I think it's natural to worry anyway even if you haven't had a miscarriage before. Having a baby is a tricky business. When you said to book in with the doc asap, I remember when I was preg before I booked an appt when I had JUST missed my period and was told by that doctor I was way too early going to see them ! I was mortified and had to make an appt for 2 weeks later when I was 6 weeks. You don't think I'm too early going to see them do you ?

No not at all, especially with your miscarriage. With this pregnancy I saw the doctor a few days after my BFP (as it was bank holiday) then was sent to the Early Pregnancy Unit the next morning for a scan. Do not let them tell you there is nothing they can do for weeks - they can scan you (although you wouldn't see anything much until 5-7 weeks) and can give you blood tests to check your hormone. Hopefully they will understand how nervous you are after last time and will be sympathetic.

Thanks for that, I feel OK about going now. Had thoughts about cancelling the appt earlier today but am just going to go. The doctor I have now is really nice xx

Hi

I know this sounds pretty ignorant but what is the triphasic chart? Can anyone help, it has been mentioned on this thread and I have no idea what it is.

By the way congrats on your BFP, I am really chuffed for you.

Cheers

Hi Kirk,

This is how Fertility Friend explains triphasic charts:

A triphasic chart shows three levels of temperatures: pre-ovulation, post-ovulation, and then a second rise around 7-10 days after ovulation. Some women with charts that show this pattern turn out to be pregnant. But many do not. Likewise, your chart does not need to show this kind of pattern for you to be pregnant. Whether or not you are pregnant, progesterone, the hormone responsible for raising your temperature after ovulation, generally peaks in the middle of your luteal phase and this can cause this kind of pattern whether or not you are pregnant.

A triphasic chart can be promising, however, because progesterone levels generally increase after implantation (7-10 days past ovulation) in conception cycles, and sometimes this results in a triphasic pattern. A triphasic chart, however, is not a definite sign that you are or are not pregnant. It is just increasing your probability if you also have well-timed intercourse. Likewise, you can be pregnant and not have a triphasic pattern. Like all signs of possible implantation or pregnancy, you can really only speculate about it once a pregnancy has already been confirmed

Hope that helped x
