Hello, I have been TTC for almost three years. I have one blocked tube that did not get cleared when I had my HSG in 8/10. Started seeing an RE in 2/11. We did 5 failed iui's before moving onto ivf. I had my retrieval march 2nd and they did a day 5 transfer. They put two embryos in on march 7th, and we were lucky to be able to freeze 4. I am pregnant from the ivf with twins but have been spotting for a week. Today, it was actually fresh blood, went to the doctor, they still see the embryos, and we were able to hear the heartbeats but I am still worried. I am now getting a shot of progesterone from my husband every night. Has this happened to anyone? I am worried about miscarriage. I am 37 concerned. Anyone have advice?

Congrats on your twins!! Spotting can be pretty common in early pregnancy and there are a lot of reasons it could be happening. For one, there is increased blood flow to the cervix right now and that can cause spotting. There is a lot going on in your uterus right now. Definitely keep your doctor aware of what is going on so that they can monitor you.

One thing to keep in mind is that your risk of miscarriage does go down after seeing the heartbeat, so that is a good thing (although unfortunately, it's not gone). Try to relax and not worry too much (not worrying is impossible, I know!!). Count every day a success.

Congratulations on your twins!!! About 25% of singleton pregnancies have bleeding in the 1st trimester and they go on to have perfectly healthy babies. And even more of twin pregnancies have bleeding. Seeing the heartbeat is huge and means there is a MUCH smaller chance of miscarriage. My only advice is to try to stay hydrated, rested, eat well and generally take care of yourself.

Good luck & KUP!!!
