What levels are important to check if 8 weeks pregnant (ivf) with history of MCs. Other than normal ultrasound scan.?
Early pregnancy: It is not clear what you mean by levels. If you are referring to blood tests you will need the basic blood work that is done during pregnancy.

I'm 8 weeks pregnant (ivf)& the US scan is normal. My doctor hasn't done any blood tests at all for me since preg. Says not imp. Shld I be worried?
Probably not: As president Franklin D. Roosevelt once said, in 1933 about 80 years ago, "... let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself..." Medicine is full of uncertainties, so one must find a doctor to trust. If that doctor says don't worry, then one must not be afraid. A good doctor will let his patient know when the time comes to worry, no sooner and no later. ...Read more

What am I supposed to see at 8 weeks pregnant, I have pcos and endometrial cancer, I did IVF with frozen embroyos?
Nausea most common: 2 weeks after ivf would make you 4 weeks pregnant. So nausea is the most common symptom. In general you should not feel anything still from the ivf with 2 exceptions. Some women can still have enlarged ovaries which can cause discomfort. And some women can be overstimulated which can cause bloating.

Hi 5 weeks pregnant after IVF no any symptoms except constipation and getting more hungrier is that normal please help me I'm so nervous.
Ultrasound: It seems it would really be helpful for you to get an ultrsound in 2 weeks. At that point, you might start to see something, a little gestational sac, for instance. It's hard, and nervewracking, but so long as you are eating healthy, getting rest, decreasing stress and exercising, then all you can do at this point is wait. It's normal to have no symptoms at this point in pregnancy. ...Read more

My wife is 32 and 12w5d IVF pregnant with NT 1.79mm and double down possibility 1/3000. Do you advise harmony test?
Personal Decision: Most women who have IVF babies will not terminate a pregnancy despite any result. In these situations, it is not worth doing the Harmony test. If you are willing to act on the result then the harmony test is helpful in any pregnancy. The NT test is normal. A 1 in 3000 risk is also low. Good luck! ...Read more
