    Your levels sound great @Petal40 the wait until the scan is awful isnt it. Ive had a mc before and the knicker checking truly sux although on that cycle my levels were low from the start.

    Your results sound fab, Petal! Congrats!

    I can understand your anxiousness in waiting for the scan results. I doubt there would ever be a time during my pregnancy (if I were to ever be so lucky) where I would be comfortable with it and stop worrying.

    I am a worrier by nature though!

    I am so pleased for you

    Krysta

    I'm amazed at how much time I spend actually checking my knickers lol
    My levels were similar in the beginning with my mc (was a missed mc, so my body still thought it was pregnant after the baby had stopped growing & had to have D&C), but never had a blood test at this time to compare against. I'm quite anxious, and trying to not to be, as that won't be helping anything. 6 days to scan 😕

    Petal what you are feeling is truly normal. I didnt totally relax until e was here. Even as I got further down the track I still felt like it could get taken away. Unfort its a grief that I think lots of longterm ivfers experience.

    Hi Midnite

    I'm feeling better now than I did this morning. I was terribly tearful this morning, thoroughly convinced that nothing is happening, but the girls have been fantastic in helping me back up again.

    My BT is set for Monday morning, with results due Tuesday morning. I can assure you that I will be testing well before that, so that by the time the official results filter through I will hopefully already know what is (or isn't) happening.

    I was initially more hopeful this round than my last (due primarily to having such a good quality embryo) but since then the whole "You're not that lucky" thing crept into my mind. I'm really hopeful that I can pop back on here Tuesday and say "I couldn't have been more wrong!"

    Krysta

    @Petal40 I was still doing the knicker check the day I had my caeserean! !!!

    Krysta I have often felt pregnant on the cycles that were a negative and often felt the least on the positive cycles! !

    Good luck lovely ladies.

    @Petal40 Your levels are right on track for where you are Luv Check this link out and scroll to the bottom of the page:

    http://www.babymed.com/is-my-hcg-blood-level-normal

    Yes, it's true that your levels don't double as much once you reach a certain amount, but the aim of todays test was to show you that your little Bellybean inside is still growing as it should be and it is Luv There is no reason at this moment in time to believe you won't see that HB on Monday.

    Your anxiety is totally understandable and normal. Not only is this an IVF pregnancy, but one coming off the back of a MC, so that just exacerbates it all IMO. We IVF'ers know that getting a BFP is only half the battle. We either know far too much, have already suffered one or more losses or a combination of both which leaves us living in an almost constant state of fear knowing that nothing's a given and that we still have the other half of the race to run until we finally get to the finish line.

    I remember sitting in Wazza's waiting room for my 7 wk viability scan almost throwing up and being on the verge of an anxiety attack preparing myself for the worst "just in case". That anxiety and fear never really left me until L was safely delivered. I don't think it ever leaves any woman who's been down this path and/or who has suffered a loss until then.

    All you can do is try to manage it as best as you can and cross one stepping stone at a time day by day, week by week, month by month, scan/test by scan/test as you inch ever closer to victory
