Oh my goodness Gingmg you sound like me after EVERY APPT!! Especially in the beginning I'd have this wave of relief after every appt.... That would last for approx 2 days and then I'd start to worry for the next appt!

Also, Postalmom, apparently I am a major bump rubber without even knowing it!!! I've had a few people tell me that they knew I was pregnant before I announced publicly because I couldn't stop touching my stomach now I am conscious of it and I have to physically restrain myself

Lol. Chickadee.
Ging, the worry is always there. I had a great beta of 1300. Then I had to wait til I was 8 weeks (yesterday) for my first u/s. All I could think about was is there 1 or 2 and more than that was. .. Is the heart beating? I was more relieved to see the heart beats than I was excited about it being twins at that moment. I have another u/s tomorrow morning as I have been released from my ivf study. Yeah!!!!

Ooooh - another ultrasound! I never got tired of those. Unfortunately, I won't get any more unless they have a reason to order one. I guess I have to hope not to get anymore.

Did your doctor test your progesterone levels? I was on progesterone for 10 weeks, but my RE's protocol was for everyone to stay on their meds until then. I know other ladies here who were on their progesterone for less time.

For me, probably not until about 8 weeks.

AFM, sitting at the lab waiting for my 3 hour glucose test.

My Specialist has me on the crinone until 12 weeks. I think maybe as a precaution as I've never had progesterone issues.

I was on Crinone until 8 weeks.... I've not heard of anyone stopping at 5.. Can you ask to stay on it for a bit longer???

Disney - good luck with this beetus test! My 1 hour is the 28th!

Country girl - yay for graduating!!! Although I did feel more "special" at the specialist

Gingmg - I really never had any symptoms except being tired and that started right away. Cramps, and sore boobs I guess, but again, that was kid of continuous.. Never had MS or anything (so don't panic if you don't get any!!).

Had my monthly appt at the OB today - my weight gain so far is perfect so what a relief!! I've been really hard on myself lately and the reassurance was so nice.. Heartbeat is steady at 150/155 bpm!!

I saw that someone got a BFP on the original thread... Should we PM her the new link so she can join us???

Ya. . Invite her over. . Everyone is welcome! !
Cntrygrl. Yeah!!
I went to my obgyn today. His u/s is not as good as my fertility clinics. But oh well. It's gonna cost me a small fortune. I had to pay 348 today and every month finishing at 24 weeks. Plus the labs and 20 % of anything else. Being a twin pregnancy I figure I only have 3 maybe 4 months tips to work. I'm trying to pay off bills, move, set up my new home and prepare to live off of dh salary. Not good. Maybe when I can't deliver the mail any more I can get a job answering phones or something to keep the income coming. Also I have decided to do cloth diapers this time. I'm looking at so many different kinds. I'm guessing I'll be going with the ones that are 5 each or less because 20 a diaper seems to much. I will also be breast feeding. Now if I can just remember what box I packed my sewing machine up in, I could stay making some clothes and blankets. I don't follow patterns, I just copy stuff. Or wing it. Lol
