Hello ladies,
I had my US today and the RE said everything is perfect. We had one embryo transferred and we have one baby! We saw the gestational sac and the yolk sac. RE said too early for heart beat. Today's beta was 14333. We go back next week for another US. Also my ovaries are still twice the size so I'm still not allowed to do anything except walk. But I'm not complaining, i love every minute of this!
DH & I are both 30 and we have been diagnosed with unexplained fertility.

Hi everyone, just checking in to see how you are all doing. Tiff, sd, how's it going?

Babyluv, haven't heard anything..., everyone else. I hope you are well.

AFM: doing well, very nauseous in the morning and afternoon, vomiting a bit but nothing compared to my 1st pregnancy, so I'm thankful. I had to schedule my 2nd u/s for wed instead of Sat b/c my doc is out of town. After that I should be able to switch to crinone instead of progesterone oil shots which are killing me. I hope some of you are still monitoring this thread; it would be nice to swap preggo stories.

Hello! I am also very nauseous , but mine starts in the afternoon and is worse into the evening :( I have switched to Crinone as well. My sides are still very sore from the shots :( I've been getting US every Tuesday since mid September and it's insane how quickly the little beans are growing :) we get to hear the heart beats for the first time this Tuesday - we are so excited! Nothing else significant to report yet, but I'll be checking back for other updates soon!

Hey tiff, good to hear things are progressing well. Yeah, the nausea is kicking my @ss. I told my husband I feel like I've been riding the tea cups at Disneyland all day long. Nights are bad for me too, especially after dinner, but o have to remind myself that baby is growing and soon I'll feel better. I pre made meals for the fam so even if I can only eat plain pasta with butter or mashed potatoes, at least they have food.

Not sure if you've started to think about your brith, but here's a website my midwife posted I thought was interesting.
