Pregnancy update!!

Hi all! Just a quick pregnancy update from an August ivf'er!

I'm now 9.5 wks pregnant with my twins, both of whom are doing well! My ohss is finally resolved, so I'm now just dealing with terrible nausea that I'm hoping will resolve as I end the 1st trimester.

For those anywhere near Atlanta, I used RBA (Reproductive Biology Associates), and my dr there is Dan Shapiro. He and his whole staff are AMAZING!! After over a year of failed infertility treatments at another clinic, I'm so grateful for Dr Shapiro and RBA, and highly recommend them.

I'll continue to update periodically... Hope you're all well!!

Congrats to you!!! FYI: I have a friend who conceived triplets via IUI, and she never gained more than 15 pounds. All are healthy though she was on a month of bedrest near the end. She also was a bit early, but with triplets, that is usual. Anyhow, I still cannot believe she gained only 15 pounds and trust me, she was eating! Hope it helps.
