A quick update!

The ultrasound was good. They found two heartbeats... yes thats right another set of twins :shock: I am very excited! I have to go back next week, they babies are measuring a bit small. The heartbeats are strong though, both in the 130's so my doctor just wants to make sure they are growing and give me piece of mind.

I am 6 weeks 4 days. One of the babies measured at 6 weeks with a hr of 127 and the other baby measured at 5w 5days with a hr of 125. Both were good heart rates and he had a hard time measuring the smaller baby, so I am just hoping it was a bad angle. My HCG levels were 132.1 at 9 days past transfer and 465.8 at 12 days past transfer.

Purple- that is so incredibly exciting! It gives me absolute JOY to hear your news!!! But- did someone imply that you already have a set of twins??? That is wild! So, when you go back next week, is it for another u/s? Did you have a day 3 or day 5 transfer? When do they start a sonogram ? I am so excited for you.

Kitty- good luck w/ Beta today- I have a good feeling about this one!

Pep- I think your ultrasound is Thurs and mine is Fri so we are on a very similar schedule. Have you seen your Dr lately? When I go in for my u/s, I will not have visited the fertility clinic in over a week! Is that usual for all? It just makes me nervous how you get blood work every other day and then they tell you they don't need to see you for a week and a half!

Bril - this is indeed my second set of twins. Our first set is a boy and girl they are 2 1/2. We wanted just one more, but after a year of trying we knew it wouldn't happen on it's own (we conceived the first set after a lot of IUI). This time after one IUI we decided we would give IVF one try and if it didn't work be done. We had the choice of 1 or 2 blastocysts to put back and we choose 2 to maximize our chances. We are thrilled to be blessed with another set of twins, even though we would have liked to experience having just one baby at a time=) I go back next week for another ultrasound to check growth, this is a little abnormal, but one of the babies measured about a week to small. Then I won't go back again for another 3 weeks. I did a day 5 transfer. Sonogram? Do you mean hearing the heartbeat or do you mean external? I can't wait to hear how yours goes.

Kitty- good luck!!!

HI--I haven't been on in a while b/c I've been pretty depressed by this cycle. Only one embryo made the thaw and I found out today that it is BFN. I am devastated and want to curl up in a ball and die. I hate this. I hate my life.

Now, on to a fresh cycle IVF. Anyone know how long I have to wait after FET?

FET #1 5/10: BFN
IVF#2 8/10: BFN, 2 Day 5 blasts
IVF#3 11/10: BFN, 3 Day 5 blasts
IVF#4 2/11:BFN, 2 Day 5 blasts
IVF#5 4-5/11: BFP!!! 2 3-days (7 cell, 8 cell) 5/9=866, 5/11=1595

DC - big hugs sweetie, this can be devastating. I am so sorry you have to go through another fresh cycle, urgh, but whatever it takes to get our miracles right? Grieve and treat yourself to something decadent.

Purple - two sets of twins wow! I am sending you healthy baby dust!

Kitty - hoping for a bfp!

pep - good luck on your us tomorrow!

bei - how are you?

AFM - wow what a rollercoaster I have been in, I don't know if you read my other posts but my betas didn't go up, so they were expecting them to go down last week and it went up 6 points. We had this whole talk with the RE about waiting for a miscarriage or taking meds to speed it up and and that we would test again this week to make sure that my HCG was going down. Well I tested yesterday and it was 226! The RE was shocked that it went from 44 to 226 :shock: :shock: . This whole time it was coasting and not increasing and in one week it increased. So we still don't think it is a viable pregnancy. Could be ectopic. We met again today and he said he wants to wait until we test again next week. I know the numbers should be in the 10,000 right now. I am not expecting a miracle but I am sure praying that somehow the bean was "sleeping" and woke up and somehow this will be a lovely singleton and healthy baby. One can dream right? If things don't keep going up he has to give me meds and it could push my cycle further down 6 mos :shock: which would mess up us trying to save $$ on a tax write off this year. Plus I am 39 and don't want to keep waiting! Anyway, I need your good thoughts and prayers! I guess I am sort of pregnant still!

I am so sorry I have been MIA for so long.

Congratulations to all BFP.....Kittymom, Eshepard, PA_FA, Riogirl and all other girls who got BFP. I am so happy for you.

Quick update.....so I have been feeling really crappy for the last 3-4 days. I cannot sit, lie down, walk upright..I cannot pee (TMI)...I had all the symptoms of OHSS. I was heavily bloated. So I finally caved and called my RE. He told me to go into to see the doctor this morning to diagnose the issue. Would'nt you know it - it would have to be on the same day we were scheduled for our 1st Beta.

So we got to the doctors this morning, all nauseated and vomiting and he checked me out. The next think I know we are being send to the Emergency room to get a procedure to remove all the fluid building in my system. I was so freaked out..

After what seemed like an eternity the fluid was removed and that gave me alot of relief. It was OHSS after all. Here I am sitting in the ER and the doctor comes in casually and says..."oh by the way -you do know you are pregnant" ....I am like I dont know if I am - but today is my BETA. and he is like - no the doctor from the clinic called and said you were pregnant....

I did not know and still have no expression but disbelief.....Called our clinic repeatedly to confirm and they cam back with the numbers. .....[/color][/size][/b] I AM BFP with a 1st Beta of 323.....woohooo....Finally after so long. Oh Girls please pray for me.





Thank you every one for the support.I will talk to you soon miss you all. Next BETA on monday.

DCRunning - <hugs> it can be so devastating when it doesn't work. Take the time to grieve and take care of yourself, then when you are ready move forward with your new plan. Also don't be afraid to seek help if you need it, this whole process is so hard on the mind and body a counselor can be a great help. My RE says a 2 month break between FET/IVF and any new cycle. He thinks the body and the mind need some time to recover.

bei - I was so so so so so HAPPY when I ready your post. I great news about the BFP! Not so good news about the OHSS, but I think the good news outweighs the bad=) I am praying that your little baby is growing strong and healthy. After all you have been through what a wonderful miracle!

kitty_mom - yay! yay! yay! Great news!

rio - the roller coaster just keeps going. I can't believe it went up. I am praying and hoping for you that it ends well! They won't try an ultrasound at this point?
