Hey girls! I've tried to catch up, so hopefully I don't miss anything!

Klik, 3 frozen? That's amazing! Hopefully you have indeed found the right protocol. As for lining, my issue was that it wasn't trilaminar, and the Viagra did indeed fix the quality every time. Maybe worth an ask?

Scooby, looks like apart from the progesterone issue, all is good? I'm like Klik, always err on the side of caution and do what the drs order. That being said, you know your own body and gotta do what's right for you! Hopefully it all levels out once the placenta fully takes over!

Wish, feels good when the dr says you can relax, eh? How far are you now? Will you find out genders? So happy you got to hear the two strong heartbeats!

Disney, so close now! When did DD arrive? Early? Late? What do you think about this one?

Aster, boopin, how are you?

AFM, We are still trying to get Brielle's reflux under control. Zantac seems to maker happier, once the dose gets readjusted for her weight. (Already 12.5lbs!). However the reflux is causing the awful choking episodes which happen 2-3 times a day. She's been able to work it out herself so far, but it only takes one time. Her dr told me to take an infant cpr class. Due to this, I'm sure I've developed post partum anxiety, which I'll be taking to my dr about next week. I won't drive anywhere alone with her, for fear of her choking and me not able to do anything about it. Thankfully DH was off for the first 6 weeks, then went back to work last week, and now has 3 more weeks off. Other than that, she's started smiling and being more interactive, which is pretty neat already a week away from 2 months!

Thanks, Boopin! Thanks for reminding me of the Viagra--excellent point! I can't wait to tackle this problem, but for now I have to put it aside and focus on getting more embryos... How's the donor-picking process going?

Disneyfan: wow, 37 weeks?! You are soooooo close... Keeping my fingers SUPER crossed for the easiest possible delivery!!!

Amanda, so nice to hear from you! I'll totally ask about Viagra when we get to transfer time, thanks! Re. Brielle, I'm glad the reflux medication helps, but I can completely understand your anxiety... Poor sweetheart--it must be horrible to see her choking like that multiple times every single day... I really, really hope the reflux stops before your DH has to go back to work! It occurs to me, her reflux echoes your own terrible nausea... Again, I hope it doesn't last much longer... Excellent that she's smiling and being interactive already! It's sooooo nice when you start getting that sort of feedback from your beloved baby!

hello ladies!

disney - eee!! done with work and ready for little Sarah to come into the world!! course, she can hold off for a little while longer How are you feeling?

klik - 3!!!! AMAZING!!! I'm SO happy for you and I can't wait to see if you can get another 3 in the next 2 cycles. 9 would be out of this world!!! I love how you're able to focus on one thing at a time right now too. Eases the stress a bit. You'll get all of the building blocks in place and be SO ready to conceive!! And if I learned anything about the quality rating of the embryos....FOR REAL...don't let that fret you! Since my little nuggets were both the lower quality ones (3BB) and the 2 "better" ones didn't take (4AB). Just b/c they are a certain grade at the time of freezing doesn't mean they can't morph into awesomeness the very next hour/day after thawing!

Amanda - so good to hear from you!! Poor little pumpkin AND mama - you guys are going through the wringer. I hope she can work out of the reflux soon and it's part of physical development. I'm assuming you have been told all of the tricks and have all of the stuffs to try to help her maintain a constant angled position and all of that?

boopin - going to read your journal next but how are things coming along for you? picked a donor yet?

scoob - I think I'm with the girls but I'm also with them b/c my DH would totally be on the docs side and tell me to suck it up! haha! But like klik, I totally get the rationale for skipping a couple of nights too. Either way, I hope your bloods came out fine and you're good to go! Please update!

afm - camping this weekend was SO fun and relaxing. Albeit a little wet b/c it rained a lot but that didn't bring us down. It stayed away when we needed it to - on a hike to some falls that were beautiful. So got some exercise in too. We were with our friends who are all family to each other and like extended family to us and we told them all on Sat that we are preg with twins and everyone about died! Course some had their suspicions b/c I haven't had alcohol at any event in the past 2 months and I'm always up for at least a glass of wine. I knew that was going to be the telling point!
scoob - I do have my NT scan tomorrow. I haven't even been asked about a Harmony or anything so I'll ask about that tomorrow. I was told, though, that since my egg is 24 yrs old, I don't need any extra testing or monitoring or anything. So the only extra monitoring I'll have is due to them being twins. Once-a-month scans until 28 weeks, then biweekly until 36 weeks and then weekly. Though the biweekly/weekly could change up in between there due to whatever extra stuff they want to watch, but we'll figure that all out later. And b/c they are di/di twins, that's the best case scenario so they really aren't all that worried all around.
I think that's it! I'll update tomorrow after my scan. It's first thing in the morning, thankfully.

