Early Pregnancy After IVF: Worry-warts and wimps gather to whimper and wobble.

(388 Posts)

Yes! Happy Birthday to me indeed! Fanks for all the cake I would say 'nom-nom' and 'it was awesome!' but I would have to stab myself for being an irritating twat. I digress..

Come here, ladies who have survived IVF and are now battling the first trimester nerves and scans. We did it...we did it!! grin

Oh Beetle!! Amazing, amazing news lovely!! Two boys!! You're going to have a great time with them!!xxx

Hello slags, Prambo here! <twirls around until dress flies up showing discharge-stained knickers>

Sorry to see you all moving on but we are now grown-ups after all <sob> 21+4 here and feeling immensely happy and grateful and very, very well physically (except for painful arches, but I'm sat on my arse all day anyway so who gives a shit?) I haven't felt movement yet thanks to an anterior placenta but expecting to in the next fortnight. Wim, I'm sorry you're so rough, what a nightmare. Beetle, I wish you and those gorgeous twins an unfeasibly boring pregnancy. I hope you'll be very happy in the mental institution when they are 2 years-old grin

Motor, it was lovely knowing you and great that you're so far along with no probs. Marbie, I'll see you back on the Dark Side...wink

That's all looking positive Beetle, I think I spotted everyday until 12 weeks. When I stopped the crinone it went. Can't wait to hear your scan news x

Wim you poor thing. I totally know how you feel. 18 weeks today and not even considering coming off my meds. Without them I wouldn't be able to eat at all. Very miserable. When is the big move?x

Thanks for your kind words ladies. Defo feels more real now. Especially now I'm feeling movement. I think I just thought I'd be someone who sailed through pregnancy like every other woman in my family! There is always one though thlwink

A girl maybe how brilliant! Though a boy would be equally fab... wink
beetle glad bleeding settled - you've really been through it on that front.
motor - half way sounds amazing right now!

Here vomiting got worse and worse till at point of being admitted, managed to avoid and have spent weekend drugged at home instead. Go back this morning to see if I can stay out - think so as although nauseous still actually keeping stuff down now. At 15 weeks I really believed I would be getting better.

I've been too much of a coward to venture from this thread but will go and lurk on the IVF worriers one. Am def in that category! Have there been any grads from the egg buddies thread recently?

Thank you Motor! The 28th? Not long now!! How exciting. And likewise with you lovely on the updates x

MotorcycleMama Sun 20-Oct-13 21:50:07

A girl maybe - how lovely!
My scan is 28th Oct. I don't want to find out the sex, but I may cave in on the day. I just can't believe we're near half way!
Well, I hope to get regular updates from you whichever thread you're on. X

Sorry have been AWOL ladies, I've been a bit of a lurker of late.

That sounds scary Beetle glad it seems to have stopped now. I'm keeping everything crossed for your next scan x

How are you doing Motor? What date is your scan? Mines the 5th. Feels so weird to be almost at the half way mark. Will you find out the sex?

We had our gender scan in the week. We are having a girl! We were so convinced it was a boy thlgrin we are so happy though. It made it feel all the more real.

I was on the worriers thread for a while, but I was quite overwhelmed by it. I think it was because at the time, everyone was having issues, and I wanted to bury my head in the sand and just carry on as though I were normal. Iykwim? I may pop in and are how you are all doing though.

Love to you all

MotorcycleMama Sun 20-Oct-13 18:57:43

Sorry you had a scare beetle, and pleased it was nothing to be too concerned about. How many weeks will you be at your scan? I've got my 20 week one week after next - can't believe that will be half way through!
I look forward to you joining the worriers thread.

Hi all. Should we declare this thread redundant? Nearly a week since a post. I am on the Pregnant (IVF) worriers thread which I find very supportive - can I tempt any of you to join me over there? I do look in on the Martians thread where I can keep an eye on pram and maybe, but I can't get into it myself. I'd hate to lose touch with beetle and wim. Love to you all. X

Thank goodness for that beetle - I've been so worried that things had gone wrong. But everything is great - congratulations! 12 weeks is a massive milestone.

Sorry to hear about the ongoing nausea/sickness wim - I can only sympathise, without knowing what it is like, as I got away with it entirely. I have got a bit of a bump, though not noticeable to most people as I don't tend to wear tight fitting clothes. More obvious in the evening when the baby and uterus are fighting for space with whatever I have consumed in the day etc. How about you?

It is now 6 weeks since I last saw my baby in a scan, and 2 weeks until I see it again at the 20 week point. It feels like a life time. Luckily I am not constipated anymore, but this has been replaced by insomnia.

Hi to maybe and pram. It seems like we have lost nook and caip - any news on them? I hope they are ok.

Oh, halelujah, darling BettleBabies!

Wim, it won't be long 'til nausea is a thing of the past unless you're Marbie, poor cow Yes, 20wk bump photo now on my profile. It's pretty much a whopper shock

Oh Beetle what a relief. I'm so chuffed lovely xxx

I heard that too Wim, babies play with their cords. It helps them develop their reflexes apparently <nods head wisely>

Wimwom Sun 13-Oct-13 20:06:55

Phew beetle - I was getting worried! So pleased to see all ok with both babies. I heard that they play with their cords/get wrapped in them when small but less as they get bigger as less space to flip about... I don't know if this is true.
Here in wim land had thought nausea/vom was getting better but had a random vom this morning. Yuck. Marbs - new tablets still holding it off a bit?
Waves to motor & pram - how big are the bumps now?
