I'm considering a more definitive test too, Mitchnorm. I will wait to see what my NT scan and bloods come back with and then decide.

I have my 12 week scan tomorrow. I'm trying to be calm about it but I am nervous.

All the best for your scan tomorrow too Tag74. We will be thinking of you. x

Thinking of just going for it after 10 weeks tbh as the results take 10-14 days to come thhroigh....if I wait til after nt/bloods then it could be near 16 weeks to get definitive answer.

Good luck tomorrow tag x x

Thanks guys! I'm not holding out too much hope. My numbers went up only 1500 in 4 days. I know I'm grasping at straws but...

If I only had my numbers drawn at 12 dpo and today (5600), with no gauge in between, my numbers doubled every 72 hours. I know I'm grasping...I mean why aren't they going up more the past two weeks...but I don't know. Rambling out loud...

Tag74 keeping everything crossed for you. They don't draw hcg here so I'm not too familiar, but I know every pregnancy is different and in my time on BnB I've seen stories where ladies have had slower doubling time and ended up with healthy twins.

Good luck for today xx


AFM I swithered over having the harmony test done but decided not to in the end purely because if the cost. It would have meant losing 2 to 3 weeks of mat leave for me so for now I'm just holding out hope all is well. I opted out of the nhs test (although they do still check for fluid on the neck at the dating scan regardless which I found reasuring).

Have been trying to research the increased risk of still birth but there is very little info out there. Statistically yes a much increased risk but still very low and no research (that I can find) on probable cause. This makes it very hard to make a decision on early induction. Pretty sure I'm going to decline if I continue with a healthy pregnancy.

Hi guys! News wasn't good. My HCG is rising but slow and I'm 7 weeks, 4 days and measuring 5 weeks 5 days with an empty sac. They wanted to do a D&C tomorrow but I got them to reluctantly let me rescan on Monday with the procedure on Tuesday if it doesn't look good...which it doesn't. I am pretty devastated. I appreciate all your kind words...and once the dust settles I'll be TTC again. I'd like to remain for the ride with you guys until that happens.

I'm so sorry, Tag. I really hope little bean is just a little camera shy. Sending you big hugs and keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Mitchnorm I didn't realise it took so long to get the results. I just asummed things would be quicker.

My NT scan was 2.9mm which is on the high side but my DD was 2.8mm and is fine. I'm just waiting on bloods next week:-/
