I've been waiting for an August group to pop up and since it hasn't, I'm taking the (optimistic) plunge! Just had success with a FET and I'm due end of August. Would love to chat with others due in August!

I kept checking to see if one would pop up too! I'll hang out with you & hope others will join. It'd be nice to have a group where others have gone through fertility treatment.

Hi Everyone!

My due date is Aug 25. Still in shock! We had an U/S this week and saw a healthy heartbeat. I'm 7 weeks today and sure feeling the early symptoms...

Congrats to all!

Congrats to everyone with their early ultrasounds & good results!

Unfortunately I can't say the same. I had my first u/s today. I'd be 6w2d or 6w3d after transferring 2 day six embryos. Turns out both implanted as there were 2 sacs. One was much smaller & appeared to be empty. I've had some spotting for the past week & my RE figures this is why. My other gestational sac was larger & contained a yolk sac, but the image was not clear enough to make out the fetal pole.

He said it wasn't bad news as he couldn't say there was no fetal pole. The image just wasn't clear enough. I'm preparing for the worst as there really should have been an obvious fetal pole & heartbeat by now. I have another u/s booked in 2 weeks to see what's going on, but I'm not sure I'll get that far.

Good luck to everyone else on their journey!

Karmapaws, maybe it was just the image not being clear. I know other clinics don't do ultrasounds before 7 weeks as you may not see a heartbeat before 7 weeks. Hopefully you will have better news in 2 weeks.

Hi everyone, we had our ultrasound on tuesday and everything looks good. There is only one in there and he or she is doing well and measuring tall apparently. I am just over 8 weeks. How is everyone doing symptom wise? My main thing has been exhaustion and quite frankly I've been in a real funk and not feeling like myself. On the plus side the nausea I experienced with our twins seems to be staying away this time around and I've been able to practice kundalini yoga almost daily.

 

Karmapawz - so sorry for your stressful news - I hope you get much better news and soon.

 

cakelady13 - welcome and I wouldn't pay too much attention to the due date - with my first pregnancy it seemed like everyone gave me a different date. As long as you have an idea, you're good!

 

Corri7 - yay for a good ultrasound. I am due either the 23rd or 25th so very close to your date!

 

Baltic5 - so glad your ultrasound went well!

 

annatarz79 - did you have your ultrasound?

Ashott, I am really happy that your ultrasound went well.
My nausea is also quite manageable, but I am exhausted. One thing that really bothers me is my inflamed sinuses. I didn't know this was a symptom, but I had it ever since the positive test, and it seems to only be getting worse.

Glad to hear that everyone seems to be doing well. I had my second u/s today. Going by my transfer date I should be 8w0d today. There were still 2 sacs. The smallest one was still empty & the baby just never developed.

The other sac didn't have a fetal pole last time, but now has a baby with a heartbeat. Unfortunately it's still not good news. The sac is measuring 7w1d & the baby is only measuring 6w2d, almost two weeks behind. The heartbeat is also very low @ 68bpm. The Dr expects it to stop growing & that seems to be the logical conclusion as it's so far behind.

I'm actually not super upset. I went in expecting the worst & feeling blessed/lucky to have my daughter from my first IVF cycle. 👶🏻❤️
