9w5d - Introducing Baby A and Baby B

First, I want to apologize in advance for being the world's worst blogger :/ Some of you have been reaching out via email and comments wondering where I've been. I'm so sorry I haven't kept you in the loop but I've been living in a place called "Nauseousville"...lol! I really can't complain too much because it hasn't been too aweful. However, 2 nights ago the nausea stepped it up a notch to include some puking. I know, not attractive.

I'm now 9 w5days pregnant and some times I still can't believe it. It feels like I'm living someone elses dream. But then I feel sick and realize...nope, it's mine all mine. :) I'm happy. I can honestly say that I'm truly happy. I haven't been able to say that in quite a long time. Is everything perfect? No. But for the first time all the other imperfections don't seem to matter as much. I'm holding perfection in my heart and it feels incredible.
I digress, so at 9w5d I'm feeling exhausted. All the time. Nausea is a constant visitor. One minute I'm dying for a cheese burger, the next I want to hurl at the look and smell of it. Despite this crazy relationship with food, I have managed to gain 3lbs which is great. I'm under strict doctors orders to gain more weight for the twins.

Last Thursday the pregnancy became more real. We were officially released by our wonderful RE. We met our new OB and couldn't ask for a better experience. Dr. G was very patient and down to earth. His speciality is high risk so we are in the right place. The first part of the visit consisted of a thorough and state of the art u/s (3D). It was a nice change from the ancient equipment they used at the RE's office. The u/s lasted about 30 minutes and we got see the babies move around and wiggle - it was wild. At one point it looked like Baby A was waving at us and my fiance got very emotional. Baby B was too busy posing for u/s pics - what a ham. The chicklets are the exact size they should be at 9w and the hb's are at 179 and 176. The tech and the babies made the u/s fun and exciting. BEST SO FAR.

Here's a pic of our twins. Sorry it's so blurry....we don't have a scanner. BTW, I think Baby B has balls.....I'm so inappropriate :/

  2. Isn't modern medicine amazing? Who would have ever thought that women who Hodgkins disease could have babies? Its just mind boggling that this is now possible. We're lucky and so blessed that this is available to us. Looking forward to seeing more of your special cargo.

  5. Wow! You are my inspiration. I am 8 days past my transfer and did an HPT that was also positive. I am reading that because I didn't have an HcG injection, my positive is a true positive. My blood test is not until the 25th and I have absolutely no patience. :) Anyway, congrats on the twins - good luck for the boy/girl combo! :)

  16. After 2 failed IVF cycles we were recommended to look into egg donor options. Having been told it could take up to 18 months to find a suitable donor in the UK, we were advised to look abroad where the process would be quicker. After lots of research and conversations with various clinics, we chose Ukrainian BioTexCom. We were impressed with the information available on their website, the latest technologies on offer and the communication from our manager who was excellent throughout. Her response was professional, helpful and prompt.
    Our doctor made a plan to suit our needs involving a simultaneous donor egg and own egg cycle and we were contacted well in advance so had plenty of time to organize travel. The clinic took care of all our medication before, during and after our treatment which was a worry off our mind.
    We travelled to Kiev in August 2013 and found the city to be a great place to stay and explore. Having never been to Ukraine before, we were not disappointed with all it had to offer.
    On arrival at the BioTexCom we were impressed with the facilities and the warm welcome from all the staff, who spoke excellent English. Our experience could not have been made any easier from start to finish. Although this is a stressful and emotional time, the reassurance and care we were given allowed us to be more relaxed.
    The nurses, embryologist and doctors explained all the procedures, gave us time to ask any questions and made sure we were completely happy before treatment commenced. We would not hesitate to recommend this clinic to all that require fertility treatment in the future.
