@Audreysdance:  Good luck with your move! Portland is a great city! My sister owns a house there (but is living in TX right now) and I have some other family there as well. I can ask my cousin for an OB recommendation… she has 3 little kids. Where in Portland are you going to live?

My numbers did not double appropriately, so we are concerned about this being an ectopic pregnancy. I have very little hope for a successful pregnancy, but am at least hoping it’s intrauterine. The midwife is concerned as well and it going to try to squeeze me in for an ultrasound this week. ๐Ÿ™

Hi, I am new to this Board!

Date of BFP:  Jan 26 – when we were in Cuba on vacation!

How far along are you?  5w2d

Estimated due date:  September 30 – I just squeak into this month

Date of first prenatal appointment:  Feb 9th with my fam doc – I was already scheduled for my annual anyway.  Am still thinking about going with a midwife and have made a couple of calls, but will likely stick with the family doc

How are you feeling?  Generally good, but sore boobs.  I tried to squeeze them into my tight running bra yesterday for a workout and they weren’t happy!

Who have you told? Noone, just me and DH know.  We are paranoid about the potential for miscarriage (no prev history, first pregnancy) – I work in health care so I know a little more than I’d like about these things.

What are you reading/google searching/preparing for?  Miscarriage stats, ways to calculate due date, pregnancy symptoms

@blondy:  Welcome! Good luck!

I went to the ER today. I have had enough of feeling like complete utter crap. He gave me drugs. I hope they work. They better work! My appt is still on thurs. But he did schedule me in for a u/s, they will call me some time about when to come in. I cannot wait for that. Definitely lifts my spirits a little.

@PennyLainne:  No stupid questions. It’s a test where they take some tissue from the placenta and check the baby for downs syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities. Usually done around 12 weeks or so.

@78h2o:  oh honey I am so sad to hear about your numbers. Please be pushy and insist they get you in for an ultrasound ASAP! Even if you have to go to the ER. If yor pregnancy is ectopic you want to catch it early so you won’t risk losing a tube or other complications. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Welcome blondy! Congrats to you!

Penny: your appointment is tomorrow!!!!! So exciting. Can’t wait to hear all about it.

Not too much happening with me besides constant nausea. I actually threw up for the first time today, it’s usually just gagging. Ugh. I feel like complete crap. I have a prescription for zofran. I took one yesterday and it seemed to help, so I’m going to take another one. Can’t wait til this part is over!

I got he bloodwork results back on my first prenatal and everything looks good. I am still waiting on the genetic tests which come back tomorrow! I can’t believe I am already on week 9 and a half! So excited to get out of the first trimester! My doc said he baby is measuring 5 days earlier so I guess I’ll technically be 9 weeks tomorrow but the doc is still measuring me from my last menstral period on November 27h and says the 5 days won’t change that. The end of this month is gonna be so exciting! Come on 2nd trimester! So far so good though.

Welcome Blondy!

My appointment was good. Got lots of information. Told my Doctor that he isn’t allowed to take any holidays for the month of September. I got a nice little booklet of information that I am going to go through tonight. I also got the dates for the classes that are in the area. I cannot wait! He said my appt for u/s is good for the 6th. So I just have to be patient. He told me to keep trying the drugs that the other doc prescribed me because that is what he would have prescribed. And to just try to hold out. I do feel a little better and I haven’t hurled yet today so that is nice. ๐Ÿ™‚ I cannot wait for the 6th!

Oh and he also told me that he couldn’t feel my uterus so I should be in the clear for twins. Should only be one little baby in there making me uber ill.
