Re: Flying while 24wks with Twins

I stopped all travel at 24 weeks but hated my job so I welcomed the restriction. I would trust your gut - but if you go I would get an idea of where you could go for medical attention around your destination if you needed it. I have heard that some ladies pregnant with twins might get asked for an L...

Re: August 2010 Babies in the House!

Hi Karenthescorpio! First of all, congrats on your BFP! I think it's just awful that us IVF ladies have to worry about each and every thing...every milestone... sometimes its hard just to relax and enjoy being pregnant! I am also pregnant with twins and hit 16 weeks today. My RE took me off of the p...

What to tell when people ask about IVF - BFP with Twins

Hi Ladies, Can I ask for some suggestions? We are getting ready to share our news of our BFP with twins with our friends and family. We anticipate that because I am 35 and there are twins, we will get questions like "did you have help?" or "are they IVF babies"? We have decided that we want to keep ...

Hi AFM - Hopefully there is room for another member on this board. We had our first u/s last week which showed a singleton but the second u/s today showed twins. It was a wonderful surprise for us today. The hb's were 162 and 145. I dont know whats normal but hopefully that is. It looks like some of...

Hi Hazel -
We transferred 2 blasts that were pretty good grade so we should have anticipated this! We are very happy though. We've only told close family and will tell everyone else after the first trimester (if I can hide it that long). How about you? Have you told many people yet?

Hi Ladies. Hazel - I am glad your u/s is almost here! I went to the doc today for my second u/s a week after the first. To our surprise the doc found a second baby so it looks like we're having twins. What a shock! We are really excited. On another note, has anyone heard of some wrist band that help...

Ghost or anyone - First U/S after BFP - Yolk Sac

HI - We were thrilled to do our first u/s today at 7 weeks. We saw the heartbeat but RE did not measure it. The CRL looked good. After leaving the office my yolk sac is what is concerning me. The ultrasound measures a ys value of .46 followed by separate measurements of .49, .27, and .60. Is this to...

I just read a recap of this on msnbc and thought I'd hop in too. When we talk about double standards than what was her faith telling her when she got married for the third time after two divorces? Unfortunately the media and others give people like her a voice... She should stick to movies. If that.

Hi Faith 2009 - I think I responded to you the other day but I'm going to hop in again. Did you go in for an e2 level today? Like you, I was very concerned that my e2 wasnt where it should be. Here's my history: Baseline - 53 After 3 Days of Stims - 54.9 :-( 5 Days - 117 7 Days - 317 9 Days - 661 11...

My e2 was 107 after 5 days of stims. I thought I was going to get cancelled for poor response. RE upped my Gonal F and I am now over six weeks BPF. Everyone is different and every doctor has their own protocol. Good luck with your cycle and keep us posted!
