    @bbhope yeah I know the scan at the ob isn't as good but for a reassurance at 10 weeks might be ok? Then have the proper scan at 12 weeks. I know! The sound of heartbeat is the best sound in the world right now for me.
    There is a boppi wedge pillow that's good for side sleeping later on, but really it's not an issue till your third Tri and only then if you're actually having the problem where a heavy uterus is squishing the Vena cava. I still lie on my back with no issues

    Congrats @Emerald26 that's wonderful news

    Thanks so much ladies, still in a bit of shock. Whilst I am cautious, I am also feeling hopeful that this could be the one. There is no point feeling negative. I didn't know who to call yesterday, the gp or fs. I ended up calling the fs and his receptionist faxed a pathology form to my nearest pathology and my fs called me last night. He said my progesterone was 88 which is my highest yet. Hcg was 1100 and I think I am 4 weeks 4 days or 4 weeks 5 days. FS has arranged for me to have bloods next week so I will see what levels are doing then.
    @bbhope do you have a thyroid issue? If so, how is it managed? Mine has only been picked up and I saw an endocrinologist on Monday. Sh said my tsh was low but t3 and t4 were in normal ranges. She said she would manage me in pregnancy but we were thinking I would be doing a transfer in about June. She wanted to determine exactly what my issue was hence referred me for a scan. I only went out Thursday night and bought a test in case a miracle had happened. We had been trying for 3.5 years. I will have to call her Monday and see if I can go back and see her. When I left I had booked a follow up appointment for the end of May.

    I am so happy for all of us and here's to all of us having babies by the new year.

    @Emerald26: no I don't have thyroid issue but I am on the immune issue thread which a lot of ladies have it. They actually have it regulated before transfer with drug. And it needs to be monitored as well throughout the pregnancy. There is a rule of thumb with the drug ratio vs BT. I don't know the number but I can direct you to ask at the natural killer cell thread. I am sure that some of the ladies there can answer you. If no one posts, I can direct you to few bubhub members via pm.

    Many thanks @bbhope. I will call the endocrinologist on Monday and see if she can treat me without knowing what I had. Of the 3 things she mentioned, I think she was leaning towards one but wanted the thyroid scan to confirm. She also said we could still be in the dark after the scan. She also wanted me to do more blood tests in May so I will see if getting those done next week is ok or if I do have to wait.

    Good thanks @Gelati but getting quite sore and tired, plus my anxiety has ramped up to a million in the last few days. I find I'm counting kicks a lot now just to make sure he's still ok in there. Very much looking forward to having him where I can see him.

    @ScubaGal when are you due? Mustn't be long to go? You have been pretty relaxed and it's now home stretch. Thanks for the tip on the pillow. Will look into it later. Don't need it yet.
    @Emerald26 wow your hcg level is high. And good to see you have started tackling your thyroid issues. I'm sure the specialist can help you. 3.5 years is a long time so I know how happy and nervous you are. I'm still nervous too but after the scan last week I'm more relaxed now. But I don't think I will ever fully be very relaxed about it. Sometimes I wish I don't know the pain of infertility. Try to enjoy your miracle pregnancy. It's fantastic. When is your next BT?
    @bbhope @Gelati how are you girls going? @Gelati when is your next ob appointment.

    So will you ladies find out the gender of your baby?

    I went shopping yesterday to buy some maternity clothes (looser clothes). Wow...the selections are so pathetic here in Perth. In the end, I only bought 2 pairs of maternity jeans which don't have waist band from JustJean. JeanWest has some but all with the waist band. It is a bit uncomfortable to wear the waist band at this stage without super big belly. I also have belly belt but the problem is that it only fits low rise jean. I remember low rise jean wasn't popular anymore so I ended up all mid rise when i shopped pre-preg last time. So Belly belt doesn't work. They seem to make the dresses to maxi as maternity. LOL.

    Yes, we will find out the gender of the baby. I don't like surprise. I want to be mentally prepared. It will be at 20w scan, though. Still a long time to go.

    The anxiety will never end. I thought after 12w, I would be more relax but no. Because I am weaning off drugs, i feel like the need to check the bub more often to make sure he/she doesn't slow down growing. I am weaning off the drugs a lot earlier than most ladies on the other thread. I just can't imagine myself to stay on steroid any longer given i am enduring various side effects, especially affecting my health atm. But if it needs be to keep the bub growing, I'll do it. Not long until next OB appt for me. Woohoo!

    Oh @bbhope that doesn't sound like a lot of options at all. I'm lucky that I've been given quite a few hand me down mat wear in the last 2 years. So I don't need to buy anything. Except I was thinking to buy belly belt for now until 13-14 weeks as things are getting really tight. But maybe belly belt isn't that great based on what you wrote.

    I've been eating heaps in the last 2-3 days to keep my ms at bay. It's bad that I feel sick of eating. Not enjoying having to eat constantly. And I normally love eating.

    Have you been using your Doppler everyday then? That's why sometimes I wish we never had to do ivf. Never had miscarriages. Reckon we would be more relaxed throughout the pregnancy. Some of my friends ate whatever they want including sushi. But it will all be worth it. I'm trying to not worry as much though as don't want baby to feel it. Apparently they can? Easier said than done haha.

    minib: belly belt will get you a long way. I am only using the small one in the pack. As I mentioned, if you have low rise jean/pant, it should work. Mid rise which sits on top or slight below of belly button just doesn't work well. My jean keeps sliding down a lot below the belly button. I ended up have to pull my jean all the time! The maternity jeans that i bought is a bit like belly belt which can be adjusted.

    I am using the doppler once a day in the evening after work. It takes a while to find it each time but i sorta know where bub likes to hang out now. It isn't just for reassurance. Somehow it makes me happy to know that bub is active in there. I looked at a few youtube, certain sound corresponding to kick. I can't feel it but i can hear it. It can be loud for the ears, though.

    Ya, eating is the hardest part. I started out super strict but then realized that some food i ate wasn't actually safe for pregnant women. In the end, i feel like i can't eat anything other than freshly cooked veges. I feel like more harm for not getting enough nutrition for the baby. I gave up and am not as strict but skip the obvious. eg: i ate rice and veges for lunch near work because it is freshly cooked. Then, i heard that it is possible to get food poisoning from rice. Home made lunch and then reheat is also a no. So there is nothing really i can eat for lunch, is there? Even now, DH thinks my diet is crazy.
