We haven't receieved our chromosome testing results yet. I have my 2 week follow up appointment tomorrow. I didn't think about the fact that they could determine the gender from the testing. I'm not sure I really want to know that.
Best wishes in TTC again!! Hopefully we'll start next month.

It is so tough going back to the drawing board so to speak. I'm sorry you didn't really get an explanation about what happened with the twins. But I wish you good luck with ttc this time around!

Well, that is good news about the boys, though I know it's gotta be bittersweet. Did they offer any answers or speculations as to why it happened? I know pregnancy is so fragile early on. Do they want you on blood thinners or anything before you try again?

Wishing you the very best and hoping to see a BFP from you in the near future. HUGS

Well ladies, we've been given the green light to try again. The reports came back from my D&C from the beginning of December. Twin boys - nothing wrong with them, no abnormalities with the twins or me from this pregnancy. So, we are going to start trying this month. Fingers crossed for better luck in 2012.
