I am with a clinic as well- I was on a femera cycle with an Hcg trigger shot and timed i/c. I have my first u/s early as well on Feb 7th so we will be u/s buddies!
LibraryMo- a coop babysitting system- that is great. I was about to take a month off ttc and cleanse so I hear you on the exercise!
Planet- I have lost of the same fears-
Cleaning- I am sensetive about my environment but I hate cleaning- so I will have to systematize.
Sleep- I love sleep and am a jerk when woken up- that will have to change.
Health and safety- I am kind of a worrier- I hope I can cope with that when dealing with all the speed bumps of mothering.
Loss of freedom- me and dh are bff's we have been together for 7-8 years and have had freedom and spontinaety. Goodby beach fires at midnight - goodby movies- fancy dinners and adult conversation, impromptu protest marches. We'll have to figure out the family balance.
also excited about the love- family and those things that we don't have words for
Twin betas? Really? That would be okay with us, but I wonder... I checked out the website you mentioned, and I see what you mean. Huh. I only had one follicle mature, so I don't know...
I did a clomid cycle (my first one). We triggered and did 2 IUIs at 24 and 36 hours post-trigger. We're a queer couple, so we used frozen sperm. (We had tried at home for several months last year with a known donor's sperm and it didn't take, so that's why we moved to the clinic.)
Woohoo for early u/s!! I'm excited for it. I know it will be too early to really see anything, and that it's mainly for the doctor's info, but it will be pretty cool.
Planet: I understand those fears. I worry about the lack of sleep, and my ability to function. I'll be stopping my dissertation work too when the baby comes, and a part of me worries about being able to get back into it.
Time management - I feel like I never have enough time as it is, so I worry about getting stuff done. I don't think I'll ever be a supermom, juggling 10 things successfully!
Breastfeeding - It's important to us that I breastfeed, but I have very sensitive bbs and nipples, so I worry about the pain, the cracking, and all of the other stuff that happens to women when they start bf-ing. I want to have the strength to hang in there even when it's hard. Our midwife is a LC so that gives me some faith.
Right now, my biggest fear is that our sticky bean won't stick. I had a dream the other night that I was bleeding and losing the pregnancy. It was awful! But I just have to embrace the pregnancy, come what may, and hope for the best.
