Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Thanks everyone! It is so fun now after all of that work and heart-ache, to be having nothing but good news. What a change!!! I had an amnio with my son, but I got preggers with him the old fashioned way and on the FIRST TRY!!!!! Now, after trying for 2 years, it's hard to imagine doing anything to ...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Hoping everyone is OK!

Had my NT sono today and everything measured fine. (NT = 1.1 & 1.4) Whew! Disagreeing a bit with DH about amnio. What have others decided?

My babies were moving tons and measuring BIG! YAY!

Happy Gestating!

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Welcome Malya! My due date is also 10/10/10 and it's my birthday! (that's why the pumpkin on the ticker, it was originally a Halloween baby until they backed it up when we learned there were twins!) I also have had a previous miscarriage at 7.5 weeks, so I know the feeling. I am still skeptical, I m...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Merri- Nuchal Cord Translucency (NT) screening is non-invasive and has about a 75% detection rate of Down's. This is done by sonogram. It doesn't provide a diagnosis but estimates risk for certain problems and then helps to guide you in deciding if you will want chorionic villus sampling (CVS) or am...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

I am also seeing a high risk perinatologist. My husband is an RE and he and his partners send all twins to perinatologists (as well as old ladies like me - 39 years old). Twins are considered high risk and I was informed that general OB's have poorer outcomes for heir twins than specialists. You are...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

I am seeing a perinatologist and SO glad of it. The focus is so different than when having one, The diet is all flipped around and the tests work differently! She referred me to a great book "When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets, or Quads: A Complete Resource" by Barbara Luke & Tamara Eberlein. I h...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

I am and have been reducing my PIO shots. The placenta takes over and makes progesterone. With twins, it makes more. Also, I am on progesterone suppositories. A study came out this week that showed higher concentrations in blood with suppositories than with shots, so they should do it (remember, hub...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

That's so funny that you said "never, ever going back there". I have an appointment scheduled with my OB and I am so excited. I've had other children, so this part is not new for me, but I told my husband that I was so happy to be leaving the fertility center. As I said, he is an RE and it is his pr...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

I am a bit m/s. Aversions and nausea-heartburnish. Not as bad as when I had my son, which is funny because I have more buns in the oven and it should be worse! I am, however, exhausted! I fall asleep at 8:00 every night! Karen - good luck on your sono. Brown spotting shouldn't be a big deal, but as ...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

My betas were something like 197, 350, 800, & 30,000. My 4th beta was off the charts! I am seeing one of the partners in my hubby's practice and he does disagree from time-to-time, but never on the big stuff. Tweaking drugs and choice of brand of drug and frequency of tests, mostly. But not which pr...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Hey everyone!

I had my sono today. Two babies in there! Both had heartbeats of 127-130! They looked great and measured a bit bigger than my dates! Hooray! I can relax a bit now......

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Congrats Merri! That is such amazing news. I get my sono tommorrow. My DH (have I mentioned to you all that my DH is an RE? That creates all sorts of +/- situations!) is confident as well, but I am skeptical. We shall see. I am hoping that all of your positivity it flowing my way and I too will have...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

Hi Ladies- I am also on baby asprin. I think it's pretty standard. I went in for another blood test and I am awaiting my numbers nervously. My sono is 3/6. I have to travel tonight and must give myself my own PIO shot., My husband gives them all to me. Do any of you do your own? How hard is it? How ...

Re: October 2010 Mommies!

We do seem to be on the same track! My sono will be on 3/6. We put 3 back in this time - FET. Not so sure about twins, just hoping for one healthy baby at a minimum!

The wait is absolutely killing me!!

Good luck on your sono.

Susan
