Great news: One embryo is normal! One perfect little potential baby. It was such a stressful day. The clinic called me three times today giving me a tiny heart attack each time. They were paper work calls but damn..IT! The last call I asked if I would hear about my kiddos today and she said yes. I told her that I was very nervous and she told me not to be. That really calmed me down. I don’t know whether or not she was privy to any information but the confidence in her voice made me feel calm. On the drive home I got a call from a Rhode Island number. It ended up being the RE so I’m glad I didn’t let it go to voicemail. He gave me the good news and briefly went over the plan for the ERA test which will start with my next period. Then we made with the pleasantries and his last words to me were “Lucky embryo number 12″… So that’s what I will name it… Lucky. It’s going to be a great Christmas!
Good news: We booked tickets to go to South Africa for Christmas! We’re set to leave next Thursday! I can’t wait to see my family and my friends. The best bit is my best friend is going to be there and I’m going to meet her sons for the first time. Her eldest is 3 and the newy is 4months ish. It’s going to be a good Christmas!
Bad news: N dropped a bomb on me that he can’t join me for the trip home. The job he’s doing currently is being delayed and we can’t afford to change his flight details. I am heartbroken. We’ve never spent Christmas apart and I really don’t want to do it. It’s going to be a bad Christmas…

Awe, I’m so happy about Lucky! And I love the name. 😊
But the idea of being separate from your husband for Christmas just broke my heart. I do hope you have a wonderful visit with your family and you are able to skype/facetime with your husband.
I’m supposed to be excited but I don’t want to think about leaving. I think the fact that we only have a few days to get used to the idea is making it worse. I hope by the time I leave I’ll feel a bit better. And yes, thank goodness for Skype.
Congratulations! I got my latest test results today, too. What a relief! I’m sorry your husband can’t join you for Christmas, but every time you get sad you can think about little Lucky!
Congratulations on your results as well! Wow!
Yay for lucky!!! One perfect little one is a wonderful Christmas present. I hope thinking about lucky will warm your heart during your Christmas apart 😦 that would be so tough

Yay on Lucky but 😦 to spending Christmas apart from your hubby! Separations are hard and to be apart at Christmas…I can totally understand why you’re not looking forward to it. Try to enjoy your family and friends though…you deserve it!!!
