The exhaustion is a little worse, but probably only cause I have 2 two year olds where last time I could sleep all I wanted.

The sacs were measuring 4 and 5 days behind, so that has me a bit nervous. Other than that, everything's ok for now. The spotting has been away for 2 weeks now.
We are going to have our babies at the same time! I'm 9 weeks and 4 days. I too have an ultrasound tomorrow. Oops my ultrasound is on Wednesday.

@Xerxella
Sometimes I think I'm feeling better. I am able to drink more water these last couple of days. I have major fatigue. No more going at 20mph. Laundry sits in the dryer for a couple of hours and the dish washer is sometimes not ran till in the morning. I feel very sluggish.
I actually did call MaterniT21 and they did not have all of the locations for a blood draw bit gave me some leads so I have been calling around. I may have found one ( a lab) right next to my ultrasound appointment Wednesday. If so hopefully I can get my doctor( ob) to send an lab order and I can have it done the same day as it is 2 hours away from where we live. And yes I know about the age thing though the materni does not factor in age. Most every other test does. I don't think I'm going to stress getting tests as you said my donor is so young. I'd like the MaterniT test but if it does. Not work out to have it then I just won't stress it. Especially if everything is looking good. Thanks for checking in. I'm so excited for you to get your results back and we can all move on and fully celebrate that you are having two healthy twins

Let me see if I can find the study. Here you go:

My gestational sacs caught up and everything looked normal as of the 11 week ultrasound and beyond.

Good luck at your ultrasound tomorrow!!! Let us know how it goes.

That's good to know! Just the sacs were behind, the babies and HBs were right where they should have been. I've been feeling really nervous about tomorrow, so I whipped out the doppler even though it's early. I found one of the babies with a nice galloping HB. I couldn't find the other, but it is early. I was really surprised when i found the first one. I couldn't find my last set until I was around 12 weeks. My u/s isn't until tomorrow afternoon, so it will be late when I post, but I will update once I know.

@kewpie80 - How do you know you're finding 2 heartbeats? I never know if it's the same heartbeat or different ones

With my last set, their HBs were very different rates, so I could tell. They had about a 20-30 beat per minute difference. Also, my boy was very low and my girl was very high. It got easier as they grew. This time, their HBs are within 5 beats of each other, so i have no idea how I will tell this time until they get bigger...and even then....

@kewpie80 - SO?????? How'd the u/s go? And, feel free to post pictures...
monkeyscience's Avatar monkeyscience 08:15 AM 07-15-2014
I think her ultrasound is not till this afternoon. So we'll have to wait longer. It's another ultrasound-y week for this thread - Kewpie today, Tracy tomorrow, and me the next day. And maybe boots? Or did she just have one? I read it yesterday and now I can't remember.

P.S. X, I'll add you to the roster when I get on my desktop again.

Kewpie and Tracy, are you ready to be added yet?
alivewithyou's Avatar alivewithyou 10:09 AM 07-15-2014
I also have an ultrasound this afternoon.

Yep, my u/s isn't for another 2.5 hours. You can add me to the roster. EDD Feb 17 (Babies #3 and #4 )

It is indeed! I always try to get a morning appt for that reason. They were booked up today. I just noticed you're in SLC. I'm in Springville, just south of Provo. My appt today is in Murray, though, so i'll be up in your neck of the woods.
Xerxella's Avatar Xerxella 01:04 PM 07-15-2014
UGH!!!! I hate the waiting! I'm looking forward to both your updates! @alivewithyou and @kewpie80

Wow! I didn't know you were so close. I work in taylorsville but my appointment is at Riverton hospital. Do you go to the big IHC hospital in Murray?

@Xerxella : I have a signature.. and I am 7 weeks 6 days today. Hoping my baby still measures a couple days ahead though.

@alivewithyou - Sorry! I realized almost immediately that you were probably posting from your phone, so your signature wasn't showing up.

Oh! I thought you just couldn't see them on phones. I didn't know they don't post from phones.

Okay ladies...... Stalking and waiting for ultrasound d results. It's funny but mine is not till 2 tomorrow either and it is 2 hours away.
kewpie80's Avatar kewpie80 04:54 PM 07-15-2014
They're looking good. One had a HB at 177 and the other was low 180s. She said babies are measuring right on time. Sacs are still small, but she said not to worry about it.

Okay, I guess I should make it official. I think my due date is February 7 th but most likely the end of January as to avoid uterine rupture.

I go to the Utah fertility clinic in Pleasant Grove. I just had to go to their office in Murray today cause my dr was there this whole week.

