Our First Day at Work – 1/20

(Remember, I wrote this down as it was happening, but the actual date is below!)

Friday, January 20th 2012

Today was my first day back at work. It’s a little surreal for life to be getting back to normal after such a momentous event happened. Also, it’s a bit of a bummer to change out of PJs and leave the couch after 2 days, but life goes on. I just tried to conspicuously drink my hot chocolate and switch my heating pad from side to side:) Thankfully we had a training in the morning (that was good!!) so I just got to sit back and listen.

I saw my client who has 22 month old triplets that I ADORE this afternoon… Although there’s a very, very small chance we would get triplets, I am hoping with joy over both babies surviving and getting the double blessing of twins!! The multiple world is one I have been begging to join for years:)

We hung out with our good friends Grayson and Carlie and got to share in our joy with them for a bit. So thankful and excited for another day with our babies!!!

And just in case you’re wondering, here is chart from NYU Fertility Center showing what happens between an embryo transfer and pregnancy… hoping and praying these babies are implanting and growing!

5-Day Transfer

Days PastTransfer (DPT) Embryo Development
One The blastocyst begins to hatch out of its shell
Two The blastocyst continues to hatch out of its shell and begins to attach itself to the uterus
Three The blastocyst attaches deeper into the uterine lining, beginning implantation
Four Implantation continues
Five Implantation is complete, cells that will eventually become the placenta and fetus have begun to develop
Six Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) starts to enter the blood stream
Seven Fetal development continues and hCG continues to be secreted
Eight Fetal development continues and hCG continues to be secreted
Nine Levels of hCG are now high enough to detect a pregnancy
