I was stalking the "Summer 2011" board to follow some people I've cycled with before (in fall and winter 2010-2011). I was expecting twin boys in Oct/Nov -- but my beautiful sons were born too soon at exactly 24 weeks in July. Sadly, they did not make it out of the NICU. Micha lived for 5 days and Asaf lived for 9 days.
I had a C-section, so some doctors are recommending waiting a long time to get pregnant again (a year or 6 months). My OB said we could try again as soon as 3-4 months post-C-section. We meet with the RE on Sept 6 to discuss our options. We have one frozen embryo - I would prefer to do a new fresh cycle, but our insurance usually only covers FETs if there are frozen embryos ---- so we'll see which we are doing.
Also - I've now had 2 extremely preterm deliveries (boy/girl twins at 22 weeks in Dec '09 and now my sons at 24 weeks). I'm investigating what could be causing these preterm deliveries and how to prevent them. My current OB (who I'm not too happy with) says that we should do nothing, 'wait & see' and I should be able to carry a singleton to term safely..... I'm looking for a second opinion. Several women and expert doctors have suggested maybe cervical incompetence is causing my early deliveries. I'm researching different types of cerclages (stitch in the cervix to prevent preterm dilation) ---- I have an appt with another expert next week to see what he has to say.
So it appears that I will be doing some type of cycle (fresh or FET) or some type of treatment in Fall 2011. I was expecting to be a brand new mommy to twin boys in fall 2011 -- but that has fallen through....
These boards are such a place of support and love. Sometimes I feel that some of my cycle buddies from here are the only people in the world who understand what we are going through.
hugs and babydust to everyone!
