After four days and three phone calls, I finally got a hold of OHSU's embryology department. They still have our embryos, and they are ready to hand them off to ORM for a $100 release fee. We're shooting for the embie road trip on the 27th - yep, we're going to pick them up at OHSU, drive across town, and drop them off at ORM. It's going to be fun and also weird. If we end up with babies from this FET I'll be able to tell them that I held them before they were even implanted, and they had their first road trip before I was pregnant with them.
We're almost packed and ready to hit the road for Chicago! How exciting. I stepped on the scale this morning and thought "crap, time to look a little more closely at what I'm eating" but shoved that thought aside immediately because deep dish pizza. If you've been to Chicago, leave me a quick comment and let me know where we should go while we're there! We're visiting Lou Malnati's for sure, and maybe Portillo's (I think that's what it's called), and yesterday I got tickets to the architecture cruise, which I'm excited about. We're also going to be visiting a couple of universities because we like to see what their rec departments look like (the rec departments are members of the association we work for). Even with all that we don't have a super jam-packed schedule so hopefully we can spend several hours just wandering around and seeing things. And the weather is going to be perfect too.
