Pregnant after IF

When was your first ultrasound?

Hi ladies

My first u/s isn't until 6.5 weeks. Apparently this is just when they do it at my RE's office. I feel like a lot of you have had an u/s around 5 weeks. When was your first?

  • I had my first at 5 weeks. Then another at six and my most recent at 7. Every clinic is different though.
  • Mine will be at 6 weeks and three days.  Exactly 6 weeks was booked solid.  I'm impatient...
    BabyFetus Tickerimage
  • I did not ask to go in sooner since 6.5w when my nurse said they do them. I'm mostly just excited and impatient and of course wondering how many are in there. I'm so sure right now that it's twins I'm almost scared if its not I'll be a little disappointed. If I'm disappointed I'll feel guilty for being ungrateful. Crazy, crazy emotions that go along with IF.

    I personally think going in earlier to see just a gestational sac(s) isn't really useful. It would cause more worry to not see a heartbeat, which would be unlikely before 6w. 

    This has been standard at our 2 RE clinics.

    BzeetyD = 38, Mr. BzeetyD = 44 together 12/02 married 9/08
    TTC #1 since 1/10
    DX: Unexplained/??? MFI issues

    Our lil' lost sparks:
    5w3d loss 7/30/10 - EDD March 2011
    8w loss 4/15/11 - EDD November 2011
    8w3d loss 8/2/12 - EDD March 2013
    4w c/p loss 10/29/12 - EDD July 2013

    Long story: trying on our own + testing testing testing with 6 rounds of Clomid, more testing, injectables + TI, laparoscopy - one tube blocked, 2 IUIs with Follistim...BFNs.
    RPL testing all normal, Karyotyping normal

    Moving on to IVF.

    IVF #1 April 2012 = BFN, IVF #2 June 2012 = BFP. U/S 7/23 = saw heartbeat but measuring behind. Follow up U/S on 7/30 - no heartbeat. D&C 8/2. Trisomy 12. IVF #3 Oct 2012 = Chemical Pregnancy

    Phone consult with CCRM on 12/12/12 - ODWU 1/4/13 - both tubes clear(!) - AFC 24, AMH 3.2, FSH 9.6, LH 5.4, E2 25. DH has high frag rate but improved!
    IVF #4 March 2013 CCRM. EP protocol w/ Menopur, Gonal-F & Dexamethasone. ER 3/29 & IMSI, PICSI. 43R 13M 10F 6blasts bio'd. CCS testing reveals 3 normals!!!
    FET 5/31/13 of 1 4AA blast - thawed and expanded. 4dp5dt BFP.
    Beta 9dp5dt = 181, 11dp5dt = 427. 1st u/s showed a healthy heartbeat! EDD 2/16/14

    After 4 years of hoping and heartbreak, our sweet little bean was born on 2/19/14
    We are so in love with her.

    Everybody is welcome!!!

  • Because if seeing an IF doc, I had an ultrasound & blood work every week since before I was pregnant. That is until I hit 8 and a half weeks because everything looked so good the "kicked me out"( doc was being funny). It's been 4 weeks until my reg ob could see me the first time so I'll be 12 weeks.   I can't wait to see how much the little one has changed, but I am so nervous!
