Tortilla: I had my ultrasound at 5wk6days. He prefers to do them in the 6th week but he is only at the clinic close to me once a month. We did it a bit early to save me the drive----this one time :)

I think a lot of clinics wait until the 6 or 7 weeks mark. Just think- if we were "normal" pregnancies, we wouldn't be getting one until 12 weeks or later!! I'll have another at almost 8, another at 10, another at 12. Then---I don't know!

tortilla - I was 5 weeks 5 days for my 1st u/s, but that was because they thought I was miscarrying and were checking. I was originally scheduled to have it at 6 weeks 5 days.

Babies - that is EXACTLY what our baby's HB looked like LOL. I didn't think about it until I saw it on your post. :lol:

marymegan- I too had to use tickerfactory because the other one I tried would not work. Good luck!

My next sono is tomorrow. It's been two whole weeks since my last one, and I'm anxious to see that everything is ok. :shock:

Hello my lovely ladies... How is everyone doing?

Dogz good luck with your scan today, I know the 2 weeks has seemed like an eterninty.

Angela, I am sure you will see a perfect HB next week. Can't wait until your scan to here the news. Patience dust to you.....

Tortilla, I had my first ultrasound at the end of my 5th week. But, I was also released at 8 weeks, I am hearing now that many REs are keeping people longer.

AFM, I had my OB appt yesterday... I got to see the little one again.. HR was 171, I am beginning to think it's another boy because of the HR pattern... Still have 11 weeks to find out :(. I don't go back until end of next month, now the normalcy begins. LOL

Looks like I have a due date of April 30th if I am calculating everything right.

Had my 2nd beta today and it went from 438 to 2073 in 72 hours so I feel braver to move over to this site.

I have another beta Monday and then an ultra-sound.

Looks like all you ladies are doing great and it is so mice to see familar names.

Hi Mommies!
So I can't sleep tonight! I go in for my first ultrasound tomorrow afternoon and I'm soooooo nervous. I don't have many symptoms and I really can't quite believe I'm really pregnant until I hear a heartbeat or heartbeats.
Please keep me in your thoughts. I need all the prayers I can get. :lol:
I'll keep you posted and will get to personals soon.

Hi Ladies. I just got back from my 2nd u/s and everything looks great. The little munchie has grown so much in 10 days and the H/B was at 164. The doctor said everything looks really good. I convinced them to see me one more time given that i do not see my OB until 9/14 so i go back next week for one last time. Still being cautiously optimistic though with everything that happpened last time. I have also been really bloated and my stomach is already popping out but the RE said it is because my ovaries are still big from all the meds. I have to wear all big clothes now.


Totilla and Dogzrule: how did the u/s go?

How is everyone feeling? I am pg w/ twins, so maybe my symptoms are a little worse than w/ a singleton. I have motion sickness all day and all night. I'm eating all the time! It doesn't matter what I eat, two hours later I'm hungry again. My bb's are sore and growing, my stomach is super bloated too and my pants are already tight! Sometimes I have these little pulling feelings in my lower abdomen/uterus area. Everytime I feel that I'm afraid I'm having a m/c. Anyone else feeling this way? At the rate I'm eating, I'm going to be as big as a house! I'm starting out at 127! GOODNESS, I'm going to be HUGE!!!!

Marymegan: I think the symptoms are certainly worse with two.
I'm also sick from morning til night (and sometimes wake up feeling dreadful in th middle of the night even!). I don't have an increased appetite yet- in fact I can hardly stomach a thing :(
I think eating every couple of hours is really good though because they say eating small amounts helps with the morning sickness.
I am loosing a bit of weight except, like you, my belly is definatly getting bigger! I read up on when a person can expect to start showing with twins. The majority of people said that if they had a small frame they were totally out of their clothes by 10 weeks at the latest. I'm like you- not very big to begin with, so we will probably be showing early early early. I'm showing now and for about 2 weeks I was the only one who noticed the bump, but my husband said yesterday "I can see your belly is getting bigger!" He loves it haha. A book I was reading on twins said that people with twins often reach average full term size at 6 months. It also said to plan on outgrowing your maternity clothes in the last months! THenn what the heck are we supposed to wear!?!?!
I'm also aout to go up a size in bra and I was blessed in that area to begin with----unfortunatly :x


I'm so jealous of you guys that had your ultrasounds today!! Mine is monday and I'm going totally crazy waiting on it. I just need to see those heartbeats! I really need to know that both of my babies are still growing in there.

Those of you that mentioned you have ultrasounds in your 5th week did you see anything? I've just been so freaked out because, by total chance, we saw one of the heartbeats. the hiding baby (the girl I always say!) we couldn't see a HB on, but my RE had told me before we even started the u/s that I wouldn't be able to see anything except for a black hole for the gestational sac. Both babies had yolk sac which they said meant they were developing fine.
I'll be 7 wks 4 days by the last u/s 7 wk 5 days by the retrieval date.

Hi there gals!
Thanks for sending me good thoughts...it worked! So I went for my ultrasound and they saw 2 sacs with yolks but could only see and hear one heartbeat. She said the other sac was harder to see...so she said I will go in next Friday for another ultrasound to see if the other sac is showing a heartbeat. If not it should just reabsorb into my body. I'm very happy to have one heartbeat, but when I didn't see the other one it was hard to take. Now more waiting! :? Any thoughts on this?

LW: Hang in there! Monday is right around the corner. I know it's hard though. You will get those heartbeats! :D

Marymegan: Yes I'm feeling bloated too but my weight hasn't risen...at least not yet. Sorry you're feeling motion sickness. ICK! After today's u/s the hubby and I went to a movie and of course I had some popcorn. Bad choice! I ended up throwing it up! :roll:

Babiesgalore: Sounds like your baby is doing awesome! Woohoo! I too feel like I need to buy some new bigger pants and shirts and it just seems way to early. Better comfortable in bigger stuff! :lol:

Cressica: Welcome! Those are some outrageous beta numbers! :shock: How many embies did you put in?

Tortilla: this is exactly what I'm going through. We saw one heartbeat, but not the other. I was really early on though so they weren't worried. We plan to see both heartbeats on Monday. I read online though, that sometimes the pregnancy can be 10 weeks or a bit further before a heartbeat is detected. My SiL is pregnant with twins as well. She has one, like I do, that's kind of hiding in the back. She said they have had a hard time finding a HB the entire time, but the baby continues to grow along with the other and typically they can hear two HB's. Now she is further along and they can see both moving around.
I pray that you see your babies heartbeats both going along strong at your next ultrasound. As I told my husband, I've seen them both- I know they are both there and I want both of them born and healthy and in my arms. I need them BOTH to be ok. We're always happy to be adding to our families in anyway at all, but after seeing that sac there and knowing they are there you want them to stay. Stay strong! [/i]
