*sensitive post* update - viability scan

Hello lovelies πŸ’–

Just got back from my viability scan. I was an absolute mess! when we were in the parking lot I started crying uncontrollably and I just couldn't stop I almost told my OH he was gonna have to talk to reception cause I couldn't, but I managed to stop...till we were walking down the hall with the doctor and I started again...then 2 seconds after she put "wanda" in she said nothing to worry about everything's fine! I said what? How? I can only see an empty sac she said no no heres the heartbeat and your wee embryo...I seen it flickering away and the tears came even more but this time with joy! Yolk sac was seen, heartbeat around 100bpm which is perfect at this stage she said. I am 7+1 today and baby was measuring exactly 7w1d! I still cannot believe this is actually happening and I'm so so so so grateful our little bean is doing everything it should. I feel so very very lucky. The doctor confirmed what I read in their pregnancy booklet...I now have a 95% chance of having a live birth! I like the sound of those odds!! πŸ€žπŸ™πŸ’•πŸ˜

Aww congrats this is such wonderful news so happy for you. I can remember crying uncontrollably at our first scan @10 weeks ( due to bleeding) feeling so relieved & amazed how lucky we are to be having a baby after such a long time of TTC!!! I think my hubby was quite embarrassed 🀣 Definitely feels very real when you see them on screen I love it 😍 we are lucky as I growth scans as my son was considered to be small. You are definitely over the riskiest part! Congrats for making it to this milestone πŸ™ŒπŸ» Enjoy every moment ❀️xoxo

My wee one is massive - measuring over a week ahead of dates hahaha but we're doing great, thanks. Pregnancy is an anxious time, which is a shame as you want to be enjoying it, but it changes as you're anxious about different things at different stages so at least there's some variety!!!

Yep, it's a 'little' girl. I think we just have to accept that we're parents now and even when they're 30 years old we're going to be worrying!! There'll always be something new. Anyway, hope you can settle in and enjoy this now, having seen the heartbeat is a really good sign and chances are very much in your favor that everything's going to be fine xxx

I keep testing as still can’t believe I have a positive pregnancy test! First cycle was so traumatic- only got a morula, this cycle transferred 3BB blastocyst. Never been pregnant before, was starting to think it wasn’t possible! Praying to hear my little heartbeat too. So happy to share in your joy hun....happy tears eh 😍

I did the same hun I did about 5 tests lol. But my clinic gave me 3 hcg blood tests to make sure they were doubling and they more than doubled so that helped me get through to the scan. Have you had bloods done? This was my 3rd transfer of a day 6 4bb blast πŸ€— i had lost hope it would ever happen too! I cant wait to hear your good news! πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ’•πŸ’– xxx

Reply

No they don’t offer bloods πŸ˜”. But my sticks are getting darker 🀣. Hubby getting annoyed, thinks I’m obsessing. 3 weeks until 6 week scan πŸ™πŸΎ. I’m so exhausted, and breasts feel huge and sore- but I wonder if that’s the oestrogen tablets and progesterone I’m on. I had buserilin trigger, so definitely not a false positive. Will keep you posted xxx

Hi hun, nope no extras I dont believe in it. If an embryo is going to stick it's going to stick in my opinion. I didnt eat any pineapple, Brazil nuts or pomegranate juice like I did previously. Even had the 1 cup of coffee a day my clinic said I could have. Must have just got the lucky embryo 😁 thank you and best of luck to you πŸ˜˜πŸ’•πŸ’–
