Since we have one precious embryo (we are calling it "Uno") and don't have to choose the best from the group, Dr. D is having us do a 3-day transfer instead of a 5-day transfer. There is one school of thought that says if an embryo does not make to the blastocyst stage (day 5), then it would not make a viable pregnancy anyway, but the other school of thought says my uterus is a much better place for Uno than a petri dish. We are trusting Dr. D on this one.
HK did my first PIO shot last night (in the handy circle the nurse drew on my upper hiney with a Sharpie), and he is a straight shooter. It didn't hurt at all. I was super proud of him. We iced it down first (my hiney), and I asked for the Progesterone In Oil made with ethyl oleate instead of sesame oil. It's not as thick, so you can use a 25 gauge needle instead of 22. Those 22s look HUGE in comparison! So, I am a bit sore in that area today, but I am not dreading the nighly PIO ritual now that I have one behind me, so to speak.
We are very excited about the transfer tomorrow, 12:30 pm. Hang in there Uno!
