7week 2 days scan

Well after a scary week of worrying and bleeding (which I still am) we saw our baby today. We did have both embryos implant and there where two heartbeats one was perfect size for my dates with a good strong heartbeat other was half the size with only a flutter of a heartbeat, so they are certain that one won't progress. We have another scan in a week to check the small one has gone. So it's bittersweet really. We know it's very early days but we feel very happy, grateful and lucky to have our little fighter and to have got this far.

Thanks for all the support off each and every one of you ladies xxx

Hi Button-123. Well, all I can say, is that it looks like one of your dear little embryos is determined to stay where he/she belongs. Great to hear that the heartbeat is strong too. You must be having some weird emotions just now, but we will see what next weeks brings. Have a good rest when you can. Thinking of you. Diane

What a mix of emotions Button!

Isn't it amazing how quickly you fall in love? Our first scan is Wednesday and I am terrified they won't find anything 😓 I am already attached to both my embryos and want them BOTH to have a home.

I am really sorry to hear that your littler one may not make it...very hard to bear regardless of the positive news about the other. I sincerely hope it may catch up in the coming days and that the prediction proves wrong. Look after yourself xxx

Awww. Happy news and sad news too! I suppose if us fertility ladies didn't have such early scans you might not have known about the second little one. Not that it makes it any better 😞 but congratulations on your little fighter x

Sorry to hear about the second embryo, a similar thing happened to us and it's hard to explain how you can be so gutted for the first baby but so happy for the one you still have. Everything crossed for your little special fighter. And hoping your little one catches up too. I was told that sometimes happens :) Congratulations xxx

You must have quite a mix of emotions. Am pleased you've got a strong little fighter hanging on. Am still waiting for the clinic to give me a letter to take to the Endocrynologist or it's all over for us. Hope you're bleeding stops soon x

It's been a tough week but feel more relaxed now I actually know what's happening. Can't believe your still waiting, have you rang them to chase it up xx

I totally get where you're coming from. At least you can explain some of the bleeding and hopefully things will settle down and you can enjoy your BFP.

Yes, the clinic are still 'drafting a letter'. Let's hope I get it soon so I can start some treatment. Just had my bleed since Sat and am starting to feel more myself. Keep thinking, it would have been 1 week of 2ww. Time is slipping away.x

Dare I say it but the bleeding has eased off again now. My gp has signed me off for a further two weeks so I can rest whilst things are still at such a delicate stage. I have another scan on Monday to check what's going on.

Hoping you can get your letter soon and get started on your treatment, then back on track with your journey xxx

Many apologies for the late reply, not been v well, but just wanted to say I was thrilled to see your latest post to confirm at least one embryo is progressing well. As you say it's very bittersweet regarding little un number two but so happy to hear little in no.1 is standing firm and strong! All the very very best in the coming months love and I hope your next scan goes well. Love Sx
