    Default Just a little nervous!

    Hi All,
    This is my first post to this site!

    I have recently found out i am expecting my first child, YAY!
    After years of trying naturally i went to see a fertility specialist to find out i was in the advanced stages of pcos, however we had no luck with any treatments, it was heartbreaking
    July i was told my next step to having a little one was IVF, which i accepted as we really wanted a baby.
    I decided to give up on the fertility meds i was on and we started saving to have IVF. In early August we went on a holiday to see my family up north and had a wonderful relaxing time.
    Last week i realised that i had not gotten my period since July and i did not want to do a test because i knew what the answer was going to be (well at least i thought i did)
    But my thoughts got the better of me and i did a test, well it turned up positive, and the lines were quite dark. I though the test was a dudd so i went and bought 2 more boxes (6 tests in total) and they all came back positive
    I then went to the doc and had blood tests done which confirmed my 6 tests!

    The test said i was between 5-6 weeks.
    I had started noticing i was getting this strange cramping pain, like period pain, so i went to the doc and they were concerned i may be having an ectopic pregnancy so they sent me for a scan, i ended up going to the hospital because my pains got worse and i had an external scan done and was told there was "nothing there" even though my HCG levels had risen as per the norm
    I WAS GUTTED
    I then went to an ultrasound place yesterday and he said the person at the hospital couldn't find the baby because of my severely tilted uterus (which i knew about)
    He found my little one straight away and even managed to catch the heartbeat.
    Last night was the best we have slept since we found out but i have now been told i have a 4mm subchorionic haemorrage and i also have a 2.5cm cyst on my right ovary.
    I'm still getting the cramping pains as well and i really have no one to turn to as i have no family here and my beautiful mother in law passed away suddenly in Feb of this year.

    I have already been told i'm in the high risk category and now this news has just made me sad, i want to know if anyone has experienced this and how it turned out for them.
    Sorry for the rambling!

    Thank you in advanced for any help/advise you can give

    I'm sorry you've been so worried! I'm not a doctor (unfortunately) but is the cyst possibly the corpus luteum? I had a cyst on one ovary for both my successful pregnancies at the start and dr said it was normal. Also had a subchorionic hemorrhage with dd#2 it seemed to resolve itself - had a little bleed at about 15 weeks but that was it.
    Just make sure you take it easy and make sure the doctors explain everything - write a list of questions lol. Seeing a heartbeat is awesome news! Hope the cramps get better soon. Congratulations xx

    Pp is right-could be a corpus luteum cyst, completely normal. And a sub chorionic haemorrhage is quite common. The fact they saw a heartbeat is very reassuring, and once a heartbeat is seen on US, your chances of miscarriage drop significantly. All the best for your pregnancy

    Hi All,
    Thanks for all the info, i guess im just being a little paranoid being my first pregnancy and all the heartbreak we have been through.
    We are just keeping our fingers crossed and hope that my mother in law keeps looking after us from up above.

    I now have to find a good obstetrician out my way, i have a few recommendations so i will look into them!

    My first pregnancy the ultrasound lady said I had a cyst on my ovary and to get it checked after bub was born. I stressed about it until I saw my GP. She said it was normal and she would expect a cyst to be there.

    Sometimes these people don't think about what they are saying and don't elaborate on a comment causing unnecessary stress.

    Since my DD was born I am now pregnant again and no mention if cysts this time. Im sure all will be fine for you too. Take care of yourself and enjoy your pregnancy, it gets less stressful as you get to 12 weeks.
