How is everyone doing? So exciting that we have a few that are waiting for scans as well as confirmed pregnancies! How is everyone else doing on cycles and Lite...any further progress?
Just thought I'd give an update following our scan yesterday. All went well and I am delighted to say that one of our embryos is measuring correctly for its date and has a perfect heartbeat!! We are stoked! The other embryo looks like it split and the two that formed are not going to make it. Such mixed emotions. Obviously we are thrilled to be having a baby, but we are still mourning what life could've been for the other little embryo. One of the two from the split embryo, didn't really get far at all and the other one is measuring behind a few weeks and has a weak heartbeat. We're told it will probably absorb into the other one or just miscarry on its own. We're also told that they will not have a negative impact on the embryo that is progressing nicely. Apparently the embryos splitting are really common with tested embryos as they are so far advanced when they go back in. ( thus the risk of multiples ). We asked if it could have been avoided by only putting one embryo back in and they said that this has no impact at all. The embryo that split, probably would have split, even if it went in on it's own ( because of the stage it was at ). We have no regrets at all, now that we understand this. Our choice to put two back was to give us 2 chances to get at least ONE baby..... And praying that all continues to go well.....we have done that. I'm just so excited. To see that heartbeat was just amazing. I wish we could have done the genetic testing to begin with and to know that there is that little bit more hope.
Anyway, I just wanted to share as I think it's important that we all hang on to some hope. I am still so nervous and praying for a smooth 7 months forward. We have another scan in 2 weeks to check the progress of the embryo that isn't progressing. I will check back in as I like to hear how everyone else is doing!! I wish you all loads and loads of luck and love!!
P.s. how many of you girls are from Sydney?? :-)
