Jme, thats awesome no red flags! Is this routine bloodwork they do for everyone? And the bloodwork that told you you had Y chromosome, is that a normal test or do you have to request it? What is it called? And how early can you get it? Sry so many questions but so curious.

It might be because I am 35 or older, but I was given the Verifi test. It tests for genetic disorders and can test for gender (though it seems it's only accurate if you have two girls or if you have a singleton). There is another test that some ladies take called the MaterniT21, but I'm less familiar with the specifics of that. I didn't ask for it, she just told me it was an option, so I took it (I've met my deductible, so why not?). Also, she told me it can be given any time after 10 weeks, which blew my mind :)

So I just got back from my doctors appt. Both babies are measuring right on time but baby A's heartbeats is only 99 while baby B's is 149. Doctor didnt seem concerned but it just seems like its a big difference. Was it like this for anyone else? We have another US set in two weeks and he said he could tell me for sure (about 95%) if baby A will make it. It scares me that he couldnt tell me then.


Im so sorry to hear that you are having to worry about the baby:( - I really hope everything turns out ok. What were the measurements of the two babies? Did they measure pretty close in size? Finger crossed everything turns out ok at the next scan.

The maternit21 and the verifi are the same test, just by different companies. Basically they are blood tests that measure cell free fetal DNA in the mother's blood stream. That way they can detect genetic problems and also can detect sex chromosomes. Insurance is more likely to cover it if you are over 35 or have a high risk for genetic anomalies based on family history.

I see. Not sure it'll be covered since I don't believe I fall in either categories. They did ask me at my initial visit if I want genetic testing and I said yes. It's prolly not the same but at least some will be tested.

And both babies measured 7w2d, right on time. I think if baby A was smaller I would worry a little less bcus it would seem to make sense. I just don't understand how two babies, measuring the exact same, have a difference of 50 beats. Especially with it appearing baby A looks more formed than baby B. My next scan is the 20th so I'm KMFX. We shall see.

Hi everyone, Tiffne told me about this board, and I would like to join you all! I am 7 weeks 6 days pregnant with twins, my IVF superheroes :) We transferred two embys and they both took!
Anyway, I look forward to catching up on all of your stories and having some fellow future twin mommies to chat with. Right now I am trying to fend off the constant "morning" sickness and waiting for my final ultrasound with the IVF clinic next Monday before I get handed off to an ob/gyn.

Welcome amazinglyamy! I, too, have IVF miracles. We transferred two embryos (the only two out of nine that made it to day 3 transfer) and both took. I am currently 15 weeks and 2 days, but I look bigger than a friend of mine who is two months ahead of me. That makes me nervous! Oh well... I haven't gained much weight, just have a belly.

Here is a topic for my twin mommas. I keep seeing people who are buying/ going for the forever car seat that goes from infant until booster seat age. This seems great, but it doesn't have a removable bucket seat to cart around babies when they are little. People keep saying they will baby wear when eating and shopping, etc. But, with two, I can't even imagine this as an option. I mean, I like the idea of saving money and not having to get an infant seat, but not having the removable bucket/pumpkin seat scares the crap out of me. Anyone attempting to skip the infant seat?
