This will be my last post before we leave for India tomorrow. I'm excited about the trip and nervous about getting our CCS results. We will most likely get them midway through our trip, and I'm really hoping we don't get news that ruins the rest of the vacation for us. Ugh, not going to think about it!
Not much news to report here. We got the karyotype results back from my husband and they were normal, which is good. I have left our email addresses with C.CRM in case they can't get through to us via cell phone - I hope there's enough WiFi around so we can check our mail. I know I'm going to be compulsively checking it every day!
I have been thinking lately about what I would do in the event we don't have any normal embryos. My gut is telling me that I would want to try one last time with my eggs. I'm kind of surprised at myself - I thought I would give up after 3, but now I feel like 4 is the right number. I am also thinking that I would ask Dr. S to increase my stim doses. I doubt he'd want to, because 450iu seems like the max dose for most people - but I've done 450iu every time I've cycled and just once I'd like to see if upping the dosage would make a difference. Just something I've been mulling over lately...
When I'm not thinking about our embryos, I've been busy doing a bunch of little house projects. We are going to wallpaper and paint our entry hall and back hallway. The paper we chose is really cool - I will post pics when it's done.
I also found a great vintage rocking chair and ottoman for our living room - it was 50% off, so I think we got a great deal. Below is a picture - apparently it's by a designer named Milo Baughman. How cool is that?
That's it for now. I will be back in the new year, and looking forward to catching up with all of you then. For anyone who is cycling over the holidays - best of luck! For everyone else, I hope your holidays are full of laughter and love (and babies, or babies to come!) See you all in 2012!
