Hi everyone

Just joining this thread. Just got a BFP. I got this far last time I did ICSI in March and m/c a week later. So I am very scared at the mo and need somewhere to vent!! :cross:

I have no symptoms again which is maddening, as I feel that is the only reasurance that all is ok. I had symptoms with a natural pregnancy with DD.

I get the odd crampy or pinching pain but that could be good or bad.

I hope you are all well.

Hi Michy and congrats on your BFP!

You'll find that we all understand your worries on this thread.....and I think it is fair to say that our motto is 'One day at a time'. Every day without blood was reassuring for me.

Hi Michy
Congratulations on your BFP! I second what Jensqui says - it is definitely a case of one day at a time. Every pregnancy is different, some with symptoms, some without, so fingers crossed this one will be OK. Thinking of you.

Thanks for the kind words. I am curious what statistically the odds are for people that have a similar situ to me, happening again? If anyone happens to know? I know it probably won't help but I am one of those people who finds reality easier to get my head round than living in unrealistic hope.

Anyway I am defo trying to be positive, believe it or not!

Hi Michy,
I too had a MC in September and didn't think that this one was right at all because I had no symptoms.
Like you, I posted on this thread looking for support. The girls advised to get a scan to help relieve the worry.
It is difficult when you loose one - so we're all understanding here.

I had the scan last week and we saw the heart beat!! You'll be fine girl .. try not to worry.

By similar situation, do you mean have had one m/c? If so then you'll be pleased to hear that one m/c really doesn't alter your chances much at all. If this was your first pregnancy, with no history of m/c then you'd have an 80-85% chance of it being successful. With one m/c you still have na 80% chance. It isn't until you become a recurrent miscarrier that the odds start to decline rapidly.

Will you be having a scan at 6/7 weeks?

Morning Jensqui, rosebud, wishdust, dizzyduck (what fab names by the way!)

Thanks again, I am feeling loads of support.


Thanks Jensqui that is very great to know. Yes, I meant people that have fertility treatment and have a chemical pregnancy or m/c (I didn't know if our odds were greater than those conceiving naturally, especially if we had one).

Wishdust - that is wonderful news about the heartbeat. Wishing you a fab pregnancy. :thumbsup:

Hi Suzy glad your pregnancy and scan went well. It is funny that you think that if you just get to this stage or that stage then you will relax when in reality you never relax again!! After they are born there is one worry after another!! Welcome to motherhood.

I am still feeling nowt. So still a bit flat about it but trying v. hard to remain hopeful!

Michy - chin up! I didn't feel much either. I had no morning sickness, no bump for ages and ages (its huge now tho1), no cravings. I didn't feel anything until a week or two after my 20 week scan either and now it is moving all the time. Everyone is different so don't give up hope. Even now people keep saying my bump is small for how far along I am but every time the midwife measured it, its spot on. The only thing I had earlier on was constipation!

Hi Michy - Try and stay hopeful and positive. I know how hard it is to stay upbeat when every day seems to bring a new worry. BUT worrying really depletes you of very much needed energy!
I have a repeat scan tomorrow as my first one last week was not good. We're prepared for a conclusive poor result tomorrow but secretly praying for a Christmas miracle!! I hope that you get wonderful news to see you into 2010! :D

Thanks girls nice to hear your hopeful words.

Chatterbox, I am gutted that you had a disappointing scan!!?? But surely they can't tell if you are going back. It must mean there is hope? :pray: I will keep my fingers crossed for you :heart:

I had a dreadful couple of days so ill so much pain - nothing like it since I was a child. Taken to see emergency doc - v bad ear, throat and chest infection :poorly: only paracetamol which did nothing! Today pain has gone just bad cold and cough. Mum has been an absolute star nursemaid, cook and cleaner. DH v good too!! Of course panicked today thinking all the illness, stress and lack of sleep has damaged LO so did HPT. Thank goodness v strong line [zx050]

I am now thinking I am quite emotional and seem to have gone off sweet foods which is big for me!! Or am I just trying to see some signs :snigger:

Love to all xx

nope, no word from Elvis - baby MUST be here though so probably sleep deprived (but blissfully so) and no time to update us yet!

keep positive Michy - no signs to say that anything is going wrong in there.

