12ww

So I got to my test date. It was hard I have had so many bad cramps over the weekend I thought this was it. Not going to happen. And yet this morning after a very sleepless painful night of cramps. We got bfp! I can't believe it.

But as with the entire journey of ivf, with every high there is a massive low. Whether it be waiting to find out how many eggs, if they fertilise, if you ovulated. The waiting just goes on.

All you want to do is shout from the rooftop that you're pregnant, then you realise how important the next twelve weeks are going to be. So now I stressing over the next 12 weeks.

I have to say though. I don't think I could of got through the last two weeks with out the wonderful support of the people on here. You honestly gave me hope when I thought it had gone. Thank you all so much.

Congratulations!!! I totally know how you feel, I got my bfp on Friday, and quite frankly I'm in shock! I keep crying at the utter relief and joy, but worry too! Have you been given your scan date? Xx

First scan on the 25th I think. What about you? I am still having period type cramps. But been assured it's ok and now am being positive I notice them less.

The 21st! I've been getting the twinges, but definitely less than before. Just trying to take it extra easy, feet up and a bit of cake! Xxx

Hi Kaff21. Usually when you have IVF or a FET you have a first scan at 6 or 7 weeks, so maybe check and see whether you can have one earlier, so you don't have to worry yourself for longer than need be. Anyhow, it's wonderful news, so good luck with the rest of your pregnancy, and when you get to meet your little "bean". Thinking of you. Diane

I have an early scan in three weeks, but I think we will still be holding out until the later scan before we announce it. Thank you for your thoughts.

Hi Kaff21. Of course, I can understand that, but it will be good to have the 6 weeks one for your own sanity. Good luck! Diane
