Whenever you start to see a light at the end of the tunnel, you think to yourself “are we finally there… or is it another train?” On July 3rd, we had our second beta test, and it looked great!
HCG is supposed to double every 48 hours, and mine was well above that! **Note: 10dp5dt means 10 days past 5 day blastocyst transfer**
They scheduled our first ultrasound for yesterday, July 10th. Now with my high beta numbers I knew there was a higher chance that it was twins, but we wouldn’t know for sure until the ultrasound. It seems like every wait gets worse! The days drug by until the ultrasound.
And…. it’s twins!
This ultrasound is from 5w5d into the pregnancy. Even this early we got to see both heartbeats! One was at 108 and the other was too close to my iliac to get a good reading over my heart rate, but it looked visually to be about the same. In the ultrasound the top picture is the actually babies and the bottom picture is the yolk sacs. We have another ultrasound next Monday to see how they grew from their whopping 2mm each.
We are of course overjoyed, but I am still so scared. I am afraid that we will lose one or both or that something else will go wrong. I thought this would get easier, and maybe it will. Right now I’m still on edge.
Sending baby dust to all of my friends still struggling!
