Wow,Cindy, twins?!?!?! If anyone deserves "two for the hassle of one", it's you!! I would say "price of 2" but we all now that a pregnancy through IVF of much more than the price of one
So very happy for you.
IVF #1: July-2006: Sweet baby boy, G, born April 2007 (3dt of 2)
FET #1 (from IVF #3): Sweet baby boy, N, born November 2010 (3dt of 2)
Thanks everyone for the congrats.
Christy - thanks for the reassurance of doubling time. How are you feeling? My next u/s is on Monday, Aug 8, that will be 6w2d. We saw heartbeats earlier last pg-so I will be upset if we don't. 5 1/2 days to go (not that I'm counting or anything). Monday is going to be very hard since my appointment is after work.
Guess I'm tentatively stepping in here. Had my beta last Friday and my first US is 8/12. We only transferred one embryo. EDD 4/1/10. This will be our second IVF miracle. We have a son, Isaac, who is 2.
KIM! I'm so happy to see you on here! Any symptoms yet?
I hope you guys don't mind me posting on the first tri board - But I get so excited to see everyone with a BFP, and I stalk all of you like a mad woman.
Cindy - I'm feeling MUCH better than the first tri. Don't let anyone tell you different - m/s is completely debilitating. But I am feeling so much better! I can't wait for you to get through these u/s's and get released to the OB!
Cindy, yay on the 2 sacs! For me the wait between appointments to hear the heartbeats was always worse than all 2ww's put together. I'll be stalking this board on Monday for an update on your appointment.
I had to wait all day through work, then over an hour at the office. By the time the doctor came in I was about to break out in tears (that's been happening lately). Anyway, YES, we saw 2 heartbeats! Both are developing right on schedule. He didn't count but said they were both good strong heartbeats at a good rates (they looked pretty fast to me). We have never seen him this positive and upbeat before. He said he was very optimistic about these. He said we're gonna have to have a big party - I said No, I can't celebrate just yet. I am happy for a good appointment, don't get me wrong, but it's not like I haven't been here before. If next week is good then that will give me something to smile about - but until then, I'm just coasting. I don't want to think about this going well or not - just not thinking about either way, just riding it out. I keep saying I've done my part now I have to let it go and what happens happens - it's out of my hands and I'm not worrying about it - then I take a deep breathe and release all the anxiety. I think the only way I will celebrate today's appointment is by adding a pg ticker to my siggy. That is as far as I go. Sad, that I can't get excited.
So one of the IVF nurses called me last night and said my bloodwork from the day before came in "nice and strong". Of course, I need the number - 45,985. And then she asked if I had an OB and stuff. Then it got real. Is this really gonna happen this time? Will we actually be parents after all? Then I felt scared. DH didn't understand that. I guess its a little different for us because its our bodies going through all the changes and stuff. Anyway, so after talking with the nurse a few mins I jump onto my blackberry to check the beta level on Betabase website. AND, its not there!! I've been trying ever since yesterday. Anyone know what happened to it?? I'm crazed over here.
I just tried it and can't get the page either. I'm glad the nurse reassured you with the 'nice and strong' comment.
This is getting more and more real for you eh? How exciting.
After ttc for so long it sometimes makes me feel like i've forgotten what i'm trying for in the end....
