No, no, I'm NOT pg. But you may remember, I got sort of tired of hearing our RE say things like 'What will the High Risk think of me' or 'They'll think I'm terrible', etc, etc about putting just 2 embryos back.
Well, I saw the HR yesterday. What a Sweetheart!! A grandfatherly sort probably IS a grandfather. Well, he first went down the list of all the really horrible things that can happen to older pg women: diabetes, hypertension, premature labor, preeclampsia, heart issues, etc. When I didnt blink, he eased up. My BP was 135/82, and the nurse said Excellent! He did say hed advise only 1 embryo for each cycle (Huh??!!) b/c hes a bit leery of multiples b/c of my fibroids. He said there is a possibility if you put back 2 embryos and one splits, then you have triplets, and my uterus could rupture. Though I dont think thats very likely & he didnt even know that the fibroid surgeries I had were vaginal he thought they cut the uterus. I asked REs office for the size & location, and maybe we can ease his mind a bit. I dont know what Ill tell the RE. The fact is we dont have TIME to do a bunch of cycles!! I think Im going to still try for 2 if we get 2 good ones like last time. He did suggest that I ask the REn to test me for HLA antibodies (i.e. Im allergic to Phils sperm), due to my serious allergies. He also said hed use heparin with me, but I cant remember why the MTHR factor or something else? Id have to get that straight so the RE uses the same protocol. He told me I should get pg & come back hell definitely take me on as a patient! Said I looked like I was in good shape
Well, yeah you shouldve SEEN the preggos in there hugely fat!!! Except for 1. It was weird the office full of preggos and their DHs actually gave me hope. However, Im not naïve enough to think if the RE puts 2 embryos back, Ill have triplets for crying out loud!!
His office said they don't do December cycles due to the holiday & wants to do a mid-January one. DH won't be home then, so I've asked about a late-November cycle. Haven't talked to DH since Tuesday, so will have to be sure he's really on board.

- Use frozen, but be sure that you use ICSI. I have always put back a minimum of three. - Kacee on Sep 27, 2008, 6:04 PM
