Frozen Embryo Transfer · IVF


Hy-Vee, like most grocery stores, will add something to their inventory if you request it incessantly enough. For the first two years I was back in Columbia, Hy-Vee refused to stock a KC staple of Margarita’s salsa. So, my parents would bring to me or I’d stock up when I was visiting. Finally, they started carrying it and true to my promise, I bought a lot. I make my own salsa, as well, but you’ve heard the old adage – “you can never have enough salsa.” So, I may not have guns in the apocalypse, but I’ll sure have some delicious salsa.

Last week, one of the Hy-Vee’s removed it from their shelf. Coincidentally, I’ve been exclusively shopping at another one, so perhaps the business has slowed. The absence of that familiar bottle caused me slight distress because I didn’t have any mild on hand. You see, apparently embryos don’t like salsa that’s too spicy, so I needed to ensure I was appropriately stocked. Thankfully, disaster was averted when I went to my frequented store and I was able to solve the problem. Overall, I know the acidity is high, so I’ll be avoiding, but I generally eat a bowl per day (like soup) so it’s nice to have in case of emergency.

Other than irrational salsa preparation, I’ve prepared a bit of food and tried to get most laundry done. As soon as J awakes from his slumbie, I’ll be changing the sheets to prepare for the horizontal party I’m about to have. I’m going to work this AM, will have acupuncture at 2:15, then will go with a full bladder to my transfer at 4:30. We are so elated to be at this step and are focusing on these tiny beautiful beings that will soon be tucked away in my uterus. I am thankful for all positive energy of any sort that you can send our way to help these guys implant. I’m also interested in movies, tv shows, books, or jokes to keep me busy and stress-free πŸ˜‰ for the next two weeks.

All my love.

  2. I am so excited for you guys, tears are running out of my eyes uncontrollably. I read Leah Remini’s book about Scientology on my cruise. It was interesting if you don’t know about the cult. Please let me know if you need anything, I can be there in 2 hours. Looking forward to PUPO!! Prayers continue.
