Hi laides! I just got my BFP this week and confirmed with beta today at 200. I'm thrilled to say the least but cautiously optimistic as well. Like some of you, the whole thing doesnt feel real yet. We tired for 14 months and got our BFP with the 2nd IUI. Congratulations to all of you and best of luck!!!

For you ladies who are in further alone, how long did it take for you to have symptoms. Seriously, I want morning sickness LOL. I need something to make it more real for me.. I actually read on CNN that those who suffer from morning sickness stand a reduced risk of m/s versus those who do not have morning sickness. Any truth to this? So far the only symptom is sore bb's but that would be the progesterone.

Lastly, for those who had an IUI, did you go in to the RE for a 6-7 week scan? What should be expected? Do you hear a heartbeat?

Hello! I got my BFP on 12/4 and went in for blood work on 12/5 and today, 12/7. The next time i go back is in 1 week for another beta test to make sure my levels are where they should be. If you got pregnant naturally (no help with fertility treatments) i would call your OB and see when they'd like to see you. Some wait 8 weeks, but i dont think I could.

I only got my hcg levels tested because I didn't know I was pregnant yet (wasn't expecting my period for another 10 days!) and went into the ER complaining of SEVERE back pain (it was literally making me cry, it hurt so bad). Naturally, once the pregnancy test came back positive, they had to run all sorts of blood tests and ultrasounds to make sure it wasn't ectopic since I was in so much pain...

The hcg numbers ARE re-assuring, I won't deny that - but I think I would have preferred to stay in the dark about my pregnancy for another couple weeks. Knowing this early comes with a lot of stress. My doctor even told me not to get too excited in case it "doesn't stick"!

nah im in australia
i actually had a specialist appointment booked before i knew i was pregnant as we were going to talk about IVF because the doctor didnt think it would happen naturally, so instead of talking about IVF she was congratulating us!
so in the appointment i asked if i needed to get HCG/progesterone done and she wrote it up for me..
