Positive Test

Hi Ladies, I hope everyone is well. I took a break for a while but I wanted to post my news - after a successful Natural FET (no drugs at all) I tested positive and am currently 5 weeks pregnant. I must say the Natural cycle was by far the least stressful of the fertility treatments I have experienced and I would highly recommend it if you have the option. I am a little anxious because I have had some very light bleeding and I miscarried at 6 weeks last time so spend most my day worrying and going back and forth to the ladies to check for bleeding(!) but nevertheless so far so good. My clinic tested for HcG levels today due to the light bleeding and the result was around the 3500 mark which I think is 'ok' not great but ok (I was 38,000 HcG 2 days post 6 week miscarriage last time!) I'm being tested again Monday and I am told that they would expect to see the levels double over the weekend. If anyone else has experiences they can share on HcG levels and bleeding during early pregnancy it would be welcomed for peace of mind? I'm just crossing my fingers that this little frosty is the strong one and we make it to the end this time :-/ xx

  • Good luck 🍀🍀🍀🍀

  • Congratulations. That's fantastic news😀 I'm having a natural FET in the new year after 3 failed cycles as I really don't want to put myself through all the medication if I can't guarantee the embryos thawing.

    I hope you don't mind me asking but do you have regular cycles? Mine vary from 28-62 days therefore doing a natural is going to be a bit harder to track for me.

    I wish you all the luck for the rest of your pregnancy. Xx

  • My periods are usually pretty regular but I only miscarried in August so things were still a little all over the place. What I did learn is it doesn't actually matter if the length of our cycle varies because the ovulation kit lets you know when the clinic should start scanning anyway (be it day 12 or day 24). As long as the scans confirm ovulation and the womb lining is thick enough I see no reason why you wouldn't be good to go irrelevant of cycle length. Best of luck!! Xx

  • I had a natural FET and got a BFP and started bleeding bright red blood at 5 weeks, then at 7 weeks ended up in A&E because I had severe abdo pain too! Had a scan and all was fine, the bleeding continued until I was about 11/12 weeks! I am now almost 16 weeks and all fine. Bleeding is not always bad but I know how scary it is and how hard this wait is! Wishing u all the best!! Xx

  • Hi, I had a bleed at about 6 weeks, then another bleed at about 11 weeks, but everything was fine and I'm now 23 weeks pregnant. Good luck and I know easier said than done, but try not to get too stressed. Xx

  • Hi Ladies, I got my results on Tuesday and my HcG levels had increased to 9000 - so more than doubled! the bleeding has stopped and things are looking good. Tomorrow will be the day that i miscarried my last pregnancy so Im hoping that once I get past tomorrow the anxiety will go away xxx
