On Wednesday I had some very, very bad cramps – I was very worried but there was no bleeding so I tried to just think that it was my uterus stretching. I have still been feeling morning sickness but it has not been as bad as it was earlier in the week. Last night I was going to make home made pizza for dinner but in the end, I really wanted roast chicken sandwiches – really, really wanted them. I don’t think it was a craving, just really felt like it.
I am nervous about the scan tomorrow. There is a chance that we are having twins because we put two embryo’s back and I am nervous about the outcome either way. On one hand, I would dearly love to have twins as it would complete our family nicely. JourneyMan doesn’t really want twins though, he is worried about how much work it will be (which I am sure it would be enormous!) but I like to focus on the lovely fact of more love being brought into our family.
The biggest thing that I worry about if it’s twins is getting them born healthy. I am worried about my unicornuate uterus being too small to accommodate them for the full term of the pregnancy. I have done plenty of research and whilst it is not common, there are certainly documented cases of successful twin births from a unicornuate uterus.
We did weigh all this up before we decided to transfer two and decided that it was worth the risk. I had spoken to my fertility specialist about it and he has always maintained (and he should know, he has been in there 3 times when doing laparoscopies!) that the ‘good’ part of the uterus is only a little bit smaller than a normal one – which is a great relief. My OB also
There is also the fact that I carried JBB to full term without any problems, except for some cramps but I can put up with that. I don’t know if it’s twins – some people saying they definitely think it is, some are saying they definitely think it isn’t. The HCG numbers are not convincing and the only thing that makes me think ‘maybe’ is that I am already huge – I look like I am 6 months pregnant already. This is very subjective though and could also be that I have just put on weight or that I am massively bloated (which I know that I am). I just don’t know.
Most of all, I am hoping for a healthy baby or babies tomorrow. At the end of the day, that is all that I worry about – seeing that beautiful heartbeat and knowing the little one is growing and thriving.
