Tom and I had our first appointment with Dr. M a few weeks ago. We left the boys with my parents. I would have liked to bring Gavin and introduce him to them, but we wanted to give the doctor our full attention. We signed documents, they took my labs and then we met with him. We talked briefly about Gavin and his pregnancy and birth. We talked about his new IVF lab being built. Here is all the info we left with:
*We have 6 embryos from Gavins IVF cycle. They are all fantastic grades and frozen individually.
*I need to have two tests done before we can cycle. Both can be done while nursing.
*I have to be 100% done nursing before I start any medications. There isnt enough research on whether the hormones could affect a nursing child. We dont want to take any risks, especially because Gavin is a boy!
*One major change is with the thaw process. They now put the thawed embryos in water before transfer. If they expand, they are more likely to attach. If one or both of the embryos do not expand, they will transfer 3. He said they have had great success with this and have not experienced any triplet pregnancies.
Thats all. I am supposed to contact the office when we are ready to move forward.
I am more than ready now. But, I am not ready to be done breastfeeding. I will likely do the testing when Gavin is 9 or 10 months and stop nursing him at 11. I will feed him pumped milk until he is 1 and switch him to milk, just like we did with Trevor.
One little problem with that is that I havent had another period since Memorial Day. I bled back to back after Gavin was born and now there has been a big break. With Gavin still nursing at night, I dont know when Ill get it again. Most women wish there period would stay away and I really need one!
I cant wait to be pregnant again! I want it as bad as I did the firsts 2 times. :)

Sorry I am a few days late in posting this! I had 40 entries total and plugged it into random.org. What number was the winner? #6-Marianne!! Please send me an email at TERobertson18 at aol.com with your information!
How appropriate for it to be #6, since Gavin turned 6 months old this past weekend. HALF OF THE YEAR. I just cant believe it. I have so much to update about my little peanut. I plan on taking his 6 months pics tomorrow and will do a full update then. On Sunday, I did put him in the same outfit Trevor was photographed at the same age(see photo on the top of my blog)..is was huge. The hat was enormous and I held it together with clothespins. The onesie was ridiculous. Oh, but, I do love seeing my boys in the same outfits years apart.
Hope everyone had a fabulous long weekend. And congrats, Marianne!
