How soon after an FET did you test/have your first scan?

After our fresh cycle last time it was roughly 10 days until the pregnancy test and then 4 and a half weeks until our first scan. Does it change with a frozen cycle? It doesn't really matter I was just wondering if we'd get the first scan before my clinic closes for Christmas/New Year or if I'd have to wait until they open again.

It was at our first scan we found out I'd lost it last time so I don't think even if we get a positive on the HPT I'll be able to accept that until the scan. Suppose I have to get my BFP first before I worry but I'm one of those people that has to know what's happening lol our frozen transfer is on the 25th November.

Hi kittyk, It ws a same wait for fet as in fresh cycle in my case. I had to wait for 12 days fr blood test n for the scan too it ws same wait till week 8. I got bfp last Tuesday n my first scan is on 8 th December....but today I got spotting n worrying a lot...in fresh cycle too I got spotting after bfp n had chemical miscarriage...just praying to god that this time I don't lose my happiness...Good luck for your fet.


Hi love. Thanks for your reply. I know it's heartbreaking I'm still feeling the repercussions from losing the last one. A part of me doesn't think I'll even get my BFP anyway but have to keep positive. It'd be nice for this rubbish year to end on a nice note. Good luck to you too! Xx


Hi KittyK. It should be about the same. It will be an anxious time for you, but little frosties can be strong little ones, so I do hope all goes well for you this time. Thinking of you. Diane


Thanks Diane. I was just wondering because it'd be nice not to worry all over the Christmas/New Year period but will have to see as I think it'll be just a few days too soon to have the first scan before Xmas if I base it on how many days they did it at last time. Suppose I should worry about getting the pee stick positive first. Thank you for your support I hope this time is it and next year can start better than the last few have xxx


Hi KittyK. Try not to worry about your scan being delayed (if it is), you will bring little one up to7/40wks, which I must admit I prefer to scan at, as it gives you a better picture and "numbers". Here's to peeing on that stick! Diane

I was told by my clinic (probably sll bloody different) that they can only scan from 7 weeks not earlier (where as epu at hospital can do from 6) best of luck xx
