Hi everyone, I was so happy I am 9 weeks pregnant after IVF. I went to see my GP, and in a very "practical" way she said there's nothing to do now until my week 12 scan as the risk of MC is still quite high when the placenta is forming around 9-13 weeks. I am shocked, I had a MC last year and was thinking the risk after a heartbeat on the week 8 scan would be significantly lower. I know she didn't mean to scare me but she surely did, I guess she wasn't aware of what's constantly going on in our minds for those of us who have been having problems to have our babies.
She also mentioned something about taking half an aspirin a day, but then said maybe later on. And the flu shot also later on.... it was quite a confusing appointment, can't wait for my midwive appointment to ask all these questions ( I am still waiting for an appointment letter for that!)
Thank you all xxxx
