Today was the sixth day I injected Gonal F (450 units), Lupron (5 units), Menopur (150 units) and Lovenox. My tummy is a bit bloated/ swollen by appearance. I have a few small bruises that are barely visible. I am taking Prednisone and Femera as well.
I feel great, but I have noticed that I am craving milk.
Tomorrow I go in to my RE, Dr. Tomer Singer for my next monitoring appointment.
I kinda had a bit of a freak out today. I am so much of a planner. I am a control freak and this is so out of my control. I had in my head that I would transfer 3-4 embryos to ensure that I have twins. Normally it is with IUI, not IVF that there is a danger of having higher number of multiples. Low and behold, a lady on my IVF board made a post about triplet moms. She is having triplets and another lady stated that she transferred three embryos and ALL of them stuck. FREAK OUT CENTRAL !! What the What?????? Say it is not so ! So…. there went my perfect little plan ! I DO NOT want three babies. TWO !! That is enough for me LOL. Now I am petrified, as I do not believe that I could go through with selective reduction. Basically they insert a fluid into the heartbeat of an embryo to stop the heart… for me that is abortion, and I can not do that. It will also endanger the other babies and possibly me.
Wish me luck tomorrow !
Good luck! My clinic is super conservative, I’m only allowed to transfer one embryo. Not sure if that’s good or bad for me, we shall see!
Wishing you all the best ! I think since we are paying for this procedure, we should be able to transfer what we feel comfortable with. With older women, they normally advise higher number transfers…
