Okay, so I just had an ultrasound at 6 weeks, 5 days, and we saw two strong heartbeats. They're sharing a gestational sac, so the doctor told us that one of the embryos we transferred split, and we'll have identical twins.
How do I learn more about this? What's the best resources you've used to understand the needs and risks of this kind of pregnancy? I knew we had a risk of twins, transferring two embryos, but I wasn't expecting an embryo to split!
Me- 39 (turning 40 in April), TTC for the first time ever (since Jan 2015), low ovarian reserve
Married 3/14/14 to my wonderful wife, but her sperm count is rather low
TTC with frozen donor sperm and science
7 IUIs, 7 BFNs.
2 IVF attempts, both cancelled and converted to IUI, both BFNs.
Decided that my tired old ovaries are ready to retire.
Next step- reciprocal IVF, using my wife's eggs, my uterus!
fresh 5 day transfer (2 embryos) 4/17/17- BFP!
Identical twins "due" 1/2/17 (but anticipated arrival sometime December)
