Transfer day!!

...and now we wait! The absolutely longest wait EVER!! Ok, maybe it's only 1 week, but seriously it draaaaaaggggssss.
Anywho here are the transfer deets:
Once we were all prepped the Dr let us know that 12 embryos made it to day 5 and of those 12 that were tested, 7 of them were "normal". There were 2 boys and 5 girls. My IPs and the doctor all agreed to transfer the best ones, which was one boy and 1 girl embie. So they took me back to the transfer room and got me ready. (This included filling my bladder because it apparently wasn't full enough) FML. That was sooo uncomfortable! They were filling my bladder while pressing down on it with an ultrasound wand at the same time...not cool. I was sure that I was gonna pee on the doctor :\.
After that ordeal, my IPs and hubby came back to the room to watch the transfer. It went perfectly and super quick! I could tell that my IPs were excited, nervous and hopeful all at the same time; after the transfer we went back to another room so that I could lie down for 20 minutes (reminder: bladder is BEYOND full!!) The nurse offered a bedpan but that was not about to happen! I'm so glad I had company to keep my mind occupied or I might have caved for the bedpan. After the 20 minutes, I pretty much ran to the bathroom (never been so happy to see a toilet in my life), we took some pics and said our "see ya laters" then went on our merry way. :-)

I've had a little bit of cramping today which I've been told could be a good sign of implantation. Lets hope so! 

Beta will be on Sept 3rd!!! Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers! 
Here are a few pics from the big day :) 

Kev wore green for good luck too! (So did IM) 
Ready to get'er done!! 
Cropped out IPs for their privacy, but look at those beautiful embies!! :) *The nurse took this crappy pic, btw* Geez, don't they teach photography in nursing school?? 

TTYL peeps! (PS. I will prob POAS, but I think my IPs read my blog so I won't post until after beta ;)
