    I think they look good as they’re progressing too, have you got a beta at all?

    Was there a new pic?

    Could it be more diluted urine, time of day or beacisrnthe test wasn’t dry so comparing a wet to a dry? Sorry if asking the obvious, but because I’ve done That Before

    Hope the beta is good news for you , hugs

    I’m so sorry to hear that miss, do they repeat the beta?

    How is everyone else?

    I’ve had so much bleeding with this pregnancy, 2 episodes of a small
    Bleed then spotting overnight, scan next day showed a healthy baby but a smal sub chorionic haematoma
    then tues night bled so much lost a biggish clot and lots of little ones, just sat on the toilet with it dripping out (sorry tmi)
    Cramping too
    Feared the worst, went for scan the next morning and baby still ok!
    Haematoma quite a lot bigger though
    There’s a risk of miscarriage from bleeding so much of it happens again or it could heal and resolve itself
    Trying to rest when possible and take it easy
    Next scan Tuesday for the fertility clinics standard 7 week scan
    Epu will only scan again if something drastic happens again within the next week,
    Praying all will Be ok, the good thing is it’s in front of the sac and not behind so less chance of it pushing the sac out, although this is still possible with another bleed
    So far it has stopped but have to hope it stays that way

    going: I am hanging in here. Being sick and still learning to walk again has distracted me a bit though..lol. I'm still keenly aware of whenever I could 'maybe' be pregnant but life is truly moving on in a sense that I'm not always panicked about being preggo anymore. Way too stressful. How are you doing?

    Miss: I'm deeply sorry to hear that your lil one might not be sticking. Prayers for the lil bub. HUGS

    Star: I hope it resolves itself fast. Is there nothing you can take to help or do? Will be keeping you in my prayers. Bleeding is so scary and I've been there a time or too. HUGS

    Amore: Welcome, and fx for when you are trying again. HUGS

    Thank you Ft, they just said no heavy lifting but I’m also resting when I can in the hope it heals itself, also not walking anywhere at the moment, the bleeding has always started in the evening and gone by the morning so don’t know it’s because of doing too much doing the day or if that’s a coincidence, I’ll update after tuesdays scan
    Hope you feel better soon, thinking of you

    Thank you star!

    So, we officially start when my next period starts, which isn't for 3 weeks, but I'm excited we're moving in the right direction! The actual meds then start on day 21 of that cycle. Still a little wait, but I'm happy to have a bit of a timetable going!

    I hope everyone is well. Xx

    Oh thats good news miss, fingers crossed for a thick enough lining

    Amore, not long for you either, it always feel better to have a timetable or plan in place

    Atm, bleeding has eased up a lot and only had 1 episode of spotting in the last week

    7 week 3 day scan at the clinic Tuesday was all good and showed the baby is twice the size and the haematoma is collapsing and getting smaller

    Hi girls! I am back! :)

    I am doing my FIRST FET this cycle, i'm getting excited! I go to my lining check this Tuesday which is when i need to confirm whether i'd transfer 1 or 2, and don't know what to doooo...

    My doctor recommended 2, but read some research suggesting that more than 1 cuts your chances.

    Would love to hear from you how many did you transfer and why?

    @goingforit wow congrats!! We were going thru the IVF steps around the same time... but i kept them frozen for much longer haha.

    @MissCassie sorry about your failed FET hope next one sticks!! How many FET have you done? and did you transfer same number each time?

    @star25 I see you also did a FET cycle, how many did you transfer? Your last scan sounds super promising, good luck! Is this your first FET?

    I would love to have twins, that is why id transfer the 2 embryos i have. But i think the chances of becoming a successful twin pregnancy is so little... that i may just do 1 specially if it would cut my chances... just not sure why my doctor is suggesting 2 given that research, maybe is due to my age (i'm 41) so he might not want me wasting time haha, but it doesn't seem to be like a good reason to me, i rather do what gives me better chances, regardless of time/cost.

    Would love to hear what you think!

    Good luck to you all!

    Hi Arianne, this was my 5th fet
    1st was dd
    2nd blighted ovum miscarriage
    3rd ds
    4th bfn
    5th bfp

    I’ve only ever transferred one, I’ve had 4 out of 5 implant and although I wouldn’t actually worry about having twins (as hard as it would be!) I would be more worried about being pregnant with twins and having risky pregnancy, I’m a massive worrier lol, if you’re leaning to transferring 1 then I would say that is right for you then you always have that second chance waiting still

    Thank you @star25 :)
    What is dd and ds?

    Hope your current one sticks it seems you are doing great so far! Did you do anything different?
    I agree on the risks of multiples... that scares me too haha! Ill ask tomorrow why he is suggesting 2. I also thought that one at a time would give me another chance to try :) and focus all my energy on one, as much as i wanted twins all my life, felt this could be that option for me to get that. But im also very small so very worried of having 2 babies growing inside me.

    Thank you for the insights and suggestions!
