Mine is booked on 29th.

How have you worked your dates out? I downloaded an app and if I do first day of last period it comes up 5 days more than if I use an IVF calculator

Hi,

I have checked with the clinic and they told me.

You can also use IVF calculators online to work it out, I did and it matched with the clinic.

I have done Clear Blue digital on Thursday and it changed to 3+ (plus 2 weeks) which would make me 5wks1day if I can remember rightly, hopefully it’s a good sign.

How’s your symptoms so far ?

Ah great - thanks for the tip!

I’ve had no stand out symptoms to this point. Only thing is a feeling in the back of my throat like I’m going to burp soon. I had a very small bleed last weekend which made me think we were out but so thankful we’re not.

How about you? X

Hey,

I have had really sore boobs just after the transfer but not sure if that was just because of meds. Little cramping and nothing else. I thought it didn’t work and we were shocked to get BFP, couldn’t believe it.

Now, just a little cramping on and off same with boobs, one day sore and next day nothing. I have spoken to the clinic last week and they said it’s way too early for anything and every pregnancy is different.

Oh and I’m hungry and really cold

Hi,
I’m really nervous about tomorrow. I’m really hoping it’s going to be a good news but I’m preparing myself for the worst.

Thank you for asking

I can completely understand. Let’s keep positive. One more sleep for more reassurance that that little on is cosy as can be. I’ll be thinking of you 🙏

Hi all, hope you are well and hope your scans went well. I have my scan booked in for 3rd May and am super nervous. We never thought we'd get the positive pregnancy test and now it seems so long to wait to see if we can start getting excited. Symptoms are all over the place, one day of nasuea and none since, bit of spotting, sore breasts some days and not others. Some days I feel like it hasn't worked and some Im planning on how we tell people we got our dream. Reading your posts helps me feel like I'm not alone :) x

Congratulations on your BFP!
There’s a group in April 2WW as well who are a lovely group.
Great news that you’re in the next stage of waiting. It’s very surreal, isn’t it?! But super exciting!
Just have to hold on to all the positivity and trust your body is doing what it’s doing. My nausea is seemingly getting a bit stronger so don’t be sad if you don’t have it. I now don’t want it 😂
But I totally am the same. Any time I feel nothing, I feel I’ve I may be on the way out and then like today, I feel horrid, so I know bean is growing 🥰

Thank you! We were so surprised! Trying to be cautiously optimistic but so hyper sensitive to everything going on. Trying to downplay it a little as don't want to be devastated if there's nothing on the scan but it's so hard not to think of a future with our little one :) it's hard to know what to think ha!

Congratulations on your nausea! I bet you are so excited 😍 (for what it means, not the actual sicklyness 😉)

Hi all

I hope you don’t mind me asking a quick question. I got my BFP this week following my second FET. I have been booked in for first scan on May 18th, by which time I will be 8weeks+2. I was expecting it to be done at 7 weeks. Has anyone else had their first scan at 8 weeks? I know it’s only a 7 day difference, but we all know that’s an absolute lifetime in the IVF world 😂😩 I also suffered a chemical pregnancy with my first transfer over Xmas, which I wouldn’t have realised if I hadn’t kept taking HPTs. I would have turned up to the scan and been devastated, which is why I’m a bit uneasy this time. I asked for HCG bloods to be done for reassurance but was told no. I’m at CARE Nottingham.

Thank you 😊 xx

Gemlou - cautiously optimistic is exactly the right term.
My mind is always battling itself.
But yeah, to be excited over nausea 😂 hate it/love it!

HKG - hello and congratulations on your BFP 😊
I was offered 7+3 or 8 for my scan and i took the earlier one.
There is a lady in the April tww group who tested a week after me but has her scan on the same day as me due to having an ectopic previously.
It seems all CARE are so different 😩
It’s worth trying to push for an earlier if you’re concerned. If you don’t ask you won’t know? Sending lots of positives your way though 🥰

Hi LeaLeaAH!
Thanks so much for replying. I think I will call and see if they have anything the week before then. I don’t think my nerves will hold on until 8 weeks!
Thanks very much, and congratulations to you too! 🎉 xx

Hi ladies hope you are all well.

HKG - were you able to bring forward your scan?

I had mine on Monday... we got to see a little heartbeat 💓 we couldn't believe it! Still trying to be cautiously optimistic as we're only 7 weeks but it's hard to ignore the symptoms 😆 (nausea, night sickness, headaches, exhaustion)

We are so happy, and feel so lucky.

I hope everyone's treatment is going well. Thinking of you all xx

Ah you managed to get an earlier one? That’s great!
Did you get charged for your scan?
Glad you got to see the heartbeat - such a surreal feeling, isn’t it! X

No charge. It was normal 7 week date for us. Yeah, very surreal.

Had an awful week since as had a bad migraine and knocked me for six. (Caution - next bit might be TMI) Then today had some thick, dark brown discharge and some spotting so now I'm worried. I don't want to keep calling people and asking but I want to make sure I'm ok at the same time. Even having the scan and seeing heartbeat hasn't meant I've relaxed as much as I'd hoped. Think I'm constantly worried something is going to go wrong. Putting too much pressure on myself i think.

I know what you mean about not relaxing after the scan - I feel you there for sure. Either regards to not wanting to bother them, pls give them a call, for your own peace of mind. That’s their job and you’ve been through enough.
Hopefully it’s nothing to worry about. There are all kinds of bleeds that can happen throughout pregnancy.
But def call them and have a chat with them. Sending you lots of positives and hugs xx
