LilliV :  that’s why we waited to ttc number two, it would be $2k a month for two kids in our area

So if we have multiples… lol my husband might be a stay at home dad, or we might not be able to use a center, and my daughter thrived in her program

LilliV :  congrats!! I haven’t done IVF, but I’m pregnant with my second baby (11 weeks and change) and I also felt a weird letdown sensation in the very early weeks with this one…and there’s just one in there!

LilliV :  Wow, that is CRAZY-high daycare costs. I guess there are some benefits to living in the armpit of America, daycare for an infant here is ~$700-$800 a month. I make okay-not-great money, so by the time we covered daycare x2 and the housekeeper it would take to keep us sane, I’d probably have to quit. Twins are scary, I don’t know how people do them, but the people I know have all somehow made it work.

I’m currently 23 weeks pregnant w/ twins.  Because of recurrent miscarriages, I had my HCG level tested early in the pregnancy and my HCG levels with my singleton daughter were MUCH higher than with the twins.  I don’t think it’s a reliable indicator.

dianaj17 :  where do you live? I’m in PA and infant cost is 1500!! 

LilliV :  yay we are may month babies!!! Oh wow you were that fast with delivery? In a way I’m a little jealous lol. Fingers crossed that it’s a singleton. The ultrasound is the truth keeper of this info!!! In a week you’ll know!

LilliV :  my 10dp5dt hcg was 563 and 48 hours later it skyrocketed to 2396. They told me the embryo split or something was chromosomally wrong. I have ONE perfectly healthy four year old girl. Don’t stress about betas. There genuinely isn’t a rhyme or reason in many cases.

LilliV :  OMG!!! Yes we know when it’s time and when the baby is coming. I had to be induced and they told me I would be there until Sunday (this was Friday morning). They induced me at noon and by 630 I had horrible contractions. I was like 3cm. I go the epidural and was relaxed. By 1040 the doctor came back to check and I was like 8cm. I was told it would be many hours still. Not even 10 minutes later I called the nurse in and told her I had the urge to push and she called the doctor… yup it was go time. They were off with everything. I pushed for an hour and a half. My daughter got stuck because she was over 9 pounds! I wonder if she wasn’t so big would it have been like your situation? It makes you wonder for the next one. I did hear it goes even faster the second time! Make sure you’re in stand by at like 36 weeks. I wonder why all woman and labor is so different.

runningmama :  I had an ‘abnormal’ embryo

it was splitting at twice the rate (on day two it was at the point of a day 4) many clinic would disgard it as having something wrong with it (possibly molar etc…) but it was my only one as fiance has abnormal sperm and the others failed to fertilise even with ICSI so my clinic put it back to see what would happen.

my HCG was then off the charts too (another possible molar sign) but it just turn out he was a very strong embryo and is now a happy, healthy 1 year old.
