Hi Kathryn<br><br>Well, Im 10 and a half weeks pregnant with one baby. Feeling in shock still. We were incredibly lucky and had a bit of a miracle. We did our first cycle of ICSI, and I had a bio-chemical pregnancy, so basically the embryo implanted but then stopped progressing, so I had a very heavy bleed, and that was that. We'd been trying to conceive for 5 years and were heartbroken, although were very comforted by the fact that we nearly got there as to us it felt like at least something could be done (and im sure that for you, God forbid it is sad news when you're scanned), you'll feel similar. Anyway, two weeks later we went away, and I drank loads, smoked ridiculous amounts, had a chest infection and was knocking Nurofen back like they were smarties. and yep, you guessed, when we came back, i still felt rough so my GP told me to do a test and it was a positive. As someone who used to get really p'd off by people saying "relax and it'll happen", I now wonder if for a few lucky ones, its actually true. Im anxious about the 12 week scan but thinking that Ill deal with things if I need to. Don't think i'll truly relax though, until little Herbie is safe with us.<br><br>Just remember, it aint over 'til the fat lady sings, and Im not singing! (and nor can I sing!!!!)<br><br>Are you feeling any of the typical symptoms like sore boobs or anyting, or tired?<br><br>Loads of love to you and your DH<br><br>Love<br><br>Rachel<br>x
