BFP Due Date - March / April 2019
« Reply #130 on: 20/08/18, 16:46 »
KezV - yes I already had my 6 week scan and all is good and we saw the heartbeat 💗.. I know that grandma and aunt will be so so happy for me! I just worry that they might spill it out to the rest of the family (out of joy of course) and Iím still not ready to tell everyone.. grandma is slightly better at keeping secrets than my aunt.. will see how I feel about it when theyíre here!

On a different note - my IVF doctor wants me to repeat my scan at 8 weeks but didnít mention why or whatís the need for it.. my Obgyn doctor thinks there is no need for extra scans and has already booked me at 10w5d for an NT scan with a fetal-maternal specialist! I feel I donít want to do unnecessary scans especially that there is conflicting medical opinions on the excess use of ultrasound during pregnancy and itís effect on the fetus! Any thoughts!?

    Ask the clinic why they deem it nessiserly and then go from there.

    My clinic just told me To have one around 7 weeks so thatís what Iím doing past that I donít know

    Booked my scan for next Tuesday (7+5). Hungry all day, varying degrees of nausea and now just worn out after first day back at work.

    My clinic basically just needed hpt (although i could have done blood with them). Did blood just before holiday (4w exactly), but only checked results when i got back (was more out of curiosity to compare with previous pregnancy, even though it is different days from last time). Checked them again today, but results were not in yet.

    It is normal for doubling to slow down a bit once they get high. Think it went to about x2 every 3 days by week (5-)6.

    Oh, and nor sure why you would need to repeat scan at 8w if 6w was okay. Don't think one extra scan is really that harmful, just don't take them every day ;-)

    Godiva - I do believe they slow down the higher they get Cos if you think about it like this mine was 10,858 then double two days later is around 21,000 and then double again 2 days later 40 something  by the following week it would be like 300,000 or something if it kept doubling like that and If  you look at most hcg level charts they donít even go up to numbers that high so I think there must be a turning point somewhere

    Hcg is weird stuff... Wanted to compare my to pregnancies (just out of interest). Because of holidays i could not do bloods on same days, but this is what i got:
    First pregnancy: 4w3d 672.7, 5w2d 2831, 6w1d 9165
    Now: 4w0d 63.9, 6w4d 42195!
    Both times just one embie put back. My first result is lower than expected (doubling/2d would have been around 180 at 4w3d), 2nd hcg much higher than expected: taking into account that by that time doubling slows to every 3 days I would only have been at around 20 000 in my first pregnancy!
    Would prefer only one baby at a time, so slightly worried now my embie has split into identical twins... Scan next Tuesday. Hopefully I can then prove that even in same person and embies from same batch hcg is unpredictable in different pregnancies, let alone the difference between individuals.
