Hello All,

Im 34..and had my first IVF BFN in Nov 2016

On 19th June 2017, FET Day 5, 2 blasto were transferred.
2ndJuly BFP Beta HCG was 900 which became 2400 in 48 hrs and 8K+ in 6 days. First scan on 17th Monday.
i have a lot many questions nd im getting vry anxious.

1) im getting some cramps now on left lower abdomen. is this normal and nothin to worry.
2) I dont get anything like morning sickness
3) Having beta hcg positive mean there is definetly a baby growing inside?
4) what r the symptoms of miscarriage?
5) wat precautions should be taken

Kepper- Any news of how many babies you have got growing in there? When will you find out if you have 1 or 2 or 3 LOL

Star- OTD is Wed July 19 I am holding out for that! No testing early over here!
How are you doing?

Mnelson- How are you feeling with the OHSS? Hope you are doing well.

KJW- Yay for no food aversions! Glad you are feeling good!

Koj- Thank you!!!!

Dogmommy- How are you doing sweetie?


AFM- I just called the RE, and I have great news! We have 5 FIVEEEE freezer babies! My RE only freezes embryos that are a certain grade so I know they are all good quality embabies! I screamed on the phone with joy but the nurse didn't seem really amused LMFAO. So thrilled because that means we have at the least 3 more FETs that I can do in the future!

I am 3dpt5dt. Will not be testing early here. When I got a BFP last time I didn't get it until about 14dpo so there is no point in making myself angry lol

Hi babybump, congratulations on your bfp, cramps and aches are normal but speak to your dr for reassurance if you need to, I didn't have morning sickness at first and about 6 weeks started feeling nauseous but haven't actually been sick, unfortunately I've had a positive beta but baby didn't develop, the chances of everything being fine are higher though so please try not to worry, I got my bfp after that cycle

Hope all goes well, when is your first scan?

Ashley, wow great news!! Congratulations, I'm good thank you, had a scan Tuesday 9w5d measuring a day ahead and all good , good luck on its, not long to go!

Ashley congrats that's amazing!! Can't wait till the 19th! Keeping everything crossed for you!

Babybumpmom I have plenty of cramps. I also have endometriosis so it comes with the territory. Like star said an hcg doesn't necessarily mean a baby. Your ultrasound on Monday should give you some information. watch out for bright red bleeding and strong cramps. Call Dr right away. I had one day of morning sickness and it never came back.

Scooby glad to hear your appt went well!

How's everyone else doing?

AFM 8 weeks today. At yesterday's ultrasound baby measured at 8week1day and hb was 180bpm. But they said they saw blood so I might bleed again or it may resolve itself. After googling I learned it's called subchoronic hematoma (sp) sounds bad but ultrasound tech said happens with ivf. I have to go back in a week to check it.

ash- Congrats on being PUPO!!! And five frosties is AMAZING! I loved the pictures of our embies too, I even sent them to family & close friends lol. You're so good for waiting until OTD. I hope you have an easy 2WW and take good care of yourself. Best of luck for Wednesday!

kj- I'm in the process of trying to wean off of the progesterone again. Truth be told, I'm so done with it and needles in general. Numbers were great last Friday but lower on Wednesday, and I had blood drawn (again) this morning after a 2 day break from shots. So fingers crossed all looks good! I'm glad you're still feeling pretty good and hope you have any easy first trimester!

babybump- Congrats and welcome! Your HCG levels look good and are doubling normally, so try not to worry too much at this point. Cramps are totally normal as long as they aren't accompanied by blood. Hope your scan on Monday goes well and you can relax a bit

dogmommy- Hooray for a good scan! SCH is SUPER common in IVF pregnancies. To be honest, I sort of assumed I'd have that. I know at least 15 women who did and all of them ended up having healthy, normal pregnancies. So I know it's scary but the odds are definitely in your favor that all will be well.

AFM, I'll be 12 weeks tomorrow which feels like a huge milestone. Most days, I still can't believe that this is happening! I'm starting to relax a teeny bit, and think about things like the nursery and daycare. But we've got a long way to go. Hopefully the NT scan is normal and all chromosomal tests look okay. That's a big hurdle at my age, so I'm anxiously awaiting those results but trying to stay positive that all is well with the baby.

Ashley-5frosties is amazing!! I hope this tww flies by and you get some really exciting news soon! You're so strong for waiting for your beta

Dog mommy-so glad your scan went well. I have had 3 friends that had that too and all had healthy pregnancies. I know it still must be scary to have to go through it.

Scooby-wow! 12 weeks already?! That is so exciting! I hope your progesterone levels come back good again and you can wean off the shots. What a nice feeling that will be! When do you get the results of your genetic testing?

Baby bump-your numbers look great! My 1st scan is also on Monday and I'm also very anxious/nervous. Really hope we both have great 1st ultrasounds

Ashley - WOW! that's awesome!!!! 5 frosties is amazing!! congrats!!

dogmommy - sorry to hear there's still some blood left in there but sounds like your baby's doing great!! will you get another scan in a week?? that would be exciting

scooby - yay for 12 weeks!! 12 seems like such a big milestone doesn't it? Maybe its because of the NT scan. I hope yours goes well!! The chromosomal tests are nerve wracking but I'm really glad I did it for peace of mind! When is your NT scan?? Can't wait!

kjw - yay for your first scan on Monday!! How far along are you now? Hope you get to see that cute fluttering heart

afm - believe it or not, I am in my 2nd trimester..! what!! Time has been dragging but 2nd trimester has a nice ring to it I have a midwife appt on Wednesday and I'm hoping I'll hear the baby's heartbeat again. The nerves still have not gone away despite a good NT scan and chromosomal results coming back low risk. BnB is a double edged sword in a way that I get great support from you all but at the same time you tend to see/hear a lot of horror stories even in the 2nd tri and beyond... Hoping all will be ok

Hope you guys all have a great weekend!!!

Dogmommy,I'm glad your scan was good, hope you don't have anymore bleeding but I'm sure you will be fine

Kj, hope scan goes well Monday! Exciting

Scooby, happy 12 weeks already!

Ko, second tri! How did that happen already?! Great news about your results too

Afm, had a good scan at 9w5d measuring a day ahead, 12 week scan is 2 weeks Monday when I should be 12w4d, cannot wait to get to that point!

Koj-that is so awesome you are in your 2nd trimester!! That must be such a nice feeling!

Afm-I had my 1st ultrasound today and I was such an emotional wreck. I got so scared before it because last time we got to this point there was no heartbeat. Well we got the surprise of our lives when they found 2 babies! Our one embryo split into identical twins! They are both measuring on track and we got to hear both heart beats! 153 and 156. I'm so relieved, excited, and shocked! I'm just praying that they keep growing strong. My next ultrasound is next Wednesday

Hope everyone else is doing well!
