Multiple ultrasounds

I am a bit worried I had a check up scan Monday due to some bleeding and I was ment to go for nt scan the next day but when I went they just did another check up scan. As I am 13 wks today and really wanted to have nt scan so booked a private scan for Thursday. Do you think it will harm babys have 3 scans in one week as really on deadline being 13 wks already x x x

FIRST TRIMESTER CHAT - 2010

Hi I would not worry too much as I went for a scan last Wednesday and mine were small but then the following Monday had another and they had doubled! I am sure they will catch up alot of them are slow to start. If the nurse was worried she would have said so try not to worry though I know it's hard x x x

Quoted from "Gem1141" Hi Ladies!! Hope everyone is well. Can - All sound very exciting, fingers crossed all goes well for you on Wednesday :-) As for me I'm still waiting!! And I now have a funny feeling I'm going to be waiting a long time as I live in Bury and I have heard that IVF funding has been pulled No-body has offically told me this but I am worried now. Does anyone know anymore? St Marys just keep telling our letter is just waiting to be writen up. Thanks and good luck to all xx Hi Gem...

Panda on starting you tx! Are you going through long protocoll? If you are this will be why you arent going day after! You will be starting drugs (down regulating) on the 21st day of your cycle (start of period being your first). Hope all goes well and i am sure the time will fly by! x Can with the call tomorrow, you will soon be on your way xxx Gem- only thing i can think of is they may also be waiting for funding and therefore want a sperm test closer to the tx date. Just a suggestion but it ...

Hi Misty, I understand your frustration! I would call St Marys as then you will know if they have recieved your referal etc etc. I had to call for 2 weeks running after i had seen doctor about my referal as they took ages to send it to st marys. Thou i may know why you are being delayed. I recall in March/April alot of people being held up due to funding in the trafford area so i wonder if this is the reason you are having to wait. They ran out of funding at the end of the tax year so i do know ...

Hello everyone, Hope your ok and good luck on all your journeys and welcome to anyone knew, Just a quick one....... Mistykins: If you are being treated via the nhs i would chase them as by law now they have to see people within 18 weeks of referal. You must have been lost somewhere in the system, i must admit i know how you must be feeling, i was on the 'waiting list' 3 years before finding out they didnt even put me on it!!!! Just call them and never feel like you are mithering as they are used...

Holly- i think fresh and full cycle are the same? Basically you have a fresh cycle where you have egg collection transfer etc and then FET were they are fozen. I can only think that full means going from stims to egg transfer in one go as some suffer ohss which is were ovaries over stim so they end up having their eggs frozen after collection rather than having them transfered until they have recovered from ohss. Dont worry thought you arent being a pain in the neck, ask away. i have done my fai...

Hi girls and firstly welcome will try and answer best i know but i am sure the other ladies will be along shortly to give you their advice too x Accylass- I am not sure what the criteria is in your area but i am afraid i do know alot of areas wont give funding if one partner has children from a previous relationship. Unfair I know but i do know this is the criteria for most areas. Also the waiting list for icsi by law is now only 18 weeks as they have brought new guidelines in that a patient mus...
