Roll Call!

Weeks pregnant/due date: 3 weeks 3 days. Due date is 13th August

Pregnancy journey: MMC at 9 weeks after trying for 11 months. This was our third cycle trying again. 

Next appt/test/ultrasound: Not sure yet – AF isn’t due until Monday so just want to get past that.

What are you struggling with: It’s still so early so trying not to get my hopes up. Also wondering whether to relax and let everything take its course, or whether to have progesterone tested etc.

What helps you: Knowing it didn’t take as long the second time round and my BFP was much earlier this time. Hoping they’re both good signs that my body is co-operating.

Roll Call!

Weeks pregnant/due date: 4 Weeks 4 Days/ August 7, 2017

Pregnancy journey: TTC since August 2015. Was diagnosed w/ PCOS in January 2016 & went on Metformin. Had 2 early losses, a blighted ovum @ 5 weeks that passed naturally, and a MMC at 8 weeks where I had a D&C. We had to TTA for 2 cycles after the D&C. The first cycle we were allowed to TTC again, I took clomid from CD3-7 & got our 3rd BFP.

Next appt/test/ultrasound: I have an appointment w/ the OB on Monday. We opted not to do any early testing or scans this time since we found it more stressful & tiring than it was worth since there’s nothing we can do to stop a loss if it is happening. Hoping to have our first scan the week between Christmas & New Years at 8 weeks.

What are you struggling with: Getting really excited/believing that this time is going to be different. I want it to work so badly.

What helps you: POAS & seeing line progression, & the fact that I haven’t had any spotting this time (the last 2 I did). I’m also trying not to stress/freak out about every little thing as much too.

So I’m 6w1d and two people have assumed I’m pregnant because I definitely look like I’m showing. 6w1d. It’s belly fat. But at least I can say, “Why, yes, I am pregnant.”

I had a scare on Wednesday night. I asked the midwife for betas since I wasn’t feeling pregnant and had some random light spotting. I freely acknowledged that it was reall to help my paranoia. I’d skipped earlier tests because, like MrsMellyBean, I usually find them to do more mental harm than good. 

My first results were 16,100. I’d forgotten my phone at home on the day of my second draw.  By the time I got back there  were three messages on my vm strongly encouraging me to go to triage for an ultrasound. they said my hcg was high and not quite doubling. i said I’d read that they shouldn’t double in 48 hours when they start it so high but they all wanted me to come in. 

It turns out that the midwife  wrote down that I was five weeks along and not six and the thought I had an ectopic pregnancy. it turns out that everything’s fine. My second HCG was 23,500 and we got to see the heartbeat. The baby was 5w6d by u/s (it was 6w by LMP), so everything looks good so far. 

It was an incredibly sressful situation but it’s such a relief to know that things are progressing as expected.

4littlekitties :  Aww the bloating is real at this stage too! I’ve already started undoing my pants at my desk. I’m sorry you had such a scare but I’m glad everything is okay with babe & you got to see a heart beat. Hope that was reassuring and you’re feeling better about it all.

Soton85 :  For sure I still do that with the pregnancy tests and I’m almost 8 weeks.  I have another ultrasound Thursday and I’m super nervous for it.  It’s like because you know what can go wrong, you are waiting for the other shoe to drop.

happy2bee :  Good luck with your scan tomorrow, I’m sure baby will be perfect. I so know what you mean. I’ve been struggling a bit the last few days, I’m so emotional and finding it hard to concentrate on anything else. It’s like I’m just waiting for something to go wrong 😞

JLBB-brooklyn :  Hey girl, how are you feeling??

 

AFM, I’m 27 weeks on Sunday and had an OB appointment this past Monday. I’ve only gained 5 pounds since getting pregnant and am just barely showing, which worries me but my doctor said was ok. I have a growth scan on 12/20, so hopefully our little guy is growing at least! I’m prepared for him to be on the smaller side because of the VCI, but I’m worried he will be <10th percentile which is what the doctors say they look for. Anyone have experience with this? I guess all I can do is wait and hope for the best!

RunnerBride13 :  I’m sorry you’re worried about not gaining enough. I have no experience with this, but I think it ‘s a good sign that the doctor isn’t too concerned about it. Best of luck & I hope the 20th comes quickly.
