Congratulations, Jessica :) Twins! Can you believe it. Best of luck to you, DH and the two little ones.

I dont' know about the exact percentages for twins. I didn't discuss this with my doctor, because we only have one. I am sure your doctor could help you out with this or one of the ladies that has or has had twins.

Congrats again!

Congratulations, Jessica! WoW, twins! Double fun and Double joy! Enjoy!

As for the progesterone questions, I called my Doctor's office today. My doctor wasn't in, so the nurse answered my questions.

She says, first of all, they use progesterone all the time, they are very careful with the drugs, and they wouldn't use it if it's harmful. They use progesterone on all the patients to prevent miscarriage even on the patients who have normal progesterone level, she says, it's better safe than sorry. As for the increased risk of minor birth, she says, the progesterone we are using is natural progesterone from natural source, yams, it's absolutely no side effect. The kind with side effects is manufactured in a laboratory which we don't use. They have never seen any birth defect case.

Since they are one of the top fertility clinics in the US, they perform over a thousand IVF procedures a year, I'm gona trust them on this one.

Take care everybody,
May

I thought i would pop over here after getting a +ive yesterday. Still cant believe it and expecting it to go wrong. We have our scan on the 1st Nov, which is our 2nd anniversary so really hoping it is a day to celebrate.

Jessica - Great news on the Twins, take care

Tilly - How did your scan go?

Take care

Congratulations everyone!!
So many twins. Wow!!

Thanks for the update on the progesterine shots. I only have three shots left. Since Mid August, I've had a least one shot a day (except for retrevial day). Whatever will DH and I do everynight at 8pm instead of stick a big needle in my bottom?!

Have a wonderful day ladies!!

Hi mia,

how are you doing? Still doing the hpt's? I have bought 19 so far, havent used them all yet. was relieved to see that todays was quite a bit darker than yesterdays. I wonder when the worrying stops, or if it ever will.

Take care

love

hi guys..... i just had a tip for the shots in the bum... take a warm to hot washcloth and place it over the shot area right after you get the shot.... it warms the oil and muscle.... less aches, and less bumps... it really helped!!

good luck all

Hi Sue,
I have 15 +ive HPT . I threw away the early -tive ones. Who wants to obssess over evaporation lines???? So, I guess we are about tied on the number of tests we have. I just have used all mine already.

I will not buy more :oops: I will not by more :oops: I will not buy more :oops:

I do not know when my scan will be but most likely around my birthday 10-28. UUGHH! I will be the big 3-5.

My HCG was 263!!! Twins????

Colleen, Thank you for the tip I will definately try that one.


Girls, WE ARE PREGNANT!!!!!!!!! :wink:

Hi Julesg,

So good to see you over here, we can get stressed together over the next 3 weeks!!! I sent Tilly a private message since she hadnt posted over here after her scan and she said everything was fine. She is going to post on the 1st try thread.

What did dh say when you phoned him?

Hope everyone is feeling ok.

Take care

love
