She's going to have to hold on until her next BT as that's what's going determine things for her I think. Fruck waiting until Saturday!! I'd be off to the GP on Fri morning for an urgently marked BT (or GP the arvo/evening before to at least get the pathology request form for the next day)
and prayers being sent her way!!!

Sorry Julie, I do understand how anxious you must be I guess I just get stuck on the 'how wonderful' part and kind of can't see past that!
You're right, it IS going to be a lot of hard work. The good thing is you have, what, 5 months or so to plan for it now? I'd buy every book under the sun about caring for twins, how to set sleep patterns, best way to feed two bubbas etc. Get a plan in place before they come, so that when you're sore and emotional after birth you have something to refer to.
Is there anyone you could ask to come and stay with you after the babies arrive? A relative or friend who might be able to come for the first week or two and be your helper? Even if all they do is take the babies for a walk so you can eat and have a shower, that little bit of peace might be what you need to get through the day.
I'm sure DP will be a great help too. Yep, money is tight at the best of times and I presume after the babies come that will be the case also. Obviously one of you has to work so I guess that's whomever earns the biggest wage? Is there any way you or DP can work some from home? That way even if the twins don't co-operate during daytime hours, one of you could do some work at night.
Hugs hon, I didn't mean to trivialize things for you. I'm sure you have a whole lot on your mind at the moment
Hope your scan goes well this afternoon, and can't wait to hear all about it!

I'm a bit of a realist and a firm believer in not wanting to build people up too high and then letting them have a big fall.
If it were me, I'd say something along the lines of "Well, it looks like something is definitely trying to happen for you, lets wait and see what news the next BT brings. I hope it's good news!"
I'd refrain from great declarations such as "Congratulations, you're definitely pregnant!"
Three days is a hard wait. Hey, two days is bl@@dy hard too. I really hope that this IS it for your friend, but I'd be cautious getting too excited just yet. I know that probably sounds harsh, but ideally you would want HCG to be a little higher than what hers is I think.
Fingers crossed love I hope I'm being overly cautious and you can take great joy in coming back to me in three days time and telling me to jam my advice, lol

Just wanted to let you know @Charlie, that I myself have no concerns with you posting pictures of babies.
Sometimes I do feel a bit sad when I see them, but it's a sweet sort of pain if that makes sense. I still love looking at babies and their little squishy faces and tiny little fingers, even if I don't have one myself
Thanks for the consideration though. I'm sure there are others who may not feel as I do and it's nice you thought of everyone's feelings.

JM You must have had your scan by now... Waiting for your results ...
Midnite01 sorry love .. As JM said, is leaving the medication not an option?
A big hello and welcome to Countrygirl72 and all the new lovlies... This thread is very very supportive in this stressful journey
BIB we totally understand that you do have family commitments especially with a toddler. In fact you have been EXTREMLEY HELPFUL AND SUPPORTIVE for all of us. Take care love and hope the slow transitioning of your dd goes really smoothly. Please Try to post whenever you can sneak out some time as this thread is incomplete without your sound advice and loving posts...
Hello Charlie 74 Blossom74 and Bongley... How did u go Bongley?
Chiefsgirl. Thanks for your reply in regards to intralipids.
Corbes I really hope your friend has a late implanter....
Had my scan today
Today is my last injection. I trigger tomorrow and egg pick is on Saturday.
We had abt 9 between 16mm and 21mm and abt 4 at 15 mm. I was thinking they would trigger tonight with one egg being 21. May be LB wants the 15 mm ones to mature as well. But then I was thinking isint the21mm egg ready for pick up. Hopefully she has worked out everything as I don't one to lose the mature ones.
Also .. Monash doesn't provide rooms at Epworth Hawthorn for DH 's sample on Saturday , so we are told to make our own arrangements... May be book a hotel closer to the place.... But that's kind of weird. ... After paying so much $ , they can't provide the service on a Sat.... It's no different to other days... Anyways...

@Sue77 I don't think the big ones would be lost at that size, wow you have an amazing range there!! I hope to be triggering tomorrow too but I really don't know yet. I have kept an eye on the OPKs and absolutely no sign of a natural ovulation and my follicles must be getting big by now, will find out tomorrow at the scan!
@Corbes yeah I'd be cautious but she may as well be a bit hopeful over the next few days.

Blossom74 yes we have DP's father but everyone else works in our families. DP will take however many months off if need be, and yes I'm the one who should be going back to work and he stay at home but of course he's unpaid when not working whereas I have about 45 weeks of leave I can take. Due to our work environment I can't just be off for 45 weeks and I don't want to anyway. I have the option of flexible hours and working from home so we are lucky in that regard too.
Anyway, scan was perfect as always, both measuring exactly to the day and both had heart rates of 155. She thinks they are both girls but only a 77% chance of being right for each one this early on. I kind of thought we'd have two girls so no surprise to me but I really hoped we'd have at least one boy.
Good luck @Sue77, sounds like you'll get a good batch. What, they can't find someone to operate the dad player on a Saturday ?. Jeez, it shouldn't be that hard !

I had a 23mm follie last cycle. That was the one which led to my BFP I was told follies can grow at an average rate of 2mm a day, so if they all co-operate, going by that you could well expect to have up to 13 eggs retrieved. That's an amazing result!
Also, I second what you said to @BIB. BIB, you are an amazing suppport to us all and we appreciate that you take time out of your busy schedule to help us along our chosen paths. I hope DD's transition to DC is a smooth one for you both. It must be hard on you also, so
