I told the doc about my milk issue and he gave me a prescription for Reglan. He said in a lot of patients that he has it has increased the supply so much that no formula supplementation is necessary... even with twins! I am hoping this is the case because the formula is so crazy expensive!
The doc also asked why exactly we had to do IVF and what our plan for birth control was. I almost actually started laughing. I was just thinking to myself... birth control?? Why would I need that??? He just said that after pregnancy often a woman doesn't know when she ovulates before her first period. But, I don't really ovulate either so... yeah..... don't think that will be a problem. I guess being an infertile will save me a few bucks by not using birth control. ha.
I had to go to this appointment without Brian and with the babies today. I took my dad to the airport and went straight to my appointment. I was about 45 minutes early but didn't really have time to go home, feed the babies, then get everyone packed up in the car and go to the appointment. When I got there, the babies were sound asleep! I though... hmmm... do I wake them to change/feed them? Or, do I wait and hope they don't wake up during the appointment. I decided to wake them up. I got Evelyn changed & fed and Char changed before they called me back. But of course they were not happy campers being awake and in their carseats. The nurses were super nice and took them and held them while I was talking with the doctor. I felt bad at first that they had to watch them, but they said that they actually look forward to people bringing their babies back and getting to hold them for a little while. I must say, it was nice that they were so accommodating.
I also asked the doc when it was safe to try for more babies. He said to wait at least six months. I don't know why anyone would really want to try sooner than that anyways... that would be a little nutty. It actually scares the crap out of me to think about going down the road of fertility treatments again....... the emotional rollercoaster of that is just not something a person can really look forward to. But, I wonder if it will be so stressful after already having a successful pregnancy. Who knows. All I really know is that we still have 7 frozen embryos to think about. That is for later though. Right now I have two beautiful girls that I can't take my mind off of. Every time I look at them I just think about how much I love them and how lucky I am to be their mommy.
Evy (left) was making some grunting noises and some rumblings in her pants were happening. Char (right) was looking at her saying, "Whats that smell? Do you have poopy in your pants?"
