I'm 5 weeks and 2 days into pregnancy after a frozen embryo

I'm 5 weeks and 2 days into pregnancy after a frozen embryo transfer. Everything seemed to be going fine - beta hcg was increasing and had symptoms of pregnancy. Then Wednesday night - when I was 5 weeks and had just had my second beta and was told all was good earlier that day- I experienced bad cramping and bright red bleeding, including a clot. Went for an internal ultrasound on Thursday morning and the gestational sac was still present and we could even see the yolk sac. I was told it was a threatened miscarriage but at this point it was possible it was still fine.The cramping has stopped and the bleeding has changed to just brownish discharge (still with some small clots). I have another ultrasound scheduled for next week. What is the chance that this pregnancy is still viable?

Frozen embryo transfer in 5 days,but follicle detected on US

About to do a medicated frozen embryo transfer. Transfer is scheduled to take place in 5 days. US scan showed a 20mm follicle/cyst, even though I'm on 6mg progynova. BT showed no LH surge yet.Due to start progesterone tonight. Will the progesterone prevent ovulation and if it doesn't (will be doing home ovulation tests) is it still a good idea to go ahead? Endometrium is 12mm.

I am currently going through IVF and had a frozen embryo transfer

I am currently going through IVF and had a frozen embryo transfer done on December 17. At 10 days out on December 27 i went back to the clinic and received a positive pregnancy test and my first beta test of 293. I went back today and had the second beta test done at day 13 and my dr left a voicemail stating it was 381 and she would see me on Thursday, day 15 for my 3rd beta test. I am very concerned that my beta did not double in the 72 hours between the first two tests. Is my pregnancy in trouble?

My wife is getting ready for frozen embryo transfer. She will

My wife is getting ready for frozen embryo transfer. She will be taking Estrace 2mg vaginally starting about 18 days before the transfer and continuing past the transfer. They will be checking the lining of the uterus (to see if it is thick enough) about 10days after she starts taking the pills. Normally, they prescribe three times a day but they want to increase it to 4 times a day since, during the last transfer process in July of this year (resulting in unsuccessful pregnancy), the lining of the uterus was not thick enough after 10 days of taking it 3 times a day and they had to keep her on Estrace for an extra week and increase the dosage to four times a day (lining did reach the right thickness at the end of the extra week). This time they want to start four times a day from the beginning to ensure lining thickness after 10 days. Naturally, we are always nervous about taking such medicine and we are a bit concerned about the increased dosage. Is there an increased risk of adverse health effects (showing up in the future) from taking Estrace (2mg) 4 times a day vs. 3 times a day since she has to take it for at least a month if the pregnancy is successful?

I am 11 weeks 3 days pregnant and am having a low back ache.

I am 11 weeks 3 days pregnant and am having a low back ache. It is not horrible just dull and I do not feel it is bad enough to take anything . I had an ultra sound at 10 weeks 3 days and all was well with the baby. Measuring fine and fetal heart rate of 160 bpm. Should I be concerned this is the beginning of a miscarriage? I do not have any bleeding or cramping at all.

I am currently 5 weeks pregnant from an IVF frozen embryo transfer.

I am currently 5 weeks pregnant from an IVF frozen embryo transfer. there is a strong possibility of twins. i started bright red bleeding this morning and have had light spotting and have replaced a normal sanitary pad 5 times today. i have had some small clots and when I was placing a progesterone suppository this evening I pulled out two more clots about 2 cm long. One looked like a sac. i cant get scanned until Monday and I am frantic with worry. the bleeding has got lighter but is still present and I dontbhave any more cramping than normal. i still feel the same oregnancy symptoms - a slight nausea and sporadic hunger pangs. I wonder am losing a twin but think there would be more blood if it were both? please advise
