    Request a scan, then demand a scan.....your body, your baby, your dollars. Not like it is a dangerous or risky procedure and you need peace of mind.

    GDYB03 are you still seeing a fertility specialist? They understand the nervousness and seem to be pretty willing to do scans.

    I've also heard some people say that they've been anxious enough to go to an emergency room at a hospital and have been scanned there. I imagine that's not guaranteed to work however, and you'd probably have to sit in the waiting room for hours!

    So I would second asking your GP - explain how anxious you are. If it doesn't work, ask another GP.

    Na fertility specialist signed me back over to GP for referral to OBGYN.

    I'm in defence - so things run abit differently and can take forever for appointments. And my partner and I just found we have been crash posted.... So 3 weeks to move! Hence why OBGYN isn't booked yet...

    However since my post, I've been stuck in bed, feeling aweful, tummy feels so sick, headache etc. so hopefully that's a good sign. :-)

    GDY -I'm living from scan to scan these days. I'm 9weeks 3 days and don't feel anything either. It's really unnerving. You are able to go for scans every week if you like. I just reprint the referral scan sheet that my fs gave me (I'm in Cairns and clinic is in Brissie so he emails it) and i book it with my local xray place. Have to usually book a week in advance and I just say it's an ivf baby and I've had 2 m/c so we want to monitor progress.

    I've been handed over to an ob gyn now and managed to get apt for 2mrw (booked a week ago) so I'm hoping he'll do a scan so we can get some piece of mind. I just don't feel anything.... not sick, no cramping/stretching. I am a bit tired by the arvo and my boobies are sore, but not as much as the 1st few weeks.

    Anyone else at my stage and still not getting any symptoms? I'm not wishing ms on myself cos it sounds terrible for u ladies out there. .. but some kind of reassurance would b nice. I hear if u have ms the more chance of going to full term. ...?

    GDY congrats! Where are you moving to? If you need some info on Canberra just give us a yell My GP would have been willing to write an early scan referral if I asked (in my case the Fertility Dr did it). So it doesn't hurt to ask. Take care

    MusicalGal no MS for me either (and unlikely to start now I'm well over 16 weeks). I had no real symptoms until my boobs started getting bigger at about 10 weeks (and boy they really expanded once they got started ). My waist got a bit thicker around that time too, but I fit my regular jeans until 12 weeks and it wasn't until 14 weeks that I had to think about moving into a bigger size. I did get reflux but once I had medication then I forgot about it. I feel fabulous and have done since Day One! I think we are just very, very lucky

    We have no idea yet lol still trying to sort that stuff out!! It's pretty sudden so I'm all over the place!
    Who is your OBGYN if you don't mind me asking? (As I obviously hasn't looked in Canberra lol) maybe PM me?

    Hi hun, I'm 9w2d today and I'm exactly the same as you, only add on progesterone-fuelled constipation and a bloated belly so huge I look 4-5 months gone. I've also had SLIGHTLY sore/sensitive nipples the last few days, but barely noticeable. Aside from that, I still don't feel any symptoms... I have been quite drained today, but I think that might be a dietary thing rather than anything pg related. It's been doing my head in too, but I've got another scan tomorrow so hopefully after that I will be able to relax again for a couple of days at least... maybe! Always here if you need to vent about not feeling pregnant, I totally get it!

    Thanks Sariele, twocam and Gdy -it's comforting to hear there are others out there who are still tracking along the same as me, and even better to hear that you're at 16wks twocam! It would b lovely to just enjoy this Pregnancy, but I guess the worry never stops, even after we're holding our little ones! I think you're right twocam, we should count ourselves very lucky to 1. Have got this far and 2. Not to be sick.

    Wave to everyone xx

    Oh and btw Yes i am also embarrassingly bloated. It seriously looks like I am 5 months along but I'm only 9wks and not telling anybody! Fs has started to ween me off prednisone, but I'm still on progesterone support for 3 more weeks. The other day a customer asked if I was expecting a baby! My tummy is actually round.

    It's terrible isn't it?? Mine goes up and down a bit, but over the weekend it was SO bad and horribly uncomfortable. I've started getting the odd dull pain in my stomach muscles because they've been violently pulled out of shape the past 2 or 3 weeks.
