Up to 5lbs lost so far. This is a pretty sucky 'diet'. I'm assuming everything is OK with the baby, I have no reason to think otherwise. I have an u/s appt on Friday morning. This would be #4 in case anyone is keeping track, and this is from my 'regular' OB, too! She has been really nice so far. We need to talk about testing on Friday. I don't know if we should do an ultra-scan, NT scan, CVS or anything like that. While we do know the embryos were genetically perfect going into this, something could have happened in the whole cellular division process... just not sure on how to proceed with that.
In other surprising news, I recently went to Babies R Us (had to buy a shower gift) and Destination Maternity (looking for a bella band) stores and did NOT immediately burst into flames. It seems awfully strange to think that people might think I'm one of those 'fertile' people. While yes, I am pregnant (still amazing to write), the road to get here was LONG and HARD and is not something I am going to forget anytime soon. It's as much a part of this baby's Story as anything else. Here's the lab you were created in, here's the lovely doctor that got mommy pregnant w/ you. Here you are when you were just thawed, and look, just hatching, too! Awww... that sort of thing.
As for the upcoming Holidays... I think back to last year and the limbo between our 2 spectactularly failed IVFs and our search for answers which lead us out to Denver and CCRM. It SUCKED.
Here's to hoping this is the last year the dogs are featured on our Christmas cards...
