Less than 1 month away from embryo transfer! It still seems like it's so far into the unimaginable future, but in reality, 4 weeks is just 2, 2-week waits.
It was nice to see this last night (last birth control pill on protocol)
I have read so many mixed review on coffee and IVF. I'm pretty sure a cup a day is okay (I usually get a tall Starbucks latte or make a small cup of home brewed) but I'm terrified to do ANYTHING to mess up this baby. I've read several studies but just to know I did all I humanly possibly could, I stopped my love affair with Starbucks 3 days ago. It hasn't been fun. I'm not addicted, but I like the warm perk me up beverage early on my drive to work. Instead I've been drinking heated chocolate milk. Not quite the same kick but all for the love of the embryos.
The other "big event" this week was a legal document we had to get notarized. It was basically giving OHSU permission from both parents (aka us, sounds weird "parents") to unthaw our little frozen embryos. We had to acknowledge that they may not survive defrost (horrifying to think of), that they may not result in pregnancy (50% chance), and that I may have multiplies (bring it on!). I felt kind of awkward at the credit union with the notary lady. I mean, lets be honest, it's probably not everyday she notarizes the right to unfreeze babies. Lol.
