Good news at 12 week scan πŸŒˆπŸŽ‰

β€’48 Replies

Finally feel like I can relax after seeing a very relaxed baby today. πŸ˜€. In fact baby was so relaxed the Sonographer was unable to get the measurements she needed for the Down syndrome test. We will get a blood test at 16 weeks instead. She did warn me not to be surprised if my results come back high risk due to my age .... (44) Anyway am not worrying anymore. Want to celebrate and enjoy from now on.

I cannot thank you guys enough for the ongoing support πŸ€—

Absolutely over the moon with today’s scan am so happy and feel very very lucky πŸŒˆπŸŽ‰

Congratulations πŸŽ‰ so pleased it was all good for you. I'm two weeks away from my 12 week scan and anxious doesn't even come close, I'm terrified, but also want to push time forward so the day comes much worry and anxiety during this time, I'm so pleased for you and it's great you're now feeling more relaxed. Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy πŸ’•

I'm also on catch up, 2 weeks til my 12 week scan. Time goes so slow!!!Congrats to you Hope76, must be such a relief to get to this milestone. Well done 😁

So pleased for you and that the scan was all positive πŸŽ‰πŸΎπŸ’ͺ xx

Yay! This is such wonderful news. Hope you have a straight forward and healthy rest of pregnancy lovely xx ❀️


huge congratulations, a big relief to pass this big milestone. I was considered higher risk for chromosomes due to me age ( will be 39 having this baby) but all came back low risk. I hope you can now enjoy the pregnancy & feel excited about the baby ( I couldn’t until I had the dating scan!) xxx

Brilliant! Knew you would be fine and what a great reminder for us over 40s that miracles do happen. xxx

Hi hun I’m very happy that u and baby r doing well . I took your advice about ubiquinol and now is 3rd months while I’m taking two tablets a day.

If u don’t mind me asking hun did u still was taking ubiquinol after transfer and if was any other supplements to took when u was on 2ww ? Xx

Hey hun, sorry to intrude your conversation πŸ˜ƒjust wanted to say that my clinic asked me to stop it the day before embryo transfer! Hope you’re well xxx

Hope76 in reply to Olivia1980xxx

Thank you, can hardly believe am 20 weeks on Wednesday. Passing so quickly , my next scan is on the 16th,counting the days 😘

That’s great you are taking Ubiquinol I really hope it works it’s magic for you πŸ€žπŸΌπŸ™πŸ»πŸ€

After a lot of research and even speaking to Zita West Customer Services who sell ubiquinol I took their advice and kept taking 200mg per day during the 2ww. I stopped as soon as I got my BFP πŸ‘

Olivia1980xxx in reply to Hope76

Thank u hun for replay.

I will leave then folic acid and continue with ubiquinol .

Wow 20 weeks all ready ...time goes so kwik.

I had my transfer Saturday gone and my OTD is on the same what your scan hun 16 dec ☺️ xx

Hope76 in reply to Olivia1980xxx

Sorry I should’ve mentioned I continued also with my folic acid/vitamin d throughout, still taking it now as it’s in my pregnancy vitamins from my midwife.

Wishing you all the luck in the world. Really hoping we both get good news in 16th. Keep me updated xxxx

Olivia1980xxx in reply to Hope76

Thank u hun .

After 4 unsuccessful last cycles loosing 5 embryos is so hard to stay positive and not to think πŸ˜”

I don’t even know how should I keep my mind busy. I just hope for this time ...πŸ™πŸ™

Good luck xxxx

ashalez in reply to Hope76

Congratulations I hope you continue your pregnancy happy and healthy,Can I ask you when you strat taking ubiquinol200mg after tranfer(during two weeks) or before transfer and why you stop as soon as you got BFP,Apologies I'm asking you a lot.

I had FET last month today is my OTD unfortunately it was negative although I don't have any fertility issue me and husband both are healthy,we are doing IVF bc our children have mitochondria disease,I'm taking folic acid,multivitamins, vitamin d,vitamins E,magnesium tablet.

Hope76 in reply to ashalez

Thank you, I took ubiquinol for around 6 months before transfer. I stopped taking it when I got pregnant as advised by the Zita West Clinic customer services. Plus research which basically states there is not enough studies to say whether taking ubiquinol does any harm or not while pregnant. It’s unlikely but as it’s a grey area best to stop. Ubiquinol is thought to help with egg quality as well as implantation so I don’t see the point anyway taking it once pregnant.

Am sorry to hear your FET failed, I had a good few failures before I fell pregnant this time...5 to be precise so I know how crap it is. Wishing you lots of luck going forward 🀞🏼

You deserved this time😘😘😘 you have been through alot so happy for you😘😘😘

Lovely news! Xoxo

Hi Hope, congratulations for the good news! I saw on your timeline that you get more or less 100% fertilisation most time. I get very low rate, and often zero fertilisation. Do you know what helps you to achieve this amazing rate?

Hope76 in reply to Lilly12255

Thank you. Yes we have never had much issue with fertilisation. My parters sperm was always deemed as normal. Have you tried asking for more tests on the sperm to see if there is an underlying issue? So sorry you sometimes get zero that is not good. One thing we did on our last ever go was out my partner on ubiquinol for a month before egg/sperm collection. Not sure if it made a difference but worth a shot as meant to help with quality for eggs and sperm.

Lilly12255 in reply to Hope76

I read in your profile that you had embryos deemed not viable. May I ask what makes these embryos non viable?

Hope76 in reply to Lilly12255

Sure, The embryologist advised they did not pass their criteria for transfer. The grade wasn’t good enough. For example on my last cycle we had 2 embryos, 1 was top grade which we transferred. The other was not suitable at all as only divided into 4 cells by day 3. They kept it until day 5 however there was no more growth.