Nope, no twinges or signs of baby coming.Al says it is just too comfy in there! I reckon it will be a 2010 baby, though I would really like it to come on Hogmanay as there is a blue moon that day!

Hi Tinkerbell!
Happy New Year! Here's hoping it will be a great year for all FZers. So sorry to see what you've been through already - great news that the heartbeat is strong! I think the milestones of where we lost previous pregnancies are the hardest, but as each one passes we are one step nearer to our babies! Good luck for your next scan which will bring you a step nearer to that magical 12 weeks.

Hang in there Jensqui, know it must be hard I am impatient now! there is no reason at all why everything will not be fine fro you, they will come when they are good and ready! take care xxx

Hi Ladies,

Hope you don't mind me joining you ... I have a cautious BFP .. tested today .... not really sure how i feel .... i'm excited but so scared as i m/c last feb 09 and had a non viable pregnancy .... all of which makes me very apprehensive until the scan date so that i can atually see for myself whether I truly am pregnant with a baby .. not just my body and the drugs playing tricks on me.

For me my milestones are the 21st Jan .. first scan to see if if all is well and then 12 weeks when i can start relaxing.

Welcome Nicola and congrats on your BFP. Just try and take one day at a time and hopefully as time goes on with every scan / check up you will be reassured. Its completely normal to be nervous and when we have been through what we have. I think we will always worry. I still dont quite believe I am having a baby now even though I have seen and feel him, I dont think I will actually rest until the LO is here!

Take care and keep talking on here it does help xx

Hi Nicola
Great news about BFP! No reason why this one shouldn't stick, try to remember each pregnancy is different. One day at a time is the way to go - for people who have experienced a loss, it is alwsys going to be difficult. Just hang in there, try to think positively and hopefully your 1st scan will reassure you that all is well.

Good luck Nicola
like the others say, every pregnancy is different but we can all identif with the anxieties you have. try keep yourself busy as its just to easy to focus on your BFP and nothing else.
Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy and let us know how you are getting on.
Hey Jen - hope all is okay with you. I remember around the time I was due that it really felt so surreal that I was actually going to have a baby, and it wasnt until she was placed on my chest that I really breathed a huge sigh of relief, just know that we are all thinking of you and sending you much love and support.
Take care

Hello Ladies,

I do hope I'm in the right place and you don't mid me joining you for a moment, or hopefully longer.

I will give you a bit of history before I ask for some advice if that's ok?

I had a m/c a couple of years ago with my previous bf and my currnet partner and I decided to start trying for children. A little while later on nothing had happened so we went for our tests with the GP and his SA results were terrible (4% normal forms and barely any of them moving) and I had a day 21 test showing only 17.6 progesterone level. Obviously nto good so we were referred to Liverpool Women's Hospital for fertility treatement. Well, after a lovely long weekend away at New Year I suddenly find myself with a hugely surprising natural BFP, just before I go for a HSG - even the doctor said he thought we must have a good milkman and my bf wants to call the baby Jesus as it's such a miracle!

Anyway, it's early days and I am so terrified of m/c again that I read up on them and one of the reasons for early loss is low progesterone so I went to my GP for advice. They rang the hospital who said it wasn't a concern (but in all honesty they didn't seem to know) so the following morning I went to the hospital to try and grab 2 minutes with a doctor and they eventually said they won't give me progesterone because they won't interfere with a natural pregnancy, so even if they could help prevent a miscarriage, they would rather sit and wait for it to happen! Crazy! Anyway, I went back to my GP, who, to put my mind at rest sent me for a progesterone blood test which I am waiting for the results of at the moment. I am 38 days - v early days!

My questions relate to the twinges I am feeling - just like last time. I am getting occassional period-like pains, like a sudden 'contraction', just one or two a day, but then nothing happens, I'm not bleeding or anything yet and still have the heartburn. My boobs have been sore but have seemed to ease today so that makes me think the hormones are decreasing instead of increasing. Has anyone else felt like this and got further down the line or should I resign myself to the fact that this is likely another loss?

Many thanks in anticipation of your advice.