Good job making those babies grow mama!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
alivewithyou's Avatar alivewithyou 05:50 PM 07-15-2014
@kewpie80 : Glad to hear your appointment went so well! Your babies are looking great.

Here is my little sour patch kid (haha):


Heartbeat= 165 and measuring perfectly at 7 week 6 days.

I did find out my uterus is slightly titled back since they couldn't get a very good picture with the abdominal ultrasound. Thought that was interesting..

I have been so sick today so this just makes me happy to see that it's not for nothing.
tracyamber's Avatar tracyamber 09:23 PM 07-15-2014
@alivewithyou
Good job mama!!! Glad everything looks great. Btw, I have a tilted uterus also. It just makes things interesting, no big deal.
Xerxella's Avatar Xerxella 07:19 AM 07-16-2014
@alivewithyou & @kewpie80 - Great job guys!!!!! What a relief to have another ultrasound where everybody's measuring right on time!

@tracyamber - Wow! Another ultrasound today! It's a busy time around here. Glad to hear it! I'll be stalking you today awaiting your results!
monkeyscience's Avatar monkeyscience 09:26 AM 07-16-2014
Yay for good ultrasounds! Alive, I think I must have mixed you and boots up in my mind - I looked later, and she hasn't posted recently about an upcoming ultrasound.

AFM, impatiently waiting for tomorrow. At least I have a morning appointment!
alivewithyou's Avatar alivewithyou 01:17 PM 07-16-2014
Thinking of you @tracyamber today. Best of luck!

@Monkey sciencd: good luck tomorrow! Smart thinking with a morning appointment.

My next appointment isn't until August 12th.. And no ultrasound until I'm 19 weeks now. Going to be a very long wait.
monkeyscience's Avatar monkeyscience 02:24 PM 07-16-2014
Okay, Xerxella and tracy - added you to the roster. Alive, kewpie, boots - I'm ready to add you all whenever you're ready to be added. Just give me an EDD, and anything else you'd like included on the roster.

Tracy, is there anything else you want to add to your blurb? Also, why is there concern about uterine rupture? Did that happen with your ds? Hoping to hear about your ultrasound soon, too!

Yeah, this is a big ultrasound week! 4 ultrasounds, plus X getting back her MaterniT21 test results. I really only care about my ultrasound because I want to find out the sex - I expect the cyst to be fine. Just for that, I'll probably get some unexpected surprise. But for me, I'm 110% sure this baby is alive and growing, due to all the crazy kicking. You'll all get there, and with all of the twins, probably some of you pretty soon!
monkeyscience's Avatar monkeyscience 02:27 PM 07-16-2014
Kewpie - Wow, a lot of my family is buried in Springville! (I hope that doesn't sound too morbid.) My grandma spent a lot of her growing up years there. Most of my extended family lives not too far from you.
iixivboots's Avatar iixivboots 06:40 PM 07-16-2014
Go ahead and add me for "early february" EDD is 2/15 but no way I'll make it with twinsies.

First OB appointment tomorrow, have "graduated" from fertility clinic. Am 9 weeks. Sofa King tired, you guys. Not too much m/s but so easy to overdo it with toddler activities.
Not sure when my next ultrasound is, will find out tomorrow.
GP labs came back low vitamin D again, ugh. I just can't seem to keep it up. I will find out how much to take tomorrow, I guess, in addition to prenatal. Glad the other twin mamas and everyone else is doing well. More later.

tracyamber's Avatar tracyamber 07:15 PM 07-16-2014
Okay ladies, I'm tired. It was a two hour each way with a toddler. He won't go to sleep until 10. No break for mama tonight.
Thanks for thinking of me guys!!!!!
The ultrasound went well. Baby was really moving and it was so cute to see his little arm and fingers. They are no longer webbed! He/ she is measuring a bit further than 9 weeks and 5 days. I think just a day more. And the heartbeat was pretty average / normal,165!
I'm officially done with my clinic. I already had an OB appointment last week. They said" it's a little early to hear the heartbeat" whatever! I have already heard the heartbeat twice now. I guess fertility clinics have a bit more advance technology.
I just don't feel like posting a picture. I can't even remember how I did it the first time from my pad.
@monkeyscience will be thinking of you tomorrow.
And let me think of a blurb. I have not really even looked at the first page of this thread to know what exactly to say. Sorry to be a pain. Thanks for being thread keeper.
Oh, and the uterine rupture is cause I have had 16 - sections already... Just kidding no but I had benign tumors removed in which I had 16 incisions made in my uterus . 17 including my c-section in 2011.
