It seems like this topic should have already been started by now, but just wondering if anyone's around who's due in August?? 
It's early yet, and I still have a lot of fears about ectopic or MC but was hoping to find other women around the same stage as me.

Congratulations! I'm due in August as well! I'm really excited but also nervous - I had a pregnancy loss earlier this year (though not an IVF pregnancy) so am a bit worried, but trying to just enjoy this and take it one day at a time!

Congratulations Aimee and bron, and good luck loreey! I just had my 5th transfer in late Nov and my first ever positive! I am also so excited but so scared that something will go wrong. I just keep reminding myself that I am doing everything I can do and the rest is beyond my control.

We have our first ultrasound on Thursday before the clinic closes for xmas and I'm just so hopeful that we will see our little seed in there.

Oh good to see some others in here!
Right after I posted this, I had some heavy bleeding and ended up in hospital with MC fears. I'm too early to see anything on an ultrasound and my betas were still good, but I'm going for another tomorrow. I'm trying to remain hopeful, but I'm also really scared, and the bleeding hasn't totally stopped yet cry.gif> Let's hope it sticks still. 

Good luck Loreey, and congrats May and bron!!

Aimee - I'm sorry that you are going through this. I have read about other ladies with spotting including bright red blood in IVF pregnancies where everything turns out okay.  There is just so much hope involved in this whole process. That's good that your beta's are strong and that they are getting you in for another one tomorrow. In the meantime, I will be thinking of you and sending sticky vibes to your little bean.

I also just had two positive beta tests after a late November retrieval and transfer which would make my due date mid August. I am excited but so nervous and scared that it takes away from it a bit. I dont know that I really feel pregnant. It is hard to tell what is the symptoms of the medications I am on - progesterone (in oil) injections and vaginal suppositories until 12 weeks. I have an ultrasound that I am waiting for after Christmas. I was waiting for someone to start an August group :)
Thinking of everyone and looking forward to going through this process together.

Thank you for creating this thread. I was waiting for someone to start one as i could not do it myself for some reason.

I hope you dont mind i join you.

Congratulations to all of you for making it so far. I wish you all uneventful pregnancies.

Aimee i am sorry you had a scare. I hope everything is well. Spotting is very common in early pregnancy. It could mean a lot of thing like old blood trying to escape or vaginal irritation got progesteone or intimacy with DH or anything else not serious . Try not to worry.

I have my first ultrasound Friday. I only had one beta early on but nothing since. Now i should be 7w4d.

Hi Ladies, I will be joining you as well :) I am still waiting for my beta numbers but I had a very dark BFP two days ago, and I am positive everything else will be great. I just went for my first beta this morning so I get the results tomorrow. So, let's get to know each other! This will be our second child. My first came after 3.5 years of struggling and 3 IVF transfers (two frozen). My son is 2.5 so we wanted to get on board in case it took some time to happen. We were so elated when we found out it took the first transfer after having our son. Wishing you guys the best. Does anyone know their EDD? Mine is apparently the tail end of August, the 28th. :) :)

Sweetness - Congrats! I am also on PIO injections, I haven't really had many symptoms yet either. I've been cramping on and off since my beta and my bb's were full and tender but even that has decreased in the last few days. Although I have been starting to get some pretty serious fatigue mid-morning. 

 

Kate - Good luck with your ultrasound tomorrow!

 

BlueDaisy - Congrats on your BFP, keep us posted on your beta numbers! This is my very first pregnancy after 4 years of trying - 2 years since starting IVF so it still feels a little surreal that it finally took. 

 

AFM - I just had my 6 week ultrasound this morning and we saw the flickering heartbeat! Both my husband and I were in tears.  I was really worried since my bb's haven't been as full and tender that it was a bad sign, but I think I just need to trust my body and let go of my preconceived notions of how I thought pregnancy would feel. The doctor didn't mention my EDD but according to the calculator it's August 15. 

 

How is everyone else doing?

May8 awesome to hear that you saw that beautiful heartbeat! It's so breathtaking to witness something that extraordinary. Especially when its after so much difficulty.

Kate333 sooo exciting! Is this your first child? My son had a consistent heartbeat of 153, so wondering if this means a boy for you!

AFM - I just got my first beta back yesterday morning and at 10d5dt it was 216! So happy. We went for the second bloodwork today and I'll get my results tomorrow :)

I am happy your beta is nice and strong. No it will be my third. First was after over 7 years of cyceling to different clinics with no success until i found my current clinic.

So i am 8 weeks today and wiped before and i got some wited bloody discharge. I am so concerned i hope this doesnt mean anything bad. I will keep an eye on it though. I spotted with both my daughters early on but not this late so I dont know if is something wrong or is because i had an ultrasound yesterday 🤔🤔

Kate - My doctor told me there could be some spotting after the ultrasound because of irritation to the cervix. I had a little bit of beige discharge the day after. Hopefully that's all it is.

Yes I also had spotting with my son at 8.5 weeks and I went to the hospital and had an ultrasound and it was nothing.

This morning I received my second beta result, the numbers went from 216 to 651 in two days :) I'll be getting a call next week regarding when my ultrasound will be!

Hi everyone. Im 7 weeks today via FET. I saw the heartbeat on Friday at 124 bpm. Im so worried as I have no pregnancy symptoms, except some cramping that was a little intense 2 weeks ago and are a lot calmer now. Boobs feel tight every now and then, but nothing else. Anyone else experiencing this? My next US is this Friday. Praying we still see a HB and growth. Prayers for everyone here .

Hi Aimeehug,
Christmas Eve I had the same scare. Went to the bathroom and looked like my period had started, no cramps. I called my Dr and he said it happens and it would resolve in an hour. Then I had some slight cramps. I went to the ER and everything was fine. Baby was there with a HB of 144 and my cervix was closed. The bleeding had stopped before they did the US. Im 7 weeks so a Transvaginal would have been better , but they didnt want to irritate my cervix anymore. It took the sonographer forever , but she got good views. Keep the faith. Im praying for everyone .