Hi lollipop!
Sorry to hear of your previous loss and big congrats on your natural BFP! It's so hard to tell this early and its such a pain that the symptoms of early preg are v similar to those of m/c. At this stage itis so easy to read into what you are feeling but the only way to find out for sure is to wait until you are about 6 or 7 weeks and have an ultrasound scan to see what is going on. Its good news that you aren't bleeding and sore boobs can come and go throughout pregnancy.
Regarding the progesterone - after my experience with tests I'd say don't worry too much about it. When I was being tested my readings were all over the place, as was my FSH and the AMH test (number of viable eggs you have left). I initially put all my trust in the tests and had just about given up hope when I started getting natural BFPs. Unfortunately the first 3 ended in m/c but I am now 37 weeks and hoping my little miracle will be delivered safely in the next few weeks. Low progesterone can be a factor in m/c but there are lots of differing views on it out there and many docs seem to think that giving progesterone supplements only delays the inevitable and therefore won't do it.
All my m/cs were completely different, some with pains, some bleeding, some nothing at all. Similarly with this pregnancy, I didn't have a huge amount of symptoms. As I'm sure the others will say, I just think you have to treat each pregnancy as a completely new experience and fingers crossed that this time things will continue.
Wishing you loads of luck and really hope this one goes all the way.

Thanks Dizzyduck,

It's good to know in a strange way that I just have to wait, not that it is virtually guaranteed that these pains mean a loss. Incidentally I have trapped a nerve in my back so I am lying down anyway.

I want a fast forward button on my life until it either goes or I get to 12 weeks and can be delighted!

Good luck with the birth!

Hi All,

I know you probably think I am being overwrought and paranoid but I just wanted to see if anyone else has had this experience before. I am 5 weeks, 5 days and yesterday I had no energy, had loads of acid reflux, constipation, sore boobs was a hot, hormonal wreck and even craved red meat (Im veggie) - believe it or not I was happy with that as it was reassuring that I felt pregnant. Today I feel no sore boobs, have no elevated temperature, cravings, or emotional issues. I even have a slightly upset stomach. I am thinking it is not a good sign - more like hormones getting less than increasing. Has anyone else felt this yo-yo-ing or did you feel the drop in symptoms prior to loss?

For anyone who read my post above , my progesterone result at 5 weeks and 2 days was 30.0 too, which I feel is low - does anyone know if it is or not? When I re-raised this with my GP they said a Gynae registrar at our local hospital told her it was no longer policy to give out progesterone, so I've just got to wait for a miscarriage (please no) and then two more (oh my god, do they have any idea how hard it was to concieve in the first place!?) before I could get referred for any sort of investigation into loss. It's all so frustrating and worrying!!

Hey Lollipop
When I was TTC on Clomid I was told that progesterone of 30 or above was good for a viable pregnancy, so 30 sounds good to me. As for symptoms being all over the place, as DizzyD says, everyone and every pregnancy is different. In the early days I had no syptoms at the beginning and then onlyj some, some days at about 8 weeks on wards. Its so difficult to know whats going on in the first weeks and all you can do is wait and try not to drive yourself and your DH nuts!! I had a really great doctor and was able to have early scans, one at 5 and 8 weeks and this really helped put my mind at ease, is there anyway you could be seen at your local Early Pregnancy Unit??
Best of luck with everything,

Lollipop - I'm sure my progesterone was lower than that sometimes and higher at others but not much. highest was about 42 I think, lowest 17. The last time I had my FSH measured just before BFP number 1, it was 17 (the one before it was 8) which is very high. I really do think you have to take some of these figures with a pinch of salt - all they provide is a snapshot of that moment.
Regarding scans, if your hospital won't do an early one, get one done privately. I did and it cost about £70, whihc is expensive but much better than 'waiting to miscarry' (I can't belive they said that to you - it's awful!). I'd wait til about 7 weeks if you can bear it as you'd have more chance of actually seeing something then. We first saw heartbeat at about 8 weeks.
Good luck and try to stop worrrying about symptoms, you'll drive yourself nuts!

revival of this chat thread???

hi
im too petrified to post in the 1st trimester chat as last time my bfp was stolen from me at 6w1d and this, my 4th ICSI cycle has resulted in a very late and very low HCG level so i darent post about having a BFP anywhere else.

hoping there are other ladies who are in a similar situation that would want to chat here. its been a quiet thread since january 2010 so i hope im not the only one hoping to get past 7 weeks

ive had brown spotting on and off since 11dpec then every day since 17dpec. im hoping and praying it is down to hormones and not doomed to fail or be a chemical or ectopic.
im preparing for the worst. but my bloods did double from 27 on 17dpec to 66 on 19dpec. poor start and coupled with the brown stuff i can only hope n pray

so scared to do anything energetic or eat badly!

hope im not just whittering on to myself!

