Egg McMuffins & Horse Needles

Started our first progesterone shot yesterday.  That’s the Queens we, I just did the sticking, she did the receiving.  It went very well.  Again, I prepared the needle, a 1 1/2 inch 22 gauge monster with the progesterone.  She couldn’t lay on her belly this time as she already looks 2 months pregnant and it still hurts a bit from the retrieval.  So she bent over the bed.  And yes, my mind wandered.  Anyway I iced her ass for about 5 minutes, swabbed it with alcohol and jabbed that bad boy in.  Again, no pain, no discomfort, she hardly felt a thing.  A quick back rub later and she was all ready to watch TV.  We have to get good at this, as you have to give progesterone shots every single day until she get s a postive on the pregnancy test.  If pregnant, you have to continue till around week 7, so that is 7+ weeks of horse shots.

Got the news from the embryologist today:

If you remember, they retrieved 19 eggs.  Of the 19, 14 fertilized, and the numbers are in:

We have 7 embryos that are graded as AA’s (the best of the best)
And 5 are AB’s (awesome)
And the rest are B’s.  (still great).

Looks like implantation will be on Sunday.  Unfortunately due to medical conditions on my side, they can’t freeze our embryos, so hopefully this works.  Will give you more news when we get it.  Wish us luck!
