    @faithandhopellove yep, I never have any frosties either. I have been sleeping like a log since I've stopped cycling. No night sweats, no waking up with anxiety. Have the nurses said anything about your headaches? Sounds horrible.

    good luck @Chiefsgirl and everyone else
    Congrats @MGC Bertie !! What a huge relief (for us lol) and for you guys !! Sounds like the little fella is right on target whoop whoop 😆

Quite clear to see the sac, the little fuzzy bean-shaped blob measured 15.33mm, and the heartbeat flickering away brightly. I asked the doctor what the heartbeat rate was, but he's just a temp (as my FS is away), but he said it's definitely over 100bpm as he could tell by how fast it was flickering.

    I was expecting to cry, be emotional and had told DH he would need to hold my hand, but strangely I didn't feel like that at all - it was kind of like an out-of-body experience, rather weird. Very relieved and happy, to say the least, but I so wasn't expecting to feel sort of removed from it. I think it just still doesn't feel real :-)) Thanks everyone for thinking of me, especially those who are still waiting for their BFP.
    Bertie, what wonderful news. I found the same thing at our heartbeat scan, I expected to be all emotional, but I think I was actually in shock. Congratulations hun. So, so chuffed for you.

    How's everyone else travelling? I've been lurking & reading/cheering along from the sidelines.

    Leyshoja, I'm so sorry you had to go through such a complicated loss. It just seems the ultimate in cruelty that we go through so much trauma to get pregnant, only to have to go through more. I ended up in hospital with a bad miscarriage before my son. I bled for a long time & it took months for my HCg to come down, so we weren't even able to cycle straight away. I feel for you.

But I think part of being on these forums is being honest about what we are going through and that includes mental health and the stress that ivf, and all that comes with it, puts on us. It is tough and I think it is Ok to say when you need help and right now I definitely do. If anything I hope that by speaking out about it, about how it can take you to a really dark place, others will feel more inclined to talk openly also. Even if it is just with others who are going through the same process here on bh.
    @Skyler I start stimming on Wednesday but am not sure now when my transfer will be. The day clinic where our embryologist works is being renovated so they want to move all embryos, , sperm etc to another clinic 2 hrs away to prevent contamination from fumes etc. This means they have to do a freeze all but as I have never had good enough quality to freeze (fresh transfers only) I am worried about what this means for me. So it is a wait and see what I get. .. they said worst case scenario is that they collect and transfer to the other clinic for fertilisation, then bring them back for transfer at a few days. Other option is to do frozen and transfer a few weeks later. So more waiting waiting. ..just to add to the anxiety levels! Fingers crossed we get some nice embies. Xx

    Has anyone heard how Bertie went with her scan today? Hoping that no news is good news?

    Fudge, particularly thinking about you, in fact I haven't been able to get you off my mind. Once again, I am so sorry for your loss. Wishing you a stress free cycle coming up, where everything runs like a dream.

    Oh I hope not for you guys, I'm not sure how common it is for HCG to take so long to come down. It was so frustrating. I had the miscarriage in June & couldn't cycle again till December. It's weird because you usually hope for it to go up, but this is the one time I was waiting for it to go down. Good luck tomorrow xx

    Just checked on all updates and so glad to hear that all is going well for @McGBertie, very happy for you!!!
    @Chiefsgirl – fingers cross, hope this one go well.

    I got nothing new to report, waiting for my cyst to ‘deflate’ so I can go back on wheel again.

    Wow such a great bunch of strong, wise women in this thread!

    Very happy for you @MGC Bertie and have everything crossed that everything continues on as it is supposed to. I've never seen a heartbeat, so I don't know what I'd do - I'm usually balling my eyes out before I even get on the table for a scan, so I guess that would be me again. Can't see that changing if I get another BFP! I think I'd fall off the table in shock if there was a heartbeat!

    Sorry that you're having such a rough time @leyshoja, I'd just get hubby on the job right now and BD, might as well give it a shot and you can always clean him up after if it's a bit messy, lol :-)

    Fingers crossed for everyone who is hanging onto their miracle bubs, and good luck for everyone cycling this month.

    AFM, I'm doing my prednisone, thyroid, DHEA, melatonin, aspirin, anti-inflammatories, natural alternatives to Clexane (!) and just finished five days on Letrozole. I'm supposed to start FSH injections tomorrow but instead I'm going away with my DH for a few days and then will have a scan on Monday to see what my ovaries are doing and if the letrozole got anything much happening. From there I'll decide if we do a trigger shot and IUI, or just try naturally this month.

    I'll also have to figure out if I can get my head around injectables if I don't get a BFP this month... We'll see.

    See you in few days!

    Hi all, congratulations Bertie, the first milestone in a beautiful and much wanted pregnancy.

    Saw doctor yesterday and he said the chances of the fetus surviving are very low. Depressing. Having another scan on Monday and he said you'll know definitively by then. I have no bleeding yet, but it's depressing thinking I have a dying fetus in there.

    The good conversation out of the appointment was that if we do try a stimulated cycle my odds are 18%. That's the odds for someone in the 40-44 age group. That's pregnancy of course. But you know miscarriage rates are also high, so live birth would be 12% I guess. He didn't talk about miscarriage though. But he did say we have a much better chance than naturally.

    I'm hoping the next FET works though.

    It's hard to be positive that it will happen. We'll only try one stim cycle. I have two beautiful boys and am very blessed. We could be spending time and money on the boys instead. But still feel sad about losing this one. But it's a lot easier than before my previous miscarriages as I have my ray of sunshines.

    I will feel better, I will. Time, I guess.
