two uteri, two mamas pregnant, AGAIN, with baby number two

happy to report the happiness (even though I got an asshole anonymous comment which I deleted) April 21, 2007

Happy. Happy about S’s belly pouching out a bit. Happy about her mild nausea. Releived to be feeling how I expected to be feeling. The anonymous bad speller who commented on my last post didn’t even enrage me. Bitches like that are the reason I am afraid to be honest about being a complicated person, but really, eff her. It isn’t even worth taking about cause it was mean and not constructive. Stop reading my blog if you can’t hang bi-atch…go read some rosy blog full of blinkies and positive affirmations. Anyhoo, back to the happiness.

We are not doing a beta, because we are afraid we’ll just obsess over numbers, and it doesn’t seem worth it. I scheduled an ultrasound for 6 weeks (which is in 2 weeks) per Dr. Poor Social Skills’ instructions. YAY.

Some progesterone questions. S HATES the hoo-has, so our doc is switching her to oral tablets, 2 X per day. Any reason not to do this? Her CD21 progesterone was 48, which seems insanely high to me (see? give me a number and I will obsess). Is that normal? From the hoo-has? It better not bean indication of quadruplets.

It feels incredible to do all the things we were holding back on. Baby name books. Pregnancy books. Onesies. And I’m not knocking on wood when I say miscarriage. We just.aren’t.going.there. Thusly, we are telling people, and proceeding as if that is not an going to happen. God help us if it does, we’ll need all the support we can muster.

Happy. Finally.

    the pills work just as fine as the hoo-ha bullets so make the switch

    I don’t mind the hoo-ha bullets any more, but the first cycle I took them, I hated them. Really, really hated them.

    I’ve read that the tablets have a few more potential side effects which is why doctors prefer the bullets (but I believe that’s from an Internet source so it’s not gospel). But I’m with Sophia. Make the switch.

    And remember, S. did Clomid with no trigger shot. She is not having quads. I promise.

    Glad you’re feeling happy. 🙂

    my doc told me the progesterone is better aborbed as a *ahem* hoo-ha pill. taking them orally, most of the progesterone is processed by the liver(i think). orally can also cause weird side-effects. i took them until i was 12 weeks pg via the hoo-ha method. i’d just be 100% sure that the decrease S is likely to get by taking them orally won’t affect your bean.

    taking them orally they are definately not absorbed as well and they are processed through the liver, they also have, usually, more side effects that way

    but because her cd21 was so great i would not be stressing about getting every mcg possible, ya know

    on a side note, many of the pills can be taken either vaginally or orally and the mess is much less with them than a ho-ha bullet, i take my prometrium vaginally and it can be taken either way and it is way less messy that the compounded bullets i also get at times

    I took the pills for several two week waits because I couldn’t, um, tolerate the bullets – serious, serious irritation and pain and stuff. They raised my numbers similarly even when not pregnant, so don’t worry about that number. I think mine this time (and last) was higher than that from the booster’s assistance.

    My only side effect from the pills was a fatigue unlike anything ever before and the best night’s sleep this side of fibro drugs. I LOVED being on the pills. I wish I could take them forever.

    My gyno once told me that there is a progesterone patch that you can get that insurance will not usually cover if you aren’t pregnant but will often cover if you are. I’m asking for it the minute I’m sure we’re pregnant. Am I ever sick of hoo-ha bullets.

    Two new studies show why some people are more attractive for members of the opposite sex than others.

    The University of Florida, Florida State University found that physically attractive people almost instantly attract the attention of the interlocutor, sobesednitsy with them, literally, it is difficult to make eye. This conclusion was reached by a series of psychological experiments, which were determined by the people who believe in sending the first seconds after the acquaintance. Here, a curious feature: single, unmarried experimental preferred to look at the guys, beauty opposite sex, and family, people most often by representatives of their sex.

    The authors believe that this feature developed a behavior as a result of the evolution: a man trying to find a decent pair to acquire offspring. If this is resolved, he wondered potential rivals. Detailed information about this magazine will be published Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

    In turn, a joint study of the Rockefeller University, Rockefeller University and Duke University, Duke University in North Carolina revealed that women are perceived differently by men smell. During experiments studied the perception of women one of the ingredients of male pheromone-androstenona smell, which is contained in urine or sweat.

    The results were startling: women are part of this repugnant odor, and the other part is very attractive, resembling the smell of vanilla, and the third group have not felt any smell. The authors argue that the reason is that the differences in the receptor responsible for the olfactory system, from different people are different.

    It has long been proven that mammals (including human) odor is one way of attracting the attention of representatives of the opposite sex. A detailed article about the journal Nature will publish.
