I had my first ultrasound last Friday at 5 weeks 5 days. There was a third smaller sac with nothing in it and the tech said it could just be blood and she was fairly certain it wasn't another gestational sac. She didn't seem to think it was a big deal. Did yours look similar to the gestational sac, ...

Welcome, Excited-in-LA and Ivy, and congratulations! Excited-in-LA - my first beta was also really high at 621. Cautiously optimistic is exactly how we've been feeling with our pregnancy. Best wishes and let us know how your beta levels progress. Ivy - I don't have much for symptoms. I do get a litt...

Hello, ladies. Sue - your beta levels sound really good. Congratulations! The wait for the ultrasound is a hard one. I do plan to exercise and have been starting back slowly for now with just walks with our dog. Our ultrasound today still leaves me feeling uneasy. There were two larger sacs, but onl...

Welcome aeb and wondercat! I'm on progesterone but they're the vaginal tablets so no lumps for me. Our first ultrasound is tomorrow. I don't know why I'm so nervous. I guess just hoping everything is all right and the idea of finding out if we're having one or more. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a...

Hi, Sue. Great to hear from you. My retrieval was Feb. 15 so according to the calculator I'm due Nov. 8. I understand completely how you feel being stressed and worried still with each hurdle. I keep wondering if I'll ever find a way to relax! I'm happy to have an ultrasound early but am just hopefu...

November 2009 babies?

Hello! Just wondering if there are any November mommies-to-be out there. We received our first positive beta on March 2 and have our first ultrasound scheduled for this Friday. We are very anxious! My beta levels have been very high so we're wondering if we'll have twins. I would love to hear from s...

beta question

My DH and I received a BFP this week and are incredibly elated. We had a 5dt of 2 blasts. My first beta was 10 days after our transfer and was 621. Today will be my second beta test. Does that number seem average or high?

1st time IVF/spotting

I'm new to this board and to IVF. This is our first time and we've made it through the 2WW. Tomorrow is my blood test. I had 7 eggs with 6 fertilizing. Two became blasts and we had a 5dt on 2/20. The other four did not make it to freeze. It has been so hard not to stress during the wait. I started s...
