Good morning everyone!
It's great to chat with you this morning ladies!
THANKS sweetie for crashing the thread!
It's so lovely to read you just before FET! How are you doing,are the boys treating you well? Are they still only waking up once a night? You're a real trooper, you know that, twin mama!
aaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww DH is such a sweetheart!!!! I'm really happy that he made you feel so warm and fuzzy inside after having such an emotional day with the crying and so on..
GOOD CALL, HUBBY-BUBBY! Sometimes we wish they wouldn't be such an annoyance, but most of the time, they make all the difference in the world... in a good way!
Is the rash a little bit better this morning by any chance? And booooooo for the clinic; they should be more available than that!!!! Sheeeeesh!
It's great to hear from you, how are you doing these days?such a touching story about your boss, I'm so glad that you could have a great response from her! I remember when I started my first IVF, I told my boss of the time... to realize that he was also going through his first IVF with his wife!!!! Juuuust a month ahead of me! He and his wife were very supportive, it was great.
you're doing such a great job with the list hunny, but I feel like it doesn't allow you to say much about yourself. How are you doing? Have any exciting plans for the weekend?
joining you tomorrow morning for the 2ww, sooooo excited to share that with you!
I agree with your comment completely. Anything planned for the weekend?
so sweetie, how did ER go? When will you hear about the fert rate? Ooooooh I can't wait, I hope everything goes well my sweet!
oh hunny, it's perfectly normal to be scared before your first ER. I sure was, you know! I was lucky because my boss' wife had hers a couple of months before and she told me all about the procedure. Honestly, the worst part is the anaesthesia. At my clinic, it's local, so they have to inject the anaesthetic into the vagina walls. It really pinches, like when you go to the dentist and have a cavity repair done. But seriously, it lasts about 1 minute, they do hurry. After that, you don't feel pain when they poke your ovaries. It,s like feeling a finger poke something inside. And the nurse is there with you on one side, and hubby on the other side, and everyone is very supportive. Afterwards, because your ovaries bleed a little bit from the intervention, you'll notice that your back and lower pelvic area might hurt. DO TAKE tylenol every 4 hours, it really helps, along with a warm water bottle and watching TV to keep your mind off it. Your peritoneum, the membrane that covers all the inside of your abdomen, is very sensitive, and blood irritates it. Hence why you feel pain for a few days after ER. Well, more like very annoying soreness. My yoga teacher told me she used a particular pose for the days after ER... just lie on your back with your calves and feet resting on a chair. Support your head so your chin is slightly tilted towards your sternum (not jammed down). Put your hands on the floor on each side of your hips, palms up, and pay attention to your breathing without forcing anything. If possible, breathe into your pelvic area. Keep the pose for as long as you like. She said it helped her bit time.
AFM, excited to have FET tomorrow, but also dreading the hubby-bubby quarantine. When Estrace is bumped to 3mg two times a day, it really makes a difference on how I feel. I really know what men go through right now, my senses are just so sharp... I look around in the train, subway, on the street, and I can tell you I spot the handsome and virile men around me. The slightest touch makes me shiver... to think that I'll have to pile up all that longing for 2-4 weeks at least without any relief. Boys, you have all my sympathy!!!!
Maybe I could take the month off and spend it in a convent?
BUT other than that, I feel great! My sister will arrive at the end of the afternoon and I'm super excited to see her. She's arriving before the rest of the family so she can babysit DS tomorrow morning during ET. It's also great because we'll spend quality time together, and she loves cooking and is very excited to help me decorate my two fondant cakes for tomorrow. We'll do the whole job tonight (the cakes are chilling in the fridge right now) and she'll get to see how I make buttercream and fondant. She draws very well, so if one day my catering business soars, I'll definitely use her help for the fancier designs such as airbrushing. Having a business with her would be amazing, but right now we're rather aiming at being a psychologist (me) and doing a bachelor,s degree in communication and political sciences (her)! We'll have a great weekend; my family will arrive tomorrow for lunch, we'll order pizza, and then if I feel ok about it we'll take the car and drive around to find a nice spot for my sister's apartment (she'll start in september). In the evening we'll celebrate DS's bday with his "drum" cake. On Sunday, we'll have breakfast and chill, then lunch at a restaurant downtown and spend time in the beaux-arts museum. My sister,s help will be gold, beacuse through all that I have to cook our meals for the rest of the week! eeeek!
Okay, hugs and kisses to y'all, and...
