Welcome Missl and congratulations on your BFP! I and very sorry for your previous losses. I understand you perfectly and I definitely feel the same. Iím rejoicing this moment as much as I wouldíve wanted

Jen - one week to go u til your scan, I know it seems quiet a long time but try and take each day as it comes. Easier said than done ... I know.

Afm - I found myself today googling early scan near me as I donít know if I can wait until the 17th October .. x x x

    Ally how many weeks/ days will you be on the 17th? Are you still doing the intralipids? I got a cold sore now! Not sure if it's cause the immune system is so suppressed by it or due to the lack of sleep (my only real symptom is waking up at 3am and then no longer being able to fall asleep). By the way the scan reassured me exactly for one day!

    Jen just saw your update on bloods. I am no expert but if the clinic is ok about it then I'd keep the hope very much alive and fingers crossed for your next scan. Willing this embryo on for you!

    MissL73, so nice to see you on here! We've messaged about lining etc. previously. I am with you - anything can happen and nothing much we can do but hope for the best. One day at a time. I am also anxious about the next few weeks. I still haven't told the lovely ladies and friends on my other thread that I even had a bfp (but I guess they can easily find me). Just can't bring myself to say it out aloud.

    Jen - sorry to hear that your scan didn't give you the reassurance that you were hoping for. Really hope that next week's scan gives you brilliant news! They're so tiny at this point that hopefully it was just tricky to measure and is catching up.

    Kat - good to hear that your scan went well today. Yes, I'd probably ring your GP and see what they'd like you to do. From what I've gathered each area can be different. Last pregnancy my GP referred me to a midwife but this time they had no idea why I was ringing them and said I had to ring the hospital and that it's all changed. However, another family member of mine that is currently pregnant was still referred through her GP!

    Missl - so good to see you here! Wishing you the best of luck over the next 8 months! Will be following to see how you're getting on.

    I'm going to be similar to Omnom. I'm now 15+5 so really should just shift over to the due date thread! I have a gender scan too on Saturday so will update on here at the weekend and then probably move over properly!

    Kat - did you call your GP or midwife for advise? I always get one approx once a year. Last time I had it was last December. I usually link it with stress and tiredness, in my case. And also suffering with insomnia. Used to drink herbal teas from HB and take tablets sometimes. But of course not now. It comes and goes. I wake up during the time around 2 ish to go to the toilet and then find it hard to fall back to sleep.
    I will be 11 weeks and 6 days if everything goes well
    Woke up a bit restless, thinking something bad might happen. Still havenít decided on the scan. Meditation didnít help much last night as couldnít switch off.
    Ive done intralipids last week. The next appointment should be the last one.

    welcome audiprincess - congrats on your BFP.

    Hannah - Thank you for your kind words. I guess having never been in this position i don't really know what i expected to see but thought we would have seen a little bit more based on my dates. It was just such a shock when we didnt as we had been so positive up to that point. Good luck for you gender scan!

    missl73 - i really an affinity with your story. The excitement of a BFP can so easily turn to anxiousness and your right we have absolutely no control over what happens. Its just so hard to be positive sometimes and hope for the best whilst also being scared of being let down isnt it. Your numbers on your beta looked really good so i hope everything is getting really snuggles in tight for you.

    ally389 - i dont think that restlessness every goes away till you have a baby in your arms. Its so hard to switch off sometimes. ive heard that insomnia is quite common in early pregnancy. Yeah less than a week to go and hopefully we will have more answers and they will be positive ones. Wish i could just hibernate till next week haha.

    katkat - thanks :) it really is just a waiting game for us. I hate this feeling of being in limbo. Its funny how our moods can change from being reassured one day to back to being anxious the next.

    AFM - Im trying my best to keep my spirits up. I think perhaps a few days offline might be beneficial as ive lost track of the amount of threads and stories ive read looking for answers. It seems to be about a 50/50 split of success and failed.  The clinic havent really filled us with hope and i know they didn't want to over promise but i just feel really lost and alone. All i know is that my HCG rose slightly so we are not totally out and hopefully embryo number 4 is still fighting. Its so stupid but i naively thought that once we had the implantation and bfp that things were finally going to be ok for us. DF is being great at trying to keep me positive but i know he is feeling really sad too as its all we have wanted for so long.

    ally, you do whatever you need to do and if that means an earlier scan than I say go for it. Mine isn't until 15th October and I agree it feels very far away!!

    katkat, it's so nice to be able to join you on here. After you got your BFP with a natural FET I was so hopeful so it's lovely that it worked for me too. I'm so with you on not being able to say it out loud, to be honest I only feel half pregnant if that makes sense?!

    hannahdaisy can't wait to hear what you're having!

    audiprincess, excited you're joining me on this board, fingers crossed we both have sticky ones.

    jenstuttz, I strongly recommend stepping away from the boards and the google rabbit hole. While they are a great source of support much of the time, it did not do me any good when I was in your position last time. I drove myself insane. My best friend gave me some very good advice - she said it was my job to be my embryos number one cheerleader and that there was no point spending any more time being miserable than I had to. If the worst happened (in my case it did) then you're going to feel awful no matter what and preparing yourself for it doesn't make it any less bad (which was true), so focus on being happy and knowing right now you are pregnant. I know that is a lot easier said than done but I do think staying offline makes it easier. I actually used the screen time function on my iphone to ban myself from FF and only my husband knew the pin so I couldn't obsessively scroll through other people's stories even if I wanted to.

    AFM, I need to take some of my own advice. I can't help feeling like I'm only here temporarily until someone tells me it's over. I really, really want to be happy and to believe it's all going to work out fine but I am finding it very hard. It perhaps doesn't help that it's almost exactly one year since I was in the same position when it all went wrong so it feels like a slightly weird sense of dťjŗ vu. My rational brain knows this is a totally different pregnancy and that statistically the odds are massively in my favour. My emotional brain feels like I'm re-living what happened before all over again.

    miss173 your thoughts on the forums is duly noted and I think I will log off too if I'd fee overwhelmed.  But sometimes its good to be on board and sometimes I lurk. Hahahha!  Anyway I had my first scan and things seemed fine.  Hoping for good luck all around for all the ladies here!

    jenstuttz I hope things will get better for you.  Did they give you any advice and what to do while you wait?

    audiprincess congratulations on your BFP!
