Twin Pregnancy

Postby Vim4Min » Tue May 16, 2017 12:41 am

Hi, I have been in this site since 2014.. Since then I have had few mishaps. Tried IUI, IVF. Finally my Dr. Said my eggs may be of poor quality, so we should try with donor egg. First set of cycles ( 4 embryos, put back one at a time ) with donor egg no luck ( 2 missed pregnancies) . With second time donor egg cycle ( this time we tested the embryos and 3 came out to be fine) - put back first one, pregnant, but lost it very early. The Dr. Suggested we should try with natural cycle ( with no estrofem or progesterone meds) - he checked my lining, and gave me ovidrelle to trigger the single follicle that had matured. The plan was to naturally prepare the environment to transfer the embryo. We decided since there is an egg let us try our luck. We bedded few times during that ovulation window, then after 5 days the frozen one embryo was transferred. I didn't go for blood test just took hpt and came out +ve. On Saturday ( guess 29th April) I had little bleeding, so went to check with dr. Then found out we were pregnant with twins. My Dr. Suggests that one might have been conceived naturally ( how exciting!). At 7 weeks (15 May, 17) the babies are growing fine ( touch wood). But the heart rates are 168 and 144. Is this normal. They measure 10 mm and 9.1mm.

Congrats, how exciting!

I can't remember about measurements but the heart rates look normal. They say lower can mean boy and higher girl, but it could be an old wives tale.

OMG let us know how it goes! I'm hoping (kind of) for twins too. Of course we'd be happy with just one healthy one. Each step is so nervewracking!!

I go in for my first U/S tomorrow, fingers crossed there's a heartbeat. I had a lot of symptoms last week but this week I almost feel normal which is making me nervous. So sad that I'm wishing I felt terrible bc that would mean there's a little bean(s) growing in me!

Hello Yellow578
All the very best for your scan, how many weeks will it be? Let's hope you also get twins.

Do not worry about symptoms, all I have is frequent urination( specially at night), at times feeling sleepy ( not fatigue) and that's all. When I asked my Doctor he said be happy that you are blessed with a peaceful pregnancy so far, that too with twins. So just be happy.

Best wishes to both of us...

Oh! Forgot to mention about my yesterday's scan. It went very well (touchwood) and one of the lil bean was even moving its tiny body.. :P ...we were so thrilled!

That's so crazy you saw one move?! Makes it so real doesn't it?

I just had my u/s today and saw two heartbeats.

I feel so tired and nauseous all the time it's terrible. How are you doing?

Hi Yellow578
So glad to hear that you heard two musical hearts beating..isn't it the most amazing sound in this world..
I just completed 10 weeks today..and praise the Lord, have no symptom other than too much peeing, specially at night and bloating. In fact for past few days the bloating seems to have reduced too, but having mild headache every now and then. My first trimester so far has been really peaceful. Thank God.

However, am a bit concerned about what I read in Google. We had scans ever week from week 6. It was our choice and our Dr.also hasn't warned us against. Read that too much scan can actually harm the babies. No concrete proof is there but there are possibilities. Very scared! Hope unknowingly we haven't harmed the babies :(

I'm so jealous I'm so fatigued and sick i can barely work. I hope i don't get fired! You're almost st the end of the first trimester!! Keep us updated!!!

I have our next u/s Thursday and hoping they'll measure the heartbeats since they didn't last week. I'm doing double the u/s bc im going to the fertility clinic plus going to our regular ob/gyn so I hope what you read isn't true!!!

it is my dream to have twin pregnancy. really hope that i am going to come back here after your advices (meaning that i do have twins...) otherwise i won't need this thread anymore, but i really hope i will. but unfortunately i can't have any pregnancy at now... which is why i search for https://pharmacyreviews.md or such sites.. thinking about taking clomid or something in this matter.

So I'm at 15 weeks now andnour genetics testing came back negative for chromosomal issues. They also detected Y chromosome so at least one is a boy. I'm still feeling terrible, threw up in the shower for several minutes this morning and took a 3 hour nap this afternoon. Hoping it'll get easier soon but grateful I'm at this stage either way.
