Hi Ladies,

Thank you for all the good vibes & for always being here for me!!

The U/S went well. Baby A's HB measured 142 bpm & Babys B's was 148 bpm. Dr says this is nice strong. Baby B measured 3.9mm (6w1d) on last U/S & is now 9.4mm (7w0d) this time so is growing well. I am still concerned about Baby A though who measured 4.6mm (6w1d) last U/S but only measured 7.9mm (6w5d) this time. Dr said that they can't always get a real accurate measurement & it is fine but of course I am still worried. They want me to come back for another U/S & blood on Tuesday. they curt my dose of progesterone in half & want to see if my body keeps it up over 20.

I had another IVIG yesterday as my NK's are still a little elevated & I felt pretty nauseous & constipated yesterday afternoon. I went to acupuncture right after & that helped. So we are fighting the battle pretty well so far. i can't wait to get past week 12 & feel a little more in the safe zone!!!

I am so happy to hear all is going so well!!! You are my inspiration! My DH and I will be doing an IVF in August, so I love to hear your progress.

I'm glad you are doing accupuncture; I love it and go about once every two weeks (more during my fertile times).

Take care of you and the babies!

Hi Lisa,

That is such good news!!!! How wonderful is that? Just keep staying relaxed and don't allow anything to ruffle your feathers. I'm sending prayers for Baby A to grow like its sibling. The heartbeats are fabulous!
