Update to my friend who just had twins — The Bump
TTC after 35

Update to my friend who just had twins

I posted earlier this month about my friend who had twins 7 weeks early. I didn't know she was pg until she was like 19 weeks when she posted on FB. I sooo wanted to know if she had treatment since that is where my mind goes when I hear multiples. I knew it was rude to come out and ask so instead, I emailed her that I was going to do IVF (thinking she'd tell me if she did as well).  She responded that she did IUI! I knew it! Anyway, I am going to meet up with her tomorrow afternoon for coffee to talk about all of it.  I'm so curious to hear about her journey.

  • DH said I HAD to bring a gift when I see her. I'm kind of over gifts for 2nd babies but I succumbed to peer pressure. There was NO WAY I was going to buy baby clothes in my crazy state of mind. I opted for the gift card I found at CVS for Gymboree.  The cashier probably thought I was nuts: my order was baby card, gift card to baby store, pantyliners and 2 bottles of pre natal vitamins!

    BTW: CVS has buy 1 get 1 free of the store brand prenatals.. Good deal!

  • HA! The cashier either thinks you're nuts or very confused about the way things work.

    I need to get a gift for my neighbors twin girls, but I can't make myself go shopping for baby clothes, either. A gift card is a great idea. 

     

    Me = 38, Husband = 31. TTC since 1/10. M/C at 8 wks 5/10. Started trying again 9/10. All tests normal: AMH/MIS, FSH, HSG, SA. Estradoil high. 6/20/11 - Clomid+Ovidrel+IUI#1=BFN. 7/17/11 - Clomid+IUI#2=BFN. 2 natural cycles = BFN. 10/6/11 - Clomid+Ovidrel+IUI#3=BFN. 10/31/11 - Clomid+Ovidrel+IUI#4 = BFN. 11/26/11 - Follistim+Ovidrel+IUI#5 = BFN. IVF#1 - Menopur+Follistim. 2 ET 5/11/12 = BFN.
  • I never found It rude when I was asked how I came to be pregnant with triplets. I gladly shared. I think some find the way the question is worded rude. Like, if you asked 'are they natural?' Which I never found rude because I know what they are asking but some people do find It rude.

    McIrish,

    You should have thrown in a bottle of booze to really confuse the clerk.
