Re: Summer Twins 2010

Mommieof2: I am now on strict bedrest, only can get up to potty. I went in for reg apt on 4/21 and the said my cervix was dilated to 1. I was admitted and spent 9 days in the hospital.

Re: FET - how many to transfer after twin loss?

Do you know why your water broke at 22 weeks? This is a really important question. if your cervix was opening, then in any pregnancy, twins or not, you maybe need to consider a cerclage at about 10-12 weeks. My water broke at with my first pregnancy at 24 weeks exactly and my DD was born at 25 weeks...

Re: hyperthyroidism and IVF??

I was diagnosed with hypothyroid about a year after the birth of my DD (IVF) when I had issues getting my period. I assumed it was due to breast feeding and my PCOS but the doc ran tests and found the issue. For this cycle, I told my RE about the thyroid and I continued on my synthroid dose. Right a...

Re: ghost/anyone beta number 1660

Once the Beta is over 1000 they should be able to see the sac or sacs on U/S. You can ask for one this early and they should be able to tell you how many. Congrats!

Re: Ghost- Metformin

My high risk OB says my metformin is a MUST to control my insulin, especially with twins. Even on the metformin I am having blood sugar issues, but nothing yet to cause me to be put on insulin.
Good luck!

Re: FET in May

I have ONLY had success with FET's. After many failed fresh cycles we switched to freeze all cycles. The first attempt resulted in my DD and now I am currently PG with twins (from one frostie!). I still have 20 eggs frozen too. FET's are MUCH easier on the body than a fresh cycle. You only need abou...

Re: Summer Twins 2010

Bjones- Oh no! I am so sorry sweetie. Pre-E so early... I am sure you must be very nervous. Being the mother of a 26 weeker born under 1lb (and a NICU survivor for 4 months) I can imagine your anxiety level is a little elevated. Just really try to take things easy and we will hope and pray for the b...

Re: Anybody do Single Embryo Transfer?

My one frostie split into 2 sac's identical twins. I too was saying "I DON'T WANT TWINS" but here I am at 16 weeks. I knew there is...

I forgot to mention the interesting part about my apt on Monday... The Hi risk doc is very strongly implying that my twins are NOT identical. Apparently spliting of an egg into 2 separate sacs after day 5 is not very common. Which seems IMPOSSIBLE since I only put in one embryo. The only way these k...

I went today for my 1st trimester scan and for the first time, the doc was happy how everything is going. The babies looked great and everything is measuring right at 13 weeks. They are going to be monitoring me very closely. Cervical checks every 2 weeks until 24 weeks and then weekly checks to loo...
