I did the progesterone shots for 10 weeks. Here's what worked for me:

Ice pack on the booty for about 20-30 minutes. It makes the shot SO much more bearable. A nice and chilled booty makes for a pleasant experience.

I could have hugged the woman who gave me that advice. :)

Denise - I didn't relax until 24 weeks. Honest, no kidding, I was tense until then. I just now feel that no matter what things will only get better. Every week is a better chance for the babies to be healthy. My DH thought I was crazy, but I just couldn't shake negative thoughts about having a misca...

Gabriella - Congrats on your twins! I'm having them, too. I've bought lots of books. :) Books: 1) Get the standard "What to Expect Book" - it's got some good and basic info 2) Get Barbara Luke's multiples book (I don't remember the name). It's just fabulous. She has very strong views on multiples nu...

Jaymee - sounds like things are going well and you're on the downhill stretch. Hope you like your new car. I traded in a two-seater for a bigger truck/SUV and it's been an adjustment. I feel like I'm driving a bus! Ange - how about we start a clothing line for twin moms that doesn't cause us to be e...

I'll give you my numbers: 10dpet = 265 12dpet = 621 14dpet = 1242 16dpet = 2484 We transferred 3 embies and all 3 took initially (so those were triplet HCG values). We know that our numbers were high, but the doc thought we'd only have twins. He was equally surprised to find 3 sacs. One triplet didn...

We're officially 26 weeks today - and I'm feeling more positive as each week passes. Last scan (25 weeks) showed that both babies are 1 lb and 10 oz. Based on charts I've seen, they are right in the "middle", so that's good. Seems that they are growing like they should be. I'm in the most awful clot...

They retrieved 11 from me as well :)

8 fertilized initially, but by day 3, I had 6 left.

We transferred 3 and they all stuck initially!!! Now, I am pregnant with twins. It really does just take 1 good embyro to stick.

You'll be fine :)

Anybody dealing with the frustrated DH and kicking? I swear that he has only felt kicks a couple of times!! Why? Well, he's impatient, but mostly because when I call him to come and feel my belly, the twins go quiet! Every time! Then he says I'm not really feeling anything and that he's not falling ...

I'm 21 weeks and I have felt movement for about 3 weeks. My twin girl is sitting really low - and she's kicked my bladder a few times! I feel her more than I feel my twin boy who is sitting much higher. Most things I've read say that 1st time moms feel movement later and that 23 weeks is average. Go...
