Sorry had to eat - was starving after that! All good two separate sacks with foetal poles, two magical heartbeats I could see fluttering. Still very new heartbeats (117 and 100) so going back for another scan next week to check growth etc.

Over the moon happy! Lol oh and still lots of swollen follicles from the last cycle.
Those with nausea she's got me on b6 (pyridoxine) three times a day as a more natural assistance.
OB is lovely, she does do vaginal twins, but was happy that my birth plan is to do whatever is best for the babies. Dh is beside himself, it's getting real now
Will sort pics when I work it out xxxx

me 40, DH 40, one (TTC since November 2012) At least one confirmed chem.Ivf #1 march 2014 - 6 day 6 blasts, bfn, 4 frosties. Ivf #2 may, cancelled, Ivf #3 July two transferred, 3 frosties... BFP! Scan at 6+4 wks - twins!! Feeling more blessed than words!

Adie - I'm glad everyone reminded you about spotting :-) Please also remember that suppositories can irratate you, so if you have a little bit of blood after starting them don't freak out....!!!!

AAM - Cervix down to 1cm which is where the cerclage is at. I think that's all that's holding them in now. Let's just all hope and pray it holds for at least another 4 weeks.

But, maybe B looks better? There may be less fluid, by its hard to tell for sure. It's still pretty bad. A continues to look great. If he'd jut quit kicking my cervix, it might be alright.

They are so cute! I really hope that they can keep that cerclage working for at least 4-5 more weeks. Are you on bedrest? Even though it's a maybe I am happy to hear slightly positive news about baby B. The waiting game must be so hard.

Xerxella, they are gorgeous. Are they di/di? Thinking good thoughts for you.

Chuord, yay! I knew it! More twinsies! Sorry about the morning sickness, glad you are finding what works. Can't wait to hear updates.

Monkeyscience, how are you mama? So close!

Hi everyone! Trying to learn tapatalk, the new mobile forums are too weird.

Still two more weeks until my scan and OB appointment. Time seems frozen.

I'm having so much round ligament pain on the left where baby A is, the bigger one. Ugh.

Thanks everyone!!!!

Xerxella - that's really encouraging about baby b - omg they are so adorable!! Re cerclage, did they give you any advice on how to help it? Are you able to do bed rest as alivewithyou said or are you still working? Maybe you could take some time off? Excuse the hyper, rising 'care even more than normal about everything' hormones are beyond my control!
Milk - how are you going? When's next check up?
So ladies can you please refresh me, who has a scan when?
Afm - totally in love at this point, dh is talking larger house lol...

AAM - I'm on bedrest at home. The docs have no further advice. They think they've done all they can and now either the cerclage will hold or it won't.
@Milk8shake - Isn't your next u/s tomorrow? If so, good luck!!!
@chuord - very exciting stuff! When's your next ultrasound?

@chuord Hooray!!!!! I'm so excited and happy for you. Stick babies!!!
@adiejan Yay!! When do you have your counting scan?
@Xerxella Awwwwwwww Your babies just melted my heart! So adorable! I'm glad your little fighter seems to be doing better. I hope the trend continues!!!!

AFM - I had my first detailed scan today with the perinatologist. We're having 2 boys! Also, he said that my cervix is longer than average which floored me. I had the same problem xerxella is having with my last twins and was not expecting good news this time either. I'm at over 5 cm right now and by this point last time, I was hovering around 2 and shrinking. I wish I could somehow transfer some of my extra length to you, xerxella! My sacs have caught up and are no longer measuring small. Babies were measuring right on time.

I do have pictures, but they're in the other room and so I'll have to upload them tomorrow. They're looking like babies and not jelly beans anymore.

Me: 33 PCOS Him: 33 vericocele
13 long years of TTC using various methods before the twins finally came - Too much history to list
IVF #1 11 weeks
IVF #2 Liam and Maisie (now 3 years old)
IVF #3 BFN and no frosties
IVF #4 BFP!!!! Aedric and Harold 1/13/15

Tracy - anything you need but I have a feeling your baby is Mary poppins perfect 'practically perfect in every way' lol but I get the feeling everyone's baby is perfect, and that milk and xerxella will get there - those babies are determined to stay xxx
Lol but then I might just be slightly hopped up on fake and real hormones and going slowly hippy!
It's hard to focus when I'm just so grateful for my blessing (and zofran!)

Thanks kewpie!!! Wow bet that scan was mind blowing! Congrats on having two little boys, so now do you start thinking on names? Congrats on the great cervix length!
What's the general thoughts on finding out the sex? Are we all just hanging to find out or are some of you going to wait? I think if it was one I'd be tempted to wait, but with two it somehow feels like I'll be more organised if I know...

FML! I've had the week from hell, and I accidentally deleted all my replies. I'll have to come back and redo.
Anyway, my scan is tomorrow (3.30pm) and I am super, super, SUPER nervous. On top of that, things at work are AWFUL and I really just want to throw it in. I don't know if it's hormones or stress, but I'm an emotional wreck. The slightest thing has me on the verge of tears.
