    Cindy, how cool is that to share your friend's b'day! It's a sign of great things to come (at least 2 little things ) I'm heading over to your birth board to check on you. Do you post there?

    Kim, 10 weeks is right around the corner! I'm glad they found the right combination to ease the morning sickness.

    Hi Kim,

    As a 2nd time mom, I found my belly to grow a lot faster...I was in maternity pants by 10 weeks. Glad your m/s is getting better.

    Congrats, Cindy!!!!!!!!!!!

    Kim, I'm in the same boat. Lots of nausea and some vomiting. Strangely, I was only nautious the first 10 weeks or so, then started vomiting the day of my last progesterone suppository. Since then, vomiting is sporadic. I find it very hard to get enough liquid and my Dr even sent me to the ER for IV fluids a couple of weeks ago. Please tell me this will get better!

    Dani - I haven't been posting on my birth board - didn't want to jump in early on and just been putting it off until next week when I feel more comfortable and next week when I feel more comfortable. Well, it hasn't come yet.

    In fact, this week I feel soooo worried. I haven't felt any stretching/growing pains, my belly didn't expand any since last week, I lost some of my appetite and it's still another 5 days until the next u/s (ultrascreening). This (2 1/2 weeks) is the longest stretch without an u/s that I've had to endure). To top off my worries DH had a bad dream last night that one twin had bad results at next week's appointment. I'm just gonna keep praying.

    Hi Grads!

    Do you remember your E2 levels? Did you have your meds increased part way thru the stim process?

    THanks.

    Deb - My first cycle my meds stayed the same, my second cycle I responded much differently and meds were continually DECREASED and I did get OHSS. Sorry, I'm no help. Did they up your juice? What day of stims are you on?

    Deb: Here's my E2 levels:
    After 3 days, 333
    After 5 days, 1041
    After 7 days, 2289, then they had me do 2 more days and then trigger on the 10th day.

    Had our first high risk OB appt. Went really well. They are going to check my liver enzymes each time so that makes me feel good. The only thing is that I had protein in my urine which could indicate quote a "kidney issue." They are having me do a 24 urine collection before my next appt. Got to hear the heartbeat good and strong at 166. I go back in 4 weeks.

    Cindy, Hope the time goes fast before your next US. My symptoms really come and go and even my stomach changes daily. Yesterday I felt huge and today I can barely tell anything at all!

    Thank you so much for posting this Kim! I forget, how many follies/eggs did you have on ER day?

    They don't seem worried about OHSS with me at all, never mentioned it except when the RE told me they look at E2 mainly for just that and rely on u/s for egg development.

    my numbers are
    After 6 days 2396
    After 8 days 5355

    But like I said, going by my follies I have three around 14 and 5 around 10/11. I pray the little ones catch up. I hope to get 5 good eggies.

    Deb, do they measure it the same? That seems pretty high. I had 23 eggs, 21 mature. How close are you to ER?

    Hmmm, I posted a question on a Canadian IVF website where RE's answer.

    I also saw someone post their totals, one lady had 15,000 for her E2! It must be different.

    But I don't know how or why.

    The RE today told the nurse "I think another three days". I go back tomorrow for another u/s and b/w.

    Can they see ohss on the u/s? Like fluid etc?
