Name the Sacs



We are so thrilled with yesterday's news and so touched by each and every comment and well wish! Thank you. I was so excited that there appeared to be one healthy embryo growing yesterday, but two is extra special! I am quite aware of the heightened risks of twin pregnancies, and that there is still a possibility of vanishing twin syndrome, where one twin disappears, but we are trying to be as optimistic as possible. I feel very confident that medicine knows much more about how to have a healthy twin pregnancy than before, and we live near some amazing high-risk OB's and a Level 3 NICU. I am trying to educate myself about the risks and ways to take care of myself in the hope that both twins make it, and we are holding two babies in December.

Beta came back (for 16 days post 5 day transfer, or 16dp5dt at 5594. Looking good!!

With all the positivity and optimism coursing through my veins, I am thinking Sacs A and B need names. Because, seriously, we can't call them Sacs A and B forever!

Help me out, Internets, and offer up some ideas.

    How about Apple and Banana (a & b, get it? OK, not very original, but family friendly.)

  10. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I am so happy for you! On the name front - my husband and I play a little game where we try and come up with names that we would never name our children. It always makes us laugh. Right now my embies are Ernie and Bernie. We are hoping those names stick with us for 9 more months - LOL.
