Hello Ladies, Can I join you in here? I have my 20 week scan on Friday (although I'll be 20 plus 6 by then). It's all still a bit surreal! I'm fairly certain that I've been feeling little fluttering's over the last couple of weeks but I don't really know what I'm looking for! Can't wait to get to my scan on Friday, just hope all is ok! Hope you are all well!?! x

Hi All, I have been starting to feel a bit sick this last week and was sick for the first time ever the other day but nothing since! When I got my down syndrome test the told me that the fluid was measuring 1.7mm and that anything above 3.5 was considered high risk, they also took my bloods and said that if I was high risk they would call within 7-10 days but if low risk then I would hear in the next 2-3 week by post. Bess, you seem to have got your results pretty quickly. Maame- I was also meas...

Kitty - I was told because I was a frozen transfer I had to use pessaries and estrogen tablet until 12 weeks and wean myself off them in my 13th week. x

Hi all, Kitty - good luck today! Maame - I'm good thanks. One of my chums is at the same stage as me and she had her 12 week scan this week. The consultant appointment is apparently to discuss more scans (at 28,32 and 36 weeks) and also to discuss being induced on your due date as apparently a higher percentage of ivf pregnancies end up in a C-section. It's all very new as I have another chum who has been through ivf and is 20 weeks and she hasn't been given any more scans! As far as I'm concern...

My scan is Friday and it cannot come quick enough! So stressful not knowing whether or not everything is ok!

Hi KittyKat, Nice to hear from you. I'm afraid I don't have any advice on morning sickness as I never really had any, I felt a bit of nausea at times but not too bad! I've had the odd cramp throughout and my midwife said it was normal. I was 12 weeks on Saturday, desperate for my 12 week scan to come around so I know if everything's ok. Have you thought about getting a private scan? A few of the ladies on here have done it and I'm sorta wishing I had! xx

Hi all, After my rant earlier, my amazing midwife has managed to get me an appointment at Stonehaven for next week! Apparently, because I'm an IVF pregnancy the consultant at Stonehaven will also arrange an additional appointment with me - has anyone ever had that? They didn't offer me that at Aberdeen? xx

Thanks Net. I am having the other test done so that's another reason why I'm pi**ed off as I was reading the cut off was 14 weeks which I will almost be! I just can't believe the hospital are such a shambles! Doesn't exactly fill me with confidence! I'm going to see what my midwife says when she calls. x

Hi All, Well to say I'm pi**ed off is an understatement. Got my scan appointment through from Aberdeen today and it's not until I'm 13 weeks and 4 days. The excuse they gave is they are behind because they have had a change of staff! I'm going to ask my midwife if I can move to Stonehaven if I can get a scan any sooner and if not, I'll be paying to get a private scan at 12 weeks! No wonder everyone says the NHS is falling to bits! Any of you ladies who have had private scans have any recommendat...

Hi All, Apologies for not posting lately, I have been checking in but my Granda has been very ill this past week so I've been spending a lot of time at the hospital! Maame / Bess - glad to hear your scans have gone well. I haven't had any additional scans but I'm starting to wish I had now! I still haven't heard from the hospital about my 12 week scan date and I'm 12 weeks on Saturday!! My midwife has chased the hospital twice and they just kept saying my letter was in a pile waiting to be dealt...

Hello, Can I join you on here? I'm feeling a little daft as I've been going back to the cycle buddy thread all the time but I haven't really felt like it was appropriate to post much lately. It only just dawned on me that I could actually join this thread! How is everyone? I'm currently 9wks and 1 day and still as paranoid as ever! I thought I would feel a bit more relaxed after my 7 week scan but I don't! Bess - I'm glad you asked about the pessaries as I have also be told to take them until 12...

Staceybelle - don't worry about it, you will honestly be fine. I felt a little bit of pain when she put the needle into each follicle but it was a quick prick and then it was over. Afterwards I just felt a bit tender, nothing worse than mild period pain. Everyone is different though. I also got a cup of tea and a biscuit afterwards xx

Hi All, This is going to be a bit of a write and run post - will try and log on later and properly post one. Maame - also had my scan today and I was exactly like you, my heart was pounding and I was so nervous. I thought we were getting bad news aswell as my symptoms have sort of disappeared over the last 2-3 days and I did a test this morning which I was convinced was lighter than all the rest (admittedly I did it about an hour and a half after I had already been to pee so probably not the bes...

Maame - glad you have managed to get an early scan. My 7 week scan is on 31st as they don't scan on a Saturday. Feels like so long away! Smihel - congrats on your exciting news!! I still don't think it has sunk in! I have done so many tests over the last 2 days but managed to stay away from them today! xxxxx
