2013! New plan & Macy pics

So, we have a new IVF plan now, but I will get to that later.   Here are some cute pictures from the last couple months of Macy!

Halloween!  This is the best picture I could get...she was too busy watching something on her ipod so she wouldn't look at me.  The right is trick or treating at the high school!

 

Making caramel apples!!


Great Wolf Lodge . She has the same hand in mouth look for meeting both Violet and Santa.  She was really excited, but her molars are coming in and her mouth was bothering her so that's why her hands are in her mouth.  Regardless, she had a great time!


Macy loved the wolf statue and kept giving it hugs.  I think it reminded her of Bela (Bayla) our dog.  She had a blast in the arcade, and thanks to her cousins sharing their tickets she was able to get a pink wolf and twisty lollipop!


Christmas!!!!  Even with our not so great news earlier this month we still had a great Christmas.  And more importantly Macy did.


Collage of silly faces...

Fun in space!  She LOVES the balloon ride!


So, Macy has been doing well.  She had her hip xray a few weeks ago and it looked perfect!  That is a nice worry to take off our plate.  She also had her hematology/Oncology bloodwork.  Her platelets dropped a lot, but are still stable.  I'm trying not to worry too much yet.  We will see what her next one looks like.  Hopefully a fluke.

I had my follow up appt. with my Re.  We decided to do something different for our next cycle.  We are going to do both IVF and the PGD through Chicago.  He thinks we may get better results that  way.  So we have a consult with that Dr. next Thursday.  My current/local IVF place will still do the monitoring part so I don' t have to drive to Chicago every other day for 2 weeks during that part.(6 hour round trip)  But we will go to Chicago for the egg retrieval and transfer, and they will be in charge of my protocol.  We are hoping if the retrieval, fertilization, biopsies, testing, and transfer are all done under one roof there is less chance of contamination with the samples, and less embryos will come back as inconclusive.  I have no idea what the price difference will be, but hopefully it won't be too much more.  So that's the plan for now.  Hopefully there is a hotel really close to them, because big cities freak me out...I think it is the traffic and one lane streets that bother me the most.

Until then we are going to try and enjoy winter!!!!  And Adam and Macy start swimming lessons next Saturday!!!  It is for 7 weeks, and I know she is going to love it!    Not to mention the invaluable daddy/ daughter time!

take care,
Jenn
