Re: Blessed with Children, Struggling for More week of November 26th

Thanks for the positive thoughts everyone- The doctor said it was subchorionic bleeding. I must be prone to this because I had bleeding into my 2nd trimester with my daughter too. I probably did too much on Sunday.

I am so curious about the heart rates. I found info online that said between 90-110 is normal for 6 weeks. Maybe she was worried about the bleed coupled with lower heart rates? Though, it seems that they aren't related. My RE said just not to worry-he has been great!!!

Kelsie- I am 38 and my daughter turns 6 in December. We are also worried about the age differences- plus if we do make it with the twins, my husband is worried that they will be closer to each other than to our daughter... Honestly- I think you have plenty of time and I am a little jealous of your age

I totally understand. I turn 30 the beginning of January, and I never wanted to be an "old" mom like my mom was. But here I am turning 30 and thinking well, I guess as long as I'm done by 40. I think if we have one more though, we will be done. I could be wrong. But I don't think I can handle this roller coaster for another 5 years and multiple losses.

Oh girl that is totally understandable. I was totally thinking about this the other day. I just always assumed I would "pop em" out close together like my sister and I.... if we wouldn't have adopted our son (which we weren't planning on) my daughter would still be an only child. I come from a family with 14 kids so that concept is so crazy to me. She will be four and half plus years apart from any potential sibling and I am still in shock some days that this is our story. I just turned 28 and I told my RE that I had at least ten more reproductive years... he was polite but implied I should be content if I can manage one more pregnancy. I just never thought I would be in my shoes.
(we have a Noah too by the way what a great name. I didn't get to pick it but I really glad he ended up with it.)

Unhappy Re: Blessed with Children, Struggling for More week of November 26th

Ladies I'm still around but today I've felt like crap off an on with cramping off an on most of the day. I'm suppose to do a HPT Friday but I'm really scared to afraid may get a BFN again but I've got to do so. Due to my RE nurse needs to know the results an if a BFN then I stop Prometrium an wait for AF. Lordy I hope things change for us soon.

I've been praying for all that has a BFP an the others that is doing other things.

Slyfoxy - Cramping can be a GREAT sign. When I had my BFN cycle in September I felt NOTHING in the 2ww. Everytime I have been pg, I have felt cramping in my 2ww. So I actually like it when I feel cramping.

Good luck on Friday!

Pregnancy mentioned:


I got my beta results today and they are high enough for me to get my first ultrasound on Friday. I think this baby is sticky!

Re: Blessed with Children, Struggling for More week of November 26th

Finally a little progress on what feels like the longest cycle of my life! I have 4 dominate follies that are finally showing some growth. I have a 14, a 13, and two 12s. I'll continue to stim through Saturday and then IUI Monday or Tuesday. The doc will be calling me in a bit with my lab results and we'll know for sure which day then. I'm so glad that it feels like this cycle is finally moving forward!

Kelsey - I love that your moving forward! Good luck!

Love4leon - when is your next ultrasound? I forget. I hope they put your mind at ease this time!

I put this up on another board about my beta. I know intellectually that my beta means nothing but you can't help but wonder when you see it spelled out.

Quote:
This baby is Baby E (and maybe EB??) -
14dp6FET (was not hatching though so I would call it a 5dt for all purposes) - 803
16dp6dFET - 2321 - exactly 48 hours later

Triplets were:
19dpIUI - 2283
21dpIUI - 5430

Baby D:
16dp3dt - 761
18dp3dt - 1868

Baby F (AKA DS):
14dp5dt (hatching) - 1014
16dp5dt - 1796

Baby I:
10dp5dFET (hatching) - 60
13dp5dFET - 163 (this baby didn't go much higher then this and was a chemical pregnancy).

So you can see why I am thinking twins based on my prior betas. It is a bit higher then baby F and D and that to me is a significant amount... even though DS started out higher and baby D started out lower.

Re: Blessed with Children, Struggling for More week of November 26th

Wow Jennifer- I think your numbers are higher than mine were and I have twins- my OB said that she knew it was going to be twins based on my betas.

My ultrasound is Tuesday- ugh! So far away, but we are very hopeful- I haven't had any more bleeding.
