    I can't believe you are almost 15 weeks! Time flies. My pants doesn't fit me any more... haha. I did some shopping for maternity cloths and it's fun!!

    18 to go, all righty!!! Do you feel baby's movement?


    UPDATE: Hi, ladies. I was busy b/c I went back to work this week... 1st day was tough, but 2nd day was better. I am feeling pretty good thesedays. All screening tests(including NT) were negative. I will have detail US tomorr.
    Congrats on all negative tests! That's great news!!! Good luck with work!! Hope it goes well now that you're back. If I get super hungry, I usually feel not so good fter I eat. Still throwing up, but only in the morning. I seem to be able to control the nausea throughout the day so I feel sick, but don't get sick. Yay!

    Thanks Rachel, Cakegal and Rhonda! We saw one heartbeat today, so it looks like Baby B is a vanishing twin. Baby A measures right at 7 weeks 1 day (10.2mm) and the heartbeat was 136, While I'm sad it won't be twins, I really can't be all that sad because I have one beautiful healthy baby and what more could I ask for? Thank you all for your support. I go back again next Wed for another u/s, but if all goes well I get to graduate to my ob/gyn! YAY!

    I'm going to try to attach the photos...

    Thanks! That's kind of how I feel. I'm not upset at all about it. It would have been nice, but that is apparently not God's plan for us and that's alright.

    So should I join a DD room yet? I've been putting it off, because, well, you know...

    I totally understand what you mean! This is something I continuously work through. But....if you believe things are really meant for a reason then joining a DD room won't make that any different! Enjoy and embrace your new motherhood!

    Thanks! Yup next week is my last u/s with me RE then I'll go through w/s withdrawals. I'll miss my weekly photos of the baby.

    DH has a herniated disc, so he's doing what he can, but he's laid up too. Our house is a bit messy, but better messy and me rested than spotless and me frazzled.

    Michelle, great news about baby A, sorry about baby B Having one healthy baby will keep you busy enough!!

    I know how you feel about the joining the DD room, and the signature, etc. I was hesitant also. As a matter of fact I just bought a pregnancy book today at 12 weeks! But take the plunge and enjoy.

    I can't believe you go to your ob/gyn already. I am just getting discharged this Friday form my re. But I'm not complaining, I got all those wonderful u/s. See if they will do a 3-d u/s for you, they are really neat!

    Glad to hear everyone else is doing well!! Good luck and

    OK I had a really weird day that ended well. here's what happened:

    During a bad day at work, I started bleeding. I was very upset, obviously. I got to the RE office and we did an ultrasound. The RE was quiet for about a minute or so and said she wasn't quiet because there was a problem, she just could get a good image. She then said, well here's a baby. It's Baby B. And it has a heart beat. We listened to it, and measured it at 6 weeks 1 day. She said she doesn't know why she couldn't see it yesterday.

    She went to look for Baby A which she found and its heartbeat was 150, up from 136 just yesterday. We're having TWINS!!!

    I couldn't comprehend it and I asked her about the bleeding and then she asked me how work was. When I told her about my bad day, she nodded her head. She said that while there is no medical proof that stress can cause problems in a pregnancy, she said she's experienced it first hand herself where she stressed during surgery at 9 weeks pregnant with one of her kids and the blood was running down her leg. Her baby was fine and went full term. She ordered me to leave work and stay at home until she says I can go back to work. She also said women with twins bleed more and that the combo of the stress and the twins could have been the reason I bleed.

    She did not find any blood on the u/s wand, she said my cervix was definitely closed and didn't see any tears anywhere. She expects spotting for the next few days, and while feels the amount of blood was more than she wanted to see (TMI - she checked out my panties to be sure), but it was not as bad as she's seen and it looks fine.

    SO, I called work and took myself off my show and I'm so relieved the BABIES are OK!!! She said she is still watching how Baby B does, but she thinks it will do well since it had a heartbeat and looks so much better now that she found it. lol I did make sure to tell my boss that it was the stress of today that caused the problem and that it isn't worth it. They're going to see if there is a position for me where I don't have to work directly on a show, but I am not holding much hope for that. Well, see...

