Ultrasound... the count is in!

Just returned form our (baby count)u/s. I am very happy to report that ONE baby is growing in there!! His heart beat was at 114. It was amazing. Although G was not able to make the appt bc of work, Kiwi and my parents were all able to be in the room and see and hear our newest addition!! :) We are currently 6w3d along, and are due 12/19/11.

I go back in 2 weeks for another u/s. Feels weird to do that bc last time I "graduated" to my OBGYN after my first u/s. (I think it was bc we lived nearly 3 hours away from the RE.)

Yesterday G and I celebrated 4 years of wedded bless. Tonight we are going to Medieval Times, and my parents took Kiwi for the entire night. (Too bad I have to wait until 8 weeks along before we can DTD. LOL.)

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone! We will be spending the day with my family. Then, Kiwi and I are heading to Vegas to visit the G'ma and Great G'ma until Weds. Thursday is my 4 year wedding anniversary with G. Friday is our u/s and then Saturday we have a bday party for one of Kiwi's little friends followed later that evening my a Tastefully Simple party hosted by one of my longest friends (she gets offended when I say oldest. LOL. We've know each other since jr. high. She is also an ivf Mommy.) So, as you can tell, a busy week ahead. Today, was the start of our craziness though. Woke everyone up early for a local egg hunt, followed by a trip to San Diego wild animal park with some of G's family friends, Easter egg dying once we made it home (after dinner.) I'm way exhausted!! I over did it today!! I need to rest and relax.

Hope everyone has a great Easter and a wonderful beginning of the week. I probably won't update here until after our u/s on Friday.

To pee, or not to pee?

The first two cycles (ivf then fet) for Kiwi, I never did POAS. I was too scared of getting a BFN!!! This time, I told myself that I was going to do it. I wanted the memory to keep. (Wither the actual stick, or a pic of it.)

However, as Weds. beta rapidly approaches, I am questioning if I am going to do it. I am all nerves. Butterflies in the tummy and all. I'm way too scared for a BFN. G is scared too. He said that he thinks we shouldn't POAS. (He is that scared about it.)

I have one part of me wanting to do it bc G will not be with me when I get the call on Weds after the beta. I will be spending the day with my parents, while G works, and probably won't be heading home until late evening. Which I think would be best anyway. I don't want to be driving when the news comes in, nor do I want to be sitting at home alone either. (Especially if the news is bad.)

Way too nervous!!!!! I haven't felt any symptoms. Which has me freaking out. I guess I do have a very heightened sense of smell lately, but honestly, I had that after the ER and prior to ET. I've been really bitchy lately. That has me worried that AF might be coming. Then again, I remember that G and I had a huge blow out fight on beta day last time, with Kiwi. So, maybe bitchy is good. LOL.

I want Weds. to get here sooner, but then I don't......bc I am scared that I'll hear the awful words again, BFN.

Oh BOY!!! ET post

So, I am alive!! It is awful to lay in bed for 3 days when you aren't sick or even tired. I was looking forward to the break, but after a few hours, I just started getting stiff (neck and back.) Today I am finally up, out of bed!! YAY!

Monday, 4/4, was our ET. We got there and had the gender meeting with our RE. To our surprise, they were able to get 7 good embryos! ALL 7 were boys!!!!! Seriously! Crazy huh? We had 3 ab-normal embryos. 1 had Turner's Syndrome, another had no sex at all and the third had XXX, an extra female marker. Weird.

They transferred 2 in, and now I sit here PUPO!! My beta is set for Weds., the 13th. I can't wait!!

Today is ET day!!!!!

I am too excited to sleep!!! Today is the day we'll get prego with our boy!!!

RE never did call yesterday with a gender update. Guess we'll be surprised when we get there. :) Please pray, wish, hope, everything...that all goes well an dthat this works for us. Thank you.

cell stage report

So, all is set for a 10 am ET on Monday!!! YAY!! I talked to my doc about my concern over my ever growing tummy (bloat and pain.) He said it may be constipation, so to take Metamucil. He'll check it out on Monday when he sees me. I seriously look over 5 months pregnant and feel awful and sore.

So, got the break down of where are embryos are regarding cell stage. We have 12 embryos growing strong. 1 @ stage 9, 5 @ stage 8, 1 @ 7, 2 @ 6 and 3 @ stage 4. I don't know what that all means exactly, but I am thinking that it is good!!
