Hi Girls,
I'm not sure how many of you will remember me but I was part of this forum not too long ago. After one miscarriage, two years of trying, 2 IUI's and one round of IVF we finally got pregnant with our twin boys! I'm 26 weeks along now and things have been going really well. Except for the usual discomforts like swelling, a sore back and low iron I think things have gone really smooth. One great thing about having multiples is you get to see your doctor a lot more often and have more ultrasounds than a singleton baby so it's great to have so many opportunities to check on the babies.
These past two weeks we have been busy getting the nursery ready. We painted the room a celery green and the crib bedding is a nautical theme with green, blue and taupe in it. It's super cute! We also finally decided on our names, Owen James and Reed Alexander. So we are happy that two of the biggest decisions are almost complete.
So our official due date is November 11th, but with twins we expect them to come a little early so I think it will be sometime in October. I'm really crossing my fingers that the babies stay in there as long as possible! I'm leaving work early September so I'm sure those couple of weeks off will be good for me and the babies.
Well I just wanted to check in and see how everyone is doing here! If anyone has any questions about IUI's or IVF let me know, I'm more than happy to share my story! Wishing you all a great summer and I hope you get your BFP's very soon!

Congrats w/ the twins. I was wondering how many IUI's you had before you did the IVf? I'm going on my 3rd IUI this month.
