Sorry to worry you…I was waiting for the doctor’s appointment today to post. It’s all good news!
Both Sparks have strong heartbeats and are measuring a couple days ahead of schedule. Whew! I’ve been waiting anxiously to see them again. Spark B was doing a back flip and I’m already wondering if he’s going to be the spitfire. They are looking like the cutest baby birds you’ve ever seen.
I am off all IVF medication! This is a big milestone which I’ve been so looking forward to. No more shooting myself up with hormones and maybe the bruises on my thighs will heal.
I am scheduled for a cerclage on July 15 to stitch my cervix shut. I talked it over extensively with the doctor today. It seems that because they don’t know for certain what caused my Sweet Pea to come early, they don’t really know if I really do need it or not or if it will really help or not. He said they are “comfortable” with me having it. There are risks though and although I will probably go ahead with it, I’m nervous about it.
I’m starting to be able to tell a few people and I’m really enjoying that. Dollface asked if I could go swimming even though I’m “prenant”. She kept asking if my “stomach was ok” as we splashed around in the pool. I asked her if she would be my babysitter and told her she’d be 9 when the babies came. She exclaimed, “How many years are you going to have them in there??” Some of the sweetest moments so far.
It might just be possible that I will enjoy some of this pregnancy yet.
