Boy has it been a busy weekend! Thursday I had an appointment with my OBGYN and it went great! She approved me as a good candidate to be Angies surrogate, filled out the paper work I needed and sent it back to Angies doctor in Minnesota. The only thing she was a little worried about was my size since they are putting in 2 embryos and it is very possible that I could get pregnant with twins! She said that people my size have twins all the time so she thought everything would be fine. As long as there aren't more than 2 in there! I mean am I having babies or a litter of kittens under the stairs!! Hehe... Christy!
So everyone who has known me forever knows that I have always been tiny. Half the time when I am seeing a new doctor they don't think anything of it. But every once in a while I get a doctor who thinks I'm sick and needs help. Well it didn't get that bad this time but it did become a little bit of an issue later in the day. I got a call from Dr. Campbells nurse, Dawn, in Minnesota. She said that the doctor reviewed the paperwork I sent back to him a week ago and wanted to know what size my babies were. I told her that my daughter was 6 lbs 2 oz and my son was 6 lbs 9 oz. She seemed a little worried. She said "Oh so they were a little on the small side huh"? I didn't think that was that small but whatever! She said that Dr. Campbell was a little worried about my size and if I could handle carrying twins. There is a 20% more chance that you could get pregnant with twins when you go through IVF. When she said that, my southern girl attitude came out and I got a little sassy with her! I was like "Oh no you are not going to deny me because I'm small"! I probably argued with her for about 2 or 3 minutes and I think she was a little taken back by the way I reacted. Oops! By the end of the conversation she said that she wasn't worried and that a large part of the decision would be made by what my doctor thinks. I was like "Well I know she fine with it"! Honestly, I think it will be fine. Just a little bump in the road.
That evening I attended the first night of the CMA music festival! Jon and I go every year and it never gets old! That night Alan Jackson sang a song that I thought was very appropriate for the day. He sang "Little Bitty"!
"Well, its alright to little bitty
Little hometown or a big ole city
Might as well share, might as well smile
Life goes on for a little bitty while"!
The rest of the weekend I took a break from the baby making business and enjoyed Nashvilles biggest event of the year, listened to great music, bonded with friends, got some great pics, and met some great new people!
"Good ole boy and two pretty little girls
Start all over in this little bitty world
A little bitty plan and a little bitty dream
It's all part of our little bitty scheme"!
I may have changed that up a little bit! So, next we need to wait for Dr. Campbell to get the paperwork from my doctor, Dr. Felix. And when they officially accept me as a surrogate ( and they will!) the next step will be to go to Minnesota!
