Blue I have been so good I tested Thursday Friday and this morning.
I have made an appointment with my GP to discuss options etc for scans and miscarriage management etc.
I feel ok huge waves of nausea eating makes it worse nights are the worst. But I am happy to feel any little symptom I can.

I will get a referral for a viability scan from go for the week of Anzac Day I won't be pushed into one too early by qfg because they are working from dates from a scientific point of view that I don't believe I fit in to!!
Will be an interesting week ahead I think!
Bella - Those POAS are so encouraging.
Blue - How are you going?
MrsPontipine - Welcome to our supportive, knowledgable thread.
Amps - How are you going hun?
MusicalGal - How's the Wazza prep going?
Domiffy, Wishful, Flaussie - hi....how is your IVF journey?
Bella, - That definitely looks darker than the control line now ...
*PG mentioned* - I don't think they will pressure you to scan any earlier than you want. When I got my bfp in 2010, I told them I was available on a particular day (due work) and that was it. So just tell them what date you want to do it, and that is it! Having said that, I did let them pressure me into transferring two when I wanted to transfer one, on my fresh cycle. But thats a different story.
And thanks, Bluemarlin and Bella, for the welcome.
AFM, - I'm going for my scan (to check the lining for this FET) tomorrow arvo, so hoping all is how it should be.
Hi to everyone else , I'm trying to read back on all your stories, but in reading so much I am forgetting who is doing what.
Hi to Sunny too, - I know a lady in her later 40's that went to cape town to do a donor cycle and got pregnant with twins on her first go. So best of luck, you must be so excited.

Mrs Pontipine its not the timing of the scan I have taken all I can of there passive aggressive negativity and I won't take any more new good or bad from them.
I have hit my limit of what I can take and should it be bad news at the scan I won't cope with the comments that will come such as when I was told I had a 1:8 chance of Trisomy 18 and termination would be best and I started to cry being told oh I knew you would act like this you really do wear your heart on your sleeve and are so emotional!! Yeah I am emotional I am putting myself through hell to expand our family and I don't need that used against me.
So I don't want to go back the past two weeks the calls and news has really made me feel extremely anxious and I need to minimize that and look after my health both physical and mental.
Oh Bellavista, - Bah Humbug! How can he give you those stats? Even if there was some chance of an abnormality, how does he know that it would be T18 in particular.
I do hear you! I felt the same through this stim. Every time I got a little excited because I was responding better than expected, I would get the "stats" lecture.
Just let me be excited! I'm going to fall hard if it's a bfn anyway, so why stress me out now. I wished that I did make an appointment with WDA for May. But it seemed so far away back in November when I made the enquiry.
Anyway, the last one was a beauty. It was when I was in for transfer. I had 3 embryos and they wanted to transfer all 3 when I only wanted to transfer 1. He said that there was a 90% chance that each of my eggs would have chromosomal abnormalities (due to my age) so we should transfer the lot. But I feel that my body is more accommodating to a FET so I wanted to keep some eggs for that basket, so to speak. When DH walked in he asked him, which kinda ****ed me off.
I am more annoyed with myself that I backed down and transferred 2, because now I only have 1 left.
I remember saying that I wished that I would get pregnant so I could stick it up them. Which sux because that's not why I want to have another baby.
Bella, sorry! This wasn't supposed to be a 'woe me' post. Just that I do understand where you are coming from. But don't worry, when you go for your scan (elsewhere) there will be nothing but good news!
I totally understand mrs Pontipine the stats for T18 were for my previous pregnancy which we lost in the 14th week and the stats actually increased with the prof of feotal medicine to 1:2.
I just can't go back one of the nurses has upset me greatly this cycle and The dismissive attitude because my hcg levels don't fit there expected range for dpo just doesn't give me hope and support when needed the most.
I want to get an independent scan without the bias of what day of conception and transfer and what the embryos should measure in accordance with the date of transfer.
I think my embryo/s are running 4-7 days behind schedule. I had a 3 and 7 cell transferred on day 3 its possible the 3 is up to a week behind or the 7 a few days behind!!
Good luck with your FET hope you get a lovely strong pregnancy from it.
Bella so happy for your bfp and your proactive positive nature, this journey is so fraught with tension, expectations and the big old unknown. Change the things you can, don't deal with those who can be avoided and keep a massive smile on your face girl, right here right now you are winning!!
Thank you and you are so right and it is ssuch a timely reminder that you wrote the above.
