    @Gingerlion once you are pregnant, IVF or natural your pregnancy should be treat the same... the only factors for early delivery would be maybe your age or perhaps any other conditions that put you or your baby at risk, IVF does not put you at higher risk. I remember reading this with my first & asked my OB, he told me everything from then on was considered the same as any other pregnancy, I'd clarify why he's putting you in this category just for your own understanding

    Thanks @AmyEL I will clarify. This was my ivf specialist and said that when you've had trouble getting pregnant it's treated as high risk. I'll push for more info and a valid explanation when I see my OB is four weeks or so

    @Gingerlion everything @AmyEL said it true. Unless you have other issues you should be treated like any other mum. Plenty of IVF mummas have natural intervention free births.

    AFM: I work with my sister (huge department) she told a few people I was pregnant I was ok with this but yesterday 3 people approached me and commented about bubs gender. My sister has told them I'm having a girl and she knows it's a secret. I told these 3 girls it is a secret and we are not telling people and I would like them to respect that.

    My sister is my best friend and I don't want to cause friction. Do I say anything? Just remind her we aren't sharing gender? Tell her I'm really upset?

    @mummymaybe That's good to know about the intervention free births. I've had enough experience to not listen 100% to medical professionals and research everything myself before making a decision so I'm not about to be railroaded into one or the other. I'll be asking plenty of questions

    With your sister I would definitely say something even if it's just something small. She has ignored the fact that the information was not to be shared. I'd be pretty upset. You wanted to keep it private, private is private and she has broken that trust. It's not cool.

    @Gingerlion At my first ob appointment she mentioned that if I haven't gone into labour by my due date that I may have to be induced as she said that the placenta can become compromised in ivf pregnancies after this time. I hadn't heard of this before but I will ask more questions closer to the time for sure. I have not heard good things about induction so I'm a little apprehensive. Fingers crossed it doesn't need to happen.

    Also, I wish I had tips for you but I still worry and I'm 16 weeks! I think it's just part of the whole journey. You can't help but worry and hope that everything is going perfectly. It's natural. I had a bit of a panic attack last night that things weren't ok as my nausea has calmed down a lot but had my ob appointment today and all is well. The scans are the only thing that reassures me.

    I'm hanging out for the morphology scan now so I can be assured of its health and also know the sex for sure. My nuchal sonographer and my ob today both say girl so it will be interesting to get the final verdict. Either way I'm so excited, I just want to know!

    IVF stats, like the placenta being compromised are frustrating as they make it a blanket statement, not taking into account things like IVF mums have a higher age average than 'natural' pregnancies... we used IVF because of MFI, we needed help getting egg & sperm together, once that's done it's done, there is no way the baby or placenta would develop any differently to a naturally conceived pregnancy... if OB's are concerned about these sorts of things there should just be extra monitoring towards the end of your pregnancy. If you want a natural birth then opt for that, if you want a c-section then go with that... don't let your specialist scare you, especially if you feel comfortable that you don't fall into any 'risk' categories... sometimes I think specialist play on our anxieties to push what they want... be your own advocate! I can assure you if you where going public you wouldn't be treated any differently... I'm going private because if there is something wrong & we end up as high risk then I want my OB's expertise to monitor me & bubs, plus I want my own room!

    PS, I have had 2 elective c-sections & will have another with thus Bub, this is what I want/ed nothing to do with how my babies where conceived, it suited me & my family situation (1 IVF & 1 natural, this one IVF)

    @Gingerlion I can't believe that came from ur FS. There is no difference as Amy said, our pregnancies might start off with a little help but after that it's perfectly normal. When you change over to an OB or midwife, they should treat you just like anyone else.

    I went 5 hours in labour with my son without any intervention then couldn't handle it anymore. Lucky I did in the end coz I needed an emergency c section. So a natural birth is totally possible! We are having a c section again this time as it's the safer option and of course coz there is 2 to deliver.
    @mummymaybe I'd be so annoyed if anyone especially a sibling did that to me. You should definitely say something else she will continue to blab it to people. This is the reason I'm still undecided if we will tell anyone when we find out. My family as massive blabbers. They do my head in! I told 3 people I was pregnant and most of the family knew within a week.

    Hope all is going well with everyone.. 1 week to go until our next appt. Really hate these monthly appts. Hopefully they will be closer together after this one! I want to see our bubs more *extremely impatient person here

    Is anyone still exercising? I just finished my PT session, I do that once a week & try & get to 2 classes a week, the last 2 pregnancies I did nothing so I'm just trying to be healthier... I've put on 4kg in the 20.5 weeks & don't really want to put much more on (i started too heavy!) so really need to watch it in this second half!

    I am still doing boot camp 3 days a week. Stopped after transfer then started again at 11 weeks. I didn't exercise with ds and put in 17kg so carrying 2 this time, I didn't want to be putting on 30kg!! Will continue until it gets too much or my OB says stop. Gives me more motivation and energy to do things. Before I went back, I was feeling lazy and just wanting to sit around all day.

    I'm not very fit when not pregnant. I'm naturally petite but I've already put on 9.4 kilos. I need to watch my weight here on in, but possibly more so my diet. If I started exercising now my body would go into shock I put on 15 kg with my daughter, and I'm over half way there at 21 weeks
