Jessica's Note: The Two Week Wait

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for your warm thoughts and prayers. The latest IVF transfer was complete perfection, all three embryos made it through the deep thaw and were healthy and viable. We had all three transferred. Mom tried to get it right, but they are not the "truimphorettes"; I called them my little "Trifecta".
I prayed that they would all make it to transfer and they did! My RE (reproductive endocrinologist) said that "the embryos landed in the perfect spot!" The nurse didn't even have time to take an ultrasound picture, and my DH watched it all with eyes WIDE open!! Now, we are in the dreadful two week wait.
We are hopeful, anxious, joyful, excited, anticipatory, and fearful all at the same time. I now have a small glimpse of all the great hopes and expectations new parents have! My poor dh is conservative with his feelings this time, as the last disappointment was just about all we could bear.
Mom and I had a wonderful time in Super Target this afternoon looking at all the darling Newborn clothing. I only have a few more days before I hope to celebrate! Lots of people are praying and waiting with me, I feel blessed that I am not alone. I really hope that I will have multiples, but one would be just as wonderful.
Thank you for commenting on Mom's blog, and I hope that I will have good news to share soon! The World Wide Web will not be a big enough arena for me when I have this news to share!
Jessica
PS: Although Mom called me "not a real stitcher" today because I didn't want to stitch!! LOL (She was teasing me!) I did end up buying DMCs at AC Moores with her for my LHN "Curly Q,"...and will not let her loose comment discourage me....unless anyone can define for me what a "REAL STITCHER" actually is!! :) I say a slow stitcher is still a Real Stitcher....tortoise and the hare, you know. :)
I really like the paper dresses I've seen on some of your blogs. The materials we have to make ours are so cool. I bought butterflies to put on mine today. Mom has the whole kitchen area cluttered with materials. I'd like to join the Paper Dress Swap with her.

Hi Jessica - fingers and toes are securely crossed!!!

And a real stitcher is anyone who simply enjoys the process. :)

All good thoughts and vibes coming across the Atlantic to you, Jessica. I'll keep everything firmly crossed for you.

And who's you Mom to say who is and isn't a 'real stitcher' LOL! It must be lovely for both of you to be able to share this sort of thing.

Good luck!

Jessica, I know what a crazy two week wait that can be! Hopefully you only have to go through it this one time! And I think you're a real stitcher - don't listen to your mom! Just kidding! :) Good luck with everything - it was great meeting you last week! :)
