Re: Two separate transfers in one cycle - GHOST and others

Good luck with your cycle! I actually had two transfers done on two separate days (the thought was that my implantation window might be different than the average persons). My RE did not seem at all concerned with possible damage. I did not get pregnant in that cycle but I don't think it has anythin...

Re: To chose or not to chose donor. If yes, where?

Hi Jethro, I can't speak to your question about the Ukraine because I didn't get our donor from there. Our ED was from Czech and it was a wonderful experience. We got to select the donor from a large number of traits - physical, educational, as well as hobbies. The donor we chose had previous succes...

Re: Flying while 24wks with Twins

Hi Karin1, I flew at 27 weeks when I was pregnant with my twins and my OB (and a twins expert) said there was no problem with that. He was fine with me flying up until 30 weeks. But you have to be comfortable with it. I flew an overnight flight to the UK which wasn't a fun ride but we had the time o...

Re: twin mamas-must have bed rest to reach 36-40 weeks?

Hey there! I guess I too was a lucky one - I didn't realize that so many twin mommies ended up on bedrest. I guess my naivity was a blessing. I gave birth to my twins at 36 weeks. I was induced at that point because baby A looked like she had stopped growing and they thought she'd do better outside....

Re: Question regarding anyone who has had a c-section? Not s

Hi there, What a horrible story. I was put under a general anesthetic for my c-section. I had an epidural but it wasn't strong enough so when they determined I needed an emergency c-section they didn't spend the time upping my epidural then just put me under. So, it can be done. Good luck with your ...

Re: DONOR EGG Tmt Thread... " Egg-heads"

Wishful - great to hear from you!!! Isn't it amazing how different your two little ones can be even though they have been raised in the same way at the same time. I marvel at what little personalities they have!! I can't imagine my life without them and know that these are the two children I was mea...

Re: DONOR EGG Tmt Thread... " Egg-heads"

Hello My DE Friends! I haven't been on here in forever but thought I'd pop in to say hi!! I can't believe that the 2010 babies are already 1 - but of course they are! Times sure flies. I just remember how exciting and alive this board was a year ago - lots of BFPs around! My guys are 2.5 now and are...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Hi May Friends! I just wanted to pop on and let you know that I will not be proceeding with another round of IVF after all. My DH told me today that he just wants the two we have and doesn't want to try for more. I am devastated to say the least but what can I do - I can hardly force him to have mor...

Re: twins seeping patterns

Hi Carolyn!!! Great to hear from you. I actually became proficient at feeding them at the same time. I have heard that some people put them in bouncy chairs and then hold the bottles - I assume you are bottle feeding if DH is feeding them alone - but I used to put one of them on my thighs (my feet w...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

DandMe, I am so sorry to hear of your miscarriage. I had two chemical pregnancies along the way and they are heartbreaking so I can feel your pain. Its probably a good idea to take a bit of time and recover and then hopefully come May or June you'll be in perfect condition for your FET and fingers c...

Hi May Friends - some of whom were also Sept '08 friends (so it seems!). I had my doctor's appointment today and am feeling really good about it. I am not sure whether I will end up with a May cycle but I'll stick on this board until I firm up my plans. Right now the doctor has ordered a slew of tes...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

I think I am going to be a May cycle buddie too!! I had my twins in Sept 2008 and at that point I thought I was done - well, my husband said that was enough for him so we were done. Then last week he said he'd like to try for another so here we go again. We are switching clinics and we miraculously ...

Congratulations Hopeful!! Sounds as though things were a bit bumpy at the start but you and the girls will feel stronger every day and soon you'll all be home enjoying your new routine. The girls were great weights considering they were 7 weeks early!! That is fantastic. Hi to everyone else! How are...
