Hi fellow warriors! So I’m in complete shock. My third ivf cycle was going to start as soon as my first period came after my failed cycle in December. It had been 2 weeks since it was due and knowing that a cycle can be messed up after a failed cycle (plus my crippling fear to take a hpt as I’ve never had a bfp in the last 3 years) I didn’t bother taking one. Instead I’ve been planning for my FET and calling all the pharmacies to get a good price on meds! My clinic called me in for a scan to check what was going on and somehow I am pregnant!! Seeing the gestational sac and a little ball inside is so surreal (the doctor thinks I’m ~5 weeks so having another scan in 2 weeks time to check the heartbeat and growth) and I burst into tears during the scan.

We’ve been TTC for 3 years so I don’t think my heart can believe this might be happening. I’m feeling excited but very anxious and have my first beta on Monday. I know it’s early days and a lot can still happen but I’ve never even reached this stage before so I hope and pray it will continue! Also I’m in disbelief that it happened over Xmas/NY when I was gorging on cheese and god knows what else and guzzling wine and champagne 🤦🏽‍♀️

I truly thought it wouldn’t happen to me and was feeling very down this month at the thought of going into my third cycle and also finding out 2 close friends were pregnant. This journey is so so so unbelievably s*** and I can completely feel for those of you who are still waiting and have been through much worse than me. I pray we all get the successful pregnancies that we have been wishing for ❤️🤞🏽xxx

Ohhhhhh wow. This is amazing news. Huge congratulations lovely, hope you have a happy healthy pregnancy. 💗😘

Thank you lovely, it is a complete shock but nervously excited. How is your pregnancy going? Not too long for you now! Xx

Bless you. Its a lovely surprise!! So far so good thanks still a while to go yet but over half way mark 😘💗

So exciting that you’re over that milestone! All the best for the remaining weeks now xxxx

Thank you. Wishing you all the best too lovely. Congratulations once again 💖😘

Congratulations ☺️ lovely news xx

Thank you lovely, a complete shock but wonderful feeling. How are you doing? Where are you currently in your cycle? Xx

Wow, congratulations lovely!!👏🏻xx

Thank you Cinders, can’t quite believe it really. Just hoping this little bean wants to stick around! We think the ivf cycles have just kickstarted my body into what it should have been doing 🙄 how are you getting on? Time must feel like it’s flying for you!! Xx

Awww I hope so too, you deserve this!! Keep us posted!!🤞🏻🙏🏻 I'm getting on ok thanks, 25wks now. I'd love to say its flying but its not however I'm on count down to hopefully meeting our little ones soon.xx

Oh I will. I’m so scared for the beta on Monday and then Wednesday. I was even nervous taking a hpt this morning even though I knew it would be positive! The anxiety will hopefully decline I hope!!

Wow 25 weeks is a fantastic milestone. So chuffed for you. Are you still able to get about okay? xx

Oh the nerves are just awful arent they?! I do hope you get good news re bloods.🙏🏻 Yes, I'm totally fine. Still working full time and getting out with the dog etc. Bit breathless but cant complain, I'm really lucky!xx

Honestly, I’ve been waiting and hoping for this moment so much and now the nerves are there. Desperately trying not to google and take each day as it comes - it’s hard though! Any tips I could use? And thanks hun, hope to have some good news to share next week!

Bloody amazing you’re still out and about so far along with twins!! Also fab you’re symptoms haven’t been too bad! Xxx

Erm, no tips I'm afraid! Just they to stay sane and count those days down 1 at a time!!🤯🤪 It is hard but you'll get there! Awww thanks, I sont know many people that have been off their feet early with twins so I presume this is normal. I'm fairly neat so maybe that helps. Good luck, fingers and toes crossed for you!xxx

Oh my gosh! What amazing news :) So happy for you xxx

Thank you hun, I’m still feeling surreal. I hope the betas next week will give me comfort. How are you doing? Any update on your pesky cyst? Xxx

It's so amazing :) I love these kind of stories - even though I know it won't ever happen for me because of my tubes, they still make me smile! Ah not yet - still waiting to hear xx

Oh thank you so much, that is so kind of you! I never imagined I’d be one of these miracle stories, I have unexplained infertility so I knew there was a chance but just figured my body was all screwed up!

