Thanks, me too!!!!!

Funny, I used to stalk the crap out of these boards because I always had a good feeling I could end up here since we were doing fertility treatments...and when we put back 2 embryos, I hoped SO much that they both would stick around!! It's so amazing, I am SO happy!!

Name: Kristen

Age: 30

Children: 2 Dear Sons, ages 9 and 3 & ID Twin Angel Babies

How long were you TTC: NTNP since Jan 2010 and then seriously TTC for 6 months before doing IVF#1 in Oct/Nov 2012

Due Date: August 12, 2013

Boy(s) or Girl(s); Identicals: Fraternal Twin Girls (pending u/s confirmation)

Reaction to finding out it was Multiples: Super excited but admittedly a little nervous after losing twins before. We transferred two beautiful, healthy XX blasts through IVF though so it wasn't a complete shock. The first time I found out I was having twins was the real shocker and it took a while to sink in. This time it took a little while to sink in but I think I was more in shock that everything had worked out soo incredibly perfect and was an exact answer to prayer! First fresh IVF, two girl embryos and both stuck -- Amazing!!! We feel incredibly, overwhelmingly blessed!! :hb:

Where do you live: Currently, New Jersey. Anxious to return to our home in Florida though!

Anything else: Very excited to have been given what I feel is a second chance to have twins. I was absolutely devastated to lose our first set of twins and had a very strong intuition that I would eventually, somehow, have twins again. Soo thankful to Jesus for fulfilling the desire of my heart to absolute perfection! :)

Thanks JJ! We're very excited but kinda, sorta keeping that part on the DL until the ultrasound. (Obviously not here though ;) ) PGD is 100% accurate but there's always human error. How early did you get a gender guess? Hoping I can get a bit of reassurance at my NT scan. Yay for IVF twinks, how awesome! :D

Kristen: I knew my baby B was a boy after seeing a 3d photo of him from our 12 week NT...but we had both genders confirmed at 15w3d at an elective gender scan (which was really fun because a lot of family got to come and watch!). I'd say you're definitely having 2 girls if you did PGD ! I can't imagine all the shopping in your future..have you started yet?! Lol.

Postby Shelly+3 » Wed Jan 23, 2013 10:36 pm

Name: Shelly

Age:44, no not a typo

Children: 1 son age 4

How long were you TTC: ever since I stopped breastfeeding DS at 6 mo. One angel baby in 2010, then two more m/c in 2011 and two failed IVF's and now finally went the donor route since we were paying a fortune in PGD & PGS for each round due to my age and that DH and I are both carriers for cystic fibrosis (which fortunately DS does not have)

Due Date: 7/3/13

Boy(s) or Girl(s); Identicals: was told two girls at 15 wks, then told 2 boys at 16 wks. Will probably find out for sure on 1/29/13 appt with MFM.
Reaction to finding out it was Multiples: shock and honestly I was kind of overwhelmed in a sad way but DH was so excited I didn't want to ruin it for him so I was just really quiet. I'm warming up to the idea though now.

Where do you live: OC in So Cal

I know exactly what you mean shelly, I was shocked and well not happy when I found out, not to say I was sad or mad, just not excited. But my DH was SO excited (after the initial shock). But it's definitely an awesome experience!

We've done a lot of window shopping and I've picked up a few things second hand (because it wouldn't be as hard to part with if something happened) but we haven't purchased anything new yet. I'm SO ready to start though believe me!!! :D Congratulations on two boys!! I'm excited to have girls but I loooove having my boys! So special!! :)

Shelly - I hope you find out the genders for sure next time!! I bet your DS is so excited!!! :D
