Trigger warning. This might be it for me. Heavy bleeding after severe cramping today 6w4d. I'm in pain. We'll see if it's still in there on my next u/s.

Had an u/s today which should put me at 6w0d-6w4d based on natural conception. Gestational sac and yolk sac look good, IF I was less than 5 weeks! Non-viable, but they still want another u/s to confirm. This will be my 3rd m/c, I'm becoming an expert!

    Since I have one healthy child, I'm chalking this one up to chromosomes as I am 40. The one a few months ago was also suggestive of chromosomes, due to the large yolk sac. Even though that was from my 37 year old eggs in a FET. We have 3 more frozen embryos. If we only have one child though, we'll be happy.

    Lumnay, don't worry, I had spotting and cramping probably until 10 weeks. I know it is hard but try to stay calm. It will be fine.

    Thanks for the support, everyone. This web site is my only source of support besides my husband as we haven't told anybody about this pregnancy, which may or may not take.
    I'm still spotting but without cramps now. It seems that this is not uncommon during 1st trimester.
    Again, thanks.

Just got home from my appointment, Dr. S said that there was no genetic or chromosomal issue with baby. It was a random thing that happened. The neuro tube did not close properly and as a result baby had anecephaly. Something that is not very common in IVF, according to him.

I'm interested in switching to the Victoria fertility Centre - has anyone good or bad experience with them? TIA

    VFC is awesome and I have my identical twins to prove that one! The only bad experience I have had is that they have really old magazines in the waiting room to read....

    Do you even need a referral to that clinic? For some reason I didn't think you did.

    Thanks everyone. I believe you need a referral so that BC residents can get things like in person consults covered by provincial health care. I'm not a BC resident yet, but should be in a couple of months.

I had a fresh BFP which gave me my son. We had 4 frosties, 3 of which have resulted in a BFN. Is it worth bothering with the last frostie?

    My first fet failed, next 2 worked, this last frostie was the same grade as my first failed transfer. All unmedicated fet's.

    Fresh took but miscarried, single fet failed, double fet failed, double fet succeeded as a singleton (in progress)

    Thanks @jojo10 and @Meary - wow @Meary that's amazing. I so wish we'd done two double FETs instead of a single and double as all the frosties would have been used up by now. By the time I'm ready to cycle again we should have moved to a different province so will need to come back to do the final FET.