Oh boo, keep me posted when you hear back! Hoping you can still go ahead this month!! 🤞🏽🤞🏽 Xx

You just never know do you! Unfortunately my cyst is producing hormones so we've had this cycle cancelled. Hopefully start again in 2 weeks! xx

Argh how frustrating for you hun. I am sorry to hear that. It feels never ending sometimes! Especially when you’ve had the results from your ERA and you know the changes you’re making in this cycle!

Fingers crossed all goes away and you can get right into it in 2 weeks time. In the meantime take care of yourself hun - get a good takeaway and glass of vino! Xxx

Thanks lovely - it really does feel never ending. But like you say, I'm cracking out the wine this evening!! xxx

Wow this is such special news, such a miracle story 💫 congratulations and best of luck 🤍💫

XOXO13 in reply to PenguinBlue

I’m okay - I had lots of symptoms (abdominal cramps and back pain, painful boobs) around d3-d6 and then they just went which is making me slightly nervous for my OTD. So afraid it isn’t good news but still hoping. I saw three sets of two magpies today so told myself that’s a good sign and that I’m not just mad 🤣🤞🏻💫 xx

PenguinBlue
PenguinBlue in reply to XOXO13

It’s so hard what to read into in the 2WW, I feel for you!! How many more days til OTD?

Hahah three sets of two magpies is a good sign, triple the joy if I remember the rhyme correctly!! 🤞🏽

Hope things go well and look forward to hearing your update soon!! Xx

Ok, thank you. Had a tough couple of weeks for reasons other than IVF! Due to start ovulation testing tomorrow morning in readiness to starting a natural transfer next month hopefully 🤞🏻xx

Thank you, ok, just a recent bereavement that was massively unexpected. It's really strange feeling this time round. I think because there's no meds this time, it doesn't feel real yet! Xx

PenguinBlue
PenguinBlue in reply to Chicky86

Hey love, so sorry I thought I had replied to this. I’m really sorry you’ve had a bereavement - that must be really hard to process, esp in lockdown and the added stresses of ivf. My inbox is open if you ever want to vent xxx

Chicky86
Chicky86 in reply to PenguinBlue

Thank you 😘

I got pregnant naturally after 3 failed ivf cycles and trying constantly for 3 years... Funnily enough, in the couple of months leading up to it, I was was super unhealthy-- takeaways every week, drinking coke at home (we usually have takeaways monthly, and I never drink anything except water normally). Just goes to show, a lot of this 'be healthy' stuff isn't necessarily that helpful!I wish you luck with your little bean, fingers crossed it sticks xx

Omg honestly it’s so crazy how it’s happened. The nurses were shocked in the room! Thank you so much for you luck, I reallyHope it sticks too xxx

Just Amazing x congratulations xx

Maui2020 in reply to PenguinBlue

Started positive but getting nervous that everything goes smoothly as I’m not used to medicated cycles. Love reading your story, that no matter how much we try and control every element, sometimes something amazing and unexpected comes to remind us of miracles xxx

PenguinBlue
PenguinBlue in reply to Maui2020

That really is a wonderful way to think about it. I’m trying to enjoy each day now and not get too worried.

I hope a medicated cycle is just what you need to get your BFP lovely!! I’m always up and down with how I feel before I go into my cycles so I completely understand. Be kind to yourself and keep rested. Look forward to hearing how you get on soon xxx

Lovely news! Congratulations 🥳 x

Thank you Sianie! How are you doing? Xxx

Not too bad thanks. Just trying to process it all and think about how to move forward/make a plan xx

A plan always is what helped meRefocus and move on from my failed cycles. Take your time to process, it is such a mental and physical and emotional rollercoaster. Wishing you all the best for your next steps xxx

Thank you and good luck to you. Have a happy and healthy pregnancy xx

Congratulations 🙋‍♀️

I am super happy to read that you enjoyed cheese & champagne (my absolute fav too) before not being able to for around 9months 😁🥳 xx

Thank you Lizzie! Yes most definitely! Those memories should keep me going for the next few months fingers crossed! How are you doing? You’ve had a bit of a rollercoaster recently with your clinic - is everything moving forward now? Xxx

LizzieBW
LizzieBW in reply to PenguinBlue

Aw definitely and it's just the most magical way to find out. I can't even imagine your shock at that scan. That's a dream come true "what do you mean, I'm pregnant?" 😱😭🥰

Uff yeah we've had a rubbish time of it with our clinic starting & stopping again but I have finally started my meds & due to start stims next week. Kind of can't believe we're so close now and I know the journey has only just begun so trying to keep a balanced mind as much as poss.

