    Default Donor Egg (IVF) baby measure behind?

    Hi ladies, I’m hoping for some assurances from your experiences. I miscarried my first donor egg in Feb this year at 10 weeks, with some spotting prior.

    I’m currently 9w2d pregnant with a donor egg. I had a few scans to date but only one internal at my viability scan. HCG was pretty solid before the scans but haven’t been measuring since. I’m not spotting much but am loaded with Crinone progesterone. When I wipe, I have been seeing bits of brown specks amongst the white progesterone in the last few days. I’m inevitably anxious about how things are going... 😔

    My obstetrician can only scan me from the belly and as it’s early stage, the measurements aren’t accurate like internal scans. So here goes...

    7w0d - internal scan - 133 bpm measure 6w5d - consistent in range for IVF procedures

    8w2d - belly scan - 160-170 bpm measure 8w
    9w2d - belly scan - 160-17 bpm measure 8w4d

    Ob says it’s within measurements. He assured me there’s good heartbeat and the fetus is moving. I told him I’m not sure I saw it move. I passed a full amniotic sac so I have seen the baby float inside. Not so convinced about the movement he saw and pointed out to me. He will scan me again on Friday.


    Did your IVF baby measure behind? Do fetus really love at this stage - not just floating moving but limbs move?

    Hello dear, just saw this post and want to check up on you. It is very understandable for you to feel concerned since you suffered an MC the last time. Did your baby make it? How are you now?

    Hi @ Maeve88Troy, thanks so much for checking in, really appreciate it.

    I am close to 37 weeks so it’s great news!!!!! Bub will be our from a cesarean just over a week. Expectedly, we are stoked. Hope anyone else reading the post can get some comfort too learning things can work out..

    Overall, I had a very smooth pregnancy. Tricky for the mind in first trimester simply because I had no obvious symptoms to confirm I’m pregnant other than through tests. I just had lower back pain after embryo transfer, presumably implantation signs.

    With no nausea, vomiting, discomfort of any kind, I simply got reassurance from fortnightly check in’s with my ob and a quickie scan, and the scheduled growth etc. ultrasounds from the pros at Ultrasound Care (Sydney branches).

    Later scans indicated my placenta was on the front so again, it meant I would feel less movements, until the placenta moves further up away from the cervix - which was in week 20++. Once I passed the first trimester, it was happy days. Birthday celebration and baby moon at the Maldives! 🥳

    Bubs still measuring ~40% percentile, near the 50% average and looking very healthy overall.

    So good luck and baby dust to everyone!!!!! 🥰
