Transfer Complete

We transferred two blastocycsts this morning at La Jolla IVF. The procedure was much the same as last time with the main difference being location. Last time I kept my own clothes on and we were in a quiet room with a typical OB/Gyn table... this time I was asked to strip and change into a hospital gown complete with hairnet, and then we moved into the OR (which is right there in Dr. Smotrich's facility) for the transfer. I have pictures of the two blastocysts and of my uterus after transfer. I will try to get those posted soon, but, I'm on bedrest now and the scanner is out in the garage. :-)

I wore my lucky necklace (a gift for luck from my IPs) and was able to speak with our Intended Mother just prior to the transfer. She wished me good luck, and of course I wish her luck too!

Dr. Smotrich prayed over the little ones and spoke of Genesis 1:28 where God tells his people to "be fruitful and multiply". I believe I caught him with a tear in his eye... :-) He truly wants his clients to have the family they are seeking. And so do I.


  1. Glad things went smoothly. Can't wait to hear about your positives soon!!

  2. I will keep you and those precious babies in my prayes. Love you
