Where is everyone at in their pregnancy? 😁

Weekend is going well as it's a long weekend and the weather is beautiful! Still dealing with sore boobs and tiredness but it's a relief to have symptoms and I'm bummed I don't have more. ;) I think I'm coming up on 8 weeks!

Hi all! I did my FET on April 21st with a 5 day blast so according to the IVF calculator I'm due Janurary 6th!
So I belief that means as of today I'm 7weeks 2 days. I go for my first ultrasound Thursday and then I believe I will be discharged to an actual OB!

Congrats to everyone! So exciting!

AFM- I did my IVF transfer on May 8th. We transferred one embryo on day 5. I am due between Jan 20-28th. I go in for my 6.5 week u/s on June 3rd where they will give me an exact due date and we get to see the heartbeat! Can't wait to see the little pea on the ultrasound screen!

Hi all,

 

Glad to see some familiar names on this board!  I'm at 7 weeks 1 day right now.  Last week I had my first ultrasound and discovered that our one embryo had split into identical twins, which was an amazing surprise.  My due date is technically Jan 7th, but it will be earlier than that with a twin delivery.  I'll be monitored a lot more, which is reassuring on the one hand but also nerve-wracking.


Me: 36, DH: 38, TTC since 2013

Dx: PCOS and mild Endo

5 cycles of timed intercourse on Clomid/Femara - 4 BFNs, 1 ectopic January 2015 (methotrexate)

3 IUIs w. injectables, 2 BFNs, 1 BFP m/c @ 7weeks July 2015

April - IVF #1: retrieved 8, fertilized 7, 3 made it to day 5

Transferred one fresh blast April 15, BFP!

Ultrasound #1 May 17th - it's identical twins!

I'm due January 10th but I'll deliver a couple weeks before that since I need a c-section so I imagine I'll likely go around the end of december. Today I'm 6w5d, overall feeling pretty good although I did break out in "pregnancy induced hives" over a week ago which havent gone away yet, I'm also pretty bloated from the PIO shots.... I'll be taking them for another 5 weeks (the complete first trimester) so the nurse was joking the bloat will just morph into actual baby belly so I'd better get used to it.

First ultrasound looked great and I go back again at 9 weeks

Hi ladies i need help with process of finding an obgyn.
My husband and I will be moving to the States in few months and we are not really familiar with the health care system there.

This is also my first pregnancy so not sure how everything works

Just wondering do we need to first find a family doctor before we can get a referral to our obgyn ? ( like in Canada) Or can you just go straight to the obgyn you have in mind?

Any help or info would be appreciated. Thanks!

Welcomed my "Baby D" embryo in the new "home" on May 4th - May the 4th be with it!
I "should be 5 weeks and 3 days pregnant" today (due date: Jan 19) according to this website's 5 day FET calculator. And my HCG levels seem to agree: 22,454 according to the blood test taken this morning.
I'm 38 and this is my first IVF. Interesting experience. Hope we'll make it through the first trimester ok. It's pretty nerve wrecking...

LauraK and KFNorth- so exciting to finally meeting your bean tomorrow. Can't wait for your updates

And yes i was really surprised when my nurse said they will monitor me weekly. I thought after today's u/s, they were going to discharge me. Then of course, my negative mind started questioning " is something wrong with my baby that's why they want me to come back?" Geez 🙄
Being pregnant is really messing me up.. Trying so hard to start enjoying this pregnancy.

The only thing we were a bit dissappointed was my clinic don't do doppler . So we won't be able to hear the heartbeat at all.
But i'm still thankful to see that fluttering heart on the screen .

Everyone is so lucky to have their first u/s! Ours is June 3rd and I'm so impatient!

Laurak I feel the same way! All the symptoms and everything confirming the pregnancy doesn't feel real till I see it! So waiting game!

Looking forward to hearing everyone's results! Congrats!

I'm struggling a bit these last couple days with negative thoughts.... worrying about all the bad things that can happen.

I'm trying to snap myself out of it. I'm sure that after my next ultrasound on the 7th (i'll be 9 weeks) I will start to feel better.
