Last Day in Delhi

It is hard to believe that time went so quickly.  Our last day was busy as usual.   We had a lazy morning then headed to Select City Mall.  We checked out the mall which was very western in style and a bit too pricey for us.  The only thing we bought was some whisky!  We headed to Delhi Haat after the mall.  Delhi Haat is a government run handicrafts shop.  Here you can get wood crafts, saris, paschmenas, marble carvings etc.  We did a quick last minute shop and got out of there.  Even though the prices are fixed by the government and there is no haggling, it is exhausting to shop there as the shop keepers start unwrapping EVERYTHING in the store for us to feel and hopefully buy.  We knew exactly what we came for so it was not too bad, but trying to get away from all the men yelling "madam, look at this" really grates on the nerves.  We were with driver Sanjay and he later dropped us off at Phoenix where we met up with Devender in the lab and Dr Shivani.  We decided to have Mark leave a "sample" just incase things do not work out this time.  Dr S said she would give us our final embryo detail later that night after the transfer.  Devender got Mark all set up for sample time and Dr S handed me my last injection of the trip - a low dose heparin to prevent blood clots on the long trip home.  Mark managed his sample and we said our goodbyes to the team and headed back to the hotel.

Dr Shivani arranged to have some extra pain meds delivered to the hotel for me and they arrived before 7pm which was great so we could lay down a bit before the long travel home. 
Around 11pm we received an email from Dr Shivani that our transfers went smooth and that we had six good embryos.   That was a releif and now hopefully at least one of them settles in for the long haul.  Just before midnight Rahul pulled up out front and we made our way downstairs with our luggage.  Here we are with the famed Rahul
Oh and also my security guard boyfriend :
We landed home today to many lovely emails of best wishes and happy birthday.  I got to enjoy an additional 10.5 hours of my birthday..probably the one and only time I will ever get to say that!
Travel home was flawless, just tiring.   Tomorrow I am back to work and Mark returns on Monday.  We are officially in our TWW!!!
