A lawyer named Brad Prewitt is one the directors of Personhood Mississippi and he had both of his children by IVF. When interviewed about this and what he thinks about denying this opportunity for other infertile Mississippians, he replied, "Life's not fair." Can you believe that???
In other news, I just saw on yahoo that Michelle Dugger is pregnant again with her 20th child at age 45. WTF? She delivered her last child at 25 weeks due to preeclampsia. Does she really think it is a good idea to have another baby after that? I don't understand this at all. Do you think she did IVF to get pregnant? How does a woman with 19 kids have time to do fertlity treatments? The couple on TLC I really want to get pregnant is the Little Couple.
I had another bout of spotting that started last Friday. It was a lot lighter and darker in color, so I didn't immediately freak out, but still a little disconcerting. We had just been cleared to resume sex that morning, but have decided maybe we should just avoid sex in the first trimester. My nurse said that it is probably old blood that is just moving its way out by gravity. I did have a little subchorionic hemorrhage that showed up on my 6.5 week u/s and not on the 8 week one, so I bet that is what it could be.
The nausea has come on stronger these days, but more in the afternoon and evenings. And constipation. One bad migraine. Par for the course, I suppose.
Tomorrow, I will go down to 2 prometrium/day and 2 estrogen patches and will get my levels checked on Friday. My progesterone was 17 last week (down from 25 the previous week) and my estrogen was in the 500's. Hopefully, my body is starting to produce its on hormones.
