I am 4 days post transfer after my first IVF. Before going through the cycle, I expected the first two weeks to go quickly and the second two weeks to go slowly. The opposite has proven to be true so far. The first two weeks were so horrifically long that I am shocked only one week has passed since the retrieval. My DH and I joke that to make time stand still, all you have to do is start IVF. However, I am finding that I want this next two weeks to go slowly. Why you may ask? Because for only the second time in three years, I am pregnant. Sure, medical professionals would disagree. But, our two embryos (our babies) are in my uterus. Obviously the question remains, will they survive. Regardless, my are our babies. For two weeks, I get to be pregnant (at least as far and TB and I are concerned). That is such an amazing feeling. I feel like I am finally at peace. So, I am embracing my 2WW and of course I will be anxious for the results to confirm what we already know- that our babies finally physically exist.
