Not much to say today. Everything is going good. Maybe I should have turned this into a long post about how well things are going?
I made the second payment in a week's time for the donor eggs. Little over 6k to still pay out.
$18,799.65 for the donor eggs, physician services and embryology services. $155 for sperm cryopreservation. $365.00 for the office consult. $19,319.65 before any other fees like embryo cryopreservation. We are guaranteed two blastocysts. We are hoping for more of course but don't know if we'll get them. It could be a one shot deal since I'll be transferring two.
I've lost 3.6 pounds since the appointment last week. I'm wondering if it is because I went off the prilosec. I know that particular drug can cause weight gain. Might be one of the reasons why I was able to gain so much weight when I went on it last year in March. Maybe now that I'm off it the weight will come back off? I can hope.
Yesterday I took a six hour block of time to work on the baby afghan for a friend. M and I are more friendly since meeting her at the marriage retreat. Her husband and mine work together. Forty-nine blocks are basically done and just need to be trimmed in white then joined together. The afghan will be a forty-two inch square when complete. Yes, I'll post photos when I'm finished with it. Not sure if I'll get it done soon or not but that is okay since her baby isn't due until June. Bonus part, less yarn to pack up when we move. I'm using some of the yarn I had put aside for the first IVF when I had hopes of making a genetic baby. J was okay with me using the yarn up. He knows I can get more. He isn't sentimental like I am. Good omen to me to give rather than just let it sit there and rot.
My stomach didn't hurt as bad yesterday. Must be the pepcid and ginger pills are doing the trick. I can only hope that today is much like yesterday and I won't be puking up. I can deal with acid reflux but not the puking. My throat is a bit raw still.
