Hi ladies! So, I am 9 weeks pregnant with twins and everything is going great! Heartbeats are nice and strong and babies are growing and measuring on time! I was released from the fertility clinic yesterday and can now start seeing my OB! I am still taking these estrogen shots until next Saturday (boo), but I was able to stop the PIO shots and switch to endometrin! At least the estrogen is every 3 days and not every day! So, only 3 more shots to go! Yay!

Anyway, just wanted to post some pics for you all! I hope that Kim, Gretchen and I can share some hope and give you confidence that this can work for you too! Sorry, I know the pictures are huge!

Hi everyone! So I saw my OB yesterday and everything was perfect! The babies were so active, they didn't want to stay still! I only have one problem... my blood pressure is starting to creep back up again. My OB only wants me on one medication (currently taking 2 plus a diuretic) and my PCP does not want to change my meds. So frustrating!

Anyway, everything else is good and babies are healthy!
