Week 6 Ultrasound

Posted on 20th May 2011 in 1st Trimester

May 20, 2011 – Our first ultrasound was with our fertility doctor in California.  This was the first time hearing our babies heartbeats. I can not even begin to explain how I was feeling hearing those little hearts for the very first time.  This was also when we received conformation that we have twins on the way.  We’re super excited!

2nd labs…. Am I still pregnant?

It is so hard this early in the pregancy… so scary.  I feel like everything I do could in some way hurt the babies… are they doing ok?  am I still pregnant?

So it was a huge relief to get the 2nd set of labs done and know that they are growing just fine.

My hCG level this week was 11,163 (normal level is up to 7,340) so we are pretty sure there are multiple babies in there… How cool is that?

Finally – Labs to prove it!

Today I had my first lab work done and sure enough it was positive!  I am sure after years of telling us our treatment were unsucessful, our nurse, Anita was so excited to give us the great news this time.

My labs showed that my hCG level was 538

Anita told me that this was a little higher than normally expected and could imply that this was a multiple pregnancy!

What? Twins?  How awesome would that be?!
