Hello mommies! Crashing again... I see you are all doing well and that is so awesome! Glad everytihng is perfect.
Kitty - Don't worry about no morning sickness... actually nausea is a form of it so you do have a slight case. I had the same thing... just a little nausea but as soon as I would eat I was better. I have a DD and never had a symptom before so this time around I guess with two in there, I had some symptoms.
As far as dropping all meds... if you were a fresh cycle, I am sure this is nothing to worry about which it appears by your siggy that it was. After a fresh cycle, your body has already prepared for a baby and your levels are all nice and high and where they should be.
If it were a FET then your RE would have kept you on at least progesterone until the babies' placentas was producing the hormone for you.
Mev - How are your beans doing? You know, I just got a doppler for at home use and it is awesome! I decided not to go all out since the pockets are not that generous these days preparing for twins. lol So I went to Amazon and got the $40 Baby Sound doppler. It's tiny and cute and works great! I feel the boy most while the girl must like to kick her brother more than me because I hardly ever feel her. My Ob also hasn't wanted to see me but every 5-6 weeks so I needed some reasurance. Sure enough I was able to find both heartbeats and even hear them both move. It has been great! I have my next ob appt Friday and I suspect I will start seeing him every 2 weeks from now on. If not I think I am going to throw a fit. lol
Purple - You are almost in double digits! Just a couple more weeks and you are in tri number two! Glad you squeezed in a little vacaion. We would love to but money is tight. We are thinking about renting a camper and just going to the lake for a few days over the weekend. It's DH's birthday the 3rd and of course 4th of July the next day so we would get to see the fireworks over the lake which would be so pretty.
Pa - Congrats on one bean... I know you were thinking two, but one is perfect! I know how leaving the RE can be scary. I wished my RE could be my OB, but alas it just can't happen that way. He was so easy going yet so informative. Seems sometimes when you go to a different office that you are almost teaching them about IVF. lol Especially the nurses!! I got lucky and have an OB that knows a lot about IVF and I also go to a perinatologist at the hospital for u/s check ups to make sure babies are growing right on track.
Just keep thinking positive... the fear never really goes away. Each time you see your baby or hear the heartbeat it is an amazing feeling that helps reasure you that things are fine, but within a few days it seems the panic is back just because we have gone through so much to get here. So just keep your happy place.
I think bnding with baby is very important from day one you find out you're pg. So hands on your belly and talking to the baby and such. Picturing your baby growing and healthy, imagine how amazing meeting your baby will be the day he/she is born. I have done this since transfer. lol
Daisy - Welcome to the the mommy side! 7 weeks is when they can see the heartbeat so that is when they normally want to see you after a BFP.
No worries. It's better to wait till 7 weeks and for sure see the HB then go early and not see it and worry until the next scan if there is one or not. Keep thinking positive, your baby will be perfect.
Keep up the good work mommies!
