Good morning ladies!
Phew, I'm so tired today, and I went to bed right after 10pm!!!
Good news, I had an apt yesterday with my nutritionist and I have lost 10 pounds since we first met. Now of course we adjusted the portions so I could eat like a PUPO, no more weight loss, but I'm very happy. I thought the meds would put me at risk for weight gain, but so far so good.
Other than that, nothing much to report. Three orders from people who saw the website. DH seemed a bit... melancholic yesterday. He opened up and told me he finds our life a little boring at times because we don't do much except take care of DS and do chores. It's true that we no longer have free time, or very little and not at times we want it, but hey, it's only temporary. He definitely would be shocked if we have twins, but he would adapt just like I would. I wish I could find something to make him feel better about the whole no free time thing, but even if I offer him to take turns during the weekend, like "next 90 mins are yours, and tomorrow it's my turn" kind of thing... but even if we do that we still have a lot to do. Maybe today if I find the time I'll make a list of all the things we have to do around the house, and that way maybe we can do a big chore and get it done once and for all... Even if I'm PUPO I can still do small chores and help him.
LOL the "ice cream call"! Oooh the ever-sweet sweet voice! My dr told me once that during stimms your ovaries start the size of a golf ball and end up the size of an orange!
So no wonder you feel a little sore right now! Grow follies, grow!
Hey, Lumpy Bumpy!
Oh I,m so sorry that you're so sore... can't your dr prescribe vaginal inserts???? Yeah, I keep feeling the kicks, it's the weirdest thing! I can totally understand why they say you feel the quickening earlier after you've had a baby... I thought if you're super vigilant you'll feel them anyway, but looks like our body does detect it! Mmmmh meds may be messing with our heads, but progesterone messes with our regularity... hence the gas, LOL! Explosive cocktail! Thanks for your comments about the website, I found the girl pic on google images, I can't find it anymore. My sister is making other sketches for the website, I want a sketch just like that for the logo (I'll replace it so it's royalty-free, this is just temporary... but I'm in love with that sketch...)
oooooh you're getting there girl, you must be counting the days!
When I started IVF, I also wanted twins. I figured it would be easier since I would only go through the tmts once and our family would be complete. But after having one baby, I know what I'm in for, and having two babies at the same time would take a serious toll on us. Oh if it happens, you're still happy and you just do it and you don't spend too much time thinking about that (you don't have any time left anyway, lol) but still. Part of me wouldn't mind because I would gladly have more kids, part of me would mind because of the extra job, time, money... I'm not sure I'd be able to go back to work, and I'm not made to be a homemaker.
Oh you made me burst out laughing when I read your dr's comment! LOL!
Yeah, they sure know how to talk to the ladies. During my last ER, we collected 21 follies. I was a tad overstimulated and ended up with OHSS, but still, it was a big reaping. Well the doc was "closing up" and when the embryologist told us the final count he said, "Wow, you're a good hen!" To which I replied he should be careful about what he said, because my feet were dangling right next to his head. He apologized, he had been a little carried away by the high numbers, but I'll always remember being compared to a chicken, it was quite funny!
THAT BEING SAID I was SUPER excited for you girlie!!!! GO EMBIES!!! or BLASTIES! Did you freeze the other little guys? Ooooh now you're in the PUPO group too, I,m so happy! It's very good news!
yay for the dr,s go-ahead!
Okay ladies, time to write some reports, I saw patients yesterday for the first time since I came back to work. I' ve changed a lot in the last year... wow... I'm not the same psychologist I was before, my priorities have changed. I mean, before it was all about the diagnostic because I thought identifying the disease would tell me how to help the patients. Now I still diagnose, but I listen way more to all the rest with a different attitude, and I find it seems to help the patient more. Humility...
