It's been a while (my youngest daughter just turned 9, lol) but I seem to remember getting a scan before 5 weeks and freaking out cause there wasn't a heartbeat and I had to go back after 5. They may have gotten a bit more advanced since then though so I'll have to ask my doctor .
My ob with DD said she doesn't like to do a scan until 7 weeks because the heart should definitely be beating by then
Congrats everyone on the bfp how exciting and I wish a sticky and non eventful pregnancy for you all!
Afm I have been extremely emotional. But I'm not sure we did enough dtd this month. I am only about 6dpo so still too early to be symptom spotting :-/
9 dpo today. I did an IC this morning, and if you've got a really really good imagination, you could imagine there is a super faint line on it, not visible to the human eye. but I'm calling it a BFN, cos no other person in the world would see the second line.
However, I'm still hopeful. With DD I did an IC at 10 dpo and couldn't see a visible second line, yet the FRER was obvious the next morning, no squinting necessary. So I'm not giving up just yet.
Couldn't help myself, so went out and got a clear blue digital test. Seeing the word Pregnant flash on the screen makes it all a little bit more "real". Getting slight cramps but fingers crossed it sticks around