Hey hon,

I'll join you on here! Just about 2 1/2 wks til our scan, hoping it will fly by in one way but then at the same time don't want it to come so that if it's bad news we can still live in hope! What are we like! I'm not sure if I over did it a bit today lifting and throwing around my godson but also can't sit still all day and feel like should be moving to keep blood flowing. ERRRR i just wish someone could say if you do this everything will be fine. Job done. If only!

Fell asleep during Wagner last night! Was only about 10pm!

Not sure if you got my PM but was asking what you were going to do about going to your GP, will you wait til after your scan or go before? I can't decide what to do. Think I might just wait and risk getting a later booking in appt/scan. Although I think at the Southern they now do your booking in appt and scan at the same time, so that will be about 12 wks.

Hope you're having a nice day ;)

hya julz
im phoning the clinic today to see if i can get more clexane and gestone then its off to the big city to collect it
i was tidying up the bathroom and weighing up doing a CB when i found a internet cheapie "supposedly 25iu" test so at 9pm i used it. and got a bfp! so that reassured me a little.

the next 2.5 weeks are gonna be hell and i need to prep 4 the worst news.

i was gonna go see my GP on wednesday to ask what the process is. never got that far last time :(
im hoping he will sign me off but my gp's always insist on a self cert for a week. wish it was a different practice as the chef from my work can get signed off at the click of his fingers!

anyway i am clueless about where i would book in. there is a mat hosp near us (50 mins drive) in the alexandria VOL with an early pregnancy unit. but they are sticklers for GP referrals. think i may ask the gp but wait till after the scan as im petrified it is ectopic.
cant find much info here on ectopic as in the signs n symptoms. but the brown stuff is still with me *sigh*

wish i could get to bed early- as you know DF is currently on self cert sick and has been up till 1-2am each night. but at least im getting a long lie till after 10am

sounds like great fun with your godson, it will have kept your blood flow active so dont worry

Hey hon,

Looks like it might just be us on here ;)

Got your PM as well. Good that they are going to see you but totally know what you mean as well, as long as we have no bleeding and haven' t had scan yet there is always the hope that everything is ok. Will keep everything crossed for your bloods and scan if they give you one. Good though that you got a BFP on the IC! I've run out of tests and trying not to buy anymore, they didn't seems to do me any good the last time.

I don't really know anything about ectopic, but from what I do know, if it were by now you would likely be in a lot of pain. So hopefully it's not that and it's getting stronger everyday.

I still can't decide what to do about the GP, think I might just wait til after the scan and see what happens. I am reassured by the high HCG but all it means is that it as well developped at the time, says nothing about whether it will continue to. Who knows, a couple of days and it will just be 2 wks til the big day! I quite like that it's a Thurs and that my weekly day is a Tues, so on Tuesday i hit 6 wks, then just a couple days til Thursday when it's a wk less to the scan, then have the weekend and before you know it it's Tuesday again and so on and so on, if that make sense!

Still kind of forgetting that I am pg! Doesn't feel real at all.

So tired today, have been nearly falling asleep all day long! Early to bed for me I think, but then didn't sleep too well last night cause kept needing to pee! THen had to get up at 6am to do my pessary! Anything to get this lo to stick around!

its just bloods tomorrow and i dont expect them to be above 500
better no be scan as i aherm newshy havnt done any pruning downstairs and i can braid!!! lmto

i could give you a cb! i have 2 cb's and a digital! i think knowing they are there and i can use them is stopping me poas. also im scared the lines will be lighter and i will panic.

hows your symptoms? from before OTD until today ive had no soreness with boobpoke
apart from twinges at the ovaries and tonight a fullness feeling ive had nothing! apart from that rotten brown yuck!

i still cant bloomin stop sneezing! its been well over a month ive been spluttering on an hourly basis and i cant pinpoint anything thats causing it! petrified im gonna sneeze out lo!!!

julz i think you should go to the gp, but stress your previous experiance. you will be over 8 weeks at scan and i will only be just over 7. hmm im sure they should have left me till the monday!

good luck with getting some sleep, have you got something that helps you sleep? i just need to do a few sodoku's and my eyes get heavy!

