  • I also replied to your other post. I didn't see a HB at 6.5 weeks vaginally but my doc said not to be alarmed so I've decided not to stress.

  • Sounds like no one was expecting your news -- I think it was a great way to tell them.

    We held off until the next u/s to make extra sure everything is ok. Just a little worried.

  • How funny! Isn't it funny about the different reactions!!

    After 10 years most people have done cartwheels when we told them, but the weirdest reaction was my Nanny (My Mum's Mum), I don't think my Nanny's a very nice person, uses emotional blackmail on my Mum whenever she wants something, and never seems to appreciate all that my Mum does for her.

    Well, Nanny said 'oh that's wonderful', and then started crying. I started to think that maybe she had a soft bone in her body after all, and then she says "I'm so pleased for your Mum!" I went silent and she said "I've seen the way she looks longingly at babies, and has talked sadly about her friend's grandchildren".

    I said "well it hasn't been a bed of roses for us you know, don't you think that it's been easy for us? IVF isn't exactly a walk in the park you know!".

    Needless to say, shortly after she started to dig herself out, I ended the phone call!!