You're so sweet asking how others are right now. Bask in your glory right now, lovely you so deserve it 🥰 xx

PenguinBlue
PenguinBlue in reply to LizzieBW

Honestly for a minute I thought the doctor was having a laugh..and then realised a doctor in a fertility clinic would never make that kind of joke and became so emotional 😂 definitely the best surprise although the downside was I didn’t pay her the slightest bit of attention so I’m not sure if I’ve missed something important that she said 🤦🏽‍♀️

Oh lovely, I’m sooo glad it’s all kicking off for you next week - I find the waiting sometimes the hardest part!! I have everything crossed for this cycle. Definitely go easy on yourself, stims is such a hard thing to go through. Keep me posted on how you get on

And don’t be silly, all us ladies on here have been through hell - everyone is so kind to congratulate me, it’s the least I can do! I’m going to try and take each day at a time 🤞🏽✨ xxx

Congratulations. Amazing news. You must have been over the moon. What a miracle.

Same thing happened to me in October after failed cycle. All glory to God.

PenguinBlue
PenguinBlue in reply to Hidden

Oh wow, congratulations to you too! What a lovely surprise you must have had too! How far along are you now? Yes, so excited I can barely think about anything else. But I am also anxious as I know how easily it can go away.

God has blessed us for sure - I just pray it will continue! Xxx

Hidden in reply to PenguinBlue

I'm 16 weeks now and I'm still very anxious. I dont think those who go through fertility treatment ever relax. One day at a time though. I pray you will have a successful pregnancy.

PenguinBlue
PenguinBlue in reply to Hidden

I know, I think it’s ingrained for us to worry having waited so long. Thank you so much Lex, all the best for the rest of your pregnancy, I hope it will be smooth for you xxx

This is truly amazing! Huge congratulations to you and your miracle. Wishing you a happy and healthy pregnancy xx

Savs in reply to PenguinBlue

Honestly I love hearing happy stories like yours :) All good here thank you I had my 12 wk scan yesterday both twinnies looking good and wriggling lots. They measured me at 12+5 not 12+3 as I thought I was. Feeling grateful to get this far. Will you have an early scan? Bet you are still in shock. Happy happy shock xxx

PenguinBlue
PenguinBlue in reply to Savs

Woohoo! So pleased to hear their both doing so well. Do you feel like you can breathe a bit now? I’m concerned I’ll be anxious the whole pregnancy!

I’ve got a scan in 2 weeks to check heartbeat, I should be 7 weeks by that point but because it was a failed cycle I came out of, I have no clue when I ovulated or how far along I actually am! 🙈 if allis looking like it should, I’ll probably get another one around 9-10 weeks too. I’m going to get my beta tested next week to also give me some relief as I think waiting 2 weeks with no clue what’s going on is a bit too torturous! Did you do many early scans? Xx

Savs
Savs in reply to PenguinBlue

Yes I feel such a relief to leave the first trimester behind!! Just want to try and enjoy it from now rather than worry (easier said than done I know). Positive thinking is everything I think. Oh great the 7 week scan will really put your mind at rest, not long to wait. I had a 7 week then the 12. Got to wait til 20 weeks now (unless I book in another one in between) but my hubby says just wait now and relax. We’ll see 😉. Good luck with your beta and scans , I’ll look out for your posts xxx

PenguinBlue
PenguinBlue in reply to Savs

Oh I know. It feels like the anxiety won’t ever go but you should definitely celebrate reaching such a fab milestone!! Thank you lovely, I hope I’ll have more good news next week to share xx

