Belly & Beyond

Here I am at 30 weeks & a few days. Imagine that I was worried that something was wrong because I'm too small...

My research went a bit kerflooey as it had to do with elective single embryo transfer (eSET) and because I'm studying in Israel, I have to do my research here. Apparently, not only are women not the main ones making the decision here about how many embryos to transfer, but the doctors almost always recommend transferring 2 embryos (hence about 25% of IVF pregnancies yield twins). So, I'm back to the drawing board... Reading all of the articles has been really fascinating and now that it won't effect my research, I think I have some interesting things to share... but not today, which reminds me of one of my favorite lines from Shrek 2 - "Someday I will repay you. Unless, of course, I can't find you or if I forget."

You're looking very appropriately-sized.

It's interesting that women aren't making that choice. It seems to me they're the key stakeholders. Is there something in that to talk about? Or is that the part that's coming?
