Emergency ivf advice needed
Posted 09 January 2020 - 05:58 PM
Well my period is currently 5 days late and yesterday I decided to do a pregnancy test and to my absolute shock and astonishment it shows positive. Today again I tested positive. This is very exciting but.....
I have massive anxiety now that if this isnt a viable pregnancy or chemical or if I miscarry after they cancel my ivf cycle then Ill have to wait another year at the back of the waitlist !!! I cant mentally or financially or age wise deal with going through that again!
As excited as I am to be showing pregnant for the first time in my life Im terrified itll not stick or be viable and I lose my spot for ivf! Maybe its not a rational fear but what would you do? Do you think the clinic will cancel my ivf plan immediately before making sure I dont miscarry this month? Do you think Id have to go and wait another year again? Im scared of calling them cause I dont want to lose everything again .. thank you for your advice in advance... I was planning on calling them later tonight

It really sounds like it would depend on the clinic. Each clinic is given alot of leeway in how they manage their wait lists. If you are with a busy clinic they may not notice your absence for a while. I don't know how you can find out their policy without showing your hand unless you called and asked without telling them your identity.
Call your family doctor and get a couple HCG tests. If the beta is doubling appropriately it will give you a fairly good idea if this is likely to be a viable pregnancy. Good luck!
You can also try PMing the people on this forum who go to your clinic. Maybe they can give you some valuable information. What clinic are you with?

The techs aren't supposed to tell you anything. It sucks. I think its Ontario law. It takes a few hours to do the HCG test, when I had some done with lifelabs they sometimes came out as late a 9pm. And the doctor wants to see the result before you. It makes them feel important.
Good luck today!

Congratulations! I hope this is a take home baby for you. I'm glad to hear your clinic is keeping you on their waitlist.
Are they having you come in for a second HCG?
