Re: **February 2011 Babies**

lisa - it is so hard when people assume what you are going to do. I am sorry your boss put you in an awkward position. It is always stressful dealing with working vs not working daycare and all that stuff, especially if you need a new car on top of that! Hopefully you can figure something out that w...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

lisa - sorry about your bleeding. I am sure that was scary for you. I went to 36 weeks with my first two, my OB said they don't typically let twins go past 38 weeks, around that time there is just no room for them to grow. So I would count on a minimum of 2 weeks early. I had a c-section with the tw...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Kamaile - I didn't meant to freak you out=) With my insurance I had to pay $200 at my RE for every ultrasound, and I was thinking gosh if I had to do that for 30 weeks it would get really expensive. I know that my insurance coverage is much better once I go to the OB instead of the RE, so hopefully ...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

mev - sorry to hear about the morning sickness. I too have been battling it, like many others. Luckily mine is easing up a bit this week. I threw up almost every day for about two weeks... yuck! I also have been dealing with constipation, the good news is that this is all normal!!! I know that may b...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

What a great day! The ultrasound was so amazing, they actually look like little people. Both babies are doing great. I got to see Baby A's head and face and B was sucking his/her thumb. You could also see the babies hand and fingers, it was so wonderful. Both babies were lazing and the doctor wanted...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

I hope everyone else had a great weekend. We spent the fun weekend "camping" in a rustic fire tower cabin. It was a ton of fun and the view was amazing. We let the kids try fishing for the first time, they didn't catch anything, but they had fun trying. We roasted marshmallows and hot dogs over the ...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

kitty - I am sorry that you had a scare. Blood is so scary when you are pregnant. I had a few days of bleeding with my first set of twins, it was right around 11 weeks. I was freaked out it was bright red and it seemed like a lot. It all turned out okay! I am praying that you are just having a littl...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

Tess - I am so sad for you. I hope you can take the time to grieve your loss and then try again with a positive attitude. Have faith that it will happen for you! Kamaile - I was told pools were okay, no hot tubs. I think I must have a pretty lenient RE. I am allowed to exercise, have intercourse, li...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

Stephanie - always glad you are crashing! I have a set of boy/girl twins already, you are in for a wonderful treat. It was a inexpensive trip, we rented a forest service cabin, it was only $30 a night, but it was perfect to catch up and chat with the girls. mev - I started looking pudgy around 12 we...

PA - I am glad you are getting plenty of rest and it sounds like you are catching up on some good TV. I too am up for a huge ultrasound wait. I go in next week ...

Re: **February 2011 Babies**

I am happy to be back from a little vacation. I don't have anything too exciting to say. My lazy belly muscles have flopped out, I don't quite look pregnant.. more like I have binged on beer and fries=) I have one more week until my next ultrasound and then I am off to OB land. I can't quite believe...

PA - I am worried about you too and praying for you! Rio - what an ordeal you have been through. I can't even imagine the struggle, I hope that it can come to a quick resolution for you. mev - congrats on the twins! The first trimester and the last are the roughest. I have had (both times) killer mo...

Re: May cycle buddies :)

lisadcb - I know that 2ww is so hard. Your numbers seem a bit high, but not over the top to me. Your second number is in the right range for twins. At 8dp5dt you would be at 13days past ovulation the highest level reported for that for twins was 1823, and you are well below that. For your first beta...
