close to end of line

I just had a miscarriage at 8 weeks. We were trying for baby 2. I am inconsolable. We have two eggs left, then due to us being over 40 and living in Germany, if we want to carry on, our insurance will no longer pay half. We used up our three attempts which blessed us with our son. If it just hadnt h...

Re: Going for sibblings?

Hi all, our baby boy Adam is just over two weeks old. We had him thanks to our third round of IVF (7th try including FETs) and we are so grateful. The problem is this, we have five frozen eggs left over and the thought of them are driving me literally mad. I don't want to just throw them away, but o...

Re: April 2010 Babies

Hi everyone, not been on this much since I got pregnant, but I'm also due this month, on 26th, expecting a baby boy. With 8 days to go I'm so impatient, apprehensive, nervous, scared, excited, you name it, I'm that! Just looking for a bit of moral support. Looks like everything set for a normal birt...

Thank you everyone, you have put my mind at rest! I think it does more harm than good having all these test. I think being pregnant is always a risk, esp if you are slightly older like us, and have had ÍVF treatment. But the tests confirming it just cause unnecessary stress. At the end of the day, w...

Blood test for abnormalities positive

I had a screening for risk of Down's Syndrome a few weeks ago, and no problems were detected, but for my age (nearly 40), the risk was calculated as being high. So I was recommended to have a blood test, which came back positive. I spoke to the doctor on the phone about it today, and he said it does...

When did you feel first movements?

I'm 14 weeks today and have been feeling slight fluttery movements below belly button. Especially when am lying or sitting still. Could this really be the baby? Seems very early..

Hooray for heartbeat!!

Am at the end of my seventh week and got to see heartbeat pulsating on the screen yesterday. What an amazing moment. I read somewhere on here that is a good sign for future progress and that the miscarriage rate goes down now, is this correct? Don't have an actual rate, obviously it was normal, or I...

Ovary pain

I'm in my sixth week of pregnancy and had my first scan yesterday, which showed a sac. I'm a little worried about ovary pain on both sides, but mainly the right side. It's like a slight twinge now and again that seems to be getting stronger, particularly in the morning if I stretch or sneeze, it's b...

Hey thanks for the advice everyone, it mirrors what we've been thinking. Tell close people once we've seen a heartbeat, then tell others after 3 months. I'm so nervous. Is is normal to worry about miscarriage? What about exercise, I'm used to doing quite a lot (jogging, weights, aerobics etc). Is it...

A miracle

Never in my life thought I would be moving to this board! I still can't believe I got a BFP yesterday. So of course now I'm ecstatic on the one hand, on the other am really nervous and scared. I'm bursting to tell people, but know it makes sense to keep it quiet as long as possible. It's so difficul...

Oh my God, thanks Ghost. I did have to do hcg shots for support on previous attempts, but not on this one. I can't believe it!
