Ugg my first appointment is on Friday and it feels like forever away. I am also anxious because I have no idea what they are even going to do at the appointment. My doctor is not an ob/gyn so I am not sure how much I will find out on Friday or if they will just do a blood test and tell me to pick a midwife.
4 more days

apparently my betas yesterday was 30, doctor said hes okay with not getting another one done. Would it be rude to ask for one anyways? or since i see my lines progresson i should be happy at 30 for a 11dpo beta test?

mrsgiraffe15: Tests are looking good. I would ask for another beta. That number tells you nothing without the second. It needs to double and it could put your mind at ease. You need to do it 48 hours later.

I got my betas back from yesterday at 15DPO and they were 453 or 473. I go back in tomorrow to make sure they double. I’m nervous, but happy. They are way higher then my sons at this time. All the charts are all over the place, I’m sure it doesn’t mean much. but it seems highish.

LuluH: im going to see if hell requsition another one.. Not sure if he will. Im not sure if it will put my mind at ease or if it will make me more paranoid haha! dec 14 isnt too far away if i can only make it till then then hopefully i can get an ultra sound that week or right before christmas!
are you planning on announcing at christmas?

mrsgiraffe15: I will wait until after 12 weeks at least. It’s going to be hard to hide at work until then as I got a good sized bump, by 10 weeks last time. You show much faster after your first it’s crazy!

Have you all been working out since getting your BFP? I’ve been kind of nervous to, but did tonight. I just don’t want to mess anything up.
Post # 42
dancindavinci: nope i stopped! but i was also doing a full tummy work out which i know you should do too much of once youre preg!
LuluH: ugh im thinking because im so small (like 110 lb small) i might just start showing around 12!

dancindavinci: I’m going to tomorrow. I havent been but I wanted to wait for my thyroid results back (even though it doesn’t mean I can’t workout) got them back today and my TSH jumped already, so we’re upping my dose.
This might be a dumb question, but are getting betas done a routine thing? My OB didn’t suggest it or anything, just wants to see me at the end of December.

dancindavinci: Yes. I run intervals on the treadmill from 3 to 3.5 miles, 3-4 days a week and have twice since my bfp. I’m going to try to keep it up, no promises though and I did tone it down some though.

misschickpea: Mine didn’t suggest it either and my ultrasound is Dec 30th. I thinks it’s only standard if you are high risk.