Aww massive congratulations! This also happened to me ! Was waiting to start my FET after our fresh transfer failed..we went on holiday and did everything you're not meant to, drink, eat bad , hot tub, argue constantly!😬😆 and boom! Pregnant! After so many many months tracking and trying and getting nowhere!So crazy how it works out. Wishing you a healthy and safe pregnancy lovely xxxx

...and being told the month prior that we wouldn't get pregnant naturally!! 😆🙄 xx

Gosh it feels like there’s a few of us on here that it’s happened to! I still can’t get my head around how it worked. I told the doctor yesterday I was so confused and she’s like “don’t you know that sex = baby” LOL. I was like I thought I was bloody infertile for 3 years!!

Thank you for your wishes hun, how are you getting on? You must be almost at the halfway mark? 😱🥰 so exciting!!! xxx

Amazing news!!! 🙌😊😍 xx all the best

Lots8788 in reply to PenguinBlue

Yeah ok thanks hun. Its so nice having a break from treatment if I'm honest and doing the world of good physically and mentally. Hubby is repeating DNA fragmentation mid Feb, I will be doing ERA/EMMA/ALICE (and have an appt Monday to discuss) and also being referred for recurrent miscarriage bloods, so all hopefully moving in the right direction and then once we have the results, have saved a few pennies (as it'll be private now) and are ready mentally, we will go again.

Wishing you so much love and luck and really hope this is your time hun. Keep us updated! (if you want to, of course!) 😊😘 xx

PenguinBlue
PenguinBlue in reply to Lots8788

You’re so kind, thank you lovely!

Yess I can imagine it’s nice to have the break inbetween, the mental and emotional side was what I struggled with the most.

I wish you all the best for your upcoming tests, I hope it gives you the answers to get your successful cycle soon! It’s exciting to have a plan in place!! Will keep you posted and keep an eye on your updates too xxx

Lots8788
Lots8788 in reply to PenguinBlue

It has my head wrecked to be honest. I had symptoms and now I don’t? I done a test it came out positive. I have my hcg bloods tomorrow so fingers crossed it goes well x

PenguinBlue
PenguinBlue in reply to Sukiba

Woohoo!! Congrats on the positive test! That is great news - all the best for your beta. I find my symptoms so far come and go; waves of tiredness and cramping so I get a little concerned if I don’t feel anything and today didn’t feel sleepy at all. It’s common for them to come and go and you must be even earlier than me. Keep positive lovely and hope to see an update on your beta xxx

Sukiba
Sukiba in reply to PenguinBlue

Hi penguineBlue. I got my hcg results they were looking for over 50 and I got 39. I’m so upset. They said I can do a blood test again on Monday and see has it got any higher fingers crossed it will. I just don’t feel anything like I have no symptoms and I’m starting to worry x

PenguinBlue
PenguinBlue in reply to Sukiba

Oh I’m so sorry to hear, I’m really glad you’re able to take it again and fingers crossed it will have gotten to the level it should. How many days post transfer are you?

I don’t think everyone gets symptoms so it’s normal to not feel anything! Some ladies on here have had twins and not had any symptoms at all. Be kind to yourself and hope Monday brings you more clarity xxx

Sukiba
Sukiba in reply to PenguinBlue

I am day 12 days post transfer. Thank you I will try my best 🙈 please god Monday brings better news x

PenguinBlue
PenguinBlue in reply to Sukiba

I hope so ! As long as it has doubled plus a bit more ( as it will be 3 days difference). There are ladies who’ve had low hcg initially and then it’s increased v quickly. Good luck hun, I know this weekend will be tough xx

Hi wow this is just great news huge congratulations! Such a positive post to see & a great surprise when you least expect it after all the fertility struggles

Wishing you all the best for this pregnancy x

A huge surprise, I’m still taking it in! Thank you so much butterfliez, truly appreciate your words! Have you started your new cycle yet? How are you getting on? xx

It’s so lovely to hear especially when it happens like this take it easy & try not to worry in the meantime ( easy said )

Yes currently on cycle 2 , had my baseline scan yesterday all was well so started my stims last night X

Yay! Great you can start stims!! Have everything crossed for this cycle for you! Give yourself lots of time to chill and relax where you can xxx

Omg Penguin 🐧 you got me in tears over here! I’m so over the moon for you! 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍and what a surprise hey! Now keep calm and carry on ❤️🤞🏻🍀I’ll be here being ‘calm’ with you 😉xxx

Oh cookie!!! You are the sweetest! Thank you so much lovely!! Hahah it’s funny how it’s just so surreal, I’m nervous everytime I go to the bathroom and squeeze my boobs to check they’re still sore 🤦🏽‍♀️ I think I’ll feel a bit more at ease once I get through the betas next week and to the 7 week scan. So many milestones to get through!

