Betas (round 1) came back just now: HCG at 21.7, go in tomorrow for draw #2. I guess that’s in line for being about 3weeks. I’m at 14DPO right now, I typically get AF today/maybe tomorrow if it pushes a little.

 

Progesterone came back at 9.8, which for 3weeks she said was fine, but needs to get up around 11 for the first trimester… so they’ll keep testing that, too.

 lotus11 :  ooh thanks! That’s interesting! I usually take sambucol when I feel rundown, which turns out is mainly elderberry, but the jury’s out on whether sambucol is safe during pregnancy. What a minefield! I bought some Nasalguard flu balm today which is supposed to trap the virus before it gets you?? Sounds..sort of legit.

I can’t believe I’m doing this!

Age/partner’s age: 31/30
Baby #1
Cycles TTC: 1
BFP story: I didn’t think we’d be lucky enough to get a bfp our first try. After reading lots of early successful positive tests on Feb POAS, I gave in and tested 12dpo. Faint line on a cheapie in the AM, then a very convincing line on a FRER in the PM.
How many weeks / EDD? Based on when I ovulated, due 24th October.
Team Green or finding out the sex? Trying to convince my husband that we should leave it as a surprise.
When are you telling people? Any special plans in doing so? I’ll be visiting my mum interstate in a couple of weeks, so we’ll tell her then. Tell husband’s parents around the same time. Everyone else will have to wait until at least 12 weeks most likely.

My tests at 12 dpo are progressing and my temp shot up last night so I’m going to rollcall.  I’m still waiting for that blazing positive but I hope it is here by 14 dpo. AHHHHHHHHHH

 

ROLL CALL:

Age/partern’s age: 26(27 in april)/27

Baby # 1

Cycles TTC: 2

How many weeks/EDD: 3 weeks plus 5(v early)/ October 26

Tream Green or finding out the sex? I’m not sure! I’d love to be team green but MH wants to find out, we shall see!

When are you telling people: MH knows I got a few super squinters but today the test seems a bit more convincing, even though it’s not super dark yet, so I’m going to put it in a gift bag for Valentines day with a few other things.  

I dont know when we will tell everyone else.  I live in GA and most of my family and friends live in NY.  I want to tell everyone in person but don’t want to wait until i’m like 6 months.  I might make a special trip up to NY!

 

I have to call the doctor today and make an apt and reading how a lot of people didn’t get insane progression right away is making me calm down a little.  I’M SO EXCITED and i have so many questions that i can’t put into words.

tastastic :   jaybear :  congrats ladies!! Welcome! And yes don’t worry tooooo much about rate of line progression. It takes the hcg at least 48 hours to double. I tested every 2 days, no more and that helped me from going all anxious and crazy 😜

As for me, i *finally* have my first OB appointment this morning at just under 7 weeks. No ultrasound so just some blood tests and genetic screening questions, I think. It’s hard to shake the underlying fear that something might be wrong, but I don’t think this appointment will help me with that. Ultrasound is in 2 more weeks and I can’t wait to hopefully see a heartbeat!! I’m still feeling pretty good in general – mainly just really tired at night, with sore boobs and more frequent peeing and occasional queasiness.

Oh bloody hell, I had some ginger yesterday and today I’ve got some very light brown spotting. Has anyone else experienced spotting along with mild cramps?

PS happy valentine’s Day everyone!

KittyYogi :  Thanks! This is all so unreal to me.  I hope your tests turn out perfect.  I bet hearing the heartbeat will make you mroe relaxed and make it more real.

marriedbliss : I am no help but I hope it is totally normal and everything is okay

 

  I just called my ob and made an apt.  She said they like to see people between 6 and 10 weeks and then she told me to come in March 8th!  that’s so soon, I’ll be 8 weeks.  I can’t wrap my mind around it

We have several babes that have EDD right befoe Halloween! Exciting!

 

ATM: still waiting on results from 2nd beta draw this morning. Feeling optimistic right now actually, have had some extreme exhaustion at night. Like, the kind of tired you feel when you have the flu and you just MUST SLEEP NOW kind of feeling. Officially hit 4w1d according to my app and took another HPT last night and the line is ever so slowly progressing. Also, period is officially late so that is one more step closer to baby in my mind. FX that my hcg levels double, maybe even triple and I can relax a little!

 

In other news, DH is now convinced that we need a bigger house with an extra bedroom– so he’s been on the house hunt all week and I’ve been too tired/anxious about the hcg results to stop him

marriedbliss :  Still waiting on them. The dr office is notorious for being slow to respond, so I asked for a rush to be placed on it. We’ll see if they actually do that

stringofpearls :  Awesome! I’m sure you’re just as excited as me, it seems unreal.  Can’t wait for it because then it will feel real and concrete.  I just feel normal right now, apart from sore boobs.
