  • Hello and welcome, friend! I know what you mean. I've had pretty steady mild cramping the last few weeks, and it is really making me paranoid. I didn't have this with any of my previous pregnancies.

    Your betas are really high though, which is awesome! Are you having a third beta done?

    Me: 35 DOR - AMH 1.1 FSH 5.6

    DH: 39

    October 2014 - Unsuccessful IUI 

    November 2014 - IUI month skipped due to cyst 

    December 2014 - Unsuccessful IUI 

    January/February 2015 - Failed IVF (standard long protocol) - 7 eggs, 6 mature, 4 fertilized (ICSI), 0 made it to blast, 0 for testing

  • Congrats on your great numbers! I'm on Mobile so I can't see your history but I can understand your apprehension.
    I'm thankfully in my 18 week and still nervous about every cramp, every bump and still checking the tp. I don't think it'll ever go away for women who have had our type of journey.
    I will tell you I had bleeding on and off through my first trimester, mine was due to two subchorionic hematomas and everything has turned out fine at this point. In regards to cramping, I also had that on and off most of the first trimester, some from ligaments stretching and then later it was more from not drinking enough water.

    I'm glad you're finally at this point in your journey, welcome to phase 2 of worrying.
