hi everyone, I finally got up the courage to post on the 'pregnant after treatment' board
I kinda felt like I would jinx things earlier on but I'm at 7 weeks today, and last week at our 6 week ultrasound we saw two heartbeats (twins! yikes
) so I'm feeling relatively confident. I'm glad to see there are quite a few twin mommies out there! I've been feeling nauseous 24/7 for the past week so I have to say the initial excitement has faded, I just want to have a couple hours where I feel normal... but I guess I'll have to wait a few weeks yet. My sense of smell is really strong too, and nothing smells good. Bleurgh. But then I think about the babies and its worth it!
In response to a couple of queries on the thread, I'm on baby aspirin and lovenox, a form of heparin, after we found I carry a single copy of the MTHFR mutation. It seems to have helped, this is our 5th cycle (3 IVF, 2 FET) and we've never gotten this far before! And I've had some very light bleeding, but no cramps, and it stopped after about 8 hours, so I'm not too worried about it.
The wait for our next ultrasound is killing me, another week to go, it seems like my life is now a permanent 2ww for something or other
