About Me: Female, 42, Houston, TX, member since Jun 2010
Update 1/13: First appt with OB went perfectly. Heard heartbeats. About same as last time... low 150s. Starting iron supplement and genetic testing was all negative. YAY! Monthly appointments for now.
Update 1/6: Another perfect US, except that babies didn't want to sit still long enough for a photo. Got to see perfect little legs! Baby A had heartbeat of 150 and Baby B was 158. Both still measuring one day apart. RE released me. YAY! Now on to my OB for 2nd trimester!
Update 12/23: Great US today. Baby A had heartbeat of 171 and Baby B was 165. Both measuring well. Got to see hands and a tiny head and one even started moving. Next US in two weeks then cleared to OB.
Update 12/10: Had first US today. We found out we were having TWINS! My 2 year old has been saying for weeks now that she would have a brother AND a sister. She was right! We saw two strong heartbeats and all is well. Freaking out a little and I'm sure the overwhelmed part will hit soon, but for now just so very thankful for two healthy babies!
Update 12/5: Second round of BW was 3664. Doc says it could be twins. Not sure how I feel about that. First US is Tuesday, 12/10. Just want to see a heartbeat and confirm everything is on track.
Update 11/25: BFP on 14dp5dt. Beta was 1001. Second round of blood work for beta is today. Anxiously awaiting to confirm everything is moving along. Consultant with RE on Wednesday to talk about the next 5 weeks and schedule first US. Can't wait to see a flicker!
Update 11/11: We are starting this journey again three years later. So blessed with our sweet Annabelle who has been the perfect baby and now toddler. Praying for a repeat! November 8 was FET. Transferred two perfect blasts. Cramped on 1dp which did not happen the first time. Cramped a little on 2dp. Now on to day 3 and nothing. Last time I had implantation bleeding on 3dp and I cannot help but compare. Literally going to make myself crazy! Just praying for calmed nerves these next 12 days.
Update 2/14: Annabelle Grace was born at 8:05 a.m. weighing 5lbs 12 ozs and 19 ins. She is PERFECT!
Update 2/3: FAD was perfect today. Lots of good movement with a string heartbeat and one major contraction. next appointment is Monday. 10 days until delivery.
Update 1/31: FULL TERM TODAY. Thank the Lord. We are good to go anytime now. Biophysical test was perfect: 8 of 8. YAY Baby! But FAD was worthless as baby decided to take a little nap. We're good for 4 more days but hoping to make it to the 14th.
Update 1/28: FAD was perfect. Strong HB. Bio test on Monday to check progress.
Update 1/24: Bit of a scare. Baby dropped to 23rd percentile. Put on bed rest today and scheduled for 3 and 4 day appointments for the duration. Really nervous but trusting that all will be fine.
Update 1/3: Baby is 4lb 4oz and 46th percentile. Still looking good. Scheduled c-section on February 14th.
Update 12/16: Baby is 3lb 4 oz and 48th percentile. All looks well. Gained 6 pounds since last visit; 12 pounds total. YIKES. Need to slow that down. Set for two week appointments now!
Update 11/22: Baby is 2 lbs, 1 oz and 14 inches long. Schedule delivery February 14. Heartbeat leveling out at 135. Measurements were perfect. Passed Glucose test. Beautiful new pics!
Update 11/13: Husband felt baby for first time!
Update 10/25: OB appt went well. One pound weight gain overall. HB still in 140s. Next appointment is 11/22 for US and glucose test.
Update 10/4: Got the call that all genetic testing came back negative. No further testing recommended. Thank the Lord!
Update 9/27: Anatomy u/s. All is well. Saw baby and a 3D photo. Baby is 9 ounces and 6 inches. Decided to wait on sex so it's sealed in an envelope and safely tucked away... somewhere.
Update 9/13: Finally picked up baby's heartbeat and movement on home doppler. Now the wait between appointments won't be so long! 11 more days til I see my little love bug. It's been almost two months.
Update 8/25: Heard the heartbeat for the first time. Music to my ears. Beating strong. All is well. NT scan looked great. Next appointment is 9/27
Update 8/9: NT scan. Results in another week. Got a beautiful new pic. Actually looks like a tiny human now. So sweet. I'm in LOVE.
Update 7/28: Met our new OB today. She was fabulous. Very thorough and also sensitive to all we'd been through. Talked through the pregnancy and got to see my beautiful little one again on the big screen. Perfection! NT scan in two weeks; next OB appt in four.
Update 7/19: 9 week u/s showed tiny arms waving around and a heartbeat fluttering at 175 bpm. New best day EVER!
Update 7/7: Saw a beautiful little heart today just flickering away at 140 bpm. Best day EVER!
Update 6/30: Got beta from Monday's u/s. 17000+. Perhaps I should stop stressing so much... can't help it though!
Update 6/28: First u/s. Totally uneventful. Measured 5w6d. Didn't see much. Next appt is 7/7
Update 6/21: Beta 2000. 1st ultrasound is 6/28
Update 6/18: BFP! Beta is 600.
Update 6/13: hpt is POSITIVE. First ever!
