I have Endometriosis and the fertility doctors say that this was the most likely cause for my infertility. We tried a few IUI’s with Clomid that failed and then after only one IVF cycle, we were over the moon to learn we were pregnant. What a miracle! We got pregnant on our first IVF cycle! I was so happy for so many reasons but also because the IVF process for me was stressful and painful and I swore I would never do it again. Right away in those first few days, our nurse suspected twins since my HCG numbers were so high. Sure enough, on the 7 week ultrasound, I saw it with my own eyes. There were two beautiful heartbeats that looked like flickering stars to me. Each baby was in their own sac, so they were fraternal twins. My fertility doctor reassured me that day that I was at no higher risk for any medical issues than any other mother of twins at this point and we were discharged to our OB.
