Another new Baby Boy

Well my friend Cathy has given birth and on her due date! Ok so she was induced since she had high blood pressure. The inducing started 27th April 7pm, she started getting nigerling pains from about 5am, then went into labour in the afternoon. 4.03pm is when Hunter entered the world. He is 53cms long and weighed 7lb 15oz. Nice size really. Hunter is the product of 8 years and 12 rounds of IVF.

Congratulations Cathy & Shane.

No news

Well the only news I have is not about me! My friend Cathy has been admitted to hospital to be monitored, she is due on Monday 28th April but has been going to the hospital every 2 days to be monitored. You see she has high blood pressure and is on medication for it. It appears to have gone sky high so they were watching her closely and have decided that they will induce her starting 6pm Sunday night. I wanted her to go earlier because I had today as they birth day in the sweep but apparently her blood pressure is to high to start it yet. DAM!

On another note, I have been worried about Saturday rolling around, you see my mother and I always go out shopping on Saturdays but last Monday when my niece Mandy was on the phone …….. all frickin day ………… telling me how it breaks her heart ……. well she spoke with my mum (her grandmother) into going over to her house to see her and baby Joseph. Now mind you I wasn’t against seeing the baby, even went to the hospital the day he was born. I told her to let me know when the crowds have settled and she was ready for visitors and I would come over to her house. Nearly 8 weeks later is when I hear from her! Everyone else had been visiting over this time but me. Her own mother hadn’t been to her house EVER until the baby shower because she can’t get out of her own way and even she has been hanging around. Now remember I brought Mandy up as mine although she knew her mother and didn’t want anything to do with her but what this now? They have all gone back to their happy little families and here we are left out AGAIN. Mandy says, ‘are you going to hold him this time?’ I still don’t know actually, I don’t want those looks from everyone else – Oh the poor infertile one, holding a baby, lock the doors encase she decides to run with the baby.

I don’t mean for these posts to turn into a rant about Mandy but they do tend to work out that way. Maybe I have hidden feelings about the issue????

As for me and weight loss, hmmm that ain’t happening. I went and brought my ‘shakes’ but haven’t been able to do it. I LIKE TO EAT Mentally I know that I should not be drinking the shakes as I do know how to lose weight but I am just LAZY. I had one shake on Thursday morning and half a protein bar for morning tea, but come lunch time the thought of a shake again instead of food, well lets just say it didn’t happen. Now I have a weeks worth of shakes and don’t know when to start it. Exercise, well I can’t even get off my arse to put my shoes on, I feel guilty when I put on my runners as we have 3 pooches and I can’t walk them all together so I don’t take any, GUILT. So instead I don’t go at all. Just so smart is me!

Not much……..

Sorry I haven’t been around lately but not much happening here anyway.

My friend Cathy is about to drop her bundle but that’s about it.

Oh and I also had a sick day on Monday and ended up with my niece Mandy on the phone half the day, she recently had her new son Joseph. She was talking to me about having babies and how it breaks her heart that I may never fulfil that fantasy that I had of being a mother. She told me how I would be the best mother in the world as I had taken her in at a young age and raised her but it’s not the same. I want my own and to have someone who has reached that goal well and truly before me, well it just isn’t right to have her telling me that it would break ‘her’ heart. What the fuck about mine! Doesn’t see think that I have been thinking about this for the past 18 years. Did she think that she would say something that would make the light go on and make My Man’s sperm swim the fucking right way? Jesus, please if you haven’t walked in our shoe, please do not comment on how hard it must be, we know already!

I know deep down that I need to lose weight before doing our next IVF, I know this but I don’t fix it. Well today I stopped by the chemist (pharmacy for you Americans) and brought a few of their medically approved weight lose shakes and soups. I really don’t like the idea of using them but I do need to drop the weight and fairly quickly. I can’t imagine how my pride in not wanting to join the ‘Big Girls Group’ because I don’t want to fork out the $500 but will fork out $3000 to have a failed IVF treatment. Go figure. So I am starting. I know its not going to work overnight but if I don’t start it ain’t going to happen on its own. So tomorrow morning I will give a start weight and hopefully by my appointment to see the IF specialist I will have dropped a few kilos. I have also made an appointment to see Dr Kate, my friends doctor but that’s not until August 6Th, imagine the weight loss by then ……..

Nothing new

So I have nothing new on the baby front. My Man has started afternoon shift so hardly see him except for when I get him up in the morning to drive me to the station.

Now just waiting for my doctor’s appointment. Was speaking with my pregnant friend Cathy last night and discussing the doctor’s appointment and we got on to her doctor Kate. You see Cathy had seen her same doctor for 4 years and only had 1 pregnancy that unfortunately miscarried. She had been asking for tests to be done but that doctor just fobbed her off. After her miscarriage she asked her OB to run a test to see if he has PCOS, he ran through the symptoms with her and she had none, they did the test anyway. Well bugger me dead, it came back positive for PCOS. As her doctor had quit her the hospital that she went to, she tried new doctor Kate. She joined a Big Girls Club ran through the hospital for infertility, lost a small amount of weight, went through her first cycle under Kate and BAM. Preggo. Doctor Kate just says it luck bit we know its more than that. Apparently Kate has allot of LUCK as she has the most pregnant women at her reception desk on any given day. Now you would think that my decision was easy wouldn’t you but no. You see this was the first hospital I ever had treatment at and it left a really sour taste. I then moved on and saw my Doc Mac at 2 different hospitals but after 18 years, maybe it is time to try someone else. My theory is to see them both and check what they both have to say about my treatment and then make a decision. I don’t know it’s still so confusing.
