Transfer Day, Transfer Day!!!

My transfer was this morning. We woke up and got out of the hotel by 7 am and found that there was a small blizzard happening outside. The drive to the clinic (.9 miles) was beautiful. I have never been to Chicago or seen Michigan Ave, and I will definantly be back!

As soon as we got there we were bustled into a room and I was told to get dressed into a robe. This alarmed me at first because my IP's weren't there yet, and I was NOT going to let them miss it. They arrived really soon and we ended up all sitting and laughing in my suite. It was DH, IF, IM and DD and me in this little room playing and talking and watching the city. Great! Dr. Morris came in and said we had 2 beautifully matured blast for transfer this morning, 3 more ok ones, and 4 they were watching still grow.

IM and I were ushered- and by ushered I mean I was wheeled on a bed and she followed- into the room where the transfer would take place. I went in and the doctor told me what was going to happen and he transferred the little twins in while IM and I held hands and shared a smile and some tears. It was over in two minutes. I laughed and said "Boy that was easier then the old fashion way, and way less messy!"

Then I had to sit in the room for a half hour, and rest. IP's brought DD a sweet teddy bear, and gave me a card, a sweet snowflake necklace, and a beautiful glass angel ornament. We all went to breakfast and had a great time. My IP's had to catch a train at 1 so we dropped them off at their hotel and we are now back in our room getting ready for a nap. We got in last night at 12, and finally went to bed at 2. This mornings appointment was crazy early and we need to rest, especially since I am now "carrying" twins!

I will be seeing Dr. Morris as well. Can you tell me about his medical screening or evaluation process? I should be able to make my appointment w/ him next week.
