I can't stop smiling

Seriously - I am SO EXCITED that I can't stop smiling. Every time I think about tomorrow a grin just takes over my face.

Tomorrow morning 3 embryos will be placed in my uterus. How you ask? Kinda like a pap smear.
Here is what Wikipedia says (I edited a little to be more specific to my Dr.):
The embryo transfer procedure starts by placing a speculum in the vagina to visualize the cervix, which is cleansed with saline solution or culture media. A transfer catheter is loaded with the embryos and handed to the clinician after confirmation of the patient’s identity. A vaginal ultrasound is inserted to ensure correct placement, which is 1–2 cm from the uterine fundus.The catheter is inserted through the cervical canal and advanced into the uterine cavity, where the embryos are deposited. The catheter is then withdrawn and handed to the embryologist, who inspects it for retained embryos. Anesthesia is generally not required.

Don't forget that I have to have a FULL bladder during this.. FUN, HUH? They also gave me a Valium to take before the procedure to help relax my uterus.

So there you have it. I will report back tomorrow with all the details! Keep us in your prayers :)
