Bbliss- I am sooooo excited for you!!! What a wonderful day! When is your beta?

Melly- I am so sorry you have been going through this. Such a scary time, but have faith all will be OK soon. No more bleeding sounds good. When is your next scan?

Thank you ging! I go Thursday, but I called to tell them yesterday and they are very excited I got an early result, said it was a very good sign.

I had a terrible night of sleep, maybe part excitement but I woke up with sharp pains in my uterus that were there most of the night, I can tell there's a lot going on in there, it's just the first day of many I hope but I know how much I worked for this and how it's all worth it.

Did you girls made appointments with an OB right when you got your BFP or did you wait for beta and scan? I'm tempted to start the process right now so I can get the OB on board and its always an extra eye on things.

I waited but that's just me. My clinic followed me until 8 weeks when I had my first ultrasound. I was so afraid there wasn't going to be a heartbeat and I didn't want to have to cancel an OB appointment if that was the case. Once I heard his heartbeat, I officially graduated from the clinic and had my first true appointment with the OB at 10 weeks. That's just me though. It can't hurt to make an appointment and get them on board sooner than later. I agree that more eyes can't be a bad thing.

BBbliss - I got those pains too for a week. They felt like really strong cramps. Hopefully it's the embryo burrowing in and making a cosy home.

I can't really answer your query since mine was a non ivf uk pregnancy. I didn't see my doctor for 2 weeks and had to wait 12 weeks for a scan. No betas or anything like that.

But if I had the opportunity I would have gone immediately - just for reassurance. It's an anxious time. I didn't sleep for the first 14 weeks and now I can't sleep because my bump aches!

Xxx

Bbliss: I have yet to make an appointment with an OB. Heh! I've had two ultrasounds and I have at least one more with my RE next week to check the progress of the hematoma. I have met with my midwife, however, this was before I knew I had a hematoma. The birthing center said I didn't have to make my first appointment until 10 weeks, so I knew I had plenty of time after my next ultrasound, so I'm just waiting for that outcome first. I will have to see if the hematoma has stabilized, otherwise my midwife may recommend that I go to an OB instead, which would be a bummer because I was really looking forward to a natural birth.

AFM: My bleeding has turned to brown, which is good. So, here's what I learned about subchorionic hematomas and it's worth spreading on. Women that go through IVF appear to be more susceptible to it (go figure!). It can happen anytime in the pregnancy, but more likely in the first trimester. I was taking fish oil along with my prenatal+DHA. Bad idea! I stopped the fish oil a couple days ago along with the prenatal with DHA; only taking a prenatal without DHA until things clear up. Those are blood thinners, so they will only encourage the bleeding. I'm hoping the fish oil was all it was, but I won't know until another week from Wednesday when I have another ultrasound.

Melly the brown is indeed good news, thank you for sharing that information on supplements, I will stop my fish oils now, I was only taking them here and there, I'm going to ask my clinic about the baby aspirin I'm still taking.

I called an OB and they were going to put me in right away but when I said IVF they said they would see me after they release me, I shouldn't have said anything, I really don't mind the extra tests for reassurance, besides my insurance will cover all my OB visits and I pay out of pocket for RE. So they gave me an appointment for June 20th at 8wks, it's also my sister's due date so I won't forget

I tested again this morning and what a relief to see a darker line! And the stabbing pain is still here on and of now, I take any symptom as a good sign
