Hi everyone, I know there has been lots of sad news for people recently and I am sorry if this upsets anyone. Just wanted to let you know we had our 8 week scan today and all is looking good with bubs. We got to see the heartbeat flashing away on screen and a few pics. Was a lovely moment. Still early days but I know that these stories kept me going when I was going through treatment.

I hope everyone is doing ok on whatever part of the journey they are on.

Thank you. This was through our assisted conception unit at the hospital. x

Oh right. The ACU I hear are always on top of things, unfortunately unlike the NHS, they simply said come back after 12 weeks as doing any scans prior to that is a waste of time due to high percentage of miscarriages... 😞

Oh my goodness that is awful. We were at an NHS assisted conception unit and from what I have read this scan i standard practice for them. I think it's crazy that it's different depending on where you are in the country. How are you keeping? xx

I had bleeding with clots for about a day and half 3 days ago which turned brown (my ivf clinic said it was a good news that it turned brown) I went into hospital and they did a scan to see where the blood was coming from and confirmed its old. I am now to push my GP for a prenatal referral as you can imagine my state of mind. I am currently 5 weeks 4 days and want to get passed the 12 weeks so just resting loads and eating healthy.
