Paranoid after IVF — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

Paranoid after IVF

....I have 3 children already and DH and i just did our first round of IVF (only bc I have my tubes tied) we got our BFP and I'm currently 6wk6d....BUT I have NEVER been so paranoid durring a pregnancy in my life!!! With every milestone, 1st beta, 2nd beta, 3rd beta, ultrasound...etc I have told myself if this test comes out ok I will stop that all that is done I'm telling myself I'll feel better after I see the OB.....urgh what is wrong with me???
The only thing I can think of is that with this pregnany I read a lot more on the internet..probably because IVF is a new world to me....reading things like posts on various fertility forums and oh Google....has anyone else been in my situation and how did you overcome it???

    Is there a pregnancy after infertility treatment board? Is this not it...because I'm not really sure what board to go to since this is a pregnancy after IVF, which is a fertility treatment...this isn't just a normal pregnancy for me I'm confused on what board this belongs in?

    Thank you for that explanation! I figured this was the only place for me to post where there are woman who have been through the same "treatment" as I have regardless of what the reason for treatment (ivf) was, especially as woman in the "normal" pregnancy forums cannot relate as they majority of them have not been through IVF! I didn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings!

    Just to explain yes I do have three children from a previous marriage and durring that marriage I did chose to have my tubes tied (due to personal issues within that marriage). I am currently remarried and my husband has no children...this is the reason we chose to go with IVF.

    I have several friends that have fertility issues and are unable to have children without IVF, many who like yourselves have gone through many cycles. After going through a round of IVF I cannot imagine what you all have had to go through.....I cannot imagine having to go through the loss...and i sympathize deeply with all woman that have fertility issues and especially thoes who go through IVF cycle after IVF cycle, as it was a very stressful and took a toll on my husband and I both.

    All that being said I am just looking for advise from people who have been through the same treatment as I had gone through...I honestly wasn't looking to hurt anyone, create Ill feelings, or make people feel IF I did I do apologize!
  • Thanks you for the advise!!! I appreciate the words of encouragement!!!
  • Congratulations. FYI Secondary IF board is not for you because you already have a BFP. Their board is for those trying to get there who already have one or more children. I was on that board before this one

    I think you are in the right place, just on a different road to get here.

  • I got pregnant with my DS after our first round of IVF. We had been trying for over a year and Clomid was unsuccessful. That being said, I was a nervous wreck my entire pregnancy. I didn't tell anyone but immediate family and friends that I was pregnant until I was about 7 months along. I was suoer anxious going into every appointment and didn't feel like I was really ok until baby was born.
