I have some random questions!! My family has multiples running everywhere!! We are TTC and I have already Od and we are waiting to test!! I know this is early.. but tonight.. i was having some nauseau.. and i didnt really think about it.. then i started cooking dinner and it got worse.. my heart beats fast right before I start to get sick.. so i went a sat down.. i drank some sprite.. and i was okay.. now it is back.. i am not sick.. i mean like illness wise.. i am healthy.. we were taking CLOMID this cycle.. and i didnt know how soon you had this problem with nauseau.. our doctor is pretty sure we conceived.. which is nice.. being monitored and such.. he told me there was a chance of muliples.. so i didnt know.. it is prolly too early.. but it just hit me today like crazy!!!
I am not sure of the percentages either, but I have also heard that taking clomid will increase your chances of multiples. This is the drug that makes you release more than one egg during ovulation, right?
I wasn't on it myself, nor did I experience any morning sickness... sorry I'm not much help in that field!
I'm a twin myself, but my mom wasn't taking anything, and she never had m/s. I got pg this time on clomid. I haven't had an u/s yet, but I doubt I'll have twins. My doc told me that starting clomid before CD 5 increases your chance of multiples up to 20% (depending on the dose and why you're taking it). Starting it after day 5 only helps mature eggs that have already been released, so your chance is 2% or less. Overall, it's around 5% for anyone taking clomid, because there are a variety of reasons it's used. I was already ovulating, but I have a LPD, so I m/c every time. The clomid didn't work, so I was started on prometrium as soon as my temp dropped on CD 22.
Yes, with clomid you are at a higher risk for having multiples, most likely twins over anything more, but singletons are still most common with clomid. If you're only a few days past o, though, the nausea is probably hormone related, something you ate, or something else. It takes about 5 days for fertilized embryos to form blastocysts. After they form blasts, they implant, which takes a few days. Only after implantation does the hcg increase. The hcg typically doesn't build up to levels high enough to induce morning sickness until week 5 or 6 (3-4 weeks after o).
I've done fsh meds, though, and they have made me nauseated. Also, you may be using progesterone supplements or other pregnancy support, and those also give mock pregnancy symptoms.
If you want twins, I hope that's what you get. At the very least, I hope you get your bfp. Good luck!!
