Hi! Just found out that we're expecting twins!

Age: 35
Children: one sweet beagle
How long were you TTC: nearly 5 years!
Due date: 5/11/14 (for singleton), so probably sometime in mid- to late-April
Reaction to finding out it was multiples: We knew there was a strong chance since we put 3 back and my betas were really strong. I was happy and my hubby was relieved there are only two and not three!
Where do you live: Honolulu, HI
Anything else: I don't know if it's really sunken in for me yet. I just want to survive the first trimester!
Nearly 5 years TTC#1
IVF #1 June 2013, Long lupron, follistim/menopur, 11x5-day blasts, freeze all due to OHSS
8/23/13 FET 3x5-day blasts transferred, BFP 6dp5dt, betas 380 @ 10dp5dt, 810 @ 12dp5dt, 38,185 @ 22dp5dt, U/S 9/26 Twins!

Well I had a sono today and sadly lost one of our sweet babies. Only slightly larger sac since last week and no heartbeat. I'm so sad. :cry: Our other baby is right on track though so very thankful for that. Goodbye multiples board and best of luck to you all.

I am so sorry for your loss. I am glad you have a healthy bean growing and you will be in my thoughts and prayers. HUGS!

Hi all- I've been following this forum for a while but was just too afraid to post after our history of losses. We just found out the genders at a 17wk U/S appt, so suddenly it feels 'real'.

Name: Kari

Age: 43

Children: 3 angels

How long were you TTC: 3 years

Due Date: 6/14/14 (my Dr said she won't let twins go past 38wks, so that will be 6/1/14)

Boy(s) or Girl(s); 1 Boy & 1 Girl (Although we did PGD testing, they don't allow gender information to be included, so we just found out at 17wks.)

Reaction to finding out it was Multiples: We had an idea due to skyrocketing Betas, plus we did PGD (due to my age & our history of losses). We put back 2 healthy embryos. Ever since we started our fertility journey, I had this strong feeling that we would have twins. So when we finally had the 1st U/S confirmation, it just felt really right. I just said to my DH "here we go - this is it!"

Where do you live: Wash DC

Anything else: I'm just so excited to be here and to share in this journey with all of you. I get tears in my eyes every time I think of how blessed I feel. I know I've been through a lot to get here (as many of us have), but I never lost hope. I'm so excited to meet these two babies. OH - and I'm feeling very overwhelmed on selecting best choices for all the baby necessities. Glad to have the list on this forum of what you really need!
Me: 43 DH: 45
Natural PG: M/C 7/2011 :angel: Tri 5 & 15
IVF1, 5/2012: M/C 8wks :angel: Tri 11

How long were you TTC: For Rhys we weren't he was a pleasant surprise, the girls took 2 years exactly when I got my BFP

Anything else: Love being a mom to three wonderfully unique kiddos two with disabilities and I've become an advocate for parents going through the NICU setting up a local parents support group.
