@greenlady, good luck with EPU. Please keep us up to date with egg numbers and fertilisation rates
@Infinity, enjoy getting your nails done. That's on my (extensive) list of things to do this weekend I am crossing everything for you love. Interestingly, I have also read that the snuffles are an early pregnancy sign too....
@JulieM, good luck at your scan today. Your anxiousness is completely understandable love, and I imagine that next time round I will be a basket case also. After you've been through that I really don't think the worry ever leaves your mind. all is well. Everything is pointing to a good outcome so far
Corbes it sounds like you are driving yourself mental already ... I don't envy you the waiting....
I already know they are in separate sacs and I asked my old FS last week what the chances are of identical twins having separate sacs AND separate placentas and he said its not common, so they are more than likely fraternal. Yes, we will definitely want to find out the sexes. In about 2 weeks we can do the verifi or harmony test to find out if we have at least one boy, but will only definitively know both the sexes if they are both girls. I'm really hoping for at least one boy for DP although he says he doesn't have any preferences.
@inifinity888 & @BlondeinBrisvegas ... I'm doing ok ... Ups and downs ya know. And panics at times cause of time and all that jazz - which I'm sure you all understand. I'm trying to think about my eggs as possible-babies rather than not-yet babies ... I'm carrying around fertility crystals in my bra ... And I did a vision board as well ...
You guys are such prolific posters! I managed to read yet retain nothing that was said
I'm reading It Starts with the Egg... and popping pills and drinking super greens and things ... and I'm having one green tea a day rather than coffee (which I'm having once a week) ... I'm only on chapter 2. But I'm getting there. I'm concentrating more on eating good nutrient rich food than dieting but I'm sure I'll have to do that too ... Again - but I think that screwed me last time - I was on optimist as my specialist suggested I do everything to drop weight ... Egg quality is more my issue.
Gotta run ...late for an apportionment/meeting ... I'll have to catch up again later I'm sure.
Big Love to All!
Hi all - thanks for all the well wishes. Got 13 eggs at EPU. Now to wait until tomorrow to get the fertilisation rate.
Yes we may need to wait until the sexes are visible on u/s the good old fashioned way lol.
