Thawing and Dude come back Anniversary

We are in Italy for a long week end at my parents' but in the last few days I couldn't help thinking that Oliver last year was frozen! And today was the big thaw and transfer day. Oh God what a day that was. I not only got my lonely 6-day slow blast safely defrosted and put back into me but we also got a call the very same day that our lost kitten (the Dude!) had been seen in the neighborhood and so my idea of a relaxing weekend to give the embryo a chance went completely down the drain. You can reed about that day here. If you followed me then, you may also remember that I didn't really hold any hope about this FET. It was my sixth transfer, never got pregnant from FET, and this embryo was probably the worst one we had out of all the cycles. God I feel terrible in saying it was "the worst" one, but in fairness it was...
...and today he's 18 weeks old! Doing great, he's a perfect flyer and eats like nobody's business, I'm so truly happy and blessed.

  7. What a difference a year makes, eh:) So glad for this anniversary.

    It's also instructive, just when you think you're out, when you don't hold out much hope...things happen.
