BFP - Due Date September/October 2019

Thanks both , itís so nice to be able to speak to others on here that know what each other are going through. Thanks for that link Godiva , it says mine is in normal range on there which makes me less worried. After my scan on Tuesday I think I may just pay for extra reassurance scans if they do not give them to me. I know that they are expensive but I feel like itís completely worth it to keep stress levels low. We are being scanned on the same day godiva so we will update each other then.

Ivy when is your next scan ?

Have a good Monday ladies x

    Ivy: I have a medical background (this however does not make me a specialist in everything!), and eelatively easy access to fertilityspecialists for questions etc (although I try not to "abuse" this, as it is quite a fine line between asking friendly advice and "medical shopping", to get the answer you want). Some topics might be a bit controversial, with varying opinions on the sense of nonsense of certain actions, or how exactly to approach a certain problem, so asking too many people might actually increase confusion...

    StayP: D-day tomorrow... My scan is late afternoon (that way DH can be there too). Had another wobble on Saturday (long shift at work). Somebody I was talking to (who knows my story) suggested I could ask a scan as a small favour, but I explained that if it was negative I would not function properly for the rest of my shift. Managed to put my worries aside for the rest of the weekend. No work today and tomorrow, and I think I will be able to keep myself occupied most of that time. Symptoms seem to be increasing (ended up running to toilet gagging when choosing breakfast yesterday - a first this preg), but do not really trust the messages my body sends me...
    I was wondering whether to try and get a scan in 2-3 weeks too, to bridge the gap to the 12 w one... Might just see how things go and decide closer to that time.

    Good luck 4 today Godiva. The gagging sounds very positive.
    I was terrified before my 1st scan.
    I too am dithering whether to get another scan before the 12 week one.. seems like such a long wait.
    Xx

    There was a heart beat! Measuring 6+5, so pretty much on schedule. What a relief when I saw that flicker! (After couple of seconds of despair when I did not see very much)

    No news from StayP? Hope it is not a bad sign?
    After the elation of yesterday I had a scare this evening with cramping and bloodloss (red). Got DH to come home straight away (he had just left for a rehearsal) and we went to the hospital (I had phoned them, and they had said I could come in). Luckily the OB saw a heartbeat very quickly (it took some time before I could pick it up) - regular and good speed. There was a hematoma, but at the moment everything seems okay. Have to take it easy for at least 2 days and have a follow up in 2 weeks. Well solves dilemma of getting an extra scan before 12 w one...
    At least I am a bit reassured again for now, although slight crampung and blood loss is to be expected over next few days (which will inevitably cause more worries).

    Hi ladies hope everyone is doing well. Congratulations on seeing your babies heartbeat Godiva, itís so worrying seeing blood I almost fainted as I had no idea it was quite common in early pregnancy (I really wish I knew ) especially in IVF due to increased risk of heamatoma.  I had another scan a couple of days ago this time with my IVF consultant. He saw the heartbeat and played it to me (eeeek) and the heamatoma has reduced in size slightly (i have not had any further bleeding from it they said my uterus is absorbing it instead) I am now on progesterone injections (Lubion) twice a day to increase my levels and stop any further bleeding as they believe itís a mix of the low progesterone and the blood in my uterus next to the sac. I havnt had ANY nausea at all. This still worries me , as I know is a sign of a healthy pregnancy. Maybe I am just one of the lucky ones , fingers crossed. I have another scan in 2 weeks time to check on the baby again. At 6 weeks 5 days the Fetus measured 7.5mm with a heartbeat of 120bpm. Do any of you ladies have your results around the same time ? Every day I worry and hope that everything will be okay. Still seems a bit too good to be true.

    Hope everyone is well xx
