    I am 8 w & 3 days, at the moment I'm on 1 progesterone per day and next week decreases to 1 every 2nd day, I am so looking forward to getting off it and the prendisalone steriods also... I think FS will re-evaluate in a couple of weeks.
    I am really worried about telling DH family this weekend, there is mum and dad and 5 brothers and sisters and I don't know how we can tell some but not all.. its making me anxious that we might miscarry and then have to explain it to everyone :-/ DH is worried though as we have told my side of the family and thinks it is only fair. I wish we didn't tell anyone now, but its so hard when people know you are going through IVF and ask you how its going/went. This stress doesn't stop!!

    Hi @Lisa Maria. I saw my obstetrician on Monday and mentioned extreme constipation which may be caused by the progesterone. He told me to have a spoon of Metamucil morning and night. It's so uncomfortable but I know how you feel. I am also having sultana bran to try and help too!
    We had our scan on Monday and everything is looking good. Measuring only one day smaller and good heartbeat so ob was happy. I have been feeling a bit nauseous on and off but vomited for the first time this morning. I am hoping this is a once off but I feel it might be wishful thinking.

    Once you have reached a heartbeat the chance of miscarriage reduces by over 90% I think so hopefully this helps put your mind at rest. I would only do what you're comfortable with though!

    Thank you @ampri3 I think I have metamucil in my cupboard somewhere, great idea!
    @SoReady I have read that and thats what I am trying to focus on that once you have seen a heartbeat MC reduces to 5%. I need to stop googling and try and be more positive! Thank you for your advice, it is helpful having people who have been through this before

    @SoReady.
    I know, it's so confusing deciding who to tell when.
    We are almost 8 weeks and haven't told anyone. I desperately want to tell our parents , and only parents, but DH can't understand why we would stop there and not also tell siblings and close friends, which I want to wait til after 12wk scan.
    DH has pretty much said that he wants to tell everyone or no one. So atm it's looking like we're not telling our parents until after the 12wk scan...So confusing!!

    What about everyone else? How far along are you, and who have you told? When did you/will you tell everyone?

    @Barca07 that is the same as me and hubby. He wanted to tell no-one until 12 weeks, but I had to tell mum as she knew we were doing IVF and would have asked, then I got excited and told my brother on the phone (which i now regret as he has texted me everyday since for updates and is terrible with being discreet) and hubby wasn't impressed. I also told 2 close friends as I have confided in them through the whole IVF process. Now we have to tell his mum who is a gossip as he is worried she could find out another way. So by telling her on the weekend we are pretty much telling his whole family (5 siblings & their families!).
    It just makes me so much more nervous as if we don't already have enough to worry about! I think if I could do it again I would have just kept it to myself for the whole 12 weeks, although I think my parents might be upset if they found out at almost 3 months and I had been lying :-( I am grateful for having IVF as an option, but it is another thing that makes me envious of natural conception & "suprise" pregnancies as there is nowhere near as much pressure. I just find it so rude of people to straight out ask questions like 'are you pregnant yet'? when they know you are going through IVF (and surprisingly they do!). Anyway sorry rant over
    What do you think you are going to do?

    @Lisa Maria, my husband told his boss ages ago that we were doing ivf because of all the time off. This was when there no end in sight and the emotions were very bleak... At a Christmas work function, his boss asked me in front of all of his work work colleagues if I was feeling fertile... I could have died. I pretended like I didn't hear him, and he shouted the same question. If looks could kill... He got the picture. Idiot!
    Hope you are all travelling well. Almost 10 weeks and the ms is starting to lift.

    @oliveoil OMG people can be so insensitive, that is horrible... his boss is lucky you killed him with looks rather than bursting out crying or yelling at him!! I told hubbys sister I was going through IVF (so she would stop asking me awkward questions in front of the family) and when I called her the other day she asked me "So have you got news for me yet?!" As if it was about HER!! I was gobsmacked, I didn't even know how to respond. It is safe to say I will NEVER ask anyone about their family plans!

    Very true. I never ask, ever. You just don't know.

    I should have burst out crying, hehe!

    I got this stuff a lot too soon the end we told people we would be doing IVF and told them about our previous losses. When the questions started rolling about when it would happen I said we would rather keep it to ourselves. That way we didn't have friends and family hanging on our 2ww. Most understood as I reminded them that they didn't tell anyone until 12 weeks so we would tell them if and when there was news.

    This time I've popped early so anyone that has seen me since 7 weeks knows. Luckily we have seen too many people. My parents live interstate but arrive tomorrow so will tell them. Then we have DS 1st bday party Saturday so then everyone will know! I'll be 10 weeks but have had a scan since 6+6 so I'm a bit nervous. My OB appointment and nipt test are next Tuesday
