I had my progesterone blood test today. It was above 41!!! The nurse said that was excellent!!!! They changed my preg. test to the 20th (next Friday). Just a few more days now and hopefully we will have some great news!
We did our 2nd IUI on Sunday, Feb. 8, 2009. I only had 1 follie (potential baby) this time. That ok; 1 is all it takes though. I had my SIS test done last week. I have a fibroid; but they are going to leave it alone for now. It is well above the endometrium, so it shouldn't affect anything. The dr. informed me Sunday that I have a tilted uterus. I guess something always has to be added to all this, huh. Well - I am taking progesterone again; praying we get a healthy baby out of this. Praying so hard this IUI is successful. I have my beta test on Feb. 23 to see if it worked. I added a picture of the potential baby. It is so neat how it shows in an ultrasound. Just looks like a golfball - lol.
All my praying friends; say an extra prayer for us that this will be the end of the journey and we will get a healthy baby.
Warning you ahead of time; this is one of my "soapbox" rants.
It is just so unfair. Why in the world can a single mother of 6 kids ( a woman who has never been married) have IVF and end up with 8 babies????
When this story first came out I didn't think much about it. I thought - ok - she has been dealing with infertility treatments several years and this was the result of a fluke IUI where she produced more eggs than they expected. OH NO - THAT IS NOT HOW IT HAPPENED. This crazy woman had 6 kids ( all by IVF); never been married; still is not married; lives with her parents and filed for bankruptcy about a year and a half ago. Then she goes for another IVF - the dr. transfers all 8 embryos and all 8 take - resulting in octuplets. WHY is it this happened? How can someone be so stupid and WHY THE HECK did the dr. transfer 8 embryos. This whole thing is just STUPID.
So - what will happen now. Our tax dollars will pay for this kids because she does not have a job.
