A Wee Bit O' Optimism


So firstly, thanks for all the comments and shout-outs. They are such a huge help. I am still kind of bummed that more didn't fertilize, but on the plus side, this is a shitload better than last time! I guess I sort of erased from my mind that last time my doc essentially transferred a bunch of garbage into my ute. At least this time around I have actual embryos! I'm calling them Zan and Jayna.

And now for a funny little story. W had to "produce his sample" as they so nicely put it, at the RE's office, which was a first for him. We live close enough that in the past they've said it's fine to do so at home, but this time I decided we should do everything different that we could. Anyway, when I asked him how it went, he said he tried starting out with a Penthouse, but had to choose a different mag because there were too many articles! Luckily he was able to find something "raunchier" that did the trick. So ladies, I guess when you hear that old "I just get it for the articles!" it might actually be true!

I'm sorry there are only two, but as you said, it only takes one. I hope Zan and Jayna keep growing and looking great. And, of course, I'm keeping everything crossed for this cycle!

It was "Hustler" that did it for my DH.

Grow, grow Zan and Jayne! I am worried about my husband "doing his thing" at hte RE's office. I am half tempted to call ahead and see if they have dvd players or something instead of mags ... these poor men

That is so funny! :) I hope 'JZ' are rapping up on a storm right now (hardy har har) :)

Sorry I missed the fert report and I am sorry that there are only two but try and keep the faith, I am hoping that Zan and Jayna are nice and strong and growing nicely for you! Hoping this is the one!

Von said...

May they grow into big strong babies that will give you a run for your money in 9 months time.
Best of luck and I'll keepp everything crossed for you.

Leah said...

C'mon, Zan and Jayna, make your momma proud! I've even got my eyes crossed for your fert report this morning.

Jen said...

Wonder Twin Powers, activate!

That's hilarious!

Wishing you the best!

My husband goes prepared. He brings a portable DVD player with his pre-qued selection ready to go! He said that the magazines and videos they have are pretty outdated. Oh well, whatever works, right?

I am glad you are ahead of last cycle. It could mean good things are to come.

Leah said...

Hell-low? Fert report? Transfer time? I need some details so I can obsess about my cyclesista!

E - I am just catching up here but wanted to let you know how much I feel for you sister, what with all of your ups (Zan & Jayna) and downs (pg friend) over the past couple of days. Sending you a big, ginormous hug.

I think W deserves some of his very own porn.

Good luck!
And when my husband had to produce his sample, he reported to me with some disappointment that "they didn't have anything harder than 'Vogue.'"

Courtney said...

Thanks for the support Erin! Good luck with embies! In my book, 2 is a good number. :)

Kristen said...

So funny about the magazine! I guess I can't get mad at DH if I see him pick one up ;)

I hope your embies are thriving and that your ET goes smoothly!

Lots of luck! XOXO
