Hi to all the new people!!!

cvargas76--i talked to the doc today about cramping because i don't remember it with my last child, and he said it was because my ovaries are very large still due to hormones. and you are right the uterus is stretching.

tiffichels--exciting you got to see the heartbeat!! glad all is well...

AFM--we went today and immediately the doc was like there THEY are!!he thinks he saw baby B's heartbeat but he wants me back next week to see both of them and measure them. but he said everything looks perfect!! morning sickness came roaring tuesday night. i already am on zofran. i had horrible sickness the first 16 weeks with my son so can only imagine with 2!!!

who is next tom?

Lisa - good luck tomorrow!! Let us all know how it goes ASAP. This has been the coolest week watching everyone else see their babies then experiencing it myself.

cvargas76 - I have been cramping this WHOLE time and the dr. said today that my ovaries are still very swollen so don't worry about that. It's perfectly normal. And remember our orange size uteruses are now the size of a grapefruit and grew fast so that would explain why we would be hurting a bit. Oh and be sure you are going to the bathroom. The progesterone and Iron in the Prenatals will cause constipation and that will cause TONS of cramping. I have IVF on a normal basis so I know all too well those cramps. My dr. recommended Colace and it's working great for me. Also, of course you have some anxiety...you have been through a lot in the past but positive metal attitude can go a long way. Talk to your bean and tell it how bad you want it to hang around. It HAS to work this time. I was in the same state. I just knew this time wasn't gonna work but I was wrong. THANNNNK Goodness!! LOL.

Last but certainly not least. Mrs. Lisa....my goodness....Two little beans!! That makes me tear up. I know you must be so excited. That is so wonderful. Congratulations. We'll all be anxious to hear about the little heartbeats next week. Let us know the date so we can keep track.

LOL - Cool. I will update my list. BTW - Hubby and I found a REALLY neat twin stroller where the seats adjust so you can face them away from you, towards you and even facing each other. It's definately what we would have gotten if we were having twins. They have it at Babies R Us... You're gonna have SO much fun shopping!!

Yeah Heather! I am so happy that everything is A-OK for you. Thanks to all for the advice. I feel less worried. :D

Now If I could only control the spacet-time continuum to make my u/s get here sooner! I guess I'll have to wait until the 29th...sigh...

See you all tomorrow!

Sarah - LOL. Yeah it does seem like forever away - Almost as bad as the 2ww but it does come pretty fast. I was telling hubby this morning, 3 more weeks and we're 1/4 through our pregnancy ALREADY...Craziness. Everyone says it will go by fast and they were right. I'm just ready to find out if we have a boy or girl now and that REALLY seems like forever away. Next Friday will be here before you know it. Just try to keep busy. Best part is, you know it's in there....You just gotta see it!! It really does make it all different and more real. I keep having flashes and saying OMG!!! Seems so surreal.

I have two beautiful step daughters. They are 14 and 11 (God help us all). They actually are arriving for the summer in 9 days. :shock: This means I have to find Twilight paraphanalia to decorate their rooms with. Which, I will love to do because I love Twilight just as much! This is my first pregnancy, I am 27 and my DH is 32. He had a vasectomy with his first marriage at 25! I can't believe any doctor would allow that, but I digress. His reversal attempt failed. So we turned to IVF w/ICSI.

Wow- I have missed a lot! Welcome to all the new people!

How is everyone feeling today? I have been somewhat queasy in the AMs and after I eat a meal, but doing just fine. My symptoms come and go. I haven't had much cramping (some pulling here and there) and sometimes it hurts if I stretch out (has anyone else experienced this?) I think it's probably the corpus luteum cysts on my ovaries that hurt to be stretched out.

Lisa- you are today, right? cannot wait to hear!

I am soooo anxious for my ultrasound on Tuesday AM! The weekend could not go fast enough for me!

Sarah- this is my first pregnancy as well. I am also 27 and did ICSI since my DH had poor sperm morphology. I will be on pins and needles until I see that heartbeat!

Hi Everyone........... It's TWINS for me! I am 6w6d and he said everything is looking exactly as he expected. I almost started crying when I saw the little hearts beating on the screen, it was so exciting! I go for another ultrasound on 6/2.

In regards to kids, I have a daughter who will be 19 next month and is graduating high school next week. My son is a freshmen in high school and is 15. My husband has a 12 year old daughter. My kids are from my first marriage. I got my tubes tied when my son was 3 yrs old because he contracted Meningitis when he was born and it got into his spinal cord and he almost didn't make it. He didn't leave the hospital until he was a month old. I told myself I was never going to go through that again and since I had a boy and a girl already, I figured I was done. Years later I divorced and then met my current husband 3 years ago. He desperately wanted another child and so this it the route we chose, and I am greatful that it worked!

I am having a wonderful day today and I hope you all do the same.

Ladies, I had my 6.5 week ultrasound this AM and you won't believe but...it's IDENTICAL twins for me! Heard the beautiful heartbeats this AM...125 and 115bpm!! Unbelievable! I know identicals are more at risk for problems than fraternal but for now I cannot help but to be thrilled!

OMG!
