Kitty - Glad to hear everything is ok. I would have tore him a new hole if it were me! My embryologist told me right before the transfer that he has been so well to give singleton babies that they never had triplets before. Went on to say that they have had some twins but none of them ever made it. Then go figure I get pregnent with twins and tha comment he made still haunts me. Well, unless there was someone before me, I am carrying these babies to term damnit! One of my friends was told by a nurse that she will likely deliver before October because of the way she is carrying. She is a twin mom too, just like us (went through IVF) and due the day before me and a nurse tells her she is going to have two babies well over a month premature? How stupid is this nurse? Do these people know what all we go through and that we have enough to worry about? Some people need shock collars!!!
Good idea to take the good juju doctor's energy. lol Keep the PMA up!
Narly - Congrats on your little bean! Don't worry too much about bleeding. It's scary but I had it too. I bled for 5 weeks acually. Not fun at all but boh babies were and sill are wonderful and healthy!
Lisa - Not sure if you caught my reply to you in the other thread, but thank you for your advice! I wish I could turn to my mom too, but she is gone. She was a twin and funny enough, after a couple failed attempts of IVF, on the last one I went to I wore her wedding ring to the transfer. I kept it on and have every day since because not only did it finally work, but I am having twins. Coninsidence?
I hope the bleeding is completely gone, I hated seeing blood. I had a SCH and it felt like forever till it finally went away. My RE was awesome though and never let me think it was ever going to hurt the babies. Thankfully I had him and his good energy to focus on because otherwise I was a nervous wreck. lol I was showing early too by the way! I would say 10 weeks and some could already tell I was preggers. Now I look like I am ready to pop. lol
Purple - That's cue about Hannah. The twins are all yin and yang in there right now. Ethan has his head down while Angelina has her head up. At the last visit to the perinatologist he said they were both measuring 1.5 lbs and that was really good and even on the big side for 22 weeks. They are moving more and more and definately have a personality and yes, can't wait to meet them... but I will!
Mev - Things are well as they can be over here.
Sleeping, walking, even standing is becoming a pain in the arse, but it's all worth it. lol Sleeping is the biggest uncomfortable thing for me. Something with the pressure when I am lying on my back makes me makes strange moaning noises. What is that?? It keeps me up when I am in between sleep at night. The only way to stop it is to turn on my side, but the whole reason I was on my back to begin with was because both sides of my hips hurt from laying on my side. LOL Joy joy!! I hear you on the doppler, that's why I got a cheapy one. lol I didn't see spending 100 bucks on something that I wouldn't use very often. Plus, I got it later on in the pg to calm my nerves about my girl since I couldn't feel her. Now she is moving all over the place and I am feeling much better about both of them. Right now one of my pg friends has the doppler... not sure if or when I will get it back. lol She already admitted to being addicted to listening.
Daisy - Can't wait to hear about your scan. Wondering if you will join the many twin moms or not.
It's always so hard to go by beta numbers to find out but it can be a good guideline.
Either way, your numbers look great!
Ladies... thank you all for letting me crash and keep in contact with you lovely mommies!
