Here is one more pic of Emma. This is the first time I have seen her. She loves her Aunt Casey.

Let's Get it Started!!!

Finally we are back in the game. AF showed up on Sunday so I went in on CD (cycle day) 3 which was on Tuesday for b/w and an u/s. Everything looked great. I have 16 follies on one side and 11 on the other. I took my first shot of the Follistim tonight. Piece of cake! I will go back next Tuesday for more b/w and u/s and see how the meds are working. Hopefully I will have 2 or 3 mature follies at that time and can go ahead with the trigger shot to make me O (Ovulate). I am super excited and I really am praying that we only have to complete one round of this.

I went to the Dr again yesterday for my post-op appointment. Everything went well. She wants to do some chromosomal testing on Jason and I to make sure everything is OK. I had it done after my last m/c but she wants to do it again anyway. We won't have the results of that for at least 2 weeks. Otherwise we are just waiting on AF (aunt flo) to show up and then I go back in for baseline blood work and then start the Follistim injections.

On another note....Emma is back in the hospital. They got to go home yesterday with instruction to come back this morning for another billirubin/jaundice test. It was elevated enough that they want to keep her for 48-72 hours. This is not uncommon in preemies (they are considering her that since she was 3 weeks early). Basically she gets to get a sun tan under the lights.

Emma Gail is Here!!!

So baby Emma made her grand entrance into the world yesterday. She arrived at 9:39 am (number sound familiar to anyone?)and weighed 6lb 7 oz and was 19 1/4 inches long. It was a hard day for me, don't get me wrong, I am so excited that she is here and that Chris is finally a daddy but it just made me miss even more what I don't have. It also really made me miss the first baby we lost. It is hard to think that I would have a 1 year old if that pg would have made it.
I have an appt with the RE on Wednesday and mom is going to meet me there and then we will probably go to Tuscaloosa to see them. I am excited that I am finally an aunt and the mom is finally a Mimi.

Still Waiting

We are doing good. Weird to say but I think we were prepared for another m/c. I am ready to get started again. I hope it does not take another 2 years to get pg again. I have an appt with the Dr. on May 21st. I assume that if I start before then that I can call and go ahead and start the shots as planned before I got pg. I am just so ready to move on.
