Frosty The Embryo

We officially have a frosty! Or is it an emb-cicle? Or an emb-lolly? Ok, that last one sounds gross. I best make my point before I spend hours trying to come up with cute nick names for a frozen embryo.

I got an email from the clinic letting me know that out of the 3 embryos that were still going strong on my transfer day (one of which we implanted) 1 was able to be frozen. Now I'm not sure what's good or bad when you have 5 eggs fertilize but I'm pretty happy about it. One perfect embryo to implant and one perfect embryo to freeze.

Obviously I'm hoping that the one I've got on board has snuggled in for the long haul, but it's nice to know that I've got a frosty as a plan B,,, or perhaps a future sibling if I may get that far ahead of myself. : )

In the meantime I'm doing all my injections and staying off the wine,,,, and I'm in Spain right now so that's really rough. My needles and I have been to Spain, then back to London, then to the US, then back to London, then to Spain again. I've jabbed myself at home, in hotel rooms, and even in a rental car (not while it was moving of course). I'm sure the other visitors to the Arlington National Cemetary wondered what exactly I was doing but luckily no one rapped on our window or called the police to report drug use in the parking lot. All of this in an effort to keep my hormone levels up. All of this in an effort to get that positive pregnancy test and a baby to take home.

I've got a bit more time to wait until my beta next week on the 17th but I'm keeping my hopes up that this one is a keeper.


  1. I really hope this one is a keeper. x

  2. Yeah! That is good news :)

    I've always called them 'totsicles' ;)

  3. emb-lolly haha, I like it :) When my friend had her transfer she told people she was pupo (pregnant until proven otherwise). It made me giggle too. Fingers and toes are crossed for you!

  4. Hope this one is a keeper!

    I've just discovered your blog and look forward to reading more :)

  5. Thinking of you, and hoping your keeper sticks around for the long hall.


  6. Sending positive vibes your way!!!

  7. I've got a couple little baby lollies floating around somewhere too but H keeps saying if we did it again he doesn't want a child with freezer burn. Men! I'm so praying for you!!

  8. Fingers crossed for your precious cargo...and thanks for sharing. I remember the excitement of it all and also of feeling I had to wrap myself in cotton wool.

    Sending love and hope your way....
