Hello!  I had my transfer on 20 January.  BFP via urine test on 1 Feb, confirmed by blood tests taken on 3 and 5 Feb.  Waiting for my first scan on 19 Feb now.  Due date 10/10/2018 (if it's a singleton - two embryos were transferred so we find out on Monday).  I'd like to stay on this thread please!

Wow - naturally conceived identical twins!  Congrats!!  So reading everyone's history, none of this is our first pregnancy is it?  I already have a 15 year old son and a 7 year old daughter.  Looking forward to travelling this journey with you.  Personally speaking, I'm utterly wrecked and craving beige food - nuggets, chips and processed cheese slices!  How are you lot feeling? xxx

Is everyone paying privately/using their clinic for the dating scan?
I am hoping I can use the EPU at my hospital, but not sure yet what to say.
Have a GP appointment on 20/2 and hope to ask my GP for a referral due to 2 previous miscarriages x

My clinic scanned me at 7 weeks and my dating scan is with the NHS and was arranged by he midwife after my booking appointment.  I am classed as high risk for everything, age, ivf, 2 previous miscarriage and have had a loop excision procedure and I'm just getting scans at the same time as everyone else.  I am gettind dual care so I see a consultant as well as my midwife appointments.

I know expatmum2! Crazy isn't it? I'm still in shock. It feels too good to be true! This is my 5th pregnancy of 4 natural and 1 IVF. How lovely that you already have two children. :)

I'm similar to you - all I want is cheese and potatoes or cheese and bread!

Congrats tarapt.

I've been using the NHS EPU BroodyChick as I had a silent miscarriage last September. Originally our first early scan was going to be 19th Feb but we had an emergency one a week and a bit ago as I had bright red blood one day when I wiped. I'm having scans every two weeks at the mo but that's because it's twins. I hope they agree to see you early too as this is such a tough thing when you've had previous miscarriages.

If scan goes well with our ACS unit for 8week scan we will get discharged from them to midwife but not phoned for booking scan yet as told to wait until discharged xx
Hope everyone well xx

Congratulations Opossum. :)

How are you getting on Mrsfergie83?

AFM - Things have changed a bit. Last Thurs a few of my pregnancy symptoms disappeared and I got suspicious. I took 3 tests and the lines were coming up much weaker. I had an emergency scan at the EPU and they couldn't find one of the twins. The sonographer said there is a chance that it's hidden behind the other. He kept thinking he could see a second heartbeat but was not sure if it was part of twin 1. I have been warned to prepare for the worst but hope for the best. Sadly my test lines seem to be getting weaker by the day, so despite twin 1 measuring above what it should and having a very strong heartbeat it's looking like I might lose both. 😥 Next scan is on Wed. xx

Oh Jess, fingers crossed for you for Wednesday.

Welcome Opossum and congratulations!

Broodychick, hope you go on okay at the GP tomorrow.

How you doing Tarapt?

I had my scan today.  I'm 6 weeks 2 days and there was one heartbeat (from two embryos transferred on day 2).  The size was at it should be, so in theory everything is okay.  I was reassured for about an hour and then I started bleeding, thin brown blood.  Am hoping it's just because she was rooting around "up there" for the scan.  But also have been feeling sick as a dog for days and suddenly fancied eating again tonight.  Although that might have been after seeing a heartbeat feeling a duty to do all I can to nourish it!  Or the sickness could also have been a bit anxiety related too.  Anyway, our next scan is 15 March so I just have to keep everything crossed until then.  I keep thinking after each stage, I'll be reassured or convinced that all will be okay, but it never turns out to be the case!

Love to you all xxx

Hello everyone.

Hope you are all Ok, and time to next scans is going quickly.

I would like to join this board. I had two day 5 embryos transferred on 17th Jan. I had one big episode of bleeding early on, so had a 6 week scan and found out I was pregnant with twins (two separate sacs). I am now 7w and 4 d. I have a repeat scan on Friday at the EPU(8w).

I have been trying for a baby for such a long time, I thought I would be so excited when I got my first BFP. As soon as I got my BFP I was nothing but anxious and now I feel so rough that all I can think is 'what have I done, how am I ever going to be well enough to cope with twins'!!! I hope this goes soon as I can start to be excited.

Wishing good luck and happy healthy pregnancies to us all. xx

Hi Pigs, those thoughts are totally normal - I have been so anxious since the start of this procedure and I'm feeling so bloody awful at the moment I can't imagine ever feeling well again and like I've not even enough energy to lift my head up let alone care for the thing growing inside me!  You'll be amazed at how different you feel at 12 weeks though when the hormones calm down.  Hang on in there.  It will get better.  Promise.

Hi Jess, sorry you are going though all this stress. Google hook effect, I've found a couple of links below but I'll let you make your own mind up. this could be why your lines are faint. try diluting your urine and try again.

Everything crossed for Wednesday.

hope everyone else is ok.
Well my mind is totally blown with this tarapt!!! I need to upload a pic to show you but I can't seem to work out how to do it! So I've uploaded it here - https://ukivfblog.blogspot.co.uk/2018/02/7-weeks-pregnant-hook-effect.html

Thanks expatmum2. Not long to wait until my scan now. Only about 18 hours! Lol. To reassure you, I've had thin brown blood every time I've wiped since being pregnant. The EPU told me it's perfectly normal, especially after having internal scans. I feel exactly the same as you though and I'm not relaxed for long.

Congrats on your twins Pigs. I'm also pregnant with twins so I know how you feel. It's very overwhelming, although I don't worry about how I'll cope. I just worry about something going wrong!

Hi ladies, may I join you please? I had one little embie transferred in January and I am now 6+3 💜

Jessica I read your post yesterday and thought it would be the hook effect for you, fab to see the photos to show it! Hope you’re breathing easier today xxx

Expatmum I also had brown spotting the morning after my scan last week. The junior doctor couldn’t find my right ovary (because she was zoomed all the way in 🤦‍♀️) so really whacked me with the probe, so I’m hoping that it was just from my cervix. It had settled by the evening thankfully touch wood xx

Pigs I agree that your feelings are normal. And as for coping, you will just find a way :) just take it a day at a time at the moment xxx

I’ve got the morning, afternoon and evening sickness. Thank goodness I have an afternoon off, not sure how the rest of the working week is going to go! Xx
