A ghrá mo chroí {29 week pic }
A ghrá mo chroí which means love of my heart! in Irish

Ok 1st off I can't believe I'm posting over here. I've been a member of JM since May 2009 and we have been ttc since June 2008.
Most of ye girls know me as I have struggled with most of ye and watched and cheered ye on getting ye'r BFP's and watching yer babies grow up. Some of my amazing friends are on BFP #2 and there are still so many of my friends that I started with on this journey.

So for those that don't know me here is a quick up date on my story.
I'm Rebecca(35) DH is Maurice (36) and we are from Ireland. We started ttc before our wedding and that is where this amazing heartbreaking and now joyful story starts.
We got married on the Island of Malta with 60 guests.
After a while of bfn's I went to the Dr because of my age I didn't want to waste to much time. DH had a SA which was perfect so it was my turn to be tested. I had my 1st Lap in September 2009 where they found a lot of Endo and my left tube was very badly twisted and damaged beyond repair so I was booked in for 2nd Lap on our 1st wedding anniversary October 8th. they removed my left tube and as much Endo as they could and then I was on a menopause injection for a few months while I recovered and before IUI's started, But while I had my Lap I also had a smear test done.
this was the start of a 7 month Cancer scare where I had 3 colposcopies and 2 Leeps. But was given the all clear. and was told to wait again before IUI.
Anyway to make a long story short. I had 2 IUI's with injections and 6 clomid cycles. So it was the big move to IVF.

Here are some links to my journey.
My ttc#1 journal link

My IVF cycle link

I tested Saturday morning September 18th and I couldn't look at the test so I asked DH to look I wanted to surprise him in a reaklly cute way but my nerves got the best of me. He kept saying I think it's 2 lines so I grabbed it and OMG t lines he kept saying are you sure, are you sure so I did another test then another and another :lol:
Sorry pic's are blurry




I just can't believe it I'm still in shock. I'm going to ring the Dr in the morning and try and get my beta done on Tuesday and then the week of the Oct 17th I will go for my scan...

Sorry that was so long but I'm just so excited to be posting over here. I'm looking forward to getting to know new girls and can't wait to share this part of my journey with all of you.

So here go the belly pic's :)

Re: A ghrá mo chroí
Hoping those 2 weeks fly by. As far as that feeling i've had that kind of thing both pregnancies. I remember with Darcy I actually had a cyst which was causing it. I can't remember if this was asked or not but do you have any possible names?

Re: A ghrá mo chroí
I had some pain Tuesday. Well on Wednesdayit got really bad. So I rang the clinic Dublin they told go to the local hospital and get a scan to make sure it wasn't an ecpitoc pregnancy.
So I rang the general hospital. They said i need a referral from my GP that I couldn't just come over. I tried but couldn't get to see my GP till later in the evening so I rang my friend karen who is a Dr and she wrote me a letter and rang the hospital
she rang me at 10:00am and said go straight over there expecting me.
so I went over with maurice....

We waited for 2 hrs and they told me drink water but hold pee as I'd need full bladder t
Then a young trainee dr came in to take my details.
she was clueless I had to explain so much to her so my faith in her went out the window. I mean she asked when my IVF was I said 4 weeks ago and I got a bfp 2 weeks ago. Then she said so that makes you 2 weeks pregnant. I said no that makes me 6 weeks she asked me How? I said well transfer was 4 weeks ago. She said so how are you 6 weeks. I thought OMG I'm going to hit her. I said you take the day your egg start growing as day one of pregnancy. She said Oh is that how they do it with IVF I said no that how they count it with every woman in the world. I mean come on she's the dr.....

Anyway they took blood. Then she said lie on the bed she listened to my chest and felt my tummy
When she pressed my right side it hurt like hell. so she said she'd go find the main dr and give him her findings....
So 20min later she came back in and said the dr has finished the fetal scanning since 12 and gone so I had to come back in the morning at 8:30am. It was now 12:45v I was there since 10:30
I was so upset and mad.
I said thats fine I guess ye don't don't relaise the hell I've been through the get pregnant or else ye don't give a ****.
So I picked up my jacket and stormed off.

I rang Karen my friend and she rang hospital and was told that because the dr was finished that they were not to call the dr back in that I would have to wait till tomorrow morning.
So thats it I'm home worried in pain and have to wait....
All I wanted to know is that everything is ok. I was so scared I only have one tube which has scaring on it and its the right so I know there could be a chance.
I mean this pain was bad and there has to be a reason or else the main clinic in Dublin wouldn't have told be go get a scan straight away.

So after a night with no sleep I went back to the hospital yesterday and I was so scared.
Well all is ok. The pain was from enlarged ovary on my right side. She said it would go away with time but if it got bad to come back in. The Dr this morning was so so nice.
She did the scan and said I was measuring at 6 weeks 2 days.
Then she said do you want to listen to the heartbeat. OMG I starting crying my eyes when I heard it and saw it flicking away on the screen. She then said do you want to hear the 2nd heart. I was finished I was crying so much. Two beautiful heartbeats.

She said everything looked great and that they were not identical twins as they each have there own sac.
So that's it girls I'm having TWINS ♥ ♥
