**Sensitive** Shrimp Update - 20 weeks

Can’t believe I’m writing this but we made it to 20 weeks!

So many of you have been an incredible support to me and I just wanted to update you all on our little shrimp... who is a little girl!💕 She looks perfect in every way and I’m still pinching myself that we’ve made it this far.

To all the ladies who have been told they have a low AMH, who’s hubbies have been told they have crappy motility, to those that have lost and who think they can’t face another round. Don’t lose hope, you are all stronger than you know. 4 fresh cycles, 7 embryos later and we’ve finally got one to stick ♥️ xxx

Hi KiboXX. So happy for you it's all going so well, and your story gives me hope that even 4 cycles in (or more) it is still possible! Lots of love. x

Thank you lovely 😊 got everything crossed for your next cycle ♥️ xx

Amazing lovely photo!

Congratulations, beautiful scan. I also had my 20 week scan this morning, I was so nervous as usual but all is good too. I didn't find out but am convinced it's a boy. This was our 5th transfer and 8th embryo so like you just cannot believe after losing 2 one has finally stuck.

Lots of luck to you, hope the next 20 weeks goes smoothly for you xx

Thank u for sharing gives us all hope. Congratulations xx

Can I ask did you do anything different this time? We got a better response when we switched from long to short too xx

This was my first short protocol round, different stims (previously was on gonal f, this time I was on Bemfola and menopur) and also we changed clinics. Aside from the change in drugs, I think our new clinic had a better lab and embryologist which made a big difference xx

We changed clinics too and managed to get 3 to freeze also, tho 1 crashed and burned in the thaw so only 1 3AC left which I’m into really not confident about xx

in reply to WeeJacs

Oh I’m sorry to hear that. Try not to focus on the grading, my new clinic doesn’t actually tell you the grades of the embryos, just that’s it’s good! Not perfect embryos make perfect babies all the time so wishing you lots of luck for that little 3AC xx

Awww how exciting! I haven’t really felt anything yet but I’ve got an anterior placenta so she said that’s normal! Hoping it happens soon though 😊 xx

Yeah mines anterior but to the right a bit so I feel him on the left Haha. But this is my second pregnancy to make it this far (actually lost my son at the same gestation I am today - but was a difficult pregnancy from the start)

in reply to bms12

Mines front and low apparently! Got to have a rescan at 36 weeks but she said I might start getting movement on the sides soon 🙏🏻

I hope getting to tomorrow brings you a bit of peace of mind, I know it must be difficult xxx

Thanks, I'm feeling pretty positive. Due to losing him I have growth scans from 28 weeks which will hopefully help ease my mind.

Theres still plenty of time for the placenta to rise, not sure whether mines low or not - they wont say until my scan next week but I didnt feel any movement my last pregnancy this baby has been rolling away at regular times each day for the past 4 days haha. Like he started and didnt stop Haha

Ahhh cute! A little wriggler! Extra scans is always a bonus 🙌🏻

Yeah I’m not too worried, it’s only just over my cervix so it will hopefully move up as baby grows xx

Whoop! 🥳 so thrilled for you xx

congratulations Kibbo being a mom soon and creating this wonderful miracle baby 😊xx

Wow amazing! Xxx

Beautiful!!!🥰🥰 Believe me it will fly by the next 20 weeks😃👍

Force yourself to enjoy your pregnancy now. I didn't believe I was pregnant and wasn't really showing until 20 weeks.

Congratulations, glad to hear everything is going well xx

Great news. Congratulations!

Oh wow congratulations! This gives me hope. I’ve had 3 egg collections, 2 fresh transfers and one frozen transfer. We have no spare frozen so am about to go into 4th egg collection. Maybe this will be our lucky cycle. I’ll be very happy if we could just get some spare embryos to freeze. It’s so nice to hear these success stories. I’m really am very happy for you ❤️

Thank you so much 😊

We never got anything to freeze on our first three cycles but our fourth got us this little shrimp and two frozen embryos so hoping it’s fourth time lucky for you too! ♥️

That it so reassuring, thank you 🙏 It’s also great you have 2 frozen. It just shows that not all cycles end up the same way even after 3 unsuccessful ones. Xx

This is super amazing news. Reaching this milestone means so much for us women who have been through all the heartache. But in a few short months you will be holding your beautiful baby girl. Congratulations and enjoy this moment!

in reply to Rainbowhope

Oh bless you, poor thing! Not really yet, the odd flutter but that’s it. My placenta is anterior so it’s at the front, basically a cushion between me and baby so she said not to worry, it will come in time 😊 xx

Aww congratulations 💞 Pray the rest of your pregnancy goes well xx

What a lovely picture of your beautiful little girl xxx

Absolutely gorgeous, congratulations xxx

Fab to hear you’ve reached this milestone! Half way there so relax and enjoy- your girlie will be here before you know it 😁💕 xx

Ah so cute, I'm so happy for you. I've got my 20 week scan next week 😊xx
