Re: October 2010 Mommies!

HI Louise - I have heard people say it's "really hard" in the beginning. Feedings, etc, lack of sleep. I have not been to any twin meetings yet, but I just hear people say stuff. I guess it may differ from everyone. I mean, most people don't sleep much in the beginning with just 1, so I can imagine ...

Re: beta 1660?

At 20 days post retrieval my beta was 1756 and I am having twins. So, it's very likely you are, but everyone is different and it could just mean 1 strong little bean. Good luck!!

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

HI Karen, My RE said to stop progesterone at 10w. They didn't take blood or anything to check the progesterone levels, but they said most people go off at 10w. The placenta takes over making the progesterone at this point. The reason we have to go on the progesterone with IVF is that normally the ov...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Yay! Another twin Mommy! Go Karen! Keep positive thoughts and don't worry about betas. My first u/s was at 6w and they barely saw the yolk, etc. they saw little flicker heart beats but very hard to see. Betas vary for everyone! So, Merri, you should be able to see the sac, yolk and fetal pole at 6w....

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Hi Mauree! Welcome! I am glad to see another twin mommy here. I am 6w5d with twins. We had our first u/s last week and saw 2 heartbeats. We go back on 3/5 for our next u/s. I will be 8 weeks then. I am cautiously optomistic too. I hear about losses all the time and I worry about it everyday. This is...

Re: September 2010 Babies

HI Everyone. Can I jump in? I am 6w4d with Twins from IVF. My due date for a singleton would be mid-OCt, but most likely I will be a late Sept mom. I started an Oct Mommies thread, but thought I would join in here too. It's so cool to follow with everyone. I hope everyone is well. I am starting to g...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Hi ladies. I'm Karen. Just found out I"m finally pregnant after our 2nd IVF. I see a few of my cycle buddies in this group. So damn excited to be pregnant. I can hardly believe it. First beta was 71 and the second beta (today) was 161. So all seems to be going ok. Next step is an u/s on Feb 26th. C...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Hi Karen! Welcome! Good luck to you. Well, I found today I am having Twins! both sacs looked good and we saw heart flickers. I am really scared, but excited. I will keep you all posted on the progress! I guess this is proof that 4 cell embies do take. I guess I will be due more realistically in Sept...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Hey Sonya! Hope you get an earlier u/s. I would be going out of my mind waiting that long!! I don't really have much symptoms. Every once in a while I get a wave of nausea and dizziness, but that is it. I heard morning sickness usually starts around 6-7 weeks. I will be 6 tomorrow. My boobs hurt sti...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

HI Everyone! My u/s is in 2 days. I am really nervous. My clinic only does 2 betas if they are rising nicely, so I havent; had a beta since the 9th and I am sort of lost without knowing something! I don;t really feel pregnant other than sore boobs, but I think that could be from the PIO shots. Sonya...

Hi Sonya! Glad you can join in on the cautiously optomistic thread! I am still very worried. I turn 38 next month, so the age thing is worrying me as far as quality of the embie. We didn't do PGD or anything, so we shall see..... My U/S is 2/19. When is yours? We transferred 3 embies (all we had on ...

I would say it just about doubled. Pretty close. Are they doing another beta? 467 is a really good initial #. How many days past transfer did they test? How many embryo's did you transfer? I was going to say it is really high and could mean more than 1.
Good luck to you..!

My beta #s were 11dp3dt - 567, 13dp3dt - 1302, and 15dp3dt - 3016. We had also put three back because we only had 4 eggs retrieved that cycle and my last cycle had ended in a chemical, so they recommended putting back what we had at the 3 day point. I ended up pregnant with triplets but we lost one...
