I remember it saying that you needed to test so many weeks after baby is born - no one contacted me after Oliver arrived so I e-mailed Sheffield and they sent out a test pot etc, which I sent back and thought that would be the end of it, but they sent me another kit? I freaked out a bit and did a preg test - BFN. So I'm puzzled why they need to keep testing? Any ideas?

Hope you are all well
This is what Charing Cross do:



Information for Patients with Molar Pregnancies or Choriocarcinoma
The timetable of the hCG follow-up

After treatment stops: - serum and urine samples weekly for six weeks.
At six weeks after treatment: - a final check-up and ultrasound
Year 1 - months 0 - 6 --- Two-weekly blood and urine
Year 1 - months 7 -12 --- Two-weekly urine
Year 2 --- Monthly urine
Year 3 --- Two-monthly urine
Year 4 --- Three-monthly urine
Year 5 --- Four-monthly urine
Year 6 and for life --- Six-monthly urine

Similarly to the information above for women who didn't need treatment, patients who have been treated for molar pregnancy, will have urine and blood hCG testing 6 and 10 weeks after the delivery of any future children.




Hope this helps!

I'm on monthly urine now

Thanks hun

I'm absolutely over the moon & excited, but at the same time a little nervous about my first scan, in a couple of weeks.

I have a good feeling this time though, so I hope all is well in there... finally!

Ohhh fab news about your HCG Jamaris, you are almost there!!

Thanks so much for the congrats ladies. It seem to be sticking so far. I'm still a bit on edge, as my first BFP after the molar ended up as an early MC.

10 more sleeps until my scan!! You'd think I'd have more patience by now, especially after going through the molar/chemo & the forced WTT, but I don't!!! It's driving me crazy not knowing if things are OK or not! So far this pregnancy has been almost exactly the same as the PMP, so I hope that's not a bad sign

I know it doesnt feel like it at the time, but your all clear does come round quicker than you'd imagine. If you had no probs before then I'm sure you will get pregnant again in the same sort of time span

Do you have children already?

I fell with the PMP after about 6 TTC cycles. It took 17 TTC cycles this time, but OH does have a low count.
I was also on my first round of clomid, prescribed to get me ovulating more than one egg

I'm really hoping this will be the one, as I'm 34 after xmas & had planned on having at least one baby already by now! xx

Kate I'm really well thankyou that's great about your HCG level! And a really good sign that your period is back - I hope you are feeling okay As far as I know PMP / MP doesn't affect your fertility in any way so hopefully you will be lucky and fall quickly again! Dan-O is right - your all clear really will come quickly It feels like forever at the time but looking back, gosh it went quick!

Dan-O When I was pregnant with Oliver it was very much silimar to my PMP. I got morning sickness etc the same, sore boobs, lots of the same symptoms. It was very worrying at the time I did feel much better after my first scan and seeing the heartbeat. I had a private scan at 9 weeks because I was all worried again - that really was money well spent! Its hard to believe that that little flutter turned into Oliver!!!!!!!!!!

I don't know much about Clomid but with it working to get you ovulating more than one egg does that put your chances of conceiving twins up?
