bump #64: the transfer

This morning was our day 5 transfer of two little blastocysts.

 My amazing mom came all the way down to San Diego to be here for the big day. LOVE HER!!! She was so sweet and nurturing, hovered over my belly talking to the babies. "You can do it. We can't wait to meet you!"

 We were disappointed to learn that the two lower embryos quit growing at the 8 cell stage and we will hear the verdict of the remaining three tomorrow. We are hoping to have 2 to freeze for future use. Prayers please!

 Transfer complete!

And now I'm taking it easy for a few days and hoping for a positive beta on the 16th. My doggies are super excited for a potential new sibling. Maddie thinks it's a girl :)


  1. Yay!!! You're PUPO!!! I'm praying for you and for your sweet little embryos!! You look gorgeous- so happy, calm, cool and collected! XOXO

  2. What??! WHO WEARS A STRAPLESS DRESS FOR BEDREST??!??! You need to seriously rethink your relaxation wardrobe. ;) In other news...holy cow, PUPO!! Praying, friend!!

  3. Congratulations you are PUPO!

  4. Thank you for sharing your day - love the outfit. I could just feel the hopeful positive energy radiating off the images you shared! Praying for you and your husband and your little embryos. Stick babies, stick!

  5. Ha, I love Erika's comment… seriously though, you win the cute award. By the time my transfer came, I was living in sweatpants. I don't even think I put on any makeup. : )

    I'm so excited for you Bren! Hoping this is the beginning of a beautiful new chapter!

  6. Ha, why am I surprised that you look so cute for your transfer? Please refer to my transfer post to see what "real" fashion looks like: http://bjandaj.blogspot.com/2012/08/let-waiting-begin.html
