sara79:  I’m pretty sure my due date is going to change (that was based on LMP but I don’t think I ovulatated until CD 24), but I’ll wait until after my appt tomorrow to confirm!

In terms of exercise, I’ve been going to the gym and using the arc trainer (basically a cross between an elliptical and a stairmaster, kind of) and just going pretty easy on it/trying to make sure my heart rate doesn’t get too high. I will probably also do yoga soon. I used to be really into jump roping, but have given that up.

future_mrs_s:  

Roll Call!

Due date: 12/12/2014  

How many DPO were you when you got your BFP (if you were tracking?):

I have no idea!  I just had a miscarriage in March at 6 weeks and got a BFP 3.5 weeks after I stopped bleeding.  

How long did you try before your BFP?

Wasn’t really trying.  DH and I only had two chances to BD because he was out of town on business most of the month!  I was convinced I was pregnant again.  Doctor sent me for a beta with the results coming in at 59.  She thought I still had remnants from the miscarriage and ordered an ultrasound showing only a thickened endometrium And told me my hcg was just slow to drop.  Went to visit DH for two weeks and when I came back my hcg was at 30,040  I almost fell out of my seat because I was getting so frustrated wondering i wasn’t getting my period!

 

Do you have any kids yet, or is this the first?

Our first!

 

Any symptoms yet?

breasts swelled up immedietely, constantly hot, and incessant sneezing.  Oh, and around the time I would have expected my period (which I couldn’t quite because of the miscarriage) I spotted and cramped for a few days. 

ETA:  those were early symptoms.  Breasts still swollen, still crampy occasionally, moderate nausea and fatigue are what I’m dealing with most now..

 

What are you most excited about?

experiencing each day of pregnancy and meeting our LO!

 

What are you most nervous about?

Another miscarriage, although I am optimistic since I didn’t make it far enough to see the heart beat in my last pregnancy and I reached that milestone today! Baby measuring at 7 weeks 6 days with a heart rate of 176 bpm πŸ˜€

What will you miss most while pregnant? 

Probably caffeine.  Trying to take it easy on the caffeine.

sara79:  thanks!  Yes, the last three months have been a complete rollercoaster ride!  Yesterday was so amazing though.  I cried when I saw the little heart beat, it was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen!

MrsKelloggtobee:  I bet! My first appointment is Thursday (5/8) but I don’t have an u/s scheduled so we will have to see if they schedule one that day – I am going the midwife route and they tend to be a little less eager about early ultrasounds I have found out. But I’m pretty sure they will since I’m not 100% sure how far along I am. I can’t wait to get to experience that moment πŸ™‚

sara79:  wow exciting!  Looking forward to hearing about your appointment and what to expect.  I am also planning on going the midwife route, and really have to schedule an appointment today now that I know what’s going on.  I definitely wouldn’t have been able to get an ultrasound if my circumstances hadn’t been so crazy! And my circumstances were kind of similar in that while blood tests confirmed I am pregnant, I wasn’t sure of precisely how far along I am.  I was about four days off, since I don’t know when I actually ovulated or implanted.  Just when my husband and I were together πŸ™‚ it was a relief to hear that the baby is on schedule in terms of the time frame I was thinking!

MrsKelloggtobee:  I hear ya – I have PCOS so my LMP was actually Feb 9th. So based on that I would be due Nov 16th! But I definitely don’t think I ovulated until closer to the end of March based on some symptoms I was having. Hopefully I am not too far off in my guess either.

Another sad post. Found out today at my appt that I have a blighted ovum—gestational sac but no baby inside. Wasn’t ready for this since my levels based on my blood test last week indicated that all was well. I am bowing out of these boards now, but I wish you all happy and healthy pregnancies.

Magpie86:  & peaceoutcubscout I’m so sorry for your losses πŸ™

I’m starting to get paranoid because other than sore boobs here and there I still have no symptoms. Anyone else feeling almost completely normal? I won’t be six weeks til Sunday. I’m nervous bc my hubby can’t make my first apt and won’t be there for me if we get bad news :/

Magpie86:  I’m so sorry πŸ™ as terrible as it was to start bleeding I was able to prepare that I was possibly having a miscarriage.  It must have been a terrible shock to find out the news the way you did.  

My doctor advised that DH and I wait at least one cycle before trying again…we weren’t trying but we weren’t preventing and now I’m pregnant again with no cycles in between- so it can happen! And I’ve heard from multiple sources that you’re more fertile after a miscarriage.. Not sure if this is true but we were successful.  I know you guys will try again for your lo when the time is right for you! <3
