IVF: The Day I Got Pregnant

2 successful embryos! (One of them in the picture above). I was really happy with our result, but I kept telling myself:

One day at a time.

We went back into the clinic and we were informed that I was not be able to get the transfer done straight away – apparently I was at risk of OHSS (Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome). I couldn’t say that I wasn’t disappointed, but I knew that the best thing for me was to wait for my body to be ready again for the best chance of a successful pregnancy.

The clinic decided that we would have a go again in January, so we promptly booked ourselves a mini holiday to Queenstown. We hoped that it would be the last holiday that we had just the two of us. The next holiday we would be with the additional family member that we’ve hoped for. The clinic has frozen the two embryos.

Late January, we went into the clinic finally for the embryo transfer. We were able to watch the specialist working her magic but I couldn’t really tell what I was looking at! It was a strange day… It was a day that changed our lives forever. My body had taken on the enormous task of growing a human.

One day at a time.
