Congratulations to all the new members!


Thank you for your thoughts everyone  :)

I'm still unsure at the moment what is happening, can never truly know at this point though.  My initial bloods were quite low for the DPO I thought I was, but pretty much right where they should be if I'd ovulated a day later.  That may even be correct as I felt ovulation late at night on the day I counted as ovulation day and Fertility Friend counted the day after as ovulation day as well... which is probably more accurate given it was so late at night I suppose.

I had a repeat blood test the other day and my levels had doubled, but slower than my previous successful pregnancies.  I had another blood test today and will get the results tomorrow.  Hopefully this one is just a bit lazy and happy to plod along rather than zooming off... must be a boy  :laugh:

I am very anxious about it all and just want to know one way or the other ASAP.  I will be devastated to lose another one, especially so close to Christmas  :(

Fx for good results tomorrow Imme, You may have even implanted late which would make your levels lower than you thought as well.
did your level double within the time frame? Either way its good news that they are going up :)

I had implantation bleeding at 7dpo and a positive test at 8-9dpo so not a late implantation I don't think.

They did go up within the time frame, which is at least an improvement on the last two pregnancies.

How did your results go Imme?

Imme, I saw your post in the TTC thread. Hang in there.

I took my bra off this evening because it was hurting. Big mistake. My boobs hurt so much! But you know what? After all we've been through to get here I'm kinda loving it.

How is everyone else going?

Not good here, had my ultrasound today only saw a sac that was measuring 2wks behind where I should be.
So I’m taking that as a sign It’s over.. explains my lack of symptoms as well.

I’ll go for a blood test on Monday & I’m expecting my levels to start dropping.

Beat of luck Ladies xoxo

Oh no, I'm so sorry Joliseix  :(  Is there a chance you ovulated later than you thought?  Often that accounts for ultrasounds being off on the dating.


AFM - my hcg did double in 48 hours, but only just.  Unfortunately it's just yet again wait and see.  I feel like that's all I've done for the past 5-6 months with these three pregnancies.  I will be devastated if we lose yet another one.  It will be especially difficult with the social events we have coming up.

I hope it's just a bit of a lazy, but healthy embryo, but I feel at this point it's more likely to miscarry than to make it to being an actual baby we get to keep  :(

How high are your levels now? With my son the only doubled every 55hrs then 72hrs, I think the fact they are doubling every 48hrs is a good sign.

Not by that late :( Oh well I've got 5 beautiful healthy kids already. It just wasn't meant to be.

So sorry Joliseix  :(  Even when you have other kids losing a pregnancy is so hard.  I have 2 kids and the two losses I've had and the stress with this one have been very difficult indeed.

My levels yesterday were 191, and I was either 15/16 DPO.  I thought 16, but probably closer to 15 given late night ovulation.

Hoping your levels have a big jump over the weekend, imme!

I'm really sorry to hear your update Joliseix. No matter how many children you have it's never easy losing a much wanted baby. I hope you have plenty of support.

How’s everyone going? I hope all is well. My insomnia has already kicked in so finding it extra hard to get rest, that and needing to pee constantly plus a DS3 that doesn’t sleep through yet. I guess it all adds up but it’s exhausting. I don’t remember it kicking in so early last time but I guess every pregnancy is different! How many of you already have LOs and how many are first timers?

I've developed a cold, which I always seem to in early pregnancy (3 out of 3 now). Feeling terrible, so tired and sore! Waiting for my 18 month old to have a nap so I can have one too.

Hi everyone. Dipping my toes in here. Just got my BFP this afternoon. My period isn’t due until Wednesday but I just had a feeling. This will be baby #3. Feeling a little apprehensive! haha.

My morning sickness has started to kick in this weekend and from the last three pregnancies I've got a good understanding of how horrible it can be.

I'm going to try to head it off a bit if I can.

