10 week Ultrasound

So I flew down to L.A. late Tuesday evening for my 10 week ultrasound.  I didn't get into my room until 9pm and I was starving {as usual}so I ordered room service.  I am almost ashamed to say this, but I at a bacon cheese burger while watching The Biggest Loser. Ha!

When I was done I set my tray outside the door and...oh crap!  I locked myself out!  I had just washed my face and had my hair all clipped and put up out of my face.  I was wearing sweatpants, no shoes, and a t shirt I like to sleep in.  Lookin' good Heidi!  Thank goodness I still had on my bra!  Seeing how I had no phone, my only choice was to go down to the lobby and try to get them to let me in.  So they asked my name and room number which I promptly gave.  Then they asked for the address on file with the credit card used to pay for the room.  Well seeing how it was not my card that did the paying, I didn't know the address.  Fan-tas-tic. To my complete and utter mortification, they called security and I had to be escorted back up to my room and show them my ID.  Talk about embarrassing! 

Anyway, on to the ultrasound.  The babies are looking great and measure at 11 weeks.  They are already quite advanced for their age. :) We got to see them moving and wiggling all around and can I just say how awesome that was?  I just think ultrasounds are so amazing!  So all is well with the little bambinos...

Dr. S also said that it looked like a lot of the pooling that he had seen previously in my uterus was absorbed.  YAY!  So this means there may be light at the end of the tunnel sooner than later.  I am still on bed rest until  spotting stops completely, but I have now graduated from the IVF doctor to a regular OB in town.  That will be nice to not have to travel so much.  So now on to the daunting task of picking the best hospital and Doctor I can in a hurry.  Anyone in the Sacramento area have any suggestions, I would love to hear them.

Happy St. Patty's Day!

Have you talked to Dr. Biesen-Bradley? I know she delivers at Mercy San Juan. I don't know her take on surrogacy, though... Let me know if you do talk to her. Also, the agency has been doing this new thing where they see if your insurance will cover surrogacy, and if so, you are free to use your own doc and hospital with the surro insurance as backup. Look into that if you don't love your options. :)

OMG-getting locked out of your room--I'm sorry, but I had to laugh. Kinda funny! (and I'm totally glad they let you back in!!)
YAY for a great u/s!!

Lol, I know it must have been embarassing, but yep, it was funny to picture you locked out and being escorted back to your room like some kind of criminal!
Glad to hear the babies are doing well and are advanced! :-)
