Honestly I am trying hard to keep the train wreck in me from getting out. The infusion was easy and fast. I did faint as she put the IV in. I felt it coming, I think the anxiety got the best of me. However the nurse handled it like a champ and did not freak out keeping me calm and my mom calm as well. I finished the whole IV in less than 15 minutes and they kept me for monitoring for another 1/2 hour. So the whole thing was about 45 minutes. Itralipid infusion $650, blood tests $410, plane ticket $160, Hotel $164, parking $30, trains $20, **CARRYING THIS PREGNANCY TO TERM***PRICELESS
I have my first ultrasound on Tuesday April 12. So then we will know if this viable. I don't have any morning sickness. I wish so bad I did, but it is early. My only symptoms are sore BB's and constipation. I'm still taking my herbs, and going to acupuncture. I hate this part. One day at a time right?

Yes, one day at a time!! I know that for me it usually takes a little while for morning sickness to kick in.

OMG I am sorry I missed this amazing news and look forward to your scan post. I would have gone for the intralipids too. All the money in the world is worth it to get to term.

Thinking of you. xox

Good luck at your U/S. I hope you see a heartbeat, and that the intralipids did the trick for you.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing your story, I really appreciated it. I am so sorry for all your losses.
