First private scan booked early, 4 weeks tomorrow, 23 days after transfer. Viability scan scheduled next week.! Unbelievable!!!!!!!

Went for private scan, we’re due to Be 4 weeks tomorrow. So transfer was nearly 3 and a half week ago (Saturday 20th) and eg collection was Wednesday 15 July. My viability is scheduled to be next Wednesday. Booked a private just to check if could see anything and see there was no clots and lining was nice and check and thick.

Absolutely unbelievably here is our baby !!!!! I am measuring 5+ weeks and we not only saw sac, fetal pole but the most gorgeous and beautiful flickering of a heartbeat.

N.B. When talking to the sonographer she recommended us not to go through with the scan as we would likely not see anything at not even 4 weeks and to wait until next week as it would cause possible upset if I was a worrier. I asked my husband and he said you’re the strongest person I know. So went through with it and absolutely made up!!!! Heartbeat 💗 ❣ 💓

Thank you all for supporting me through this and last time, there’s such a long way to go but I am in tears of happiness and wanted to share. Xxxxxxxx

Congratulations! It’s just amazing isn’t it. Everything develops so quickly in there 💗

Not sure if you know but If you had transfer 3.5 weeks ago then you add 2 weeks (ish) on to that for your pregnancy so you would actually be 5+ weeks already. You go from the first day of your cycle to work out your due date so it sounds like baby is measuring perfectly! Enjoy your scan next week xx

It says I am 6 weeks 2 days!!!! I am so confused!!! Lol I literally just went from the EC date. Thanks so much!! She did say I was 5+ weeks and the fact normally viability are 7 weeks so fertility clinic must’ve thought I was further along. So crazy!!!! Thanks so much hun. Xxxxx

Half way through your first trimester already 😊 Congratulations and wishing you a happy, healthy pregnancy ❤ xx

It’s because EC day is basically equivalent to ovulation day in a non-IVF cycle.

So if you’d conceived naturally they actually date the pregnancy from the start of your last period, which is usually a couple of weeks before ovulation. Not sure if that makes any sense but congratulations anyway. You must be so excited and relieved 😊 xx
