Anyone newly pregnant after fertility treatment?

I've been reading this board since getting a positive test after our fertility treatment. I'm a little nervous at posting...I've decided to wait for my scan until l tell the GP.

According to the calculator, I'm five weeks....However, what is confusing me is that I know when I'm only really three weeks (which one is right)?

I'm very nervous but trying to keep calm.

So far symptom wise, I have painful breasts, tingly nipples, sharp quite painful pains in the ovaries, lower back pain, indigestion/heartburn at night and more tired than normal.

I have the odd strong sense of smell and I'm not feeling nauseous.

Hello! I'm currently on my second IVF pregnancy. there is a pregnancy after infertility thread on here somewhere.

You will be 5 weeks - if you were 3 weeks it would be too early to get a positive test. 4 weeks would be the day of your missed period, if you were naturally conceiving.

Good luck with your early scan!

Hi bear

Then I must be further than I thought.

The date the clinic asked me to test I had a very strong positive!

I'll hop over to the other thread now

Yes come and join us on Pregnancy After Infertility! Congratulations!

A pregnancy is normally dated from date of last period which is usually 2 weeks before conception. Therefore an IVF pregnancy also gets 2 weeks added on. It's confusing but if you use 5 weeks to calculate going forwards, the dates will start to make sense.
