I'm Officially on the way to becomming America's Next Top Momma! x2- Ultrasound #1 -


Here's the recap to date: Beta #1 - 500 - 10dp5dt, Beta #2 - 3671 - 14dp5dt

The first pregnancy scan (u/s) was initially scheduled for this Thursday, however, last night we had a bit of a scare. I went to pee and had an unpleasant surprise - light pinkish brown spotting. Needless to say, I freaked the Fuck out! Panic and worry shot through me and I was beside myself.

I had the u/s moved up and we went this afternoon for the big news. We sat in the room waiting for the RE for a good 20 minutes. OMG this was worse than the TWW. The 20 minutes felt like 20 hours. I don't think I've ever felt so much anxiety and overall nausea at one time.

The Doc started the U/S and formally introduced us to our 2 beautiful little beans. Yes! We are having TWINS!!!! They are snuggled side by side. Both are perfect in size and are measuring exactly what they should be at 5w6d :) Baby A and Baby B both presented very faint heartbeats as it is still too early but we are scheduled for out next ultrasound in 10 days. Hoping to hear the beautiful sound of our babies' hearts.

The doctor said that many women spot and I should try not to worry. Relief.
BTW, I just realized I know nothing about babies. OMG I'm having TWINS :0

  9. Being an egg donor is a wonderful thing to do. This is because you know that you are helping other women who cannot have children get pregnant and begin a family. It is a very satisfying experience, especially if you get to know the recipient and can share their joy with them.

  10. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us! I was diagnosed with PCOS 7 years ago. Unfortunately treatment didn't work at all. So the only solution was using donor eggs. Now I'm in the very beginning of the process. We've just came back from Ukraine. We've already chosen donor. Our program coordinator sent us 3 variants by mail. We wanted our donor to look like me. So we asked our doctor to find donor with my features. We sent list with desirable phenotype of donor to our program coordinator. We chose lovely girl, who looks similar with me to be our donor. It was important for us the clinic to check donors carefully. I read so many stories about donors with genetic diseases. That was so sad and horrible. Children born with genetic diseases only because of doctors negligence. We were really afraid that doctors might miss something. I really want my child to be healthy and happy. I don't want him/her suffer during whole life because of physical and mental pain. We all know how cruel can be other children and how they bulling kids because they are not like others... Our doctor told us they check not only donors, but their relatives too. So there are no risks of genetic diseases. So, it was our second visit to Ukrainian clinic biotexcom. We were in Ukraine during 6 days. We had sperm pick-up, fertilization of donor’s eggs and embryos transfer into my uterine cavity. We were met in the airport. Then taxi was transporting us to the clinic and our apt. We were provided with cozy accommodation and food supply. There were so many people in the clinic! I should there was literally crowd! Even bigger than during our first visit. I'm sooo nervous! I hope everything will be fine. Can't wait to do pregnancy test! Though we have 4 more tries, but I hope this one is successful!
