Pregnant after IF

Quadruplets

After going through fertility treatments for five cycles, we have success! :-)

The only problem is that it sounds like perhaps too much success as at my first ultrasound yesterday, they saw four! Is anyone else out there pregnant with so many -- or been pregnant with so many?

I'm completely overwhelmed...
TTC since 4/2009 (with RE since 8/10) Got pregnant on our own 12/09. MC 3/2010 IUI #1 & 2 unsuccessful (Sept & Oct 2010) IVF #1 9 follicles, 5 eggs, 4 fertilized, 4 transferred. Chemical pregnancy. Bad news received Thanksgiving 2010. IUI #3 Chemical pregnancy (12/2010 double IUI) IUI #4 Success! (2/7/2011 & 2/8/2011 double IUI) ultrasound 3/8/2011 determined there are four ultrasound 3/17/2011 showed one not developing so we're down to 3 unltrasound 3/23/2011 showed Baby C had stopped developing so we're at twins. Same ultrasound showed good measurement and heartbeats for babies A and B. Due date is Oct. 31, 2011 (for singleton so twins will probably be earlier) BabyFetus Ticker

    You are pretty far along based on your siggie procedure dates, so I assume you've already seen heartbeats.  Did this BFP result from the IUI in december?

    You may also want to post on the multiples board because I know there are a few quad moms on their.

    Wow!  Congratulations (x 4)!!!!  Big Smile

    I think your feelings are totally normal!!  We were somewhat overwhelmed with twins, so I can't imagine how you're feeling... 

    Another great place to check out is the Multiples board.  There may be some quad MoMs over there, too!  Good Luck to you!!

    The last double IUI was Feb. 7 & 8. us yesterday just showed sacs -- next week is heartbeats. We're at just over six weeks.

    Where is the glossary for terms? I thought it used to be listed in the left but somehow I'm missing it. Need to fix my signature after finding it.

    Wow.  How many follies did you have at your IUI's?!  Have you seen all their heartbeats or are you saying they saw 4 sacs at your u/s?  I'm guessing you're about 6-6.5 weeks based on your siggy?  I would definitely go over to the Multiples board for advice.

    Wow that must have been quite a shock!  Congrats and H&H 9 mos to you!  I'm sure the shock will subside, but I think it is completely normal to be overwhelmed at first.

    The last u/s before the IUIs showed three mature follies but many more (around 5/6) that were on the verge. I am just under 6.5 weeks along. I didn't see any heartbeats yet...hoping for that at the next u/s on Thursday!

    I will find the multiples board. Thanks for the suggestion. :-)

    WOW! Congrats! I've got 3 as you can see...that was a complete shock, I don't know what my reaction would be if there were four! I def. recommend the Multiples board as well, they are very supportive and maybe you'll find a Quad MoM on their! :)
