So I'm scheduled to do my cerclage on Monday. One thing that stands out is how much cheaper medical care is here. This whole procedure is coming to $1400 on the high end. My ultrasounds used to cost $1200 in the states... and my cerclage came to $9000 in the states. Oh well! So the doctor is doing a Shirodkar stitch. I had a McDonald stitch last time. I had to ask the nurse 3 times to confirm that this wasn't a permanent. Doctors out here LOVE c-sections - so I wanted to make sure he wasn't setting me up for one. Anyway - from what I've Dr. Googled, the two are pretty equivalent and both can be taken out in a doctor's office - however, the Shirodkar is placed higher up and is harder to remove. Sometimes you have to get a spinal to remove it ... and sometimes it's done in an operating theater. The idea of doing a second surgery to remove this stitch does not appeal to me. However, that's roughly 15 weeks from now - so we'll cross that bridge when it comes to it. Oh how I envy women who can have normal pregnancies. Instead ours is filled with endless online research about medical procedures, risk factors, and constantly watching for signs of negative changes. Anyway that's all I have for tonight. I'm still battling pregnancy insomnia - can't wait for this to pass!

I also think I'm hungry .... but I don't have the energy to forage for food. This is just a reminder of how I'm going to be sleep deprived for quite some time! Changing thought streams..... I also have made huge strides with our move. We have secured pet shipping. We're still waiting for our shipping company to come back with estimates for the shipping. We found a car storage company and have identified 11 potential places to rent. DH is also researching cars since he will have to purchase one a few days within arriving. Man oh man ... so many details and so little time...
Ok delirious woman signing off.....

Now onto the eating!
I know I shouldn't complain but today's my pity party ! Oh and whoever called morning sickness "morning sickness" - clearly has NEVER been pregnant!

Yep this is still definitely sticky bean territory
So do you see the other 2 sacs? My OB suspects I may have had as many as 3 eggs try to implant but only 1 took. DH nearly went white faced when he heard that. I still think it could be a sub chorionic hemorrhage. Either way he said there's no blood supply there - so we will see.....
