I lied - no scan today. I was mistaken. Next scan is 9/1. But heard the heartbeats and they are great! one was moving around SO much, it's nickname is now 'Swoosh' b/c of all the swooshing on the doppler!!

Aw, Wish, bummer that you couldn't see them, but I'm very glad you got to be reassured by hearing their little heartbeats!

I love "Swoosh" as a nickname! I wonder if you'll have one super-chill baby and one super-active one!

Some 3 weeks til the next scan--I guess you get to see gender then, too?

Glad things are going so well for you! I hope your last week+ of work is not too busy. Excellent that you'll have a mini-break soon!

AFM, all 4 of my eggs fertilized! With this clinic, every single egg they've ever ICSI'd for me has fertilized. At Cornell, I lost about 2/3 of eggs. I really do wonder about that... I really think the lab here is just better. So... I'm glad I'm here, with a protocol that seems to really suit me!

klik - 100% fertilization... that's wonderful news!! I think you're right about this clinic's laboratory. I'm so happy that you/doctor finally found the right protocol for your follies. Are you doing 1 more round of egg banking?? xx

Wish - I LOVE "Swoosh" for a nickname!! Is it baby A or B that's wiggling around like an all star?? Ahhh... JUST DO IT!!

HELLO Ladies

OMG klik!!! that's INSANE!!! I'm SOOOOOOOOO happy for you!!! wow, you have 7 tries so far!!! let's bank a few more next time (right??)!!! How are you feeling? you must be elated!
I agree - so weird that a world-renowned lab isn't keeping up with your home lab!

ah yeah, bummer we didn't get a scan. I felt worse b/c I told DH that we DID have one again and this is the 2nd appt he's come to and the 2nd one where it's only been a doppler and we thought it was a scan. But I think he'll come to the next one too.
Yeah, so far I think we have one crazy and one lazy (alternate nicknames??) haha! I like 'chill' better though. I think Swoosh was the one moving around last time too - so I think Twin B. Twin A was kicked back with its little arm up over its forehead last time, 'chillin in the hammock' style! Swoosh was also the one with the lower HB so maybe its a crazy boy!

Thanks, Boopin! I'm really still in disbelief... I'd like to bank one more set of embryos and then start transferring... so maybe we'll be transferring at a similar time!

Wish: thanks! Yeah, I have 7 tries here plus 3 at Cornell (not counting my 10 frozen eggs here which were always meant for number 2)... I think I need a couple more to stand a good chance at my age... Aw, shame your DH also came all psyched to see the babies but left with only the heartbeats... I'm glad he can make the next one! Crazy and lazy, lol! Ah, do boys have lower heartbeats? The things you learn!

So, all 4 embryos survived: 1 top-quality 8-cell, 1 high-quality 8-cell, and two compacting pre-morulas. I freaked out that they were growing too fast but the embryologist said you do expect them to start compacting at some point on day 3, so not to worry. But, you know, I worry. Still, they all survived and certainly none seem to have struggled to get to day 3... I'm so grateful to my body, and to my clinic here for running this protocol... I really hope we can get a baby or two out of all this... DP is starting to fantasize about 3+ -- help!

Oh, sorry, I also slandered Cornell: they fertilized 2/3 of my eggs, rather than lost them!

hahaha that's so funny that DH is now feeling so good about things that he's daydreaming about a whole lot of kids!! I love it! I'm really just so happy for you. Wow, those are some great sounding embies!!

and oh yeah, that's an old wives tale for gender prediction - I looked it up the other day. Anything until 140 is a boy, over is a girl. So we had 139 (of course, so could go either way) and 156. It's so weird how they've dropped since we got the first counts - though I guess not a ton. I just looked up my notes - they started out as 164 (A) and 157 (B). I think A has stayed right around there but clearly B dropped by almost 20. The doc said 139 was still completely fine and normal.

when will you find out if you will continue on with another back to back, klik? I hope you get to and your timing works out with Boopin!!!

wish- Congrats on the new job!!! I'm so happy for you, your old job was WAY too demanding of your time. Beautiful bump pic, although mine is so much bigger I'm starting to wonder what the hell is going on in there lol. It's like I got pregnant and my body went "OMG THERE'S FINALLY A BABY WE HAVE TO GET READY NOW!!!" I love the nickname Swoosh! Moobley was very swooshy at our appointment too. I'm worried he won't cooperate at the anatomy scan lol.

klik- Congrats on another 4 banked embies and 100% fertilization!!! This clinic really seems like a great fit. I have such a great feeling for you and for some reason I'm picturing your pregnant around the holidays. I so hope this is true! So now that you're done with this cycle will you be heading to France? I hope you can, I think it will be wonderful to give yourself a little rest.

boopin- Hey girl! Must check your journal for an update...

AFM, my appointment was quick and easy on Friday (minus the 45 minute wait time... this practice WAY overbooks!!!) Still, I love all of the doctors I've met there so far and they seem to know their stuff. I got to hear Moobley's heartbeat again and it was so nice to get confirmation that all is still okay in there. Anatomy scan is booked for 8/31. Can't wait!!!

How is everyone doing?
