Re: anyone having twins in the fall of 2010?

Karen-

Oh if you're having a cervix issue then it totally makes sense to be on Progesterone. My friend had a cerclage and had to take progesterone oil shots once a week.

Re: anyone having twins in the fall of 2010?

My doc took me off Progesterone at 8 weeks. (I took vaginal suppository Crinone, man... talk about discharge. It was disgusting). I hear some people are on it for the first trimester but after that your body starts naturally producing Prog. Plus we're having twins so we prob make more. Perhaps your ...

Re: anyone having twins in the fall of 2010?

Stephanie- So glad to hear both babies are doing well... sorry I was MIA for a while, we're having internet issues at home and I'm so busy at work that I barely get time to eat or pee! As far as spotting it subsided after a couple of days. And I have my Early risk ultrasound on Fri and my babies hav...

Re: anyone having twins in the fall of 2010?

Stephanie- I'm surprised your OB is blowing off many of your requests... can you switch doctors? are you feeling better, still having cramps? Is it the receptionist or MD you're talking to because sometimes I think receptionists think they have all the answers and they don't. I would stay home from ...

Re: anyone having twins in the fall of 2010?

my friend delivered her 1st baby at only 25 weeks and the baby was in NICU for months. So for her 2nd baby they recommended a cerlage and she didn't have to be on bedrest til about 7.5 mths. As soon as they removed the cerclage she delivered so I think if your cervix is shortened and you're already ...

Re: anyone having twins in the fall of 2010?

Thanks ladies... I'm feeling slightly relieved after I called the doctor with more questions. She said the excess neck fluid was suggested and we'll know better next week. I asked about risk + accuracy of amnio . FYI, it's 99% accurate and has miscarriage risk of 1:300 which is probably better than ...

Re: anyone having twins in the fall of 2010?

Thanks for the advice everyone. Hey, are amnio's 100% accurate? Because my husband suggested we should do that if Nuchal comes back bad. But I know there's a slight risk of miscarriage with amnio. And if it turns out Baby B does have something wrong I don't think you can terminate one without riskin...

Re: anyone having twins in the fall of 2010?

Hi ladies- I'm due with twins Dec. 22 (although, as I'm sure your docs have mentioned they can come up to 6 weeks early. My doc says getting to Nov. will be great. And I'm hoping for Thanksgiving or even a couple weeks later.) Babies are growing right on schedule and this is 11 weeks but I've only g...

At the top of the web page there's a "Board Index" or "User Control Panel" link you can click. Click "User Control Panel" and then go under Profile tab and you can update your info.
Good luck,

Re: March/April 2010 Cycle Group

Hi ladies- I haven't been on here in a week or 2. Hope everyone is doing well. Went last Monday to RE and saw two sacs on ultrasound but no heartbeats... too early. I get to go again on Fri and hopefully see heartbeats. The wait til Fri is killing me. But I'm feeling nauseous and tired as all get ou...

Re: March/April 2010 Cycle Group

OMG everyone - I had another scan today (because I'm still having left side pain but they think its a cyst so I'm not as worried now...) and it looks like TWINS! :D
Too early to see fetus or heartbeat but i'm going again next Fri. I'll keep you posted!

Re: March/April 2010 Cycle Group

Girls I am in so much pain today I can't concentrate at work. My OBGYN said I can take tylenol but if it doesn't help then its probably ectopic not muscular! I took it an hour ago and no relief. I'm so scared... I see IVF doctor again on Mon.

Re: March/April 2010 Cycle Group

wow Angela we are almost exactly preg alike! Look at our tickers...

anyhow, ultrasound again on Mon. She's hoping to see something in utero or tube but she says if its twins they will be too small by then. So I'm also seeing her again on Thurs. (next week.)

Re: March/April 2010 Cycle Group

Good luck tomorrow at the beta Kushka!

As for me, still having knife like left side pain so doc still doesn't know if its ectopic. Good news is my beta is up to 4000+ today. So everyone say a quick prayer for me.

I have you all in my prayers too.
