1st Ultrasound

After holding my breath all morning with nerves, I am so happy to tell you girls that we saw 2 gestational sacs and yolks!  I am so happy right now but I know it can go either way from here with our history.  But we never had both embryos take before so we are both pretty excited right now and are trying to contain ourselves.  I had a feeling that we either had a really strong singleton or possibly both with the way I have been feeling lately.  One was smaller than the other but the doctor said both looked great and measured where they need to be right now and said one might have implanted later than the other.  Waiting for my phone call with my hcg and progesterone levels and find out when we go back for 2nd ultrasound.  Today, I am pregnant with twins.  Now I can breath a little until the next ultrasound...

    IVF #3: ER 12/1 and only 2 retrieved.  1 fertilized with ICSI.  Was planning on transferring one fresh and one frozen....fresh was only 14 cells at day 5...CANCELLED and devastated due to 5cm blood filled cyst in ovary and blood in uterus.
