Hi to everyone else I've missed, so much going on with this thread.
As for me, bit of a scare from the OB nurse today with a phone call, had a BT yesterday & my progesterone is still low, so was called in for a scan to check on bub. However, she didn't specify what level was low over the phone, and I automatically thought the worst. Scan went well though, bub was very active & nice sting heartbeat. Then got my Harmony results this afternoon, and came back all low risk 😄😄 Hopefully I can start to relax a bit soon.

I have now officially transformed into @Blossom74!
Well ladies, I have had a day, let me tell you. First up I went to my OB appointment. He said he is definitely recommending a D&C and is extremely worried I may have a molar pregnancy. My reading on the subject makes me think "No - my HCG is high, but not that high" but he referred me to the city hospital to see their Early Pregnancy Unit Assessment Team anyway.
An hour and a half drive, followed by six circles of the block to find parking, and I got there just in the nick of time. I then proceeded to wait for an hour and a half, in a room filled with OBVIOUSLY pregnant women (I kid you not, I was the ONLY non-pregnant looking woman there) and situated conveniently next to the room where they were checking everyone's baby's heartbeats - on loudspeaker.
I managed to hold my shiz together for a bit, then went in to (finally) see my Doctor. She said they are worried about my high HCG also, but are not concerned about a molar pregnancy as I don't have any of the other symptoms. She said that a sac which measures at 5 weeks should not be producing HCG in that amount, so asked the following questions:-
And before you ask, yes, I'm serious....
1. Her: Sometimes two sperm can fertilize the one egg, and it splits in two and what we are seeing is the remnant sac, and the other one is hiding somewhere... Me: Um, no, I don't think so. This was IVF. Why would they put 2 sperm inside the one egg...?
2. Her: Sometimes, women get pregnant naturally even though they are doing IVF. Is there any chance you could have gotten pregnant naturally? Me: ????? Um, no. My husband had a vasectomy, that's why we're doing IVF in the first place. Her: Yes, but sometimes one just sneaks through.... Me: No. Not possible. Aside from the vasectomy issue, I haven't had sex with my husband since embryo transfer....
(Let's ignore this last part ladies....I know I have issues but really, DTD is just NOT on my radar ATM!)
3. Her: Perhaps you have an ectopic pregnancy. We may need to do another scan. Me: Scan away love, but we've already seen the broken down gestational sac in my uterus, not in my tubes. Her: Yes, but sometimes the body produces a pseudo sac, while the other 'real' sac is hiding in the tubes. have you had serious pain and cramping, and lots of bleeding? Me: No. None of that. But it is (remotely) possible I suppose. Yes, we better check for that.
And the kicker....
4. Her: So you live with......? Me: My husband. Her: Do you have another partner who could have gotten you pregnant? Me: ?????????????????????
So I've had a BT to check on my HCG again. And another one is due in 2 days time. And if it's still going up, they are going to do a comprehensive re-scan because "We don't want to accidentally end a viable pregnancy that you have tried so hard to achieve...." THAT is the part where I lost my shiz if you're interested. I mean, I'm 110% sure I am NOT pregnant. I've been told so, continually, for three weeks now. Why the hell would people start talking about viability again?
And once all that has been done, and they arrive at the conclusion I did 3 weeks ago - that I was pregnant, and am no longer, I have a D&C scheduled for this Friday. My parents are coming to stay and will drive me to and from the hospital (hubby started a new job not long ago and can't leave work.) Apparently the hospital intend to give me 2 pills to dilate my cervix 2 hours prior to surgery, and it will all be over by the end of the afternoon.
So that's my day.

@winsor, never have I been so confused by lines! You have a cheeky monkey in there to be sure! Come on little emby, hold up your flag and wave it proudly!
@Petal, oh gosh, what a fright that must have given you. Well, at least you got to see your little one once again, and he/she is safe and sound and doing well. Congrats on the harmony test results too. Do you know the gender or are you keeping it a secret?
@Julie, I am absolutely sure you will be fine love. Deep breaths, and enjoy every minute because it is a precious time
@Bongley and @Infinity, good luck for your upcoming transfers girls! Let the stick pics begin!!!
A big hello to everyone else. Gosh I hope I haven't missed anyone's big news. Apologies, I only did a quick scan back over the posts this evening.
woah, that sounds really traumatic for you @Blossom74 I hope you're OK. I guess since it's a new place seeing you they need to be thorough, but..
I'm glad you'll have your parents with you on friday. I hope you can rest all weekend afterwards
