twins..happy AND freaking out!

Postby nicann2012 » Thu Sep 12, 2013 5:31 am

Went through IVF and transfered 2 frozen embryos on Aug 30.
Just got my beta test results and my HCG levels were 3,193...most likely twins!

frankly im freaking out. but im also excited cos we want about 3-4 kids.
but im having one anxious episode followed by one ecstatic episode..one after another!!

im not sure how to feel. i feel so bad for even feeling bad!
any of you felt this way too?

Congratulations on your :bfp: !! definitely high numbers. I always had high numbers and have been pregnant with twins twice. Its totally normal to feel happy and nervous at the same time but once it sinks in, you'll get excited.

what dpo was your beta done? until you have your u/s there's still a chance its a singleton. :wink:

Congrats!!

I agree with Cathy that high betas don't necessarily mean twins, although since you transferred 2 it's fairly likely they both stuck. If it is twins, it's scary and exciting at the same time but you'll do great!

Congrats! Great beta and probably a good chance you've got two in there :D

I think you'll probably go back and forth between "this is awesome!" and "how do we do this?!?" until your twins are at least 18 years old! Mine are almost 2 and some days it's still like "there are TWO OF YOU and one of me!!!" hehe But it's an amazing experience!!

After worrying (and crying..again!) over the looming fear of financial burdens...we cant help but giggle over the fact that we'll have two babies who'll grow up to always have each other!
im an only child and i have always been determined not to let my children feel so alone, especially when losing a parent.
and this is indeed an answer to that prayer :)

so, we're just gonna take it easy and embrace the idea that we could very likely have twins while we wait for the scan to be sure
thanks ladies !!

I just wanted to say congrats on your twins. Just know that somehow it all works out. I love my twins so much and I'm so thankful that I was chosen to get to experience this. It truly is a blessing and the most amazing thing to watch two human beings be so close.
