Questions for those of you that have had 2 pregnancies

When I first found out I was pregnant with Jadyn I had all of the typical AF signs. I was cramping, breast tenderness, freezing to death and starving. Well,, the starving thing wasnt typical but I soon figured out why I was so So anyway, I had a c-section with Jadyn. Since then I experience no cramping or breast tenderness around that time of the month. The most I ever get is a small back ache. So the question is....... Did any of you out there have cramping in your first pregnancy but not the others? I sit around waiting for the same symptoms and I'm not even sure if they would

I mean personally and in all honesty I don't think my IVF worked. I didn't exactly have the best embryo's put back in. I could get the shock of a lifetime though I suppose.....

Child Leashes/restraints

Why am I talking about Child Leashes? Well because this is my blog and I want to. I LOVE child leashes. I NEVER have had to use one on Sister because she is actually very very very well behaved in crowds. She is good about staying with us, holding our hands or sitting in a stroller. She actually would rather ride in her stroller than anything. I think child leashes are EXCELLENT especially for in crowds. It also gives your child some freedom and exercise. However, yesterday I saw a woman walking her child with a leash on which isn't bad BUT I was irritated. It wasn't a busy area at all and the kid was about THREE! Your child will never learn to behave if you put the leash on them every time you go outside. She has to learn discipline at some point. She is not learning a damn thing being leashed in a non busy area!!! Now that I call pure laziness.

Why is it that...............

People who deserve kids have a hell of a time getting them, if they can at all, and the ones that abort, abuse, shake, neglect, starve and kill their children have no troubles at all breeding. And they say there is a god......... pffftttt!!!! The more I see the less I believe.

The remaining embryo's.......

Didn't make it to freeze. I knew that was going to happen but I was just hoping that just maybe a small miracle might happen so I wouldn't have to do retrieval again if I ever want more. However, I do know if this takes this time around we are DONE! I just can't do this fertility crap anymore. I'm not even sure yet what we are going to do if this IVF round doesn't take. I don't have any more insurance $$$ to cover another round. Maybe we will just be happy with what we have already :-) Sometimes I do wonder if I am crazy for wanting to do the infant stage I guess time will tell..................................

"Buddy G, My Two Moms and Me."

Buddy G, My Two Moms and Me is about a little boy who is being raised by two mommies. I think it is absolutely wonderful that someone made a cartoon about a child having 2 mom's!!

My guts feel like they are going back to normal. I can actually walk around with little to no pain. Who would of thought one little needle in the ovaries would make you hurt so much?? Perhaps now that I am not in so much discomfort my body can think about implanting an embryo or 2???..... :-) What if all 3 implant?? OMG..... I will definately be looking for volunteers...haha!! My RE did tell me if it resulted in triplets he would babysit..... Maybe he shouldn't be so sure of
I didn't get a report yesterday on my remaining embryo's. They must still be kicking it up. Let's hope they hit a growth spurt and want to be frozen :-) Wishful thinking, I know! We all have to dream at some point in our lives :-)

Not to hopeful

I went in for my Embryo Transfer. The best they had were a 6 cell and 2 4 cells. We transfered all 3 of those and 4 are still in the lab being watched. They don't expect them to make it to the freezer :-( They would like the embryo's to be a 6-8 cell for a 3dt. So we transfered atleast one Okay one. I don't have much hope though. I just want to be the lucky one for once......

Fertilization Report

I have SEXTUPLETS!!! Out of the 19 retrieved, 8 of them were mature and 6fertilized. Now, let's just hope and pray and hope and pray that they make it until Sunday!! My Transfer is at 10:00. I wonder how many are boys or girls?? Perhaps maybe we will even be lucky enough to put two in freeze??? Please please please.


I am quite sore today. It actually started last night when I felt like I birthed a basketball out of my back side. Why the heck would my bum hurt? I didn't have a I took some tylenol and it made me feel a little better :-) I am just tender today. My insides hurt when I walk. I did my first shot of PIO ( progesterone in oil) in my hiney cheek this morning. It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I will continue these until the beta test. If that comes out positive I will do these for 8 more weeks. Oh the joy!! I started Medrol lastnight too. I guess that is so my body won't reject the embryo's when they put them back. Also this morning I started the Tetracycline to stop any infection that might start. So, right now I am taking:
Baby Aspirin
Just call me the walking drug store.....lmao
Will update later when I get my embryo report.

Retrieval is ALL Done :-)

I went in at 8:00 a.m. They called me back pretty quick to start an IV. There I sat and sat and......sat. Finally about 9:30 they came to get me :-) The anthesiologist says " Now, the grate up there on the ceiling is going to start looking a little wobbly to you. Shit...... I barely even got a look at the grate and I was waking Sue and I actually have a lot of fun pre op and post They retrieved 19 eggs. The doctor said because of my Polycystic tendencies that probably only half will be mature. As long as 2 make it to transfer that's all we care about :-)

So, tomorrow I will have an update of how many fertilized and when for sure tranfer is!

Lastnight I took my trigger at 9:30. I have to be at the Dr. at 8:00 for Egg retrieval. I am quite nervous. I don't know if I hate the thoughts of the needle going in there or the sedation part more......... I really don't think I like the thoughts of either.

Tuesday, August 5, 2008

Ok, Seriously this time ( I Hope)

Retrieval has been moved back to Thursday....... I wish someome would make up my mind

Retrieval date moved

Ok, the Dr. wants to do one more day of injections. Retrieval day is now Friday :-)

OMG MY guts HURT!!!!

So, I haven't been updating the fertility because well, I guess I just haven't wanted to talk about it. When it's the same ol same ol. It just gets tiring. This time we MIGHT actually get some where. Don't hold your breath though, you will probably pass out. I have about 30-40 follicles in there. I had a DR. appt. this morning and he said we are probably going to be doing Retrieval on Thursday! I am nervous. I just don't want it to hurt.... Apparently I am sedated or asleep ( depends on which doctor or nurse you ask). So, Hopefully that means pain free retrieval. Then he said they will do the transfer on Saturday. This best work because I am not doing it again. I am tired! I am tired of disappointment. I am tired of stabbing myself 3-4 times a day. I am tired of having blood draws. I am tired of U/S. I am tired of getting up early. Plus there are several other things I am tired of. Of course, it will/ would be much worth it if I would ever get some results!!
