No Lou, once we had the 7 week scan at clinic they tell you to go to your own gp then. From that point onwards its treated like a normal pregnancy. Next scan will be 20 week one, I still cant believe it Lou Im in some kind of denial. I feel pregnant and Ive seen the proof but I cant help holding back and almost not believing it to be real at all. Its really odd even o/h feels the same. x
Ps I love looking at the pics of your beautiful little girl, shes absolutely gorgeous. I bet youre having so much fun x
Thanks Claire She is the love of our lives!
Re: what you said about being in denial etc, I think that is very normal whenever there have been any fertility issues. Hopefully you will be able to relax when the pregnancy gets to a viable stage. Hugs hon. XXXX

Hope all is well

Gosh the first natural af after an IVF one is horrendous!
Please someone reply I feel like I'm talking to myself on here!
Anyone got their dates planned for their next cycle? Looks like I'll get my prostap injection late June, starting the up-reg late July. Anyone going to be my cycle buddy?

I remember mine was awful to Lc, so many big clots and cramps. Its good youre having your holiday first before jumping in again. We had a break away after our first treatment and it was so nice to get away and chill.
Ttc since December 2007!

Hello ladies, hope everyone us well.
My Af wasn't too different, maybe a little heavier. Only thing it's dragged on a bit but only brown spotting now. I think im destined to only having [*@!#%*] periods now. I only get decent amount for 2 days!
Evie I'm not much help in interpreting the results, think we'll be in same position as u about deciding to use doner eggs or not. How many tries have u had. I don't know whether to have one more go with mine.
Lc think we'll prob start the process again in mid July or August.
Booked an appointment for acupuntute on Friday to see if that makes any diff, I'm willing to try anything now. If anything it might help relaxing and dealing with stress.

Gillym i've never had IVF before, this is my one and only shot!! I'm really lucky i have 3 fab children from a nasty ex husband, these are the only decent gifts i got out of the relationship. Unfortuneatly my fantastic husband has no children, i had a reversal op in 09 but sadly it doesn't seem to have worked!! I'm 44 this sept and the clinic don't use yor own eggs once you've turned 44 so we may have no option. I just want the best chance i can. xx

Evie I can't interpret those results any better than you. Prob best to get the clinic to explain what they mean in laymans terms.
Yeah af was a nightmare this time round, loads of cramps & really heavy. Usually I am 3 days tops but this has gone on for at least 5. Like the IVF ones do. Must be residual hormones causing it I guess. But on the plus side I get really bad acne when in the treatment and at last my skin has cleared up.
Yip looking forward to the holiday. Focusing on staying fit & healthy over the next few months and taking all the vit preps in an attempt to make 5 our lucky number. Evie you are lucky to have 3 kids. We don't have any yet good luck with the donor eggs!

Evie good luck with your go, I hope it goes well for u.
Same here Lc trying to get fit and healthy and taking all my vits. Hope the holiday gets u nice and relaxed and ready for no 5. My Af after ivf wasn't that much different either it was a bit heavier but not much. Also lasted for same amount of time altho there was prob more on the heavier days tho. I never had anything put back so don't know if that affects it. My lining got to a good thickness tho which is one of the things I was worried about with such light Af.
