  • I didn't use fertility drugs or have a multiple birth but I just wanted to express my congratulations to you. I can understand your anxiety though. I know you will survive the trials and tribulations you may endure in the future. You are never given too much you can't handle. Just take deep breaths, relax, and enjoy all five babies. CONGRATS!!!

  • Congratulations! I've never been on fertility treatments and only have one daughter. My sister has on Clomid for several months, but it hasn't resulted in any pregnancies. Before the Clomid they were trying for several years with no pregnancies. She's still trying the Clomid though, but now they're giving her progesterone I think she said, because they were thinking maybe she was conceiving but not implanting. I keep teasing her that she'll end up with multiples. She has endometriosis and fibroid tumors and has decided that if she doesn't conceive by the time she's 35 (she'll be 28 this year) she's going to let them do the hysterectomy because she's tired of the physical pain. I hope she does get to have her own babies. Once again, congratulations on our little ones!

  • thank you. I actually suffer from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. A.K.A.. i dont ovulate and would need help getting pregnant. So when we decided to try for our first baby, we did IUI. IUI is intrauterine insemination where you take meds, are monitored via ultrasound and then your husband’s contribution is placed via catheter...which resulted in triplets and now twins. So if we wanted children after theses two...we'd have to go through that again..
