How many ultrasounds - carrying twins?

When I spoke with my SIS she told me that you only get 2 u/s. She said they did one to confirm the pg and ...

Hi. I don't have the same experience but wanted to let you know not to give up. Your post got to me because you said your egg quality was not great.

My 1st beta on 2/4 at 15dpt was 2864. My 2nd beta today 2/11 at 22dpt is 27800. I know I should be happy about strong numbers but co...

My RE says anything over 50 is good on the first beta so I think you are ok. I'm still new to the whole beta thing but I did find this:

The only thing that changed my mind was a question on one of the adoption sites I ran across when we started to look into adoption. The question was - "Have you grieved/mourned the loss of your own children?...
