Okay, so we had the first U/S today!!!!!! THERE ARE TWO in there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!! : I guess baby #1 has a 95 % chance of making it and baby #2 is 50/50 chance of making it as per the RE. Baby #1 heart rate was 113 and #2 was like half of that so he said he wasn't sure about #2 making it or not, but we will see. He said it may end up being a vanishing twin. I guess we just have to pray that everything will work out like it is ment to and I know it is totally out of my hands. We go again for the next U/S in two weeks on Thurs March 12th and we will see if #2 made it or not. I still am in shock and both DH and i still can't believe it is all real. It is just so weird to hear two heartbeats in there!!!

After 5 failed IUI's & 6 failed IVF's we threw in the towel w/ ART and then got a NATURAL miracle BFP! Hoping and praying it is finally our take home baby!  Mother to our twins boys in heaven -lost at 22.5wks on 6/20/09 and 1 other little angel in heaven.

Our Miracle has arrived... Caden James...

Congratz on the twins! Here's some good news to consider, you are SOOOOO early that it's really had to tell viability right now that there is alot of hope for baby B. Even my two were measuring a few days apart in the beginning and they are identical! Ultrasounds are fickle things and at 6 weeks you can't always see what you need to.

Make sure you start eating TONS of protein now. You need about 120g of protein a DAY minimum for a healthy twin pregnancy. This assures you a nice long gestation and strong healthy growing twins. Try not to let the Drs scare you. Twins are not a ticking time bomb waiting to go off, but the way Drs talk you would think they were! Ignore the possible complication, "need" for c-section, bedrest threats, PTL threats etc. Enjoy your pregnancy and what will be will be. I found the negativity to be the WORST part of twin pregnancy!

OH and join us in the parenting multiples board : Congratz and GROW babies! :

Wow!! Thanks everyone for all the congrats!!! I'm just keeping my fingers crossed right now and a little scared too. It will all be good though I've got faith!!!:

Firewomen- to answer your question about clomid... I was actually on my first cycle of injectables (gonal F). I'd already done 3 cycles of clomid with 2 IUI's that didn't work.

fryebloom - So good to hear from someone else who has already gone through it. We actually have two sets of friends that just had twins this year so I know I will get tons of advice from them as well (and hopefully some clothes too!! Already starting to think about saving money and how we should have gotten the bigger car - haha). This might be a dumb question but how do you know how much 120g of protein? I guess i don't even know how much one chicken breast is. I love chicken so that is good that you said that. It is one of the few things that I feel that I can actually stomach right now. I'll have to check out the multiple board maybe in two weeks when I know it is legit!

After 5 failed IUI's & 6 failed IVF's we threw in the towel w/ ART and then got a NATURAL miracle BFP! Hoping and praying it is finally our take home baby!  Mother to our twins boys in heaven -lost at 22.5wks on 6/20/09 and 1 other little angel in heaven.

Our Miracle has arrived... Caden James...

Beyond meat, stock up on eggs (I like to keep hard boiled eggs around as snacks and eat 2 a day when pregnant), and cottage cheese.

It's total protein, which includes the protein found in bread, rice and cereal. I ate 3 eggs for breakfast every morning, protein shakes for snacks, yogurt, cottage cheese is super high in protein. The trick is eat your protein first, then your fruits and vegetables and then carbs. Put some hummus on your crackers, PB (or soy or sunflower butter) on your bread, snack on almonds. Blue diamond has really yummy almond chips now, yum!

Ah injectables, the twin maker . With the excepton of the identicals I know, most of the multiples moms I know got theirs with injectables or IVF. I figured when you mentioned your RE that you probably had some treatment.

I'm keeping you and your LOs in my thoughts!

Huck -Thanks for the chart, it's very helpful!!!

fyrebloom - Thanks for the info! I just made about a dozen hard boiled eggs today to start eating thanks Pandme for that idea. I've never really been one that normally eats the yoke b/c I know that is usually where the cholesterol is in an egg and have had troubles with that in the past. I wonder if I don't eat that if I'm missing out on the best part of the protein??? I've actually been eating toast and natural Skippy P.B. lately as my savior when I'm really feeling nauseous so that is good. Those almond chips sound good, I'll have to look for them in the store.

Do you know any mothers that have multiples from injections that are identical? If everything works out, I'd assume that we would end up having fraternal twins since they were watching 3 eggs and had assumed we would at least get one when I triggered. I was thinking today that we actually could have gotten one with our IUI and then gotten another on our own after IUI b/c we DTD several nights after. Who knows.

After 5 failed IUI's & 6 failed IVF's we threw in the towel w/ ART and then got a NATURAL miracle BFP! Hoping and praying it is finally our take home baby!  Mother to our twins boys in heaven -lost at 22.5wks on 6/20/09 and 1 other little angel in heaven.

Most Protein is in the egg white. Choline in yolk, good for baby brain development.
