Raven - So glad the ultrasound looked good and you saw a heartbeat. Did they have any idea why you are bleeding. How scary!

Cat - No real reason given. He didn't seem worried at all. Told me, "50% of IVF patients bleed. Most if them don't miscarry. If you're going to miscarry, there's nothing we can do to stop it. I wouldn't worry. Everything looks great. See you in a week."

Of course, I love him and he was much more compassionate than that, but this was the "gist" of what he said. :D

Raven - My heart sank when you sd the bleeding was back...then I was filled with joy when I read that you saw the teeny hb!!!! SO amazing! I'm so glad you were able to get in early!

Cindy - How are you doing?

Cat - How are you feeling?

I hope everyone is doing well!

I am trying to keep busy until Friday. I can't wait to see the babies! My m/s...or all day sickness sucks! I'm taking the Phenergen but it doesn't seem to be working as well as it did the first few days...it seems to take the edge off but isn't making it totally go away...of course if I don't take it I feel awful so its helping some at least! Oh well...I asked for it and I'll take whatever is thrown at me!! These babies will be worth it!!

DS is getting so excited about the babies...I almost think we should have waited a little longer to tell him so he didn't have to wait so long for them to get here! He rubs my tummy all the time and is so sweet. He told me he couldn't wait for them to get big enough he can feel them! I just love him so much!!

HI EO!

Been sick as a dog, not morning sickness....a very bad upper respitory thing. It has kicked my butt.

I have my first official OB appointment tonight at 5:30pm.

I have my food aversions still big time...eating is not fun for me. I can't wait until that passes. THe headaches are killer but i'msure that's just worse due to the sinus issue. UGH! OTher than that, I still look 4 mos pregnant still...hahahaha...

It's very rainy here today, thunderstorms too. It's nice, but it sucks i gotta go get ready for work. It's very comforting weather. Oh well.

HOpe everyone has a good day. Miss you all, sorry I havent done lots of personals, just been sick.

Hi Ladies,

I'm a bit terrified as I started spotting a little bit today. Mostly red flecks when I wipe but a little bit more on my pad this morning. I am really worried I am going to miscarry again. I have a call into my clinic (not sure they can do anything).....

ughhhh

Cindy - I am due December 5th. I am hoping this pregnancy lasts that long...

Been a long week girlies. Haven't posted much because my mood has been pi$$ poor and I'm not here to rain on anyone's parade or bring any of you lovlies down.

Saw baby and :hb: on Tuesday after the bleeding started. Dr. Awesome RE told me to come in whenever if I was worried or scared or if I passed tissue or if I was bleeding heavier than a period. Woke up around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday morning and passed a lot of tissue - A LOT. I was certain I was no longer preggo. Oddly, after I passed all those clots, my bleeding went to dark brown spotting and lightened up considerably.

I went in around lunchtime on Wednesday ("Why rush to your miscarriage?" I thought) and there she was - my little bean - happy as can be :hb: ing away.

Who knows what to think at this point? It's so hard to imagine this ending with a baby, but now that I've seen my baby and seen its little heart fluttering, how in the world could all of this happen and this child not be meant to be? What an absolute mind screw. :dunno:

Mommy - I don't know when I will be released to an OB. I have another u/s on Monday. Maybe I will find out something then. I hope your appt goes well today.

Raven - That's go to be so scary. I'm so glad baby is still holding strong! You've got a little fighter!

Appt went great. My OB was thrilled that we are expecting twins. Both babies are measuring the same and right on track. Both little hearts just beating away! I go back to my OB in 6 wks and he sd the high risk Dr will call me next week to schedule something within 2 wks and he sd I'll go to the high risk and get an u/s every 3 wks! So I'll have appts about every 3 wks for a little while! Here are a few pics...

Both babies were wiggling around and you could see there little arms and legs. It was so amazing!

He sd they are about 1 inch...he didn't. Give many details...just sd everything is perfect. He knows that I obsess so he stays pretty vague and only tells me what he thinks I need to know. Which is ok with me.
