I will have to post the 20 week picture later. I keep on forgetting to upload it at night cause simpley I am too lazy and too busy with packing. Anyways, I went to the doctors on Tuesday and he said that my chances of having a baby with downsyndrome are 1 in 9000 and the chances of a baby with trisomy 18 are 1 in 5000, so we are pretty happy about that. Unfortunately, they had not received the results from my ultrasound the other day. (that's a shocker, cause KGH is always so efficient) So I will get the results from that when I go back on the 14th (that's my moving day). The doctor asked if we found out the sex and we told him the whole story about the wand witch and how unprofessional she was. He agreed and has kindly refered us to Kingston Imaging for another ultrasound for gender determination. So we will be going on the 1st instead of the 4th and we only have to pay $40 rather than $175. I love my doctor! He also prescribed renitidine cause the acid reflux is pretty unbearable these days and it is much cheaper than popping Gaviscon every 20 minutes.
I have scheduled a 3D/4D ultrasound in Toronto for the 4th of August. It wasn't cheap but it is still worth it. We will get a couple of more detailed pictures and a CD of all the different shots, 30 minutes of just watching what the baby does, we get to listen to the heartbeat during the ultrasound and of course the gender determination. Also for the small fee of $25 we can get a DVD of the whole session recorded to music, LOL! And lets not forget heartbeat bear, also available for the small fee of $25. These people must be making a fortune!
I have another Dr's appointment this Tuesday coming up and I will let you know how it goes, I will get the results of Tuesday's ultrasound as well as the results of having a healthy baby.
I bet you are all dying to know the sex? So am I!! First of all let me start off by saying that I got the f@#$ing wand witch again. If you have forgotten who she is, she is the one that came to work hung over and left me stranded with my butt up in the air and pants off! Well she hasn't got any better in the last 5 months. She would just not make the sex of the baby a priority all she wanted to do was try and get a good shot of the baby's heart. Don't get me wrong, I want to know that every thing is okay with it's heart but when you have a limited oportunity to see the goods when the baby moves you would think that you would try to get the view when you can. I'm still not sure if she got a good view of the heart but she never tried to go back and see the sex once it had moved a little. All she would say was if it's feet aren't in the way then the hands are. DON'T BE SO LAZY AND TRY!!!!!!! after that she said, "well if there are any complications you can ask us again then". What the hell???? Like if there are complications I am going to be concerned about the sex!!? Stupid moron!! I hate the wand witch and wanted to clock her on the head with her instrument! She kept on beating my stomach and not bothering to ask if it hurt, and yes it did, and judging by the reaction of the baby, it didn't appreciate it either! I have to go see my Dr. next Tuesday so we will see if he will send us back if he needs a better view of the heart, if not then I guess we will have to go to Ottawa find out.
Don't double layer and don't let Mike take your picture with the flash! Atleast you can see the shadow beside my pants that puts an extra inch or so on me up top. I think my stomach has finally caught up to my boobs though. Not long now and we will know the sex. I will post on Tuesday night with the news.
P.S. Pull up your droopy drawers and wet down your hair before you have another pic taken!
Okay, Well there is definately a bigger belly there now. I missed the 17 weeks pic cause we went shopping in the States last Sunday (yes we went to the States on Canada Day). I have been starting to feel the baby kick, it does not like it when I shake my legs cause it seems to kick whenever I do it for too long. Mike is apparantly growing a baby too and wanted me to post this photo of him I think it is a banana pudding baby cause he eats a four pack a day! Since he quit smoking his favorite saying is "if the tank is empty, you gotta fill er up!".
We sold our house and will be moving soon. Yes we are crazy but we can't help ourselves! I hope I don't have the baby before we move into our new house cause we are cutting it a little close.
Simply said, Infertility sucks! I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. That being said, it has taught me a lot about strength, compassion and patience. I am extremely fortunate to have conceived a perfect, beautiful daughter via my 1st IVF cycle. I am hoping that we will be just as fortunate this time around.
