C-Ross I had a FET on 20 Oct where I transferred 3 5 day embryos. We did a natural cycle meaning we used no meds at all other than the hcg trigger. 2 of the 3 were already hatching. I go back next Wednesday.

Dawnkey... I know. 😳

Is anyone having cravings or prefer some food more than others? When i had dd i was eating lots of sweets chocolate in particular and i hate it chocolate before that but dd loves chocolate now😊 This time i want salty food and pickles. I went through a half gar or Hajvar since yesterday afternoon. I hope all this is a good sign.

I will visit the clinic tomorrow and beg them for a second beta and hopefully it has doubled.

Rin – yes, I had mild cramping that started in my week 5 and has continued into my week 6. Agree with breezyboo, I read that it can be from your uterus expanding and making room for baby J or in your case three babies! Hope baby C makes its debut. Congrats mama

 

V016 & Belles – welcome to the other side! Congrats on your strong beta

 

Sheena – I too am on Pregvit. Yes, it is recommended the pink tablet is taken on an empty stomach because iron is readily absorbed easier on its own. But if you have to have it with a small meal that is ok, just try to avoid dairy in this meal as it will counteract the iron absorption. If you were to take it on an empty stomach and then throw it up then you wouldn’t be getting any benefit of the vitamin and minerals, so taking it with food may reduce how it is absorbed but at least you would get some benefits by keeping it down. Another alternative is you can try taking the pink 2 hours after you eat breakfast.   The blue tablet is the one that has the folic acid and calcium, take this with food.

 

Marly – welcome! Strong beta. Good luck with your u/s tomorrow

 

Mel – welcome! Looks like Sheena and I will be doing u/s the same day as you

 

Belles and Sheena – RFP only has you do one beta. Then they set you up with your 1st u/s. I saw my GP right away once I got my beta result from the clinic and he sent me for more betas.

 

C-ross- welcome to the group!

 

Smc- stay hopeful, having repeat betas help to see the trend. Agree with dawnkey

 

AFM - I have been experiencing mild cramping on a off for about a week. That I am not concerned about. What is concerning, I started experiencing a very sharp pain to my left side that comes and goes. It's a very distinct pain and I can pinpoint exactly where it is. I am seeing my GP tomorrow morning to make sure it isn't anything serious (trying not to think ectopic). I told hubby I was going tomorrow but he's insisting I go to the walk in or hospital now. So confused, I don't want to over react, yet I don't want to under react either. Any suggestions?

I am having that sharp pain in my left side too, Nadira.  It comes and goes as well, and seems to be worse when I'm sitting down.  I've been fretting for almost 2 weeks over it.  My u/s is tomorrow though, so hopefully that will put my ectopic worries to rest.  Do you think you could get an u/s a little earlier?

Nadira thank you. As for the pain, i have it on my righ side and it goes yo the left sometimes. I think i remember i had similar pain with dd. i think with all thats going on inside, thats why we feel what we feel. However, i was seeing my dr and having u/s every week with dd. i was so scared e ery pain or little spotting, i would book and u/s. If your heart says to go and see a doctor go but hospital will probably not be a good idea. You will wait forever and get more stressed and tired. If you cac book an early u/s with your clinic go for it. Dont stress to much though the pain is notmal as your uterus streches to make room for the baby.

Nadira/everhopeful - as of today I am also having a sharp pain in the same spot on my left side. I would hope that the odds are if all three of us are experiencing this that it is totally normal. Let me know if you guys find anything out, there is no chance I can get an earlier ultrasound as I live in a smaller town and ultrasound is booked up weeks or even months in advance :\

update - I ended up going to the urgent care centre (a step down from the actual hospital). I got in right away, was in and out within 1.5 hours total. The Dr said the signs and symptoms of a ruptured ectopic pregnancy are much worse than just a sharp pain, but I could be experiencing pain if it were the early stages. She said they couldn't actually tell anything without an u/s as it is so early in the pregnancy, so off I went. They were able to book me in immediately this afternoon at the same radiology clinic the fertility clinic has us go to. Everything at the u/s went well, had to do an internal cuz the tech couldnt see anything by exterior method (once again, very early in the preg). The radiologist did review the scans and said everything looked good and they had no explanation as to why I am experiencing this pain - could be my body reacting to the new changes. So rest assured ladies, that a sharp pain we are experiencing is also considered normal. I am glad I did get checked out and got to see the very tiny nugglet measuring 6w4d at 7.1cm, HB 120.

 

For reference - If it were a ruptured ectopic pregnancy, the symptoms would be nausea, vomiting, fever along with severe and sharp pain

Thanks for the update Nadira!  Hopefully I hear the same news at my u/s tomorrow, I'll keep you posted.  And you're right C-Ross, the odds of all 3 of us having an ectopic pregnancy are pretty slim, so thanks for weighing in!

Nadira, So happy to hear that everything went well and that you got to see your sweet bean all safe and cozy with a great HB!

 

Sometimes you just have to follow your gut. I wish I read your post earlier, as my first BFP ever was ectopic and I had severe nausea, lots of bad cramping and pains almost feeling like sharp appendicitis and spotting (brown to bright red). After seeing my family doc a  who quickly dismissed me as having 'normal' early pregnancy symptoms, I decided after a week of feeling like that to go to emerg... They could tell right away it was ectopic and waiting any longer would have caused me to lose my tube. So good for trusting your gut and ruling it out! You can rest easy now mama!
