Pregnant after 35

Hello!

Long time resident of TTC>35.  I finally got my BFP after our first IVF cycle.  I was starting to think that those pregnancy tests didn't work.

We had our first ultrasound this morning.  I wanted to wait to introduce myself until after we saw a heartbeat.  My RE let out a really excited squeak as soon as the image showed up on the screen - TWINS!!!  Two beautiful little heartbeats - 109 and 115.  Both babies look and measure healthy.  We are so excited, nervous, joyful, blessed, overwhelmed! 

So far, I've had a few symptoms - skin breaking out, sore breasts, morning sickness, frequent urination.  I'm sure more will show up as I move along. 

Glad to be here and look forward to getting to know everyone.  :)
