So many new people yaayyy!!

Lua glad you found us! Can't wait for your u/s update!

Dragnfly so awesome you saw your baby's hb!

Readyandwaiting great betas! Congrats!

Pcanoe I hope your u/s went great today. :)

Wanttobmommy - FX for Friday!

Susie so sorry to hear your beta isn't doubling, what has your clinic said? Hugs.

K8_YVR yaayyy for hearing the hb! I hope the bleeding stops but you're right it can be from the endometrin, still nerve wracking.

Albrooks - awesome that you saw the hb! I can't wait to see my little bean's heart beating away

Delhibelly - sorry no advice on the iron, is that 27-30 mg a day while pregnant or just in general?

AFM - I had a second beta drawn today but won't have results until the morning. Anyone have any symptoms yet? I have none and its freaking me out, May 4th u/s can't come soon enough! Hoping I'll get some peace of mind from beta tomorrow.

I got to see a heartbeat today :) but it's one thing after another in that the heartbeat was 86 bpm and after googling it seems like that is quite low. Ughhhh this is never easy is it. My RE was happy with it but now I feel deflated, but Definately not losing hope. I am so so happy for everyone who has received good news this week.

Pcanoe - you are only a couple of days behind me as far as transfer date & we were told we may not even see the heart beating so early. The fact that you got one is great. Hope it is much stronger at your next u\s. What is your due date? Mine is Dec 14!

Yes that's what my RE mentioned as well. She wasn't concerned she was actually reassuring that we could see a heartbeat it's only what I'm reading on Google that is scaring me. My due date is Dec 16 or 17 depending on which calendar my clinic uses.

Google can be bad for your mental health. Lol. But I do it too. I have been spotting since last Monday & even though the nurses & RE say it is normal, it still worries me. I wish it would just stop.
So when do you get another u/s?

I asked the nurse if it could indicate twins and she said not necessarily but I imagine she has to say that. The numbers can be quite high with a singleton but I'm suspecting more.

 

U/S is May 4th! Can't wait!

Sunshine - Amazing beta numbers! Congrats!! Might be identicals! 

 

Does anyone know about a correlation between progesterone level and viable pregnancy? My nurse keeps saying to me - 'your progesterone is high, so that's a really good sign'... My last level at 11dp5dt was 127.

Anyway, I googled it and there are a few medical studies suggesting it.  With all of the studying and googling and stressing in this fertility journey, I never realized level of progesterone (other than making sure you have the minimum you need...) is indicative of viability?

Sunshine, wow what a nice high beautiful 2nd beta. I can hardly wait to hear about yours and Dragnfly's ultrasound on May 4th!

 

pcanoe, like Dragnfly said, you are very lucky that they detected a heartbeat so early on. What a sweet update! I will be looking forward to hearing about your next ultrasound at 8wks on May 12th.

 

Delhibelly, is your next ultrasound scheduled this Friday the 29th?

 

Readyandwaiting, what a nice 1st and 2nd beta, wow your numbers are more than doubling!

 

Susie, any new updates? I am hoping for your little bean to hang in there and stay strong!

 

I hope everyone is enjoying being pregnant, try not to worry waiting for the next stage.

 

AFM, I had my 2nd ultrasound this morning. We saw a heartbeat!!! yay! However, the NP doing my ultrasound did not give me the bmp. She said at this stage (6w4d) its really small and we will get all the measurements and official due date during my next ultrasound visit which is May 10th (approx. 8w3d).

 

Dragnfly, I was secretly hoping they might find another one for today's ultrasound mainly because it seems as my husband wants twins. Last night while giving my 20 month baby boy a bath and everything, I was thinking OMG I don't think I can handle doing this x2. I am actually relieved I am having a singleton. Either way, its a blessing and God knows what He's doing and what we can handle. Good luck for your next ultrasound.

Susie - thank God, that is what I was hoping to hear from you. What a blessing

Readyandwaiting- Wow, great progesterone level, I am on PIO & still have not gotten over 26. But my clinic says anything over 20 is good.

Lua- I can imagine it would be hard to deal with teens with such a young sibling. We just always wanted at least 4 kids, so if we could get 2 for 1, it would be so great. I am not getting any younger here; we are going to have to do this back to back.

Susie that's awesome news! Grow little bean grow!

Readyandwaiting the only thing I know about progesterone is it supports the babies but no idea if a higher level indicates a more viable pregnancy. I've often wondered though if I was taking enough progesterone during my first FET where I was pg with triplets. Two passed early on and I will always wonder if that's why. I worry about my levels now too especially because my clinic doesn't monitor it so I have no idea what my level is at. I'll be asking my GP for a req as soon as I get home which should be in a few days.

Welcome CPolly! you're in the right spot. :D Congratulations x 2 !!

Thanks everyone for the congrats! It's still sinking in for me that I really have a good shot here. So many hurdles still but I'm taking it one day at a time.

Me: 47, SMBC with DS - 2 years 5 months

wanttobmommy - I totally have waves of hunger. In fact, that is my main symptom right now. I'm trying to put good things in my body so i don't feel bad about eating a bit more right now... 

 

I'm feeling a little stressed about the wait between my last beta and my u/s on the 13th. It seems so far away. Also, I have to stop the googling madness and comparing hcg levels. My clinic says my levels are great and my progesterone is great, but there are SO many women with way higher hcg at 15dp5dt. I have a serious love/hate with google. 

Betabase says I was above the average for 20dpo (singleton chart), but man, this process is hard. Always second guessing. 


Me:38 Hubs:54

Unexplained/possible male factor - great count and motility, borderline morphology (5%)

IUI x 3, two cancelled (over responded to Gonal F), one completed: BFN

 

IVF #1 August 2015 - First EVER BFP! Turned out to be a chemical... hey, at least I actually got pregnant!

FET Nov 2015 - BFP! ... another chemical 

 

IVF #2 April 2016 - here we go! 

ET - April 11 (2 5d blasts)

5dp5dt - th_abfp.gif on FRER

11dp5dt Beta #1 - 235

15dp5dt Beta #2 - 1320

 

Plus THREE high quality embryos on ice...

Readyandwaiting, I truly agree that google is a love/hate thing. In regards to your hcg levels, I felt the same about mine. Mine were lower than yours and so far everything looks great; we saw the heartbeat yesterday. Please do not worry,everything looks perfect for you.

Wanttobeamommy, yes I feel like eating everything but once I'm preparing it, it smells disgusting. I end up wasting so much food.

CPolly, congrats on your twin pregnancy, yay! Is your due date on Dec 13th was you singleton date or your twins approximate date?

I wish I wanted to eat all the time, or any time for that matter. I am always sick & all food is disgusting right now. The only thing I can eat most of the time without total disgust is potatoes.

Actually feeling so bad right now that I don't even want to see food.

Dragnfly- Oh no! Thats not good. hope you feel better.

ReadyandWaiting- You re wiser than me, I just eat whatever I get my hands on to. My next goal is trying to eat healthy

Lua- Just buy (that's what I do) or have hubby prepare for you :)

 

Alright, had a nice ultrasound this morning and figured out, we are having twins!! Still absorbing the news. I just can't stop smiling and so want to talk to someone but think its better to be on this group than friends and colleagues this early.. 

How's everyone else doing?
