So far so good. My second beta came in at 712. This is almost 3x the first value, which only needed to double so I’m feeling better now.

My progesterone is just on the border of being low, so I have to up that one. I test it again on Monday to see if it’s improved. Since they are sucking my blood out anyway, I’m getting another hcg done, just for fun.

I see the Dr on Tuesday for my first ever prenatal exam. Any suggestions of questions to ask? I’m going to bring a list because I know I’ll forget some in the excitement.

The picture is of the embryos before being sucked into the catheter, then let lose in me. Cute aren’t they? Click on the image to see all three.

Does anyone want to play the guess how many babies are growing? Consensus seems to be “at least 2”. I won’t know for a few more weeks and the ultrasound, but it’s pointing towards twins so I’ll be wrapping my head around that.

I think, in many ways, twins with DE & DS is not a bad thing. It means that they would each have a full blood relative. Sometimes that helps with the questions that could come up. Ideally, if twins, I’d love to have a girl and a boy. In reality, I just want healthy babies, no matter the gender or count.

twins would be nice but 1 is okay also, you will have a thousand and one questions to ask. Love the little picture on the right hand side of the screen, even at my age I don't think I have ever had the change to follow it throug day by day. Love you NS

OK so, let me get this straight - you're knocked up! First, hurrah and huge congrats on your efforts coming to fruition! Admittedly, it's been a while since I've popped in, so I'm a bit behind on recent news updates Selmada. Yes, I'd say girl/boy/(s), a healthy SOMETHING is a good thing. Congrats again!
