Hi ladies, hoping to join you here. My official due date is not until September 23rd, but since I'm carrying twins I could deliver in late August. I have another ultrasound on Monday, 2/13.

Hi everyone. Sorry to have been MIA.

We are at 11 weeks and so far so good (I have had 4 miscarriages all before 10 weeks, so it is great to be at 11, but with our DD, we lost a twin at 14 weeks, so we still don't feel in the clear).

I have been so tired - I take naps and still wake up exhuasted. I usually have so much energy and get so much done and now it takes all I have to get through the day. I am also still really nauseous. My doctor keeps telling me that is a good thing, which I know - but it is still a little yucky (not complaining too much though!)

I had all my blood drawn last week and so far, so good - and we go in next week for the NT scan.

We will probably find out the gender, but not right away. We had not wanted to know with 2 year old DD, but I had to pick up some tests and saw it on the paperwork (not the romantic vision I had of learning in the delivery room). We go back and forth from wanting it to be a surprise, to loving that we could decorate a pink nursery last time!

We have seen the wiggling on the ultrasounds, which is quite fun.

My neonatologist (who will deliver me) is super-conservative and JUST took me off patches. He still has me on progesterone shots for at least one more week. Again, annoying but worth every needle!

Hi Jennie! I do have a daughter who will be 3 in April. She's a FET baby as well.

Trying - understand your trepidation given your history of m/c. I've only had one and that was traumatic. I'm of the "I need to know" vein so there's no way I could wait to find out the gender until delivery.

Hi gals!
I hope everybody is feeling good! Sorry I haven't been on for a while. I had a week long work trip last week and life gets pretty busy being super tired and parenting a toddler too! I'm sure you all can understand.

Jennie, you mentioned your DS was having some health issues; how is he doing? I sure hope everything is going ok for him.

Don't have tons of time for personals, but wanted to at least post and let you know I'm still here and thinking of all of you.

AFM, things are going very well. I finished my progesterone gel last week; YES!! That is the best to be done with it. I had my sequential screen and transnuchal ultrasound today. They couldn't get measurements for the transnuchal test, but everything else on the ultrasound looked good. It's so reassuring to me to see the babies and know they are growing well (and have two arms and two legs). The sonographer thought that Baby A looked like a She too! Baby B may be a she as well, but she was more confident that Baby A was a girl. Overall, today was a great day! I am also so relieved because we are finally telling our friends in town, co-workers, etc...It's very hard for me to keep something I'm so excited about inside, so I am excited to share our news!

Talk to you gals soon!
