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 Ė 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 didnít blink, he eased up. My BP was 135/82, and the nurse said ĎExcellent!í He did say heíd advise only 1 embryo for each cycle (Huh??!!) b/c heís 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 donít think thatís very likely & he didnít even know that the fibroid surgeries I had were vaginal Ė he thought they cut the uterus. I asked REís office for the size & location, and maybe we can ease his mind a bit. I donít know what Iíll tell the RE. The fact is we donít have TIME to do a bunch of cycles!! I think Iím 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. Iím allergic to Philís sperm), due to my serious allergies. He also said heíd use heparin with me, but I canít remember why Ė the MTHR factor or something else? Iíd have to get that straight so the RE uses the same protocol. He told me I should get pg & come back Ė heíll definitely take me on as a patient! Said I looked like I was in good shapeÖ Well, yeah Ė you shouldíve SEEN the preggos in there Ė hugely fat!!! Except for 1. It was weird Ė the office full of preggos and their DHs actually gave me hope. However, Iím not naÔve enough to think if the RE puts 2 embryos back, Iíll 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.
