On Wednesday, the clinic finally called Elizabeth's cell phone at 11. The told her that my embryos were doing well, and my transfer had been pushed back to Friday for a 5 day transfer. She asked the nurse how many embryos were left, and the nurse said she had no information on the matter, but that we could find out after the transfer.
So today, I got up nice and early. I took a pregnancy test to make sure the trigger shot was out of my system. And then I called out "sick" from work. This is something I rarely do. I especially hate calling out sick on Fridays because I know it looks suspicious. But what can I do? I relaxed and had a leisurely morning at home with the dog. By 10:00 I was getting very excited for the impending phone call. By 11:20, I was frantic. I was sure that all of my embryos had arrested. At 11:30, I finally called the clinic to find out what was going on. Apparently my embryos are still looking okay, but are a bit slow to self select. I have been pushed back to a 6 day transfer. I tried once again to find out how many embryos are left, but the nurse had no information and said I could find out at the transfer.
Between not knowing how many embryos I have, how the embryos are doing, or when the transfer will take place, I am very frustrated with the lack of information from the clinic. Patients are not allowed to contact embryology. We live in a world where people can monitor their pets at doggy daycare via webcam. I don't think it's too much to ask to get an update on my potential future children.