How are you doing Ms 2nd trimester ? 😬🥰😍 xxx

I knowwww still squeezing boobies over here 😂I had a scan today and thankfully little bub is growing nicely ❤️I can breathe just for today 😂I wish I could feel ‘more’ and be happier, but I realise my mind is protecting me following my previous trauma 🙈so I’m not sharing pics or talking about it so much...one milestone at the time ❤️🤞🏻🍀I can’t wait to hear about your marvellous beta results! 😍😍😍😍😍sending love! Xx

Haha it is worrying when I can’t feel anything but I’ve read lots of ladies have symptoms come and go so trying to keep positive! Have you had many symptoms?

I can imagine, I think I won’t be comfortable to tell friends until I’m 16 weeks if I get there. But soooo glad to hear all is going well and the little bub is progressing well!!!

Oh and thank you my sweet, I so hope I have good news to share next week 🍀🤞🏽✨ xxxx

Yes that’s right...my ‘all day’ sickness started early at 7 weeks and up to 9 I had it every single day....barely managed to eat. From 9 weeks onwards I had worse days and better ones (where of course I freaked out like crazy because I felt ‘too well’)....now it’s still like that, good and bad days....I’d like to feel better but at the end of the day I recognise that ‘bad days’ give me a bit of comfort 😉now I can eat more though so I’m kinda going back into my healthy routine of 5 a day and proteins at lunch and dinner.....and very little processed food!!! Boobs were never extremely sore but now getting worse I think..especially during the night when I toss and turn in bed 🙈🙈🙈I’ll be waiting for your good news hun xxx cheering for you! 🍀🤞🏻❤️💋💋💋🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻💋💋💋🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

Aww it is exciting to feel symptoms but I am glad you’re feeling better too! Thank you so much cookie, you have been a great support the last few months and I really appreciate it xxx

Always here for you hun we’re in this together! 🍀🤞🏻💋❤️

I can’t imagine how you must be feeling right now 😍 so pleased for you and wishing you all the best with the journey ahead!xxx

Thank you so much! I am excited but very nervous! Hope you are doing okay? Xxxx

It’s understandable to be nervous since you want this so much, make sure to enjoy the excitement as much as you can ☺️I’m okay thank you for asking. We are hopefully starting our second round in March 🤞🏼 xxx

Thank you!! All the luck for March, that will come round so quick - I can’t believe it’s going to be Feb next week 🤞🏽✨ xxx

Oh PenguinBlue!!!! This is the absolute best news I’ve heard in ages. I’m so incredibly happy for you lovely. What a wonderful Christmas miracle 😁 Take it easy and I hope all goes swimmingly at your next scan. Yay! You deserve this lovely 🎉🌟🎉 xxx

Aww peanut!!! You are sooo kind and sweet 😘😘😘 thank you for your kind words. Definitely taking it easy. Husband has already told me I’m not doing any more house cleaning so will try milk it as much as I can.

Very nervous for the betas and next scan though. Did you do any betas before your scan? How are you doing? You’ve got your 9 week scan soon right? 🥰 so excitedddd xxx

It’s such wonderful news Penguin! 🥰Are you telling family or going to wait? I didn’t think my cycle over Xmas was going to work and had def eaten some naughty stuff too! Just goes to show! Aww your husband sounds lovely, just what you need! I’m not managing much cleaning, so our house is a right mess now 🤣

I’m doing ok, ‘morning’ sickness is bad but of course so happy to get this far. My 9 week scan is tomorrow. Nervous of course 🤞🏻

No, I didn’t have a beta after OTD but maybe they do that to date you as it’s a natural conception? The fact they’ve seen your lil bean on the screen already is a great sign! ☺️ xxx

Ps my periods are so irregular so every time I went for baseline scans etc during this journey I secretly hoped they’d say I was already pregnant. I’m soooo pleased that it can actually happen and it happened to you! ❤️🎉

We are going to wait for our 7 week scan and then tell family. If it’s bad news we can process it together before telling family. Have you told yours,?

