Hello lovely ladies, Been a few drinks in between posts for me but you are all still in my thoughts every day (when I look at my babies) and constantly in my prayers. The twins are 11 weeks now and an absolute joy. Having twins has not been half as hard as I had imagined. They sleep and eat together...

Hey Shari, I'd be lieing if I said the C section was a walk in the park. I think everyone responds differently. I felt no pain whatsoever during the surgery and after in recovery they pumped me with pethadine which made it very hard for me to stay awake and as I was on my own immediately after the s...

Sorry to read about your loss. Simply put, there are no guarantees with IVF and most of us go into our first attempt with wide eyed optimism after failing to conceive for so long naturally. Somehow IVF seems like the answer to our prayers. The reality is, it more often fails than succeeds. With all ...

Oh congratulations Angie - what a great birth story! One hour woo hoo. Where abouts in Oz are you?

HI Kim, My first FET didn't work (they put back the best top grade embryo). However my 2nd and 3rd thawed embryos resulted in my BFP with twins and one of those embryos lost 10% of it's cells when thawed. Neither were top grade but they worked. I am huge to prove it!! Sometimes the numbers and grade...

HI there, I would ask to have a repeat beta level drawn and that way you know where you stand. If levels are as they should be at least you can relax until your u/s, otherwise that waiting can feel like an eternity and put added stress on you. I'm not suggesting anything is wrong, just going by my o...