Hey,

How did today go? Did you get the results today or do you have to wait until tomorrow?

I might have been bad and picked up an HPT at asda today! Think I will wait though til maybe the weekend or next week. Don't know why I torchure myself! Will have a think about the GP. Can't go this wk anyway cause too busy at work, so maybe will wait until next week and see how I feel.

Boobs aren't really sore, feel a bit like touching a bruise when I poke them and when walking just feel aware of them, but I wouldn't really say sore. But generally still nothing. Not really having problems getting to sleep, it's more needing to pee in the middle of the night which is waking me up. But not gonna complain. 6 wks today and just over 2 wks til scan date. Can't believe it, actually really dreading it!

Had a dream though last night that I had to go to hospital and they were checking my head saying I had a soft skull and that I might have too much fluid in my brain and I had to tell them that they had to be careful cause I was pregnant which is really wierd cause I haven't really admitted it to myself yet but seems my subconsious is aware of it! 2nd pregnancy dream I've had in the last week! last one was scan and seeing two babies and then giving birth to two healthy girls at 5 wks?!? (Though have just watched the Backup Plan! so maybe put some thoughts into my head!)

Well tonight as soon as done with pessary will be a cleaning fest as parents are coming tomorrow.

Hope all went well today!!

lol no way u r soft in the head!!
strange dreams here too, tho of a rather racy content pmsl must be coz i aint getting any!!

my boobs are not sore either.
ive been trying to be so careful and not overdoing things. then tonight i walked thru to the bedroom - which was a tad untidy and i tripped over some stuff n went sprawling, bent my toes under, fell over the bed and wallopped my face into the excersize bike!! fkn damned near passed out with the pain!! had to get my head between my knees and breathe coz i was almost ko'd.
oh it hurts! toes are swollen n red and i ache all over! i tried to save myself and in the process must have used every muscle in my body and i feel like an old lady!!
petrified i have done some damage but trying not to stress over it.

as 4 gp- i made an appointment 4 2morro morning but im gonna cancel it first thing. no point till i know how my bloods are.
at the clinic today it was dianne again who i saw, she is lovely. gotta wait for the call between 2-4pm tomorrow. im hoping coz my 2nd name starts with B i will be one of the 1st calls.
im really scared for this call. it will either mean there is still hope or i will have everything whipped from under me. oh i wish i still had some internet cheapy poas so i could be prepared for the call. im not going near the CB's, yet, maybe by the morning i will have relented! lol

do u get to see much of your parents? mine have our other cat- she is hairy and they took her after EC as im allergic to hairs- and are always dropping round n vice versa.
hope u managed to get your house spick n span- but no hoovering huni!

hope u get a better undisturbed sleep- needing to wee more is a good sign.

oh dear! I'm totally the same, the other day I was going up the stairs and turned round to shout something to DH downstairs, floor came our from underneath me and fell down a couple stairs, was so sore! Desperately tried to grab anything to break my fall and burst into tears in pain and upset in case I damaged anything! What are we like! A couple of pairs of muppets!

Keeping everything crossed for you for tomorrow. Hopefully they don't keep you waiting too long.

House is tidy but not up to my normal standard but they will just have to understand. Not to worried, it's my parents so they will understand. In fact my mum will likely offer to clean up! Have done the down stairs and made their bed, just need dh to get home from work to do the hoovering and the bathrooms. Hope he's home soon and has the energy to do it and gets it done before I fall asleep so he doesn't keep me up, not likely now it's so late ! Well he has had since Sunday to do it so no sympathy to him for leaving it to the last minute as usual!

In fact, i'm off to bed now, pooped!

Night night and really hope it is good news tomorrow!!! :fingers crossed:
