Cysts, Beta, and more......


Well, it has been a really ruff 2 days! Above is a picture of the Twinkies, that's right Twinkies!! You can't see the second one very well but it is just to the left of the one that is really visible... It was hiding!! They are right down from the GE symbyol at the top of the U/S field. So, I know I said I wasn't supposed to get my U/S until the 6th of June, but yesterday I started having a lot of pain on my left side with some spotting. The pain got so bad last night that I could barely sleep. Well, I saw my RE this AM when I went in for my Beta, and she was worried enough that she wanted to get a look at what was going on. Well, what she found was 3 ruptured cysts on my left ovary with blood clots in them, something odd at the end of my left tube that she isn't sure of, and several more cysts on both ovaries that look like they might burst. She also found some free fluid behind my right ovary. So after all the looking that she did, she asked me if I wanted to peek at the baby, and I said sure... well that was when we saw the both of them all nestled up together!! It was amazing I have to tell you. She put me on bed rest to try to keep the cysts from bursting, and I have to go back in on Friday for another check to see how things are. If the cysts start to look bad they might have to aspirate them, because she said that to many of them busting can cause a miscarriage... well we don't want that to happen, so I am all for sucking them out!!! When they called this after noon my Beta was 3694, and the doubling time was 42.76 hours, which is good, and my lining is very thick. I cannot tell you how excited Clark and I are about the whole thing!!!
I am off to bed for the night, the guys are working on the porch all freaking day, so I can't sleep, and my Fetal Alarm Clock gets me up every morning at 4-4:30...
Wow, I am gonna have twins... how cool is that?????

Wowow! Two of them! I hope the cysts stop being a problem, because that sounds pretty scary. Congratulations!

Congrats on the twins! I hope the cysts go down on their own. Sounds a little ouchy, plus I don't want anything to interfere with your babies!