Ha, I’ve been feeling so lethargic that I’ve been lying down on the sofa after work - my husband works much longer hours but he’s been having to wait for his dinner this week 😂 once the nesting kicks in you’ll be running around cleaning I bet! 😂

Oooh hun, keep me posted on your scan tomorrow! I completely understand the nervousness but have everything crossed for you 🤞🏽🤞🏽🤞🏽✨✨✨🍀🍀🍀

My clinic have only booked me in for the 7 week scan, I’m getting the beta done at a private clinic closer to me as I can’t bear the thought of travelling into London for 50 mins for a 5 min blood test 😬. It is v weird that I have no clue actually how far along I am because my cycle would have been a bit weird this month and I don’t know when I ovulated, so I hope the betas give me a good indication.

Ahh I know the feeling, when I was walking to the clinic yesterday I had to tell myself to get it out of my head that I was pregnant because the chances are so slim. But here we are. The nurses were screaming with happiness as well, it’s quite funny to think about it now but yes soo happy xxx

Yes, those early days are really tiring, rest up and take it easy as much as you can! Yes lovely to wait until 7 weeks and then tell, I’m sure everyone will be delighted for you! 😁

We’ve told our mums and a couple of close friends, but that’s it for now.

Aww that’s so nice about the nurses!

We had our scan yesterday, I was so nervous but all was well and both babies are fine. On to the next hurdle! 🤞🏻

When do you get your beta results back? Did you do a dig test too or just gonna wait for beta? Best of luck lovely! 🌟🎉 xxx

Aww hun, yesssss sooo great to hear your scan went well and both babies are doing good, that is such great news ! I’m sooo happy for you lovely! 🥳🥳🥳 I was thinking of you this morning and was going to message you!

I feel scared to do my digi..I had some light bleeding on Thursday eve (streak of red, then pink) it’s thankfully gone but I’m feeling more nervous now as my boobs don’t feel too sore and the tiredness is not as strong as it was 😣 the beta is on Monday with the second hopefully on Wednesday! I am

So nervous now! Xxx

❤️❤️❤️

Awh that's amazing, congratulations! 🎉😊

Thank you piggies!!! How are you doing? How did your transfer go? Hopefully not too long til your test day? Xxx

I'm not too bad thanks, bit bloated but apart from that doing well. Transfer went well, OTD is Monday, I'm alternating between excitement and dread haha xx

Glad to hear you’re doing well - trooper! Ah god, I know that feeling all too well. Have everything crossed for a positive for you hun xxx

Thanks 😘 x

Aww Sas, you are so so sweet! Thank you for your message, it means a lot from you. I hope I have some good news to share over the next few weeks. It’s such an anxious time though 😬

How are you doing lovely? I was thinking of you just last week ❤️ Xxx

Sas1101
Sas1101 in reply to PenguinBlue

I can imagine how anxious you feel! I know way easier said than done but stay positive, your body proved is capable of doing its thing 😊👍🏻I'll be looking out for your update.

I'm good lovely, had genetic bloods done and waiting for my appointment with Prof Quenby to come through. The plan is to have all tests done with her first before embarking on any more treatment. I must admit I am enjoying the break from it all! I'm preparing my body with nourishment and lots of self care before we get started later on the year xx

PenguinBlue
PenguinBlue in reply to Sas1101

Yes I hope I’ll have a good update to share but the nerves are there. I’ve had some light spotting so it’s made me even more nervous now.

