing experience. It was so awesome to see what the dr was doing on the U/S monitor. Right before she released the embryos, she counted. 1, 2, 3....then we saw a little white dot on the screen. That was them. Our two embryos they implanted. I got choked up. I especially got choked up when I heard CJ praying in the background and afterwards. I got choked up when they handed me the embie pic and then the U/S pic of after the transfer. I really almost lost it when the dr was shaking my hand and telling me good luck, hoping for great results, etc. It felt like she talked to me and shook my hand for at least 5 minutes, but I know it wasn't. It was just so special, the whole thing.

If Doug would let me post this one pic of us both holding the pictures, you would get a wonderful laugh. If you don't know already, Doug is not big on emotion. :) So, we have named that pic as Doug's Mug Shot. I'm all smiles and he's holding his pic at his chest and he looks like he's prisoner #2021. He's not smiling or frowning, just looking like he's just been hit by a train. Anyways, we got a good kick out of it.

I spent most of the day at Jenn's today. Her hubby cooked burgers and hot dogs. I did all the fixings, etc. It was a fun day. We just chilled out, talked, etc. I know she's sick of laying around. It gets old after a while. But it's all worth it. It's almost over - the bedrest that is.

Now the fun part. Yea, right, I'm joking. The waiting is going to drive us crazy. I think Jenn is going to do her first HPT sometime on Wednesday. I may need some valium.

Until later.....

Oh, thanks everyone for the comments and prayers! They truly mean so much. It's so awesome that people that we don't even know care about this journey. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the support. It means everything......

Allison, the days sounds completely magical--the perfect way to begin your baby book! I'm hoping to hear some positive news in a short while!

Jenn, I'm wishing you many, many implantation thoughts! I look forward to watching you grow Allison's babies!
