What I have learnt is do what ever makes you feel better if you are anything like me then you will get your self worked up until you see and hear it ! Make sure you are relaxed and when someone says to you to stop stressing and worrying just remember that they only have to scratch and sniff to get pregnant so they will never under stand that all you need is reassurance xxx
Aimze- yes I'm afraid to jinx anything or count my chickies before they hatch so to speak. I get an ultrasound in about a week and I hope to relax a little if I get to see a heartbeat. Not sure if all the regular rules of pregnancy like chances of bad things happening going way down after seeing heartbeat apply when doing ivf. I had a beta last Thurs and won't get results til tomorrow plus have another one tomorrow then Thurs. Hoping those are all good to keep me positive until my ultrasound.
Hi everyone! Congrats on the BFPs, mind if I join?
Had my first ICSI as a trial at Hammersmith Hospital (although I'm actually from the midlands). Had 5 eggs collected and 3 fertilised and two blasts put back. Tested at 5dp5dt and BFP! I'm now 5 weeks tomorrow and due on the 24th Feb.
Have my first scan on 4th July
Symptom wise I've gone up a cup size in bras, they're absolutely huge! And I get the odd cramp occasionally. Aside from that I'm all good
Peachy, I'm 5w6d (according to my own calculations) and don't really have any symptoms either. Except that I pee a lot at night and get a few cramps and twinges here and there especially at night.
And you're lucky you get at least a few more betas to calm your nerves before your scan. I only ever got one beta. Next time I go to the clinic is for my 7week scan. I've nothing really to hold on to til then.
Oculi- I wouldn't get betas from the RE clinic either. I called my obgyn and asked her to do them. I am not sure if it is a good thing or not it depends on the numbers and if I stress over them as everyone is soo different and normal pregnancies are never monitored and turn out fine. Perhaps no news is good news! I see lots of women who have spotting and I have had absolutely nothing and even though that's considered normal I am thankful I haven't. I really do stress over everything!
Peachy, haha.. I was actually thinking about going to a GP or something and get a beta test done there. Lol! But I'm trying hard not to obsess abt it and just patiently wait for my scan. One more week to go..!
Well Ladies I called the clinic and said can I change it from two weeks on Friday to next week which will be 6+4 which would be a perfect time to see the heartbeat...Just awaiting them to call me back to confirm what day next week...
Like you said Peachy, I think no news is good news an if we feel fine an dont have any pain/heavy bleeding we're all good :-)
