Good afternoon all,

Firstly I'm so sorry to all those that have had treatment stopped for Covid. It sucks and I was there in March of last year so I do know how it feels. I hope this does not trigger anyone and if so, please scroll on past.

I have had a positive pregnancy test after my FET and my hCG results today were 1303 which the clinic are very happy with as it's a pretty good number. I did know I was pregnant as I tested out my trigger shot (do not do this at home, unless, you know like me, that it actually keeps your anxiety lower :-)) However I was really anxious about my hCG levels which I had done this morning.

I now have to wait 2 1/2 weeks for my viability scan. Aaaaah!! I have had 2 losses between 7 - 8 1/2 weeks (after having a heartbeat on a scan both times and then lost it at the following scan) so it's still really early days for me. All I can do is hope that this is our time and perhaps third time lucky?? Just taking one scan at a time.

Thanks to all the amazing, amazing people who have supported me thus far. I couldn't actually have even got this far without you.

Ahhh thank you. How are you feeling? Have you managed to get any sleep?! Xx

Masief
Masief in reply to hifer

Ah bless you for remembering! I think one of my main symptoms is waking at 4/5. I'm sleeping but have to pee and then I'm up so early. How have you been feeling symptoms wise? Xxx

hifer
hifer in reply to Masief

To be honest I’m on so many drugs and they give me all the symptoms (cramping, bloating, headaches, exhaustion beyond belief- plus I have to get up twice in night for pessaries, sore bum from injections etc) I can’t even tell if I have any other symptoms 😂🤣. Hope you’re managing to remain calm xx

Masief
Masief in reply to hifer

That is alot, but all so so worth it! I'm continuing my meditation and mantras so chills me out. Just had some acupuncture which I'll be doing weekly to keep everything in check. Wishing you so much luck for the rest of this journey xxxx

I’m okay, I’m gutted and frustrated but I can’t change the outcome .. I’m just desperate to start my third round so I can have a focus! Xx

hifer
hifer in reply to XOXO13

The waiting is the absolute pits. I’m so with you. A focus and a task at least makes you feel like you have some control over the slippery little sucker that is IVF!! Everything crossed for your next round xx

OMG are you serious?? Eeeeeeek!! I'm so happy for you! Woohoo!!! xxxx

hifer in reply to Millbanks

Thank you so much. Was thinking of you this morning. Keeping everything crossed you’ll be in this boat with your next cycle. Are the drugs ok for the cyst? xx

Millbanks
Millbanks in reply to hifer

Aw you're so sweet. You must be absolutely thrilled. It would be so lovely if I can follow suit - and your news gives me renewed hope! I've not started on them yet but I was reading some posts a while back about how they make some people feel suicidal - so looking forward to that! xx

hifer
hifer in reply to Millbanks

Oh dear god!! 😳 Hopefully that will not be the case for you!! I’m so glad you can take hope from our news. Just keeping everything crossed now that all goes well. X

Aww Hifer I’m so happy for you! They are some great levels 🤗 I used the mindful IVF app - the positive test section to help my anxiousness before scans so maybe try it.

Picalilli99 in reply to hifer

We are just currently taking our first steps in the process of DE treatment. Had our consultation and hoping to be accepted on a refund package with Access so just trying to get all our paperwork/test results from our previous clinic to support that process. Then they have said at the moment it’s roughly a 6 month wait to be matched/start treatment. So I’m not on here much at the mo as trying to distract myself with other stuff while we wait. But it’s always lovely when I get a little notification of good news from someone I’ve been following! Wishing you the best for your pregnancy lovely xx

hifer
hifer in reply to Picalilli99

Ahh ok. Very sensible to try and distract yourself. I know how that feels. Keeping everything crossed for DE and great news you have a plan. Thank you again xx

Congratulations 🥰 I do hope everything goes well for you!! One milestone at a time - got every crossed for you!

Ahhh congrats! I remember this waiting and worrying and checking every time going to the loo nightmare!! But it does pass - I’m 23 weeks tomorrow and it seems like a lifetime ago...

Watching Married at First Sight Australia with a giant bar of dairy milk kept me suitably entertained & distracted at that time (and there’s like 30 episodes to fill the time!!)

Xxx

hifer in reply to Beanybeanz

Thank you for the reassurance. Yes I think it’s going to be a long ride! Congrats on getting to 23 weeks. Haha I’m watching MAFS Australia too!! It’s such drivel and yet totally addictive 🤣. I’ve started Downton Abbey all over again! Xx

Congratulations! I know it’s hard when you’ve had previous losses, but just remember that every pregnancy is different. Easier said than done, I know, but reminding myself of that helped me get through the anxiety of the first couple of months. Wishing you a happy and healthy pregnancy! Xx

hifer in reply to Maisie234

Ahhh thank you 😘xx

Congratulations! Such a great start to the day reading lovely news. I totally get the fear regarding every week/scan etc. I just have to manage my anxiety every day by praying, listening to a few classical favourites and getting some naps in the day. It helps pass the time. I also used my calendar and mentally visualised getting to a certain stage... Like 10 weeks.. 12 weeks etc. I have had a scan almost every week from week 7 also as it helped my anxiety. I am now 12+4 days and hoping to have good news at my nuchal translucency scan tomorrow xx

Hifer I am very pleased to read this!!! Keeping my fingers crossed for you fir your next scan. I am going to Czech Republic for FET around 17th February and like you, need more progesterone as a result of ERA. Your result gives me hope as this will be my 3rd attempt I just have to hope my flights aren't cancelled and I can pass both covid tests to get in and out of the Czech Republic x
