Hi everyone -
Sorry that I didnt repost last night, I grabbed some dinner and ended up knocked out on the couch. I dont really have any pg symptoms except by the afternoon, I feel wiped out! I mean I'm thinking of going to bed by 8:00 some nights, and I'm ususally a night owl. My DH is working double shifts until Sat, so now that we're having another storm (UGH they're saying 1-2 FEET of snow!) I keep running outside to shovel the steps, but the RE told me yesterday - NO lifting, straining or snow shoveling! I have to be able to get the dogs out, so this is looking like a really fun day!
I told the RE that I was getting crampy towards late afternoon and he told me thats a warning sign from your body that you need to take it easy. Jeez - I'm glad I didnt tell him that I had to shovel out the driveway yesterday to get to his appt! So he also told me I'll stay on the PIO inj until 12 weeks - OH JOY!!
he took me off of the progesterone in ethyl oleate and said it contains alcohol, so has switched me to PIO in sesame oil, he told me that its more unpleasant! Boy he wasnt kidding! I couldnt even draw the med up in a 25 gauge - I had to draw & inject with a 22 gauge. That stuff is thick!! The real problem is trying to find a spot on my hips that isnt covered in lumps though, now matter how long I massage or sit on the heating pad I'm still stuck with these lumps of unhappy muscle. How long did you all stay on meds afterwards? I have 1 crinone AM, PIO PM, and estrogen x2 day, plus baby aspirin, prenatal vit. Does staying on til 12 weeks seem excessive?
I cant wait until next Tues to (crossing fingers) see the HB! I still almost burst into tears every time I see my RE, so if all goes right next week he'll release me
guaranteed tears when that happens!
OH no! poor Joya!!!
oh, its just awful when they get hurt isnt it? It makes you feel so helpless! Thankfully it was on a pad that she doesnt need to walk on! I couldnt imagine having to watch the poor girl limp on a stitched pad! Guess she's getting lots of extra cuddles today, huh? I wouldnt worry about your BP, its a bit low, but nowhere near the need for concern. Ack! your m/s is back ?! Well, as debilitating as it must be, at least it lets you know that all is well in there.Thanks for the link for that band! I love it! I'm going to need a crash course in all things pregnant and babies - I feel SO clueless! I know which books I want, but kinda feel like ordering them before seeing the HB might jinx something - Yes, I've lost my mind, I know! much love- xoxo
Now we're waiting on pins and needles for your u/s on Friday! I bet you cant wait either! I've had no m/s either but Hazel
said it kicks in for her at 6 weeks - so maybe we should get ready for it? You are the PMA Queen! we are lucky to have you with us! Crossed for Friday!
I cant believe how different countries have such different schedules - making you wait forever! its not right to test your patience like that. i know they had Hazel
wait forever also! You girls are the Patience Queens! At least you have the comfort of all those betas! It must help a bit - i'll stay crossed for your next one!
How are you felling? Are you still starving all the time? Or has the m/s kicked in to drive you mad? twins!!!! I have to admit that I was hoping for 2 also, when I saw 2 dots on the screen I was thrilled, then I realized that the RE was right - it WAS just the glare from the light - bet he gets that alot!
OMG!! I'm so happy to hear from you!!!
How are you Mama? I can imagine how easy they are telling you to take it! Thank God you're not on strict bed rest. 17 weeks already?!! How is little Sam? It must be so hard to not strain yourself when you pick her up. Careful, careful! Yes, it was a real roller coaster for me - in the same morning "You have no eggs" to "but go calm down so we can talk" then an hour later to have a gift like that offered was TOO MUCH to take in so quickly. I did see how happy my RE was yesterday though, Super Efficient nurse hugged me three times! it was definitely a crying visit
The funny part is - I'm SO NOT the crying type! But I'll never get my RE to believe that since I cant even look at this most generous human being without completely choking up! Are you still able to work? I hope that you're not on your feet too much! I hope that you pop in every now and again - I know its hard for you - but I missed you so much!!! much love! xoxoxo
