Wow 12 weeks already Karhog - that's come around quickly  :) hope all goes well for you  ^hugme^ I know what you means - the waits are interminable. I'm trying to make up my mind whether to get a private 6w scan this week as I don't think I can wait until my next scan at the EPU next week  ^idiot^ DP says whatever I want to do but I don't want to be silly.....

    Not long now then Karhog  ^hugme^ I'm lucky I get quite a bit of movement now which always makes me smile.
    Ooh Grey sorry I can't scroll back as am on mobile, but is this your first scan ? Do you know how many are in there ? First scans are soooo exciting  ^hugme^

    Hi bundles - I had a scan last week at 5w1d because of my OHSS. They could see a gestational sac and said it was all in line with the timings. I would guess at one although we did have three put back. I've got another scan next week baby at the EPU but I'm just in s quandary about whether I can wait that long!

    Grey - i would go for it!
    Bundle - with OE after 40 you only looking 1 good egg per 10 (max 2 if very-very lucky+healthy).
    I had put back 4 in Greece and only one took and i consider myself lucky!

    Hey I am 24w today!!!!

    Yay Mamo 24 weeks  ^hugme^ That's fantastic news!!! I was looking at your siggy earlier and thinking you must be about that. Wonderful! We will celebrate!

    Re the scan - I will be exactly 6w tomorrow. If I can get one around Harley street for tomorrow afternoon I think I'll go for it. A lot of them don't do scans before 6w though....

    Congrats Mamo 24wks is a great milestone of relief  ^hugme^ Ah yes, I hadn't considered the OE after 40 rules, makes perfect sense  :)

    Grey have you tried Babybond ? I know they have clinics all over, def in Harley St too. Am sure they would do it, you're paying after all ! Not sure if the Portland would do self referral.

    Hi Ladies,

    Just a quick question - I'm thinking about having a Harmony test because of my age (and that I can't stop worrying about everything) and I was wondering if any of you girls have had it done/know how much it is/would recommend it?

    Hope everyone's coping ok x

    Also, I had 3 put back, two made it to 6 weeks, and one heart is still beating away now x

    Hi Beldon

    I would have one for my sanity too  ^hugme^ If we get that far I will definitely be booking one so I would say go for it. Sorry to hear one of the two hbs has disappeared  ^eyes^ Sounds like a possible vanishing twin  ^hugme^ Hope you're doing ok?
