HI There Everyone
Ive been very slack at posting over the last week or two, but I have been keeping up to date with you all.
I hope that everyone travelling to CPT/already there, has the very best of luck. Hopefully the weather is kinder to you all than it was for us in September.
Best of luck to you netty - you are on the same journey, even though on a slightly different (and more exotic) path. I am thinking of you all xxx
As for us.. Ive been meeting with my wonderful obs once a week, and he is reassuring us at every visit, with a very powerful heartbeat, which is music to our ears. Its almost surreal actually.
Not sure if I mentioned, but it appears that we just have the one bub on board. We did transfer 2 back in, but there was one empty sac when we went for our first appointment. - we are still over the moon that we have come this far.
So there will definitely be a return trip to CT within the next couple of years...
Our little poppy seed was doing the Macarena on Monday, and leaping about all over the place. Its very strange for so early, but its got better jerky movements than Michael Jackson - on screen anyway. With every passing week we are becoming more encouraged. We will be 10 weeks tomorrow.
Its still so very nerve wracking, but we are allowing ourselves the indulgence of a little excitement.. We have likened it to having a treat of a little freddo (as opposed to the whole bar of Dairy Milk)! My analogies are often food orientated, so for that I sincerely apologise.
Can I ask - I stopped the PIO injections around 2 weeks ago, and my bum still feels like I have had implants of ball bearings.. Is this normal? I thought the sensitivity would subside within a few days - but JAYSUS..
That aside, symptomatically, Im doing very well (I think..)
I have started with a little nausea, but I think I'm one of the fortunate ones - in that it only really comes and goes, and its generally in the evening when Im laid out on the sofa. For this Im eternally grateful.
Im completely buggered though - no energy to speak of, and my chest resembles Aida.. but on the whole im doing better than I expected..
So for those in Cape town, or at the airport - Say hello to the Penguins for me!
For those choosing donors - Best of luck..
For all newbies, just starting their research - welcome.. don't be afraid, and ask, ask away.
