22 March 2014 Appointment

I took Mimster to the appointment with me today! I thought that it would be a great way for her to bond with her twin siblings! She is always kissing my belly so… Why not! She was very excited to see them on the screen and could recognize their body parts! Very cute! They told me that the baby on the LEFT is a BOY! This is the baby that is always moving around! The babies keep switching from A to B and B to A… So it is getting harder to keep track! The other baby didn't want to be bothered and even turned it's back to us! Their HBs were strong and steady! The baby boy's HB is 146 and Shy baby is 158!  All in all… A great scan! Maybe we will see the sex next time!

When I saw the doctor, we discussed my weight loss… My Blood Pressure and I told him I think that I might have a UTI! I drink so much water but it is like it is NEVER enough! I was given meds and sent urine to the lab… I will hear the results in a day or two.

My doctor told me that I will be getting a Cervical Cerclage… WHOA, What!? And that I would be staying in the hospital for 3 days! I am REALLY not looking forward to that! It is now more than EVER… time that I start looking for some part time help around the house. NO MORE LIVE INs though!

I will be sure to blog about the experience! I always hate going under!

Our Egg Transfer 29 October 2013

 Anxiety hit me around 2 AM. I got up to tinkle and couldn't go to sleep afterwards. So many thoughts were twirling in my head! Gustavo was sleeping soundly beside me and since I knew he was going to work after I got the eggs transferred and settled back home, I didn't wake him.
 My eyes were wide open... I was thinking about the possibility of really having twins... Or even one baby... I had ruled out the possibility of ever having more kids, but... I want more now:)
 DJ and Mimi are growing up very fast! Though I think I might shelter them a bit too much... They are excited to have more brothers/sisters.

 Okay- On to the story. We got to check in around 0845. We signed some papers and paid for the embryo freezing (A whopping 350 KD!!!)  We went to our room and then returned back to the clinic around 0900. They took 3 of us in to the L shaped room. I was happy because one girl was from my last group and then The American was there too! YAY! Someone to talk to while I am waiting!
 We had to put on our gown like before and then... After about 20-30 minutes, I was told to tinkle and then I went into the room. It was dark and I laid down. I saw the Embryologist... He confirmed my name and then left the room. My room was in-between another room and the Lab door! The doctor came in and got everything prepared. It didn't hurt much. It was like a pap smear. He talked to me about the embryos. He said that 11 of the 18 were great blastocysts. So we inserted two and froze 9. He told the nurse, "Load" she then told the lab... After about 2 minutes, the Embryologist came in with a small and long tube. 

The doctor said he was done. I asked him, "How do you know they are both in there?" He said, "I am going to check now" When he returned, he confirmed they were both inside. The nurse then tilted my bed. Head down, legs up and told me to keep my legs bent.
(Breakdown: 27 eggs retrieved, 21 were mature, 18 fertilized... 11 kept growing...)
Now- I want you to understand that it is normal for your numbers to decrease significantly. So, do not worry if this happens to you.
 It was strange because they left the door open so I could hear what was going on in the room beside me! Poor girl, She had to do the procedure 3 times because her embryos were not going out of the tube!
 After about 30 minutes I was moved to a holding area. I remember I looked at the clock and it was 1215. A Kuwaiti lady was there (The same from the L shaped room) so we started talking. She was really so sweet! I was told that I had to stay in the hospital... 3 days! I said, "No Way!" So, I only had to stay until about 7 PM:) I saw the American and the sweet Kuwaiti before I left the hospital! How nice will it be to be pregnant with other people!
 How am I feeling:
Well- I feel ok. I have a little bit of cramping. 
Let the torture of the wait begin!