Oh lovely! What tests are you having done with her? A break must feel like a breath of fresh air - it gets so intense when you’re going from one cycle to another with not much time to take care of yourself mentally and emotionally (as well as physically!!) I’m really glad you’re taking care of yourself hun, and look forward to hearing your progress and updates xxx

This is amazing news congratulations ❤️ We were in the same boat and got our surprise a few weeks ago after a failed FET in November/December. It’s nearly three weeks later after seeing those two lines and have just seen an embryo with a heartbeat and I’m still in complete shock xx

PenguinBlue
PenguinBlue in reply to Goldie24

Eeek wowwweee! What amazing news Goldie! I’m sooo happy that you got to see the heartbeat! So so amazing!! Did you know how far along you were before your scan? I’m guessing you’re around 7 weeks then? Did you do any betas between your hpt and scan? So wonderful that you’ve had this too and it’s growing so well! Wishing you all the best hun xxx

Goldie24
Goldie24 in reply to PenguinBlue

Well I work in a hospital so I rang a colleague on EPAU after the positive test and she had looked after me in the summer when I was in for 10 days with OHSS. I was completely beside myself and couldn’t understand how I’d got a positive test 😂 so she got me in for some bloods which doubled nicely over 48 hours (117 to 288) and looking back this must have only been about 11 days post ovulation. I had some brown spotting so I had a scan last Thursday and had a sac and yolk sac and it was repeated a week later and there was an embryo and heartbeat. By LMP I’m 7 weeks but by ovulation I’m 6 as my cycles been a bit longer since my ovaries were practically up in my chest 😂 the measurement of the embryo fits with this too. The sickness is absolutely unreal but it’s reassurance. Wishing you all the luck for a smooth pregnancy, 2021 has done us both proud so far ☺️ Xx

PenguinBlue
PenguinBlue in reply to Goldie24

Ahh that’s so amazing and v handy you had someone to call to do your bloods. At first I was like oh they’re only on Monday, not too long to wait. Now I’m like WHY ARE THEY ON MONDAY, ITS SO FAR AWAY 😂🙈

Oh my lovely, that is soooo exciting with the scan progress you’ve seen! ✨✨✨

I think I’m the same as you, I usually ovulate around CD18 despite only having a 28 day cycle, so with LMP I should be six weeks but they think I’m only 5 weeks (which makes sense as I’m 4ish days behind.

Ah sorry to hear your sickness is bad, it’s a good sign that it’s all going as it should - thank you so much hun, 2021 has been a delight so far, just hope it will continue!

Wishing you a successful ongoing pregnancy too - look forward to hearing your updates on your milestones as you reach them xxx

What a pleasant surprise 😊 congratulations, best of luck for your 7 weeks scan. Xx

Thank you Linda!! Definitely hope the next few weeks go okay! How are you doing post covid? How’s the little bean going? Xx

So nice of you too ask, my little baby is growing, super excited 😍 Please keep me update and I’m praying that all goes well for you. Xx

So exciting for you! Thank you, I definitely will xxx

Oh wow.. amazing news..so so happy for you.

CONGRATULATIONS

This was just the best post - I read it yesterday at work, but could not comment at the time. This is amazing! 🥺🥰 Congratulations!! 🥳 I really do wish you all the best and hoping for a healthy pregnancy for you! 🤞

Oh you’re so sweet, thank you so much Sparkly! Hoping the next few weeks will give me the results I want so I can breathe a bit more! How are you getting on?? Xx

Yes, it is just the most wonderful feeling seeing that heartbeat at the scan 🥰 Hopefully your beta tests will help first though! I am doing good thank you, nausea is settling now, but the fatigue is still real 🤪😴 Had my booking appointment with the midwife this week. Just waiting for my 12 week scan - should be within the next two weeks 🤞 I am feeling quite calm and happy at present! We have decided to do screening tests, so when I think of that and the scan, I can feel the anxiety! Just so scared for bad news - it is all so new and don’t want anything to take this away from us! But I understand from reading others posts that I am not alone feeling anxious. Aw, so happy for you!

Aww I can imagine how exciting it is to see the scan and heartbeat! I hope I’ll be able to! I’m glad the nausea is settling. I’m getting some sick feelings but not actual nausea which is good - my tummy just feels wrong! Good luck for the screening tests too, it will help settle nerves I’m sure but I know the anxiety that comes with any scan!

Keep me posted with your scan and how you get on too lovely xx
