    A gender reveal party sounds like fun! I think I will be too impatient to do it myself, but I would love to go to someone else's!

    We got some fun news yesterday.... My early beta and progesterone levels indicated there is a high possibility I'm carrying TWINS! I went in for another blood test today, so I will know more tomorrow. The nurse said they won't definitely know until the 7 week ultrasound, but my high levels combined with the fact that I was on Clomid make twins very probable. I AM SO EXCITED! For those who haven't read my story before, I have endometriosis and just underwent surgery to remove it a month ago. Prior to that, we had been trying to get pregnant for 2 years with no luck. So this pregnancy is most definitely a miracle in my eyes, and the possibility of twins is unbelievable.

    I'll update when I get more info. Thanks all!

    Tintri- I'm so excited for you! You could have a house full of kids pretty quickly and that is definitely wonderful after you may have not been sure you'd ever have any. If not twins, at least I think that means your body is working well with this pregnancy. Keep us updated!

    Tintri- so glad your hormone levels are good! My weekly blood tests always made me so nervous. And congrats on the possibility of twins! So fun :-)

    @hearts_n_stars - I'm actually due early December but I just wanted to chime in here and say that our peanut's heartrate was also 96 at our 6 week ultrasound. That is completely normal and our OB said it was perfect and nothing to worry about. At week 8 it had gone up to 160 where it belongs (tho 130 is also considered perfect). So please don't stress out too much! As long as your hormone levels have been where they belong, and the heart rate went up, I'm sure everything is just fine! (Believe me, I know it's way easier said than done)

    Thanks for starting this... I was wondering when it would pop up.

    I have my 8 week ultrasound in 4 hours (but who's counting?) I am so incredibly nervous. We had an ultrasound on March 8th and discovered that our pregnancy wasn't viable. I had a D&C and it was rough for all of us. So... I really want to get past this appointment and the 10 wk OB check up on July 2nd. And then I feel like I can breathe a little bit.

    Congrats @Tintri!!! - I also have Endometriosis, it actually runs in my family though no one put the links together until this generation. I had the surgery in 2007 and conceived our son naturally 24 days later. I had it again last November, and it took a about 3 months to conceive using Femara.
    this pregnancy was conceived using Femara on the the first cycle of trying Post-Miscarriage.

    I'm due with my first February 16th. I'm very nervous, and very excited. Especially since the baby's due date is only 11 days away from my birthday!

    I have amazing news... we had our first ultrasound today. 8 wks. And everything is perfect!!!

    So perfect, it's actually TWICE as perfect!!! TWINS!!!

    They are measuring the same, and right on schedule. And each has the same heartbeat of 169 bpm. We are so happy and feeling so blessed. I've had twins on the brain all week... now I know why!

    I can't get the picture to load, so here it is on my blog: http://inthelandoferin.blogspot.com/2013/06/so-blessed.html
