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!

Naruto

Below you will see how we ended up with a CAT! Now, If you are a parent, you already know that kids NEVER forget when you make a promise or a deal with them.
Daddy made a deal with Domiyana... "If you start reading, you can get a KITTEN"

 STEP 1: Tell Daddy you have to tell him something... 
 STEP 2: "Don't say anything"
 STEP 3: Remind Daddy about the deal
 (NOTE: Dad's expression)
 STEP 4: She already knows she won! See their faces?

RESULT: Domiyana: 1 DAD: 0
 Meet Naruto!
DJ had a moment at the Friday Market. He started crying seeing how the animals were treated. It is a sad sight to see starving dogs. I told him that at least we saved ONE animal. I love that he has such a Golden Heart!
 Welcome
 Dj playing with the kitten!
 Welcome Home
 Isn't he cute?
 COMPLETELY Spoiled! The cat thinks he is a BIRD!

 Always sleeping!
Knocked out! 
This cat is SERIOUSLY spoiled! I really never thought too much about having a cat... But actually... It isn't too bad! They are easily potty trained! We have not had ANY accidents.
He wants to be held all the time and Mims treats it like a BABY! It is fitting in PERFECTLY.
THe cat got the name NARUTO because on the stripes on his face!

Simple to SEXY!

I saw this and thought WOW! What an idea!!! So I am sharing it! I would wear a tank under mine! I am going to try this out and see how it works for me! I do have a lot of TEE Shirts... And I can't wear them to work... SO- Why not!?
In this tutorial we will show you how to add some glam to an ordinary t-shirt. Of course this technique could be applied to any other shirt you find suitable.
Start with a shirt, scissors, a ruler and a marker .
b9724d16375dba5f92c85ddd4193e918
1.Cut the neckline of the shirt(if it is low neck, you can cut only the back side)
2.Fold the shirt in half, but be sure to fold only the back part. Use a marker and a ruler to draw a triangle which will actually be weaved area.
3.Then start cutting the strips – each should be with the size of a thumb – no need to be perfect, so don`t worry. But don`t forget to follow the triangle in order to achieve the desired result.
4,5,6 -When you are done pull each string aside to make them tiny and rolled up
7,8,9 Start weaving with the second string – flip it under the first string then put your fingers into the hole and pick up the third string, then put the fingers inside the new hole and grab the next string. Continue doing so until you reach the end. Pull the strings side  from time to time to avoid having your fingers stuck into the hole.   It might sound difficult if explained like this, but actually it is pretty easy.
10. When you reach the end, cut the string in half and tie it very well and you are ready

What do you think? Pretty huh?

****UPDATE****
So I actually attempted this when I got home... Mims and Me!
Scissors, Ruler and marker... CHECK!
I didn't make the triangle far enough down... And when you are weaving the strings it seems a bit tricky... My shirt came out okay...  Practice makes PERFECT!
