As of right now I have two sacks. With my track history this could go either way. I go back in a week for another u/s. We couldn't see much more than the two sacks- and the massive cysts on my ovaries (OUCH!). My RE said ideally he'd wait two weeks to look again, but knows that there is no way to convince me of that- he does understand his patients!

He was happy that we got this on our first cycle back!.But then again we were extremely aggressive with injectables/trigger and IUI, where as the first time around we did a couple of cycles of clomid/trigger and IUI before hitting the big guns. Actually too bad he doesn't post his success rate with IUI's and only IVF, I'd up that this time for him!

Oh and the cysts- I have two on the right which are about 1-2 inches apiece, and one on my left that is around 4 inches!! So no heavy impact, careful stepping of curbs, and a little afraid of DTD at the moment. I should have asked for pictures of those.

OMG how exciting! I really hope those cysts go away (ouch!!) and that you see two beautiful heartbeats very soon! I swear I am going to your Dr when we are ready for MA again! I love how aggressive he is, I've already told DH and he very much agrees we need someone like that!

I really think you will love him-quirky person that he is, plus they are moving to new digs on May 2nd, so they will have a shiny new office- that was one of the only complaints from patients I heard, that the office was a little old- equipment all high tech, but an old office.

Thanks ladies! I'm still nervous. I scared I'm only going to see one baby next week, or none. Then I get scared about seeing two- because I'm considered high risk anyway- a twin pregnancy will push that way up there, plus the cost is scary (I have to work to keep insurance on us and daycare for 3 will be over 20k a year. )

I think I'm just letting emotions get the best of me right now.

Sending you all the best thoughts & prayers and hope you are feeling OK - I completely and 100% understand your feelings & fears as I am in the same place at 7 wks right now. Equally scared to both hear or not hear two healthy heartbeats (we'll also have 3 in daycare if God willing all goes well). My current mantra is to just focus on today (and all the nausea that comes with it) and keep reminding myself that mommies are the strongest people in the world - we'll always do whatever it takes to take care of our babies!
