Baby Update

Mickey Mouse is in my uterus!  :-)

Here's the scoop.  Three sacs are still growing but only two have live babies.  So, at this point we have twins, but my body thinks there are three since the sac is still getting bigger.  Evidently little jelly bean #3 quit growing but jelly beans #1 & 2 are keeping the sac going. 

Jelly Bean #1- CRL 9.1mm, GS 27.7mm, HR= 125bpm  (6wk 6days)
Jelly Bean #2- CRL 12.7mm, GS 23.8mm, HR= 144bpm (7wk 4days)
Today I am officially 7weeks 3days pregnant. 

Sac 1 is very odd shaped. . . for a minute, Dr Awesome thought we had four sacs now.  Then he realized it was one odd shaped sac.  He searched all over for a hidden identical twin in that sac, but only found the one baby.

This image doesn't show it well, but Jelly Bean #1 & #2 are pretty close in size and both are measuring correctly for this stage.

Ultrasound #2

Jan. 22, 2013.  This was suppose to be our first scan.  6 weeks 3 days.
Baby A isn't looking great- 8.2 mm, no heartbeat visible yet.
Baby B looks good, GS 14.2mm CRL 6.2mm HR= 125.
Baby C iffy, GS 17.2mm, CRL 4.2mm, HR= 111.
Next scan on Wednesday, Jan. 30th.

First Ultrasound

A week early- did I mention my neurosis?  5 weeks 3 days and it's TRIPLETS.
Baby A is the small one- 6.2mm, B is 10.1mm (and kind of squashed), C is 10.6mm.  Nothing much else is visible because this is EARLY.  Tubes are clear, ovaries are enlarged but no obvious reasons for all the pain I'm having.

Otherwise known as calming my neurosis. . .

18dpo/IUI= 1781!!! Doubling time of 36hrs.

Now, I only have to fret over the possibility of ectopic (not likely) until my ultrasound on the 22nd.


Today I am 4.4weeks.   Still soooooo early and yet it feels like forever since my first positive pregnancy test (a week ago tomorrow). 

Because I'm slightly neurotic, I begged another BETA today.  I'm waiting on the results.  Based on standard doubling, we are looking for something over 1108.  If I am still tripling, then I expect something around 2448 or higher.  My forecast is 2800. :-)

I have OHSS (Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome).  Thankfully it's in the milder range and doesn't require any intervention (yet).  I'm terribly bloated (as in I can't button my pants) and my ovaries hurt!  Otherwise, we are plugging along fine.

Everything smells. . . I cook meat and I smell like meat and the whole house smells like meat (no one else seems to notice this).  I walk in the front door and smell wood fire, but we haven't had a fire in fireplace in over a week. . . my van smells like chicken food from hauling it home from the feed store and it makes me want to hurl.

13 days until my ultrasound. . . I will make it!  I'm trying to talk myself out of begging for an earlier one.

Today at 9am- (12dpo/IUI)  78!!!!

It's official.

Repeat on Saturday, praying for a double!

BETA 2- (14dpo/IUI) 272!!!!!!!!!  That's a triple + (doubling time of 26 hours).

There's Two Lines Folks!

It's faint. . . but that is a 2nd line!  11 days past IUI.  I tested around noon, so this wasn't FMU.   I have my first BETA tomorrow morning.  I'll probably POAS a few more times between now and then.
