I had my first ultrasound today and everything looks perfect.  I have been having a lot of nausea and just general icky flu like symptoms ever since I found out I was pregnant.  This is weird because I have never had much morning sickness with either of my pregnancies before.  I also had two nice follicles this Femara cycle and my blood Hcg numbers were quite high this time.  All signs were nodding toward twins, but it turns out there is only one baby in there.  Yay!

One of my blogger friends asked what I was doing at the end of my experiment that might have contributed to achieving pregnancy success.  I was exercising 3-4 times per week (mix of cardio and strength training with weights).  I was eating a lower glycemic/lower carb diet with an emphasis on whole, unrefined food and protein with every meal and snack.  I was going to acupuncture once a week.  I was taking many supplements including D-Chiro-Inositol, Myoinositol, NAC, Fish Oil, Calcium/Magnesium, multi with folic acid, antioxidant powder, B-multi, Vit D and C, etc.