My list

Morning sickness tablets x2 -one in the evening and one in the morning.
Ginger herbal tea
Gingernut biscuits to nibble on
Vegemite on dry toast
Crackers
Not letting my tummy get empty
Stay hydrated
Don't eat sweet junk food
Sea sickness wrist bands
Don't get over heated
Be the driver not the passenger in the car


Is there other things I could try?
I've been on maxolon before but it makes me really drowsy and I can't be sleepy at work.

I find eating a couple of plain saladas before getting up in the morning was a must for me and really small snack sized meals to help keep it down.

Hi everyone, EDD 1 July so 7 weeks today. This is #2 for me (2.5yo son). Having a scan on Thursday and feeling pretty nervous... Not sure how to keep it quiet over the next few weeks with all the Xmas catch-ups etc!

Welcome TeaLover and _SR_!

Rhoxie, that list is an excellent start! With my last pregnancy I definitely felt worse if I hadn't eaten much, but then I didn't know what I felt like eating because I was nauseous. So annoying!

Morning sickness can be the pits. The first time around I got all day sickness for nearly the whole pregnancy. I was traveling by train every day back then and I  think I threw up in almost every bin at every station over the course of the pregnancy....and most of the bushes between home and the station. I got pretty good at darting on and off the train but none of the other regulars would sit next to me. One of them even told me that I  really ought to sit in one of the 'special' seats by the door. 😄

Sorry to hear, Joliesiex.

Imme, hope all is going well.

I'm going okay. My last pregnancy (also an IVF pregnancy) I got ovarian hyperstimulation and ended up hospitalised. My first few weeks of pregnancy last time were horrendous. I couldn't sleep, eat or move, and initially had no clue what was going on. Once I was hospitalised I was getting scans and blood tests and knew everything was okay with the baby. This time, I barely have any symptoms, and no hospitalisation, and I feel a bit odd that things are going so smoothly. It feels weird to function normally in early pregnancy! I only hope that doesn't mean anything bad, and actually I'm hoping to have a much smoother pregnancy this time. Fingers crossed.

I've had some bouts of nausea, and some dizziness, but nothing too bad. I know it's only early days. My next blood test is on Friday, so still a while away.

Hope everyone is going well!

Welcome to the new BFPs. I’ve added your dates into our list. I’ll update if/when scans reveal a more accurate date. 😊

Kentieness- how’s the cold? Sucks you’re sick. Already having energy zapped by he growing baby and now a cold? FX it’s a short and swift recovery.  

Anontime- I am also IVF. It’s my first every pregnancy. I had a 5d hatching blast transferred which puts me at 5+5 today. How about you? I was having a whole bunch of symptoms which seem to have disappeared the last few days... makes me nervous. A week til viability scan for me. I’m glad you’re feeling much better this time round that he last. I can’t imagine being so ill, it much have been a challenge.

Hi Birdie- I also had a five day blast transferred. I think I must be a week behind you, I'll be 5 weeks pregnant on Wednesday, two weeks til my scan.

I still have really sore boobs, some nausea and dizziness but much less, however I'm on progesterone, which can cause all of that. Are you on progesterone? I remember the specialist last time telling me that symptoms of pregnancy really don't start til 8 weeks and any symptoms I'm feeling was either the progesterone or the OHSS, but when you look at all the other women in this thread, that's clearly not true- many early symptoms unrelated to progesterone/ IVF.

Congrats on your first pregnancy!

I’m not certain of due date yet but according to my last period I’m due around 25/7. I tend to go overdue though so may end up with an August baby haha.

I’m pretty early along and not really having any symptoms yet. I’m still breastfeeding DD and that’s a bit sensitive but otherwise nothing to note. In my last two pregnancies the morning sickness kicked in around 7 weeks and kept up until around 20 weeks the first time and a bit longer the second time. I also had cholestasis at the end of my second pregnancy so I’m hoping I don’t have that again.

Congratulations to everyone and extra hugs to the first timers! First pregnancy/babies are so special :)
