Update. SENSITIVE...scan

Hope4040

So I’ve had my viability scan this morning, I’ve been an emotional mess these last few days and not been able to have my OH there was hard.

BUT!! There are 2 healthy heart beats both measuring 8 weeks 💓💓

I’m still in complete shock tbh, it really feels like a blessing. I’ve never got this far before. And the clinic had said the likelihood of it being twins would be small due to my age - 40 in a months time!

I know there is still a long way to go but I’m going to keep positive that these 2 are here to stay 🙏🏽

I also want to say that my thoughts are with everyone who are waiting to have their cycles. I have a feeling that come June you will be able to start again 🤞🏼

Thanks. I just can't wait until my turn. I am a twin, myself, though, and it is the most amazing thing even in to adulthood, so I am wishing you and your twinnies all the best. Super congratulations. x

Thank you lovely xx

Wow!! Congratulations!! I'm guessing you only had one embryo transferred? Good luck for 12 week scan and the rest of the pregnancy xxx

No we had 2 transferred! But we’re told the likely hood of them both making it would be small. That’s why it’s come as a bit of shock xx

Thank you for your kind wishes 💓

Aww brilliant! Double the fun!! Congrats again. I think this is the first post I've seen where both were sticky xx

What do you mean sticky? Xx

Sticky means stayed there. Xx

Lovely news congratulations ❤️ so happy for you 🥰🌈🌈 xxx

Amazing 🥰🥰

Omg congratulations lovely news ❤️❤️

Thanks Nikki. It’s not long now till your scan is it? Xxx

Congratulations. That’s amazing news ❤️❤️ I had just turned 41 when I found out my 2nd round of IVF worked and I was pregnant with twins. It’s seems like yesterday I was where you are but I’m now 36 weeks and due to have my girls next week by c section!

Wishing you the very best of luck for your pregnancy ❤️❤️ xx

Oh my gosh this makes it all feel very real 😬 How have you found your pregnancy?

You must feel so excited that you get to meet them next week 💖💖

Wishing you all the best for it xx

To be honest, I’ve think I’ve been very lucky. The first 2 trimesters were physically quite easy! No morning sickness or anything. We had a bit of a scare around 22 weeks Re the growth scan for twin 2 - they thought she was a bit smaller than she should’ve been but the hospital were brilliant, I had a scan every 2 weeks just to keep an eye on them. Twin 2 caught up and they think it was just a blip in the measurement. They said to remember they are measuring a tiny moving target in millimetres through your stomach/uterus so there’s always room for errors! It was good to get all the extra scans though which reassured us each time - I had 14 in total!! Last one was on Monday, both are looking good and weighing around 5.5lbs.

The last few weeks haven’t been as easy just because my bump is now huge and heavy! But I won’t complain, as long as they are growing healthily that’s all that matters. Feel free to message me with any questions you might have throughout your pregnancy. I found speaking to people on here very useful ❤️

Are you going to find out the sex?xx

Congratulations twins, that's such amazing news. I wish you a happy healthy pregnancy, keep us updated throughout

Thanks Sarah 😊 yes I will keep you all updated. You must be feeling on cloud 9 too with your recent scan.

The anxiety never goes though does it xx

Yeah I am, just want to get to the 12 week scan then I can tell people. Still a long journey ahead.

Amazing news!! So happy for you !!!! Twins must be a shocker, but a definite good one! Congrats 🤗 xxxx

in reply to Lowamh

I’ve just seen your post! How amazing 🥰 one of each. How are you finding motherhood? Xx

Did you have any idea it might be twins?!? Xx

I suppose I had a slight suspicion that both of them had implanted because of the pregnancy tests. They would go so dark within seconds. Also just the extreme tiredness but at the same time I wasn’t sure because I’d got this far last year and was having all the symptoms but there was no heart beat at the scan. I think I’d got myself so worked up that it was going to be the same again. Xx

You are a spring chicken, same age as me. :-) Great news x

🐥wish I felt like that right now 😂 xx

On the whole sounds like you’ve had a nice pregnancy. It’s reassuring also to know you get all those extra scans. I’m glad they are both looking healthy ☺️

When did you start getting a bump? I’ve heard it comes a lot sooner.

I’ve not been feeling so bad tbh, I get waves of nausea but not to the point I can’t eat. It’s the tiredness at the moment I’m finding the hardest.

I think we would want to find out the sex. There’s a lot more planning to do with 2!

Thanks for your kind offer of support...it’s not going to be long now before you have your hands full so wouldn’t want to pester you xxxx

Wonderful news x 😘

Oh wow what wonderful news congratulations x

in reply to Snowlady

It was through ICSI and a double transfer. Both same grade embryos - 4BB.

I’ve heard they should be the same grades in the hope they both have a chance of making it.

Fingers and toes crossed for your next round. This was our 2nd cycle too. If you need any other info just send me a message and I’d only be only too happy to help xx

Awww I missed this! Amazing news, congratulations!!💗xxx

Thank you 😘😘 hope your doing ok? Xx

Not too bad thanks! Just working and trying to be patient until the clinics reopen....I'm not very good at being patient!!🤣🙈xxx

I’m the worlds worst at being patient! You would think us IVF’ers would be a dab hand at it, as all we ever have to do is wait!

I think another 6 weeks and treatments will be able to start again. I saw flights will be resuming in June 🤞🏼xx

Ha ha ha nope, my patience hasnt gotten any better through this journey. I think the clinics in Athens are talking about opening soon but flights from the UK are banned so will have to wait until they let us in! Hopefully get back on the horse soon.xx

Absolutely everything crossed toes and all 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼 want this so much for everyone OJ this group including yourself 💖💖 it won’t be long now before you will be able to use you gift from your Granny xx

Dear God you started this journey pls complete it. Let the twins stay in Jesus name Amen.

This just brought tears to my eyes. Massive Congratulations Hope4040 !!As your name implies, you have just given me so much hope. May the good lord bless you and the little ones and give you a healthy pregnancy and safe delivery. xxxxxx