    I'm going to see if I qualify for disability and I will not be going back to do another show while I am pregnant. The stress is not worth the money and our babies are the more important to me than a stupid job.

    I'm so relieved, but I'm exhausted.

    Well say a prayer for the babies. I'll keep you posted. My RE switched me to progesterone oil since the bleeding, just to make sure. I go back for another u/s on Monday.

    Holy cow, Michelle!!! That is AMAZING!! Yeah for Baby B, the little fighter baby!!!!

    Yes, babies are more important than work, and I hope you find a good solution for that. I'm sorry about the bleeding, but so happy the little one came around after all.

    Hi ladies...

    Just popping on to tell Michele I am soooooooooooooooooo excited!!!!! You know I was really hoping a few days ago that baby b would have had the HB and when I first read your email Wednesday, I was wondering if baby b was just behind and that may have been why you didnt hear the HB but I pushed that thought out of my mind and was just thrilled baby a is doing wonderful. Honey, I am so happy for you and just praying both those babies grow grow grow!

    Ok better get back to work. I'm so thrilled! That is just the news you needed to hear. God works in mysterious ways and we just need to keep that in mind.

    PRAISE BE!! Oh my gosh! Michele,you're having twins! I just can't even tell you how exciting and awesome this story is! Congratulations on your twins,Michele,absolute congratulations!

    You are right.Your babies are way more important than a job! That is EXACTLY why I quite my job just before they took my eggs. I knew the stress was bad,it would have been awful. I fully believe that I would not be where I am if I had not quit when I did! Either way,God has given you a wonderful gift and I know you'll do what's best for them Take it easy,rest and be happy!

    You know, I should have went ahead and posted what I wanted to yesterday and you would have been really laughing hard because I was right on the money!!! I was thinking there was always a possibility that Baby B was hiding or just a bit behind on growth. I really have always felt from the beginning that you were going to have twins. I am thrilled that it is working out that way for you dear!! I am so glad you are taking it easy going forward with work. Stress is not our friend during pregnancy!

    Thanks, Rachel! Well, we're lucky that my income was additional income any way. Our bills are covered thanks to a stock dividend I receive I was just looking to save money for the next few months for when I'm off work after the babies come. So these babies are first priority and I'm happy to do anything they need.

    Thank you! I slept SO well last night knowing I didn't have to go into work and deal with all the drama and stress there. I think this will be the best thing for the babies that I'm not allowed to go back.

    I know, right? I'll be curious to see if Baby B is the same when he/she comes into the world. So far, I;m thrilled it's such a fighter and has a flare for drama. lol

    Congrats on your ticker my dear. Looks like things are going very well for you, too!

    Thank you all for your support and prayers. I'm truly blessed to have you all in my life supporting me on this journey. Just praying both babies continue to grow and that the bleeding stops. I had some more last night and some spotting today, but my RE called this morning and said that is fine and it should be stopping soon. I'll let you know what my Monday u/s shows.

    Good luck to our sisters on the 2WW, stimming and the pregnant ladies too.

    Michelle, when is your due date? Have you joined a room yet? I'm not really active in mine as I feel more at home here..but I love stalking everyone in their rooms. I have to keep track of your DD so I can stalk you!!!

    I always felt like we should have a post-IVF pregnancy room that blends all and any DD for women who get preggers following IVF. We all get so close when we go through our cycles and then we are sent off to make new friends...like a kid moving to a new school. The women are great, but the bonds are not as strong. You know what I mean?

    I'm doing fine in my DD room, but I can't stay away from IVF Sisters because I want to be there for everyone to encourage them and support them through their struggles & eventually, their graduations. At the same time, I want to keep up with past IVF sisters that have graduated and learn of their deliveries, etc. It's hard to do because you have to try to remember everyone's DD's! LOL