Wish: thank you! So true about quality... It quickly becomes immaterial once you transfer!

Your weekend sounds absolutely lovely, and it's great that you got to tell some excellent friends! The hike sounds beautiful... Good luck on your NT scan! I hope/trust that all goes well! As for the Harmony (or equivalent) test, personally I would ask for it, even with embryos from 24-year-old eggs... Chromosomal abnormalities can happen at any age, they're just way more common in older women... So, personally, I'd want to confirm that the risk of anything like that is indeed very low... Sorry, unpleasant stuff to think about, but I'm the erring-on-the-side-of-caution type... Still, good luck tomorrow--I hope and trust you will only get good news!

AFM: oestrogen patch went on today, to prepare for another cycle... AF should be this weekend, give or take a few days (my follicular phase was really short this cycle, so not sure how that will affect the luteal phase). And then I start again. Weekend was good--mom and DP and I went to a botanical garden--she loved it! Then yesterday we went to see Turandot, which was an amazing production. Today, pilates and massage, though mom says next time she wants the pilates but not the massage! I swear, I have to drag her to do things that are just pure enjoyment!

NT scan went great today!! No Downs markers, no spina bifida markers, they are measuring on track still with very strong HBs (163, 172). I'll get the blood test results in a week or so. I did ask about the Harmony and she said we're actually going to skip that b/c with donor eggs, the genetics and such get complicated. So what we're doing will be fine. This is a VERY dependable OB office so I'm just going to trust them.

What?? NO massage?! I know some people are weirded out by having some stranger rub on you but...I get over that quickly! hahaha

oooooh, already starting another cycle! this is so exciting! I can't wait to see how you respond to this one!

klik- Wow, three 8-cell embryos is outstanding! Okay, so you think two more retrievals and then time to transfer? How many will you transfer at once? Do you have a certain order you're going to start in with your frosties? I can't believe you're already gearing up to start again! Same protocol? I'm glad you're having fun with your mom. I'll take her massage if she doesn't want it.

Amanda- I'm so sorry Brielle is still having reflux issues. The choking sounds awful and I'd be a nervous wreck too! Do they expect her to grow out of this or are they still actively looking for ways to help? It must be so frustrating for you... However, I'm glad to hear that she's thriving otherwise. 12.5 lbs, wow! Her smile must melt your heart.

wish- So glad you had fun camping! Your friends sounds like a great group. Also, hooray for a good NT scan! It sounds like you're on a similar schedule as me, as far as scans. I have appointments at 16 weeks, 19 weeks, 22 weeks and I think 26 weeks? And then it's every two weeks starting at 28 & every week at 36. They assured me several times they'll keep a close eye on me, but they weren't worried since things look good. It's going to be weird waiting 4 weeks now after all of these scans!

AFM, 3 more doses of progesterone and then I'm done. FINALLY!!! So I guess my RE wasn't worried about the drop, and my OBGYN was super unconcerned too. My last half-dose will be Saturday. If I have any spotting or anything I'll contact them ASAP. NT scan was great, Moobley is just amazing and so much fun to watch. No marker's for Down's and they said anatomy looks good for 12 weeks. Starting to breathe a little bit easier...

scoob - total samesies! HAHAHA! same scan weeks, same lack of concern, all anatomy looked really good (saw hands, arms, legs, feet, brains, stomachs, bladders, ribs...). I'm breathing easier now too. AND sleep a lot more - fatigue just hit me.

wish- Haha that's too funny! I'm glad our clinics are more chill about things because it's making me less nervous. I'm actually having the opposite thing right now and not sleeping well. Part of it is because I'm having some pain in my hips though, so I bit the bullet and ordered one of those U-shaped pregnancy pillows. Should be here by Friday. DH has already threatened to steal it.
