all in one basket

18 Apr

this morning was one of the first times I was really stressing out about everything. went to breakfast bright and early expecting the phone to ring as i was biting into a delicious egg and avocado sandwich around 8 am. it didn’t. stopped at home depot to scope out patio furniture and purchase some gardening accoutrements. still no call by 9:30. back home again putzing around in the yard and chasing the dog. 10:30. nothing.  sitting on the porch watching m break clean the grill. panic started to set in. they called at 8am on friday what could possibly be the hold up? what if they aren’t calling because it’s bad? what if none of the seven made it? what if they just forgot to call? m did her best to calm me down by reminding me it is sunday and really all they are doing as far as i go is scheduling a time to come in for the transfer. but it is more than that – it’s the fertility report update that really matters. the “minor details” that had me precariously perched on the edge. and then finally finally the phone rang at 11:15. the embryologist woman asked if i had a pen to write a few things down. transfer time. arrival time. valium time. when to start storing water like a camel. as i am jotting these things down in big black sharpie i am thinking so clearly this is happening but how are the embryos? and then my fears were calmed – 6 out of the previous 7 are well on their way. i sighed a happy sigh. and hung up after the woman wished me luck. i feel like i can breathe again. and now i’m off to spend the rest of the day in the sun with m and hook before i gladly host my embryos and hope they decide to take up a more lengthy residence.
