Hi Ladies! Can I join you? I had FET on 6/2. BFP on 6/11 (9dp5dt) 1st beta was 177. 2nd beta on 6/13 was 555. 3rd beta on 6/16 was 2385. 1st ultrasound is scheduled for 6/30.

I have really enjoyed reading all of your posts about telling/not telling...pretending to drink "vodka" tonics, etc! I definitely know the feeling and am so glad to be able to share with you.

I can't figure out how to calculate my due date, but I'm sure I will know more at my first ultrasound. Congrats to all of you!!!! This is the best feeling in the world:) I must admit, I don't have many symptoms yet, so I have been feeling pretty fantastic!

Welcome Leigh - its great to have you join the group. Great numbers you have.... is this your 1st IVf?
DNT its great that were are able to see the Dr. sooner I have not heard of this either but then again this is my 1st BFP. I wish you the best with your appt. Please keep us updated.
Crogers I to only had two viable. They got eight but only 7 fertilized and then only two actully developed.

Oh last night was my first signs of sickness. I had the worst headach and a bit of nausea. But this morning I feel ok just extremely hungry. Have you guys been going to sleep early lately. I find that I am out by 9:00 9:30 I just cant keep my eyes open.

Cookin well have to see what happens at the game tonight. I am not a hugh fan but my DH is. When we were in Boston it was great we walked the freedom trail and went to the science museum it was wonderful but very very cold. I do not know how you handle the cold. Here in So Cal we dont get cold. 8)

Gennessa, thanks for the warm welcome! This was a FET from my 1st IVF. The fresh transfer ended in a biochemical pregnancy. As for the sleeping, I have not been all that tired during the day, but I slept for 10 hours last night--way more than usual. I have been hungrier than usual, too. Sorry to hear that you have been tired and nauseous. All for a good cause, though!!

Are you still on progesterone? I get really sleepy after my nightly shot.

Hi Leigh - Yes I am still on the progesterone but not the shots my RE has me on the sup's. 3x's daily. They are not painful and really have no sideeffects just messy and a little uncomfortable.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Hello beautiful pregnant women! We used donor eggs as our first cycle was not successful and produced really bad quality eggs ( I am a cancer survivor). Our recent IVF produced 5 eggs, We put 2 back in and froze three. My betas were: 1st: 486, 2nd: 2661, 3rd: 24,000+.. We just had our first US yesterday and saw two heartbeats! One is a little smaller and slower but we think it implanted a day later. I assume I am due around Feb 4-6, but they say twins only go to 37 weeks, so not sure. Prayers for all of you for healthy, thriving babies!! These boards have been wonderful and inspiring especially during the dreadful 2ww.

Leigh31 - welcome to this thread! You have som high beta numbers. If I did my math correctly you might be regnant with twins. I had my first beta 17 days after ET and then again on the 20th day. My numbers were 566 and 2020. It looks like you had a beta at 16 and 19 days and your numbers are very close to mine. Only time can tell for sure...but that would be great!
Gennessa - It gets so cold here in the winter. I get a little bit of seasonal depression that time of year. I love the changing New England seasons but I could really do without winter.
I have been overly tired and a little nausea. Tip to everyone...if youstart to feel a little nausea coming on put something in your mouth. It really helps. I snack all day long and it has been helping a lot. Fortunately, I have not actually gotten sick yet. I am around 7 weeks so I figure if it hasnt happened yet its not really going to!

Wow Cooking Leigh they had you wait 17 days for your 1st beta read. I just realized that my ER tested me on 8 and 9 days after ET. ???? I guess everyone is different. It so confusing when Dr's cant be on the same page.

At least this gives my a little smile to think that is why my numbers were a little lower and that I still have a chance to see two sacs tomorrow. I think I am making myself a little sick thinking to much about it. I just cant stop myself.
Children how did the us go yesterday??? Did you get to hear the heartbeats? I hope everything went well.

Amy, I am so proud of you and I hope that you also have cancer support group? I had taken care of cancer patient (my mother) before and I am very happy to see the medical treatments have improved so much and many cancer survivors do exist now!

Valen, I hope the bed rest helps to stabilize your condition? It's so hard to deal with uncertainties. But do enjoy being spoiled!

DNT0809, I wish Thurs is coming faster for you! Looking forward to your good news.

Gennessa and everyone else, thanks for asking. Yes, we saw a heart beat at 123/min yesterday. The fetus measured as it should be (7 weeks). I am relieved that we are not having twins. My morning sickness gets more severe which kept me away from the computer in the last few days - I am only feeling slightly better now and quickly got online and made all these updates.

Anyway, I will try to keep up with everyone's progress! Take care, all!

Cookinggirl--yes, you calculated correctly! Wow, I would love to have twins! I will be happy with either 1 or 2 healthy baby/ies:) I only had 2 put back, but they were both pretty good quality, so I guess we'll see!!

Hi Girls!
Well, I just got back from my ultrsound and IT'S TWINS!!! I truly can't believe it. The I didn't get the BPM's, I was too excited. But RE said they were really strong. One is a tad slower than the other but still very strong. He said the sacs looked great as well. So, wow. I am just over the moon. Next US is the 30th. DH is out of town and I called him on the table, wand still in. He just lost it. Crying, screamin I got twins! So sweet. I sure wish he was here right now.

I will do more personals tomorrow. I was just so excited to let you lovely gals know about my double trouble!!

Wow a lot of great news from this thread last night...

Rubylee & amy27- Congrats!! Welcome to the wonderful world of twins. I cant wait!!

I dont know if I have told you before but I am also a twin. I have a twin brother. Being a twin and having twins is such an amazing feeling. Its just my brother and I and we wouldnt have it any other way. The bond between twins is amazing!

I on the other hand had a pretty good night...the Celtics won!! Although I must admit that I only watched the game until the half because I was getting so into it that I didnt think the stress was good for the babies so I had to turn it off...not to mention that I was EXHAUSTED. Yesterday was the first day in a while that I didnt take a nap after work and by 10 I could bearly keep my eyes open.

Well I guess its time for me to start working. I will catch up with you lovely ladies a little later.

Hi everyone,

I forgot to mention that I make a big list for all of us and it is on the page 1 of this thread, in case you would like to keep up with everyone. Please let me know if I miss anyone's information

Rubylee,

Congrats to your strong twins!

Cookinggirl,

Huge congrats to Celtics!!! I am not Bos fan, but I used to be Rockets' and now am Spurs fan. Lakers defeated these two teams at semi finals so I had to support Boston when Lakers in the game! You did not miss much because no stars played on the 4th quarter.

Yes, it was a huge relief for us to see a heart beat and the nurse turn up the US sound to let us hear the beats. She was happy but the RE still wanted to check my hormone levels.

My morning sickness is very bad and cannot stay on computer for long, take care, everyone here!
