    [TRIGGER] We had our first ultrasound this morning and it showed TWINS!!!! I nearly fell off of the table. We could hear their tiny heartbeats, too! My RE wants to see me in 2 weeks, then they're releasing me. I'm kind of sad to go. I will miss having such a good doctor's office.

    I'm kind of having morning sickness now. I can only eat a small amount at a time and I feel queasy. I guess that's a good sign!

    Congratulations!! Twins are great!! Question... are you still on your meds? My Dr. still has me on all my meds, I'm calling them today, but just thought I'd check with you because I know you had a FET also. I know with my fresh cycle I was off all the meds the day after my first beta. I'm ready to get off these meds!!

    I had a fresh cycle. I have to stay on my meds until I'm 12 weeks and I'm 7 weeks today. I hate the progesterone injections! My hips are swollen, lumpy, and itchy. I'm also using 2 progesterone suppositories daily and estrogen patches every other day.

    Congratulations!

    I am in my 2ww, and taking the progesterone suppositories. What are the estrogen patches for? And do you know exactly what the progesterone suppositories do?

    Thanks!

    FrenchBulldogMom replied to ChloeMcG13's response:
    My doctor said that I'm on the progesterone and estrogen so that we can provide the best environment for the babies to develop and to minimize the risk of miscarriage. After IVF, they usually put everyone on at least one type of progesterone and the patches. I don't think that my estrogen is especially low, but they have me applying 1 Vivelle patch every other day. At my last beta, my progesterone wasn't as high as they wanted it to be, so they added the suppositories to my already once daily shots.
