Wow! Has it been that long?
Well, We did that cycle without injectables and did not get pregnant. The very next cycle started at Christmas. We proceeded to do the gonal-f and IUI on January 3rd. In that cycle I became pregnant with fraternal quintuplets! I was amazed and shocked by it all.
After a very eventful pregnancy my sons were born at 27 weeks gestation on July 3rd 2005.
Baby A - Lukas weighed in at 1 pound 14 ounces
Baby B - Samuel weighed in at 1 pound 15 ounces (deceased - stillborn)
Baby C - Noah weighed in at 2 pounds 3 ounces
Baby D - Patrick weighed in at 1 pound 6 ounces (deceased - stillborn)
Baby E - Peter weighed in at 1 pound (deceased - stillborn)
Lukas and Noah are now 3 years old! Patrick and Samuel died between 4-6 to 24 hours before birth. Peter died 1 week before birth. I was very ill. I had HELLP and pre-e. My kidneys failed, low platelets, mag level was a 17... I almost died. Thankfully I had a smart nurse who realized that I just didn't look right and she decided to get my mag levels checked and my platelets...Patti saved my life and the lives of my two sons. I can't help but think that if she had been on duty before she would have checked and we might have 4 living sons today.
When the boys were 13 months old I very unexpectedly became pregnant on my own with my daughter! She was such a wonderful surprise! Evangeline "Evey" is 15 months old now.
We are making sure that for a while that she is the last surprise...until we are ready for more. If we ever get to that point, I don't know. But I like having the option of having more possibly if we want to.
