well ladies, it sounds like having high e2 levels while stimming has proved to be a good thing!! You are both preggo and i'm happy to announce that i got my beta today and so am i!!! My beta is 2143 which is super high. Maybe if your betas are also high we can start a new board ' very high beta numbers' he he. :lol:

CONGRATULATIONS Kas and JJC!!! :D This is so exciting! My beta is scheduled for monday 12/29. I took another hpt today and this is the first time the lines showed up quickly. I am currently 9dp5dt (14dpo). I am currently dealing with this flu so I am not aware of any symptoms of OHSS. I dont feel any. My stomach is measuring the same size i started with on the day of retrieval. I dont have that bloated feeling. Im scared to be excited about being pregnant. I guess it'll all hit me whe i get the beta numbers. I just need to get through this weekend and I'll be fine. :D

JennJenn- you almost made it tomorrow is beta day. I have my 2nd beta as well and i am getting as nervous as the first. I am still bloated I guess my OHSS is mild, but I really hope it goes down by tomorrow before I go back to work. I don't want to tell anyone yet. My boss needs to give me my raise and bonus before I tell hime I am pregnant. lol
Good luck- Let us know how it goes.

Thanks JJC! :D DH and I just told my mother-in-law and my step daughter (DH's daughter). They are so excited! :D The only reason I have decided to tell everyone is because this is my first pregnancy. I want to enjoy if from the very beginning and I have faith that everything will go smoothly and i will have a healthy pregnancy that will result in a wonderfully healthy baby! :D

JJC COngrats on the TWINS!!!! seems like it has been a long time since the three of us have been on this thread, so thanks for reviving it and giving us the good news!!! I have also had an ultrasound and we are having triplets!!! ANd here all were a few weeks ago worrying that our high E2 levels were going to work against us...

Jenn, have you had your first u/s yet??? I know your beta numbers were high as well.... imagine if all 3 of us end up with multiples, what are the odds!!!!!

jennjenn- I am glad everything is good good.
Kas- wow triplets, my twins are making me nervous enough.

What an amazing journey this has been. I still find things to worry about. My next US is the 26th and then to the regular OBGYN I go.

jennjenn- We are so lucky to have such success for 1st timers!
