Welcome to all the newcomers and congratulations. It's awesome to see you all here
this thread moves so fast!!
counting down the sleeps till Tuesday to see bubsicle again and looking like a baby this time
Thank you all for the kind welcomes!! It's so exciting to see what is happening with everyone!!
I booked my obstetrician today, which I feel is ridiculous because I am only 4 weeks 4 days - but if I don't book her now I might miss out because obs in my area book out really fast!
Can't help feeling that I've jinxed things... Don't even have a scan for another 3 weeks, and my clinic doesn't do further betas after the first one, so I have no idea if things are going well or not!
Trying to keep the faith!
@Kk1982 its hard isn't it, I think we are so much more aware of the process due to having IVF and I think because its been harder to get pregnant, once we are we're almost surprised that it worked and scared in case something goes wrong.
In a non-IVF pregnancy its confirmed by BT and thats it until the scan. You have to book an ob as they get booked up, I booked mine at the same time.
Would your GP do BT's to put your mind at rest? I've been having weekly ones at my clinic but they are all different. We are having our seven week scan on Monday and we are so excited about it! My first ob appt is at 9 weeks and 1 day.
When is your EDD?
I would at least ask ur go for a second blood test, just to make sure your hcg levels are rising. Good idea molros.
So we just had our seven wk scan. Amazingly it's all good! Both measuring smack on size with strong heartbeats! We are in shock as we went in expecting the worst! What a relief though.... Two wks till next scan!
@Molros thank you, I think I will ask my GP at least to do another beta for me to make sure things look ok. I've got my scan booked for 28th April and obstetrician visit on 1st May - EDD 7th Dec! Still trying to wrap my head around all of this, seems very unreal!
@90Bayside congratulations on the scan, that must be such a happy relief!
90bayside that is awesome news
