Yea Im going to try again Monday, DH is going to come with me. I've never done that before, don't know what came over me. Usually I'm desperate for bloods to see how things are progressing. Will you be getting early scans xmissxzoiex? X

I've already had one scan last week, I thought I was a few weeks ahead of where I am, Doctor suspected ectopic, that's the reason for the emergency blood tests. By the looks of the blood tests I am about 2 weeks behind where my LMP puts me, I have a repeat scan on Wednesday and can have one every week though the first trimester if I choose. Fingers crossed we see something in my womb next week. X

Good luck! Crossing my fingers for you.

I'm choosing not to have weekly scans this time, it doesn't help my anxiety so I have booked my first one for 8 weeks. DH isn't happy but In my last two pregnancies they couldn't find a heart beat until 8 weeks and I was told both times I'd likely miscarry so I'm keen to avoid that, although it is fortnightly scans until birth then.

I'd go insane without my weekly scans LOL, luckily I have a great consultant who I can just ring up and she will see me pretty much immediately, She even came to visit me when I was in hospital with my twins.

The next 19 weeks until viability are going to be very long, I find the scans break it up a bit.

I'm lucky my consultant is very good too. We pay to use a private fertility clinic so I can ring them anytime and he will see me, usually the next day, sometimes the same day. NHS isn't so good here though. Not really the hospitals fault as they are severely underfunded but it makes for dreadful care.

Goodluck Miss Zoie! It's great that they are able to give you weekly scans.
Maryanne it sounds like you have a wonderful clinic as well.

To be honest I'm a little jealous. No one will even speak to me here until 10 weeks.

Could you get a private scan karoolia? I'm not sure how it works over there but even if your not under a fertility clinic you can go to a scan clinic and get one. Our local one does scans from around 30. We have used them for reassurance between scans at the clinic and hospital because scans in the fertility clinic are pretty expensive. We also have an early pregnancy unit at our local hospital, I think the majority of hospitals in the uk do. I just won't use our local one as it's dreadful. The NHS take over my care once I book in with the midwife at 10 weeks.

Hi Maryanne
Thank you and to you!
The injections I am finding can be painful. Some days easier than others.
I have a huge black bruise on one side as I hit a blood vessel last week. It just won't disappear. Was so painful. So hoping that doesn't happen anytime soon
I'm on clexane (heparin) 20mg once a day as my clotting disorder is very borderline. I think it's my killer cells that are more the issue.
So far the steroids are ok but I've only been on them for two weeks just over. I know there is still time for the 'moon face' and other horrible side effects.
Started getting nausea last night. Had it all day today but feels worse this eve. It's manageable at the moment but I know it will get worse. I'm finding it reassuring though.
How have you been?
I am 6+3 today. Haven't put up a ticker yet or updated my siggy.

Yes I'm good thanks trying4first. Feel pretty ok today which has worried me but trying not to stress over it. The bruises are horrible, I've had some dreadful ones, and my skin is getting tough from years of injections but it's all for a good cause. I'm lucky that they don't hurt me anymore.

Hope everyone else is well today?
