After our visit with our embryo recipients, Jenny and Erin, they headed back to their hotel. The embryo transfer was scheduled to occur within 24 hours. I'm sure they were nervous and excited.
We didn't expect to hear from our recipients for a while after the transfer and we had no intention of bothering them, but after the procedure Jenny and Erin thoughtfully contacted us to let us know everything had gone well.
They had chosen to stay in the hotel for another day after the embryo transfer. There is no hard evidence that this improves embryo transfer success rates, but it couldn't hurt.
Jenny and Erin went home two days after their transfer. They would have blood work three days later, but not to find out if they were pregnant. That information would not be available until after the dreaded "Two Week Wait". More on that later.
