Just got back from my 2nd US. We heard both heartbeats! The smaller one was 125 and the bigger one was 135. One is measuring 6 weeks 6 days and the other is 7 weeks 2 days. I am 7 weeks 1 day right now.
I have always heard that your chance for miscarriage goes down significantly after you hear heartbeats so I'm feeling a bit better, although I know we are not out of the woods yet.
I am really starting to suffer from "all day" sickness now. Bad headaches. I go back on 1/18 for my final US and if everything is good they will release me to my OB.View Thread
Hey Danielle. I was 5 weeks 5 days at my first US and we saw the sacks and yolk sacks. I don't think the doc even tried to find heartbeats at that time but I have heard where some people have heard their babies heartbeats that early. It wouldn't hurt to call to ask, just for peace of mind.View Thread
I am due in August. I'm just about 7 weeks along so it's still very early.
My IVF advice is to try to stay positive but realistic and educate yourself as much as you can about the process and different options. Going into this 3rd round we knew it was going to be our last no matter what the outcome. We met with the doctor and discussed what could be done differently this time. I also insisted on assisted hatching. Of course we will never know what did the trick but it did make me feel like we did all we could do.
How have you been feeling? I haven't really been sick Just a general crappy feeling. I'm just wondering because I keep reading that the "morning sickness" is much worse when your carrying twins...View Thread
