Two Week Notice

Yup, that's right, I am officially in the dreaded 2WW...actually it is more like 12 days since I did a Day 2 transfer. Prior to my transfer I had a wonderful massage which I was pleasantly surprised by. I am not one for being touched, and given that my massage therapist was a man, I have to say that it was heavenly. I freaked out a bit prior as I was expecting a women but instead I was greeted by a very tall man who just happened to be a local city cop that took up massage therapy 8 years ago as something different to do. I was a bit intimidated at first but he was so nice and comforting. He knew that I was nervous so he talked to me for a bit and shared the struggles that he and his wife went through with their first daughter. He also told me about the little girl they adopted from China as they couldn't have any more children due to the circumstances around their struggles. After the massage, we proceeded downstairs to the OR. My favorite RE was working (thank God!) and he told me that everything looked great. We transferred 4 beautiful embryos, all of them of the highest quality. I stayed on my back in the OR for about 25 minutes (trying not to pee myself) and then I was brought back upstairs where I had a hour long acupuncture session where I ended up falling asleep. 

Overall it was a good day. Now I am just taking it easy for the rest of the weekend. The only complaint I have (yes, only one) is that I am having quite a bit of pain. My RE said that I could take Vicodin but I am afraid that it will "back things up" and I am thinking that is already part of the problem. So for dessert tonight I will be having grape Gatorade with a shot of Miralax. Hopefully that will help!
